Once you learn about dental implants, you finally realize there is a way to improve your life. When you lose several teeth, whether it's a new situation or something you have lived with for years; chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself.
Now you can start over! With titanium tooth roots your dentist can offer replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants can be your doorway to renewed self-confidence and peace of mind.
Dental implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement. This concept for oral rehabilitation was developed more than thirty-five years ago by a Swedish scientist and orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark. With his pioneering research, Dr. Branemark opened the door to a lifetime of renewed comfort and self-confidence for millions of individuals facing the frustration and embarrassment of tooth loss.
Dental Implant Treatment Steps
- The first step is the placement of titanium implants to replace lost teeth. These implants will remain covered underneath the gum for approximately 3 to 6 months. During this time, the implants should fuse to the bone.
- The second step of the procedure involves uncovering the implants and attacking a post to each implant. This completes the foundation on which your teeth will be placed. In some instances, your surgeon may decide to place the posts at the time of surgery.
- The final step is the placement of your new teeth by your dentist. With techniques that ensure optimal size, shape, color and fit, your replacement teeth should blend with your remaining natural teeth.
