Caring Dental Implant Placement and Restoration from West Suburban Dental Care
Dental implants can be a comprehensive solution for replacing missing teeth. West Suburban Dental Care offers this life-changing dental service, so you can live the way you want, laughing, talking, eating and smiling with confidence.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most permanent and complete way to replace teeth, and the only tooth replacement option that provides a substitute for the tooth root. The dental implant posts stimulate the jaw bone and help to maintain the bone’s strength and integrity. As a permanent anchor, the implant preserves the bone and helps prevent the shifting of neighboring teeth and premature facial aging.
The Placement Process
Before one of our experienced doctors can place your dental implant, we must ensure your jawbone mass is adequate. It’s important that your bone is healthy so that the implant can integrate properly. Your alveolar bone is made of a softer and more malleable material than the other bones in your body and will fuse with the dental implant in a process called osseointegration. Stabilizing the bone with an implant provides support for your entire oral structure.
Once our team determines that you are a good candidate for an implant, we will schedule your placement. This procedure takes place under general anesthesia to maximize comfort. We place the small titanium post into your jaw and seal the surrounding area. Once the area has healed, your final customized restoration is attached, completing your treatment. Implants are easy to care for, just brush and floss as you would your other teeth, and schedule regular dental check-ups.
Dental Implants Offer Various Solutions
The implant posts can be used with several restorations, including:
- Single-unit implants replace a missing tooth at any point in the smile without affecting adjacent teeth. Single implants can be done directly after extraction or after a period of healing. Once in place, an implant is indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
- Multi-unit implants can restore an entire quadrant of missing teeth using up to three implants. Implants support the prosthetic while preserving existing dental structures.
- Implant-supported dentures use anywhere from four to eight implants to replace up to an entire arch. Each post is positioned to provide maximum support and comfort, ensuring the longevity of your new smile.
