Dental implants are titanium posts an oral surgeon and periodontist at Brite Dental Spa surgically implants into your jawbone to serve as replacement tooth roots. Dental implants successfully restore your smile so you can speak, chew, and laugh with confidence and ease.
Adults who are missing some or all of their permanent teeth are candidates for dental implants. The periodontist reviews the health of your gums and the integrity of the bone in your jaw prior to recommending implants. They may take a 3D image of your mouth as part of the exam.
If you have gum disease or low bone density, you may require a bone graft, sinus lift, or periodontal treatment before undergoing the implant procedure.
Good candidates for dental implants should also be in good health and able to withstand minor surgery. Make sure to inform Brite Dental Spa if you have a chronic health problem, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Even if you have these conditions, you can still get implants, but need extra monitoring because you’re at increased risk of complications.
Dental implants are a superior tooth replacement restoration. They offer a number of benefits, including:
Dental implants also offer you enhanced oral health. Dental implants restore your smile, make hygiene easier, and maintain your natural mouth structure.
At Brite Dental Spa, your entire dental implant procedure requires a few appointments and a period of about six months. While this may seem like a long, involved process, implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
At the first appointment, you consult with the periodontal oral surgeon to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure and to understand your expected results.
When you come in for the implant placement, they administer a local anesthetic to the treatment area to numb your tooth roots and gums.
Once the anesthesia sets in, the oral surgeon makes a series of tiny incisions in your gum tissue. They carefully place the implant (or implants) into your jawbone. You return home with full after-care instructions to allow the gums to heal for a few months.
As soon as your gums heal, you return to Brite Dental Spa, where a restorative dentist takes over, making impressions of your teeth with the revolutionary iTero digital scanner to create crowns that serve as the visible portion of your replacement teeth. Crowns are commonly porcelain and match your natural teeth exactly in shape, color, and form. Once the lab mills the crowns, your dentist carefully attaches them to your implant with an abutment. You leave the office with a bright new smile.
