Our dental team works hand in hand in restoring smiles, one patient at a time. One of our methods to replace missing teeth is through implant surgery. Dental implants are screws made of titanium that act as durable artificial roots of the restorations. Implants are covered with dental crowns, usually made of porcelain, to achieve natural-looking teeth.
We use implants to replace single or multiple missing teeth as an alternative to dentures. In addition, patients who wear dentures can have them ‘snap and lock’ onto dental implants to significantly improve dentures’ stability and retention.
In this procedure, we place the implant into the jaw bone through surgery with utmost precision. We use the latest technology of a 3D Cone Beam CT Scanner to evaluate if the patient qualifies for the procedure, and then to accurately place the implant.
In order for a patient to qualify to the implant surgery, they need to have adequate bone density. If the patient’s bone density is insufficient, there are options to pursue.
We explore other treatment options such as bone grafting or sinus lift surgery so the patient gets the chance to have an implant. We allow healing to take place until the patient is ready to receive the implant. Once the graft materials are integrated into the patient’s natural bone after three months, we proceed with the implant surgery.
