A dental implant is a titanium screw similar to that used by orthopedic surgeons. The fixture is allowed stay under the gum for approximately 4 to 6 months which facilitates bone to implant bonding. The process of bone covering the implant surface, called “osseointegration”, makes the screw solid enough for us to use it as tooth. The key element of osseointegration is the fact that the fixture must not move within the bone in order to allow for bone to implant bonding. Once healing process is complete, a permanent porcelain crown can be fitted.
Studies show that over 40 million Americans have lost some or all their teeth. Patients with missing teeth often complain about their poor quality removable denture. If you are missing one, multiple, or all your teeth, you can permanently improve your appearance, comfort and quality of life with the help of dental implants.
In most cases, a failing tooth can be replaced with an immediate implant. The tooth will be eased out of the bone and an implant placed in the same spot without the need for any incisions in the gums as with the normal implant procedure.
In complete denture wearers, we can stabilize and attach your dentures using implants with clips. This is a particularly good solution for those who are unhappy with their loose denture.
