7 Day Dental is the best place to get your dental implants because of the knowledge and expertise of our staff. They will patiently provide detailed explanations of the procedures you will undergo. Implants are the modern alternative to dentures or fixed bridges. They look and function just like your natural teeth. Whether replacing one tooth or several, you should have a detailed conversation with your dentist to find out more about what to expect from the procedure and whether it’s right for you.
During implant surgery, our experienced dental expert inserts a specially designed post into the jawbone. This device is made of titanium metal and will act as the root of the tooth you’ve lost. Once you’ve healed from this procedure, an abutment is added. Then, an implant prosthesis also known as a crown, is placed over the abutment. The crown is individually produced in a lab to match the color and shape of your surrounding teeth.
Dental implant surgery is not a quick fix. It’s a lengthy procedure that produces long term benefits for your smile. You’ll first have to undergo a thorough dental exam. This will include X-rays and molds of your teeth. There will be more than one surgical procedure, as summarized in the preceding paragraph. A periodontist or surgeon will work with you to create a treatment plan that will be take into consideration your jawbone’s physical condition and the number of teeth you need to replace. The entire dental implant process can take three to eight months. Most of the time is dedicated to healing and letting new bone develop in your jaw. During the surgeries, you will be placed under either local or general anesthesia. After each implant procedure, you’ll receive appropriate care instructions. Once complete, the ongoing care of implants is essentially the same as that of your regular teeth: brushing, flossing, and visiting the dental office on a regular schedule.
Implants have many benefits for your health, comfort and appearance, when compared to dentures. Implants integrate into the structure of your own bone and prevent bone loss and gum recession. They function like natural teeth so that you can eat all foods. You won't have to deal with misplaced dentures, messy plates, or adhesives. Moreover, dental implants look as good as your natural teeth, and often better!
Implant anchored dentures for multiple tooth replacement.
There is a special treatment recommended when a full set or large number of contiguous teeth must be replaced. We usually recommend implant anchored dentures, either permanent or removable. This eliminates the need for a separate implant surgery for each tooth, which would be costly and take a long time to complete. Depending on the situation, 2-4 titanium posts are implanted in the jaw. A permanent denture can be attached. Alternately, a special part is added to allow the dentures to be snapped into place and removed for cleaning. Your dental specialist will help you review the options and choose the best treatment plan.
