If you've lost a tooth due to injury or disease, you may be looking for a way to rejuvenate your smile and improve your oral health. Dental implants may be the solution you need. At Designer Dental Services, we have the expertise and technology to transform your smile and improve your daily life with dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
An implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post surgically placed into the jawbone. The "root" is usually made of titanium, a metal well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Implants?
Those suffering from tooth loss due to gum disease, injury, or decay should consider dental implants for their tooth replacements. The ideal implant candidate is a non-smoker with good oral health, including sufficient bone in the jaw and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease. Implants are supported by surrounding teeth, therefore, causing fewer issues and alterations to your natural teeth. Implants will lead to greater comfort and easier access to surrounding teeth to help improve oral hygiene. These dental solutions also take away the hassle of dealing with adhesives associated with dentures and will give you a fully functional mouth.
Single or Multiple Implants
Implants are versatile. If you only miss one tooth, one implant plus one replacement tooth will do the trick. If you are missing several teeth in a row, a few strategically placed implants can support a permanent bridge (a set of replacement teeth). Similarly, if you have lost all of your teeth, a full bridge or denture can be permanently fixed in your mouth with a strategic number of implants.
Consider your replacement teeth to be the same as natural teeth. They require the same daily brushing and flossing and the same amount of regular checkups. Like your natural teeth, the better you care for your replacements, the longer they will last.
Our Implant Services
At Designer Dental Services, we offer various implant services to ensure that each patient receives the best possible care. Our services include:
Sinus Lift Augmentation: This is a surgical procedure that restores the sinus cavity to its original size and replaces the bone that has been lost as a result of the enlarged sinus. This new bone graft typically takes nine to 12 months to heal before the dental implants can be placed into the grafted bone.
Autogenous Bone Grafting: In these cases, it is often necessary to "borrow" bone from another area of your mouth and graft it into the deficient area. Often, the area of choice is from the chin or the back of the jaw, where your wisdom teeth used to be.
Implant Site Development: Various types of bone grafting can be done when the tooth is removed to facilitate the placement of a dental implant later.
Computer-Enhanced Treatment Planning: We have special software on our computer that allows us to evaluate your dental CT scan in three dimensions for bone quality, quantity, and location, enabling the best possible placement of your dental implants. This also allows us to work closely and smoothly with your restorative dentist to ensure an ideal result where your dental implants are concerned.
Implant Maintenance: Once your dental implant restoration is completed, keeping the area clean and infection-free is important. Dental implants can accumulate plaque and tartar just as teeth can. Whether you have just one tooth replaced by an implant or several, a professional cleaning schedule will be necessary to keep your implants healthy. Your individual needs will determine the time interval for these professional cleanings.
