Dental Implants from Total Family Dental Specialists
In an effort to provide patients with the best restorative dental care, Total Family Dental Specialists offers dental implants. Commonly considered the gold standard in replacing teeth, this treatment allows patients to regain the full function of their bite and avoid jawbone loss, without sacrificing the aesthetic of a natural smile.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants can be placed by our oral surgeons within our office, allowing our associates at Total Family Dental Specialists to treat you every step of the way. The implants themselves are small titanium posts, surgically placed into the jaw. As the bone heals, the posts fuse to the jaw, effectively the roots of natural teeth and reinforcing total jaw structure.
Once the implants have healed and fused to the jaw, our dental professionals place an abutment to cap the implant. Our office uses digital imaging technologies to take impressions of your teeth, allowing us to make crowns customized to your smile’s shading and fit your bite, before affixing it to the abutment.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
The dental implants from Total Family Dental Specialists possess several advantages over older types of reconstructions. The primary benefit of dental implants is the long term stability this innovate treatment provides to patients. Without the necessary stimulation provided by the roots of natural teeth, traditional prosthetics can lead to the reabsorption of the bone, and the eventual malformation of the jaw. This risk is eliminated by the way in which implants act as the roots of teeth, stimulating the jaw from the interior structure of the bone.
Dental implants also provide patients with unmatched aesthetic and functional benefits. The crowns used in dental restorations look the same as natural teeth, and are made of hardened porcelain to withstand the pressure of regular bite function. Cleaning dental implants is as easy as maintaining your regular oral hygiene, and need only be brushed and flossed.
Dental Implant Eligibility
Dental implants require patients to maintain healthy gums and sufficient bone structure in order for the titanium posts to effectively fuse to the jaw. If you are suffering from gum disease or don’t have the necessary bone density to support implants, our periodontics and oral maxillofacial specialists can work with you to help prepare your smile for implants.
