What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are restorations to replace missing or decayed teeth. They consist of an implant post, an abutment, and a prosthetic. Dental implants are the only restoration that replace a missing tooth from root to crown. They are increasingly popular because they are permanent, which means they will not slip or fall out. The titanium post also performs the essential functions of a tooth root and continues to stimulate your jaw, which prevents bone loss and preserves your facial structure. Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth with a crown or multiple missing teeth with bridges or dentures.

Implant-Supported Crowns: A single missing or decayed tooth creates multiple oral health problems. An implant-supported crown protects your health and preserves your bite pattern by recreating the surface area of your missing tooth. This keeps the neighboring teeth from shifting into the gap, which leads to uneven wear and a compromised bite. We can replace any tooth with a dental implant, from molars to incisors, and we carefully match the color to your natural teeth for a uniform smile.

Implant-Supported Bridges: If you have multiple missing teeth in a row, you are vulnerable to infections, gum disease, and bone loss. Our implant-supported bridges can protect your oral and overall health. These dental restorations consist of an implant post supporting a crown at the beginning and end of the bridge with artificial teeth called pontics suspended between them. Bridges renew the integrity of your bite and keep your bite structure intact. Our friendly team artfully matches the size, shape, and color of your bridge to your remaining teeth to create a seamlessly blended smile.

Implant-Supported Dentures: When you're missing most or all of your teeth, it directly impacts your oral and overall health on a daily basis. Our implant-supported dentures can restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile with ease. Implant-supported dentures consist of strategically placed dental implant posts that anchor your dentures for a natural look and comfortable fit. We offer an array of denture options, including partial and full dentures. The implant posts securely attach your dental restoration, eliminating the need for messy pastes or adhesives. We believe you deserve options when choosing your custom dentures, which is why we offer conventional implant-supported dentures and hybrid options like snap-on dentures.

Our Gentle Dental Implant Process

Restoring your smile is a personal process and you want a dental team who supports you throughout your journey. Our compassionate team led by Saeda Basta, DDS, MS, consistently puts you first, and we are proud to renew your smile.

We begin with a thorough, gentle exam of your teeth, gums, and jaws to create a treatment plan that boosts your oral health and rejuvenates your smile. Our team will use modern technology like CT scans and an intraoral scanner to provide precise information for placing your dental implant. We will outline your custom treatment plan, including any necessary pretreatments, and provide 3D images of what your new smile will look like.

Our team uses computer-guided surgery to place your implant post, which provides a stable and permanent base for your restoration. We use CT scans alongside the intraoral scans to identify the ideal place for your implant post. Precise placement of the titanium post promotes longevity and stability for your restoration. Once the post has fused with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration and you have healed, then you will return to our office and we will fit your custom crown, bridge, or dentures to complete your smile.
