Why Get Dental Implants?
Dental implants are unlike any other type of tooth restoration because they fuse to the jaw bone, similar to natural teeth roots. This fusion stimulates the bone when chewing, preventing jaw bone atrophy that can occur because of tooth loss. Dentures and bridges, on the other hand, rest on the bony ridge in the mouth and do not preserve jaw bone integrity. This leaves you susceptible to jaw bone deterioration and facial sagging.
You should replace dentures and bridges every few years due to wear and tear but with proper care, your dental implants can last a lifetime. There are no adhesives or cleaning products necessary to care for your implants. Simply brush and floss your implants along with your existing teeth to keep them clean and healthy.
Types of Dental Implants
At Innovative Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, we offer many implant treatment options. During your consultation, we will examine your unique needs to determine the right implant for your smile.
- Single Tooth Replacement. We can insert a dental implant anywhere you desire a new tooth as long as there is sufficient jaw bone to support it.
- Multiple Tooth Replacement. With multiple implants or an implant-supported bridge, we can restore as many teeth as you need anywhere in the mouth.
- Same-Day Implants. When extracting a tooth, we can insert a dental implant at the same visit, which saves you time and money.
- Zygomatic Implants. If you cannot receive traditional implants, you may still qualify for zygomatic implants, which are inserted into the cheek bone.
- Full-Arch Restoration. Using as few as four implant posts, we can restore one or both arches of teeth with a fixed denture.
- Overdentures. Similar to full-arch restoration, overdentures are removable dentures that fasten to dental implant posts.
Dental Implant Procedure
When you visit our office for the first time, we will take 3D scans of your mouth and talk about your treatment options, including the type of anesthesia you would like for your procedure. Many patients undergo IV anesthesia for dental implant placement. After we create your custom plan, you will return on a different day for surgery.
During surgery, your oral surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue and insert the titanium dental implant post. We will place sutures as necessary, and a prearranged driver must take you home after surgery.
It will take several months for the implant post to heal. You will return to our office for a second procedure, where we will uncover the implant and attach an abutment if this was not done during the first visit. We will place a temporary crown over the implant post. Once the soft tissues heal, your dentist will attach your final crown, completing your dental implant treatment.
