Dental Implants :
Dr. Johnson is the only dentist in Ohio performing ceramic implants
Dental Implants are an artificial replacement, used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. By replacing missing tooth roots, implants offer more than an enhancement, providing patients with the strength and durability required to eat all the foods they love, without struggling to chew. To determine if Implants are right for you, a consultation with Dr Johnson is needed. Dr Johnson will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. Digital x-rays are needed to ensure that sufficient bone structure exists for placing the Implant(s) and to determine exact location where the Implant should be placed. For the patient who is concerned about metals, we are able to offer Ceramic Implants (Z-Systems). At this time, Dr John Johnson is one of the few Dentists in the state of Ohio performing the Ceramic Implants. Please call and schedule an appointment to discuss these options.
Dental implant treatment is bringing back joy and quality of life to millions of dental patients around the world.
Dental Implants for Tooth Replacement :
Your teeth were designed to last a lifetime, but sometimes they don’t! Replacing missing teeth is important to your general health and to the health of your other teeth. Not only do you lose chewing ability when a tooth is lost, but a missing tooth or teeth can contribute to neighboring teeth tipping, crowding, or extruding; ruining a good bite, ultimately ending in other teeth being lost, or damaged.
Also, there are the obvious problems of poor appearance and loss of self-esteem caused by one or more missing teeth. Dental implants should always be discussed as an option to replace a failing or missing tooth. Replacement of lost teeth with dental implants has been used for treating missing teeth for more than 50 years and is recognized as an effective treatment choice. As the success rate of dental implants has climbed to nearly 100% many in the dental profession consider implants more predictable than bridgework, resin bonded bridges and endodontic treatment.
What are dental implants?
Dental Implants are made of ceramic or titanium. Ceramic Implants are made from Zirconium. Ceramic Dental implants are substitutes for the roots of missing teeth. Ceramic Dental Implants support Crowns and Fixed bridge work. They can act as an anchors for a complete set of replacement teeth: Supporting and stabilizing a Complete Denture; or supporting a set or fixed Crown and Bridge prosthetic teeth. Removable Partial Dentures can also supported and anchored to Ceramic implants. Dental implants can even replace Teeth that have been lost to gum disease (see gum disease section).
