Protect the Health of Your Smile
One of the added benefits of dental implants is how they help stimulate jaw bone health and bolster volume. Shortly after tooth loss, a process called resorption begins in the jaw bone. Because the bone does not receive the stimulus that a tooth root provides while chewing, it begins to atrophy. This weakening of the bone can pose a threat to other teeth, as it can change the structure of the face, with patients often experiencing a sunken and aged appearance.
Before beginning dental implant treatment, our dentists will determine if you have enough healthy jaw tissue to support the implant post. If you lack the proper support, we may perform a bone grafting procedure. This is particularly true for those who wait years to replace their missing teeth. Bone grafts fortify the jaw bone to make them a strong anchor for dental implants.
How Implants Provide Restoration
Our doctors at Creative Smile Dental can place your dental implants with precision right in our office. After the posts are surgically implanted, we allow time for the treatment site to heal and for the titanium posts to fuse. Bone growth surrounds the post because of the body’s biocompatibility to titanium. Next, an abutment is used to secure the prosthetic.
A Comprehensive Replacement Option
Implant-supported restorations are the only prosthetic devices that replace the entire tooth, from root to crown. Because the implant provides stability to the restoration, there is no worry about messy adhesive, loose-fitting dentures, or dietary limitations.
Drs. Nguyen and De Mata can provide implants for the loss of a single tooth, several teeth, or a full arch.
