Implant Placement and Restoration Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a revolutionary option for replacing missing teeth. They’re artificial tooth roots made from biocompatible substances like ceramic or titanium that a specialist surgically implants in your jawbone.

The biocompatibility of implants means that once they’re placed in your jawbone, they begin to fuse with your bone tissue.

As you heal, your implant becomes a strong and sturdy part of your jaw, which makes it an excellent foundation to place a restoration (like a crown, bridge, or dentures) and fully replace your missing tooth or teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Implants replace missing teeth, which improves the appearance of your smile and enhances your oral health.

Replacing your missing teeth helps you speak and chew more easily, and it also keeps the rest of your teeth in alignment, which helps prevent excessive wear and tear on your teeth and jaw problems like TMJ disorders.

Implants also have particular advantages compared to other tooth-replacement options, like traditional bridges and dentures. Your implants are actually connected to your jawbone unlike bridges or dentures, which rest on top of your gums.

Because of this, they provide your bone tissue with healthy stimulation, which helps to prevent bone loss in your jaw that would lead to a weakened jaw and give your face a sunken-in appearance.

What happens during implant placement and restoration?

Replacing your teeth with dental implants is a multi-step procedure that can be done entirely at the offices of Daren W. Evans DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.

The practice has a specialist that comes in to the clinic to perform your implant placements, which involves making a small incision in your gums, drilling a hole in your jawbone, and placing the implant.

The specialist stitches up your implant site and sends you home to heal for a few months, during which time your implant fuses with your jawbone.

Once your implants have been successfully placed, your dentist can fit you with a restoration, like a crown, bridge, or implant-supported dentures. They can restore your implant regardless of whether you had it placed by his specialist or had the procedure done by a referring doctor.

They take an impression of your smile, then send it off to the best local lab that will craft your restoration with an exacting eye for detail.

When the lab has finished fabricating your tooth, you come back to have it permanently bonded to your implant. The result is a stunning tooth replacement made in a timely and precise manner.
