But even if you can’t avoid losing a tooth, did you know that there are restorative ways to fill in the gap left in your teeth?
Dental implants, usually made of titanium, are screw-like artificial tooth root replacements.
They are surgically placed in the jawbone and act as the anchor of a replacement tooth. Dental implants also hold dental bridges and dentures in place.
At Deer Park Dental Surgery, we offer a variety of treatments, including implants, to help you restore your smile and protect your teeth from further irregularities.
Who Are Ideal Candidates?
If you have one or more missing teeth, you might consider getting dental implants to replace them. But dental implants are not for everyone. Listed below are the qualifications to get dental implants:
If you have a fully grown, healthy jawbone
If you don’t have gum diseases like abscesses, gingivitis, or periodontitis
If you don’t have conditions that affect bone healing like Osteogenesis imperfecta
Benefits Of Dental Implants
Missing teeth cause discomfort in speaking and eating. If the gap is left unfilled, you might end up with misalignment of your teeth and develop a ‘bad bite’. We don’t want that to happen.
Deer Park Dental Surgery is here to help you restore the smile you have lost. We cater to patients from Deer Park and the surrounding areas.
Procedures During Dental Implantation
Consultation. Before anything else, initial consultation with your dentist is conducted. It is followed by a series of examinations and a discussion of the recommended treatment plan.
The dentist will present the suggested procedures and the corresponding costs.
Surgery. The next procedure is the instalment of the implants through surgery. A metal screw-like implant is placed in the drilled part of the bone.
You will wait for 4-6 months for the implants to be fully integrated to your bone.
Your dentist will take impressions and create a model for the new crown or bridge.
Placement of the permanent crown. The new crown or bridge is then attached to the exposed implant to make it look, feel, and function just like natural tooth/teeth.
