What are dental implants?
Dental Implants are a titanium post that integrates with the bone to provide support for crowns, bridges or dentures. You also might find yourself wondering if Implants are a good option for you, a few factors are taken into consideration when choosing a treatment option such as having Dental Implants placed. Dr. Wright will evaluate the bone to see if the patient has enough bone for the implant to be able to integrate. He does this by using a 3D scan that provides exact measurements for the planning processes.
Once we establish if the patient is an eligible candidate to receive an implant it is performed under local anesthesia and can typically be done at our office and you can return to work as soon as that day. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any post-operative discomfort you may have.
After the implant is placed Dr. Wright will monitor your implant for the integration with bone; once healing is finished the final restoration can be placed. There is no extra maintenance that comes along with having a dental implant.
Dental Implants Are Like Having Your Tooth Back
Instead of just filling the space left by a missing tooth, dental implants replace the entire tooth, including the root. Because dental implants are rooted in bone, and because they integrate with your natural jawbone, they keep your bone healthy and prevent deterioration due to tooth loss. Dental implants also look just like a natural tooth. Dr. James Wright meticulously matches dental implants to your surrounding teeth.
Dental Implants Are Low Maintenance
If the idea of cleaning around a dental bridge twice a day for the rest of your life is unappealing to you, you will love dental implants. Single dental implants require the same type of care as your natural teeth – brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleanings are usually enough to prevent gum disease and keep your implant healthy.
Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime
Because dental implants fuse with your natural bone, the implant post can last a lifetime. Implant crowns may crack, or become damaged, but we can easily replace the crown, leaving the dental implant in place.
Gum and bone disease are the only common threats to your dental implant’s health. Maintaining healthy gums and addressing any gum disease early is essential. Otherwise, you are looking at a dental treatment that will last for decades – or even a lifetime.
