Of Dental Implants
If you are missing teeth and are looking for a solution that looks and feels natural, dental implants have a number of benefits including:
- Durability and longevity: With proper care, implants can last for the rest of your life.
- Support jaw health: Implants keep jawbone from deteriorating after tooth loss.
- Beautiful and natural-looking: You won’t need to worry about uncomfortable shifting while you speak and chew, and you’ll never need to remove an implant to eat or sleep.
Preparing for Implants
Options After Your Consultation
If we find that your gum and jawbone are not adequate or strong enough to support a dental implant during your consultation, we can still help! Treatments to strengthen your bone and gums can help prepare your mouth to receive dental implant surgery. Bone grafts and sinus lifts are often performed on patients who are not currently candidates for implants. Once your gums and jaw heal after these treatments, you will be able to undergo implant surgery from start to finish and leave our office with a brand new, fresh smile.
The Placement Process
An Artificial Tooth Root
Once Dr. Graves approves you for implant surgery, the placement process will begin. Dr. Graves will make a small incision in your gumline and insert a small, titanium rod in the opening. While your gums and jaw heal, they will go through a process called “osseointegration”. This process bonds the implant to your jawbone, enabling it to act as an artificial tooth root.
