What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are synthetic tooth replacements that mimic the appearance and function of teeth and their roots. Implants themselves are small, screw-shaped titanium posts that are surgically placed into the gums, where they integrate and fuse with the jaw-bone overtime to act as a tooth root. Once fusion has occurred, a crown is placed atop the implant to act as a replacement for the missing tooth or set of teeth. Dental implants can be used as singular tooth replacements or replacements for large sets of teeth. The latter type of replacement is performed using a special technique where dentures are affixed at targeted locations to two or four implants spanning the entire gum line on both the top and bottom sets of teeth.
What Are The Benefits?
There are several benefits of dental implants that make them a great choice for patients dealing with missing teeth. Firstly, dental implants are permanent. Once an implant has fused to your jawbone, it is virtually impossible to lose or remove without surgical intervention. Dental implants are also more durable than any other tooth replacement system offered today, which makes daily activities and care a breeze: simply do what you’d do for your natural teeth. On that same note, dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, making them an excellent solution for those wanting a natural-looking smile.
What Can I Expect
From My Dental Implant Procedure?
If you are wishing to schedule a dental implant procedure here at Euclid Dental Center, our dental team with sit down with you and perform a number of diagnostic exams to make sure that your gums and jaw are able to undergo surgery. On the day of surgery, our team will place the titanium implants into the gum so that they can properly fuse with the jaw bone. This process can take up to three months. During this time, we will fit you with a set of temporary teeth to wear over your implants. Once fusion has occurred, our dental team will then see you for a second appointment to attach your permanent new teeth onto your implants.
Euclid Dental Center offers a full array of dental services to help you maintain healthy teeth.
