Procedure information and technique

It has always been the aim of all prosthetic dental treatment to restore natural conditions in the mouth as faithfully as possible when teeth have decayed or been lost. The smaller the number of teeth remaining, the more difficult it is to achieve this aim.

With dental implants, we can provide you with ideal function and esthetics. You will again smile with confidence. No other dental procedure can give you a more natural look or anchor crowns more securely.

Dental implants act as artificial roots. They are surgically placed into your jaw, and are the closest substitute to natural teeth in form and function. Once a dental implant is firmly integrated into your jaw, it can be used to support single crowns, bridges and dentures. Whether you are missing one tooth, several teeth or all of your teeth, dental implants may be an option for you.

  • The first step: it is the development of an individualized treatment plan. The plan addresses your specific needs and is prepared by our dentist.
  • The second step: the tooth root implant, which is a small post made of titanium, is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw. The healing process can take from 3 to 6 months.

Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post – called an abutment is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. To make your new tooth or teeth, the dentist makes impressions of your teeth, and creates a model of your bite (which captures all of your teeth, their type, and arrangement). Your new tooth or teeth are based on this model. A replacement tooth, called a crown, is further attached to the abutment.

Dental Implants are a Functional and Desirable Alternative to Conventional Bridges and Dentures

After Veneer Treatment

Caring for dental implants is the same as caring for natural teeth. Simply follow the oral hygiene basics, which include brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups. Our dentist or hygienist will show you how to keep your new teeth clean.

Please note: this should be used only as a guide to your treatment. All specifics will be disscussed with your dentist at the consultation.
