Characteristics Of Dental Implants
Dental implants are made up of three components—a post, an abutment and a restoration, which mimics the natural tooth. Secured in your jawbone, dental implants are one of the most versatile tooth replacements available, able to replace any number of missing teeth. This permanent solution requires a skilled implant dentist and advanced surgical technology.
Your Custom Dental Implant Options
Dental implants can support a single dental crown or a dental bridge to replace one or more missing arch of teeth. Dental implants can also be used to increase the stability of a modified denture, which snaps into the implants placed in the jawbone. For patients missing many or all of their teeth, dental implants can permanently support a full, fixed bridge of artificial teeth.
Our Dental Implant Treatment Process
1. Step One: Initial Consultation
Your dental implant treatment at Alpha Dental Practice & Implant Center is personalized to your specific dental needs and smile goals. You’ll first complete a consultation with Dr. Assi, our implant dentist in Coral Springs, FL, where you’ll discuss your dental and medical history, receive digital X-rays, and have a custom treatment plan.
2.Step Two: Smile Transformation
Next, you’ll undergo surgery, which may involve tooth extractions and bone grafting along with your dental implant placement. We use fully guided techniques for all our surgeries to ensure an effective procedure with precise results. We administer sedation to ease anxiety and discomfort. These include nitrous oxide or oral sedation. Dental implant surgery generally takes one to two hours per implant. With TeethXpress®, we’re able to attach a temporary tooth or set of teeth during the same appointment. As your mouth heals, you’ll be able to eat comfortably and enjoy a smile transformation until you receive your permanent dental implant restoration.
3.Step Three: Final Restoration And New Beginnings
Your treatment site will need three or more months to fully heal after implant surgery. During this time, your dental implants will fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. It’s this bond that gives dental implants the stability and functionality they’re known for. Once healing is complete, you’ll return to Alpha Dental Practice & Implant Center for your permanent restoration. We’ll make sure your bite is properly aligned and you’ll leave our office with lifelike functionality and a confident new look that will last for years to come!
