Healthy teeth that work as nature intended are crucial for a high quality of life and overall health. Anyone who copes with dentures knows what we mean. There is a better solution now: dental implants from Allen Park Dentistry.
Dental implants are a very versatile technology that can be used to support a full set of dentures. Mini implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow dentures to be securely attached so that they won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts are implanted into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, building a durable base for an over denture.
Here is the process:
1. Examination and Assessment
During your first visit, we will take x-rays and assess your mouth and the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. We will analyze options with you and together you will develop a treatment plan.
2. Implant Placement
A complete tooth implant and restoration consists of the actual implant or root replacement, an abutment, and final restoration. The first step is to insert the titanium alloy implant into your jawbone. This is not as difficult or painful as it sounds. Most patients are surprised at how quick and easy the procedure is.
Implant surgery would not be successful if your jawbone did not welcome an artificial and non-biological tooth root. Amazingly, in the vast majority of cases, the jawbone tightly fuses with the implant to create an extremely heavy-duty foundation for the concluding restoration. It takes from three to six months for your jawbone to work its amazing magic.
4. Final Restoration
Whether your concluding step is a crown, bridge, or denture, we will work with the lab to manufacture a beautiful and functional restoration. A connecting piece called an abutment attaches the restoration to the artificial root(s). The crown, bridge, or denture is all that is visible at the end of the process. Dental implant restorations are virtually indistinguishable from previous teeth.
Dental implant patients of all ages are extremely happy with the improved quality of life implants provide.
