Dental implants replace your tooth roots with titanium posts to serve as anchors to artificial teeth.
When visiting Intelligent Dental Group for a solution to your missing tooth or teeth, the team has over 20 years of surgical experience and expertise, so you can feel confident about the successful outcome of your dental implant procedure.
Dental implant restorations are made of modern porcelain to give you a naturally functioning and looking tooth. If you have several missing teeth, you can have dentures attached to your implants, or to replace an entire upper or lower arch of your teeth, All-on-4® implants are an option.
You can rely on the team to provide the latest technology, like digital X-rays and iTero® 3D scanning to perform your dental implant with the highest level of precision.
To place your dental implant, your periodontist first numbs the area to make sure you don’t feel anything. Then they surgically insert a titanium post under your gums, into your jawbone. A temporary or permanent crown is placed at this time, and the healing begins.
The implant takes about 3-6 months to fuse together with your jawbone. When you’re completely healed, your periodontist provides the right restoration for you, which includes crowns or bridges. Your restoration is customized perfectly to match the color of your natural teeth and fit in with the rest of them to give you a beautiful, confident smile.
Your custom-made restoration attaches to your implants with a very small screw or dental cement.
Dental implants are for most anyone who has healthy gums and a strong enough jawbone to hold the implant. In some cases, you may need to have a bone grafting procedure to provide enough strength in your jawbone to give the implant the support it needs.
During your evaluation, the team provides a comprehensive exam to assess the condition of your oral health and determine the best next steps for you.
Dental implants are a popular choice for restoration because of their many benefits that include:
One of the greatest advantages to dental implants is the confidence they bring to your smile. You don’t have to worry about becoming loose, removing them, or dealing with messy adhesives to hold them in.
