Restore Your Smile
Dental implants are the gold standard of restorative dentistry, and the most effective way of replacing gaps in your smile. Because the implant process consists of three separate steps to ensure that placement in the jaw is secure, it provides the most tooth stability, resulting in an effective and successful smile restoration. Dental implants are a permanent, durable, natural-looking tooth replacement that increases oral function and improves overall health.
The Advantages of Dental Implants
Once you’ve made the decision to invest in dental implants to replace your missing teeth, there’s an uptick in your confidence. With a fully restored smile, patients experience a life-changing transformation with the ability to lead a healthier life. Here’s a look at the benefits of this optimal choice in tooth replacement:
- High success rate
- Stunning smile, as a result.
The Three Steps of the Dental Implant Process
Your smile is one restoration away from being as beautiful and natural-looking as ever. Once the procedure has been completed, you’ll be left with a fully functioning and beautiful smile.
Dental implants consists of the following three steps:
- Surgical insertion of the titanium post
- The recovery period – also known as osseointegration
- Mounting of the abutment and crown
Osseointegration is the most vital step of a successful dental implant process. The implant and the bone must fuse together during this healing time. Dr. Martin is then able to finalize the procedure for maximum stability.
Are You a Candidate?
Although dental implants are the top solution for missing teeth, not everyone can qualify for this procedure. Ideally, a quality candidate must have a healthy mouth, free of infection. Some of the factors that can play a role in a person’s candidacy include:
- Gum disease
- Tobacco use
- Substance abuse
- Lack of sufficient bone mass
If you aren’t able to qualify from the onset, we provide supplementary treatments that will create a healthy environment for dental implant placement. Bone grafting and gum disease treatment are two methods we use to help a patient become a qualified candidate.
