Dental Implants
 

Dental implants are considered as the best option to replace missing teeth ot a fixed solution to removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a Periodontist - a specialist of the gums and supporting bone. Following placement of the implant(s) by the specialist, Dr. Mubarak or Dr. Uddin will fit the implant(s) with a crown, bridge or denture depending on the patient’s needs. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are very stable, strong and long lasting, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

Reasons for dental implants:

  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.

What does getting dental implants involve?

During you first appointment, X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb (may require local anesthesia), the implant will be surgically placed into the bone. Your dentist will allow them to heal and integrate itself onto the bone which may take anything b/w 1 to 6 months. Though post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time, but sometimes (depending on the type of implant) a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place.

Once implants integrates with the bone, artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.

At Healthy Smiles Dental, you will receive care instructions during your every visit and when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
