What are dental implants?
Titanium metal roots (or screws) are implanted into the jawbone to hold the artificial teeth in place. Many of our patients who have this procedure instantly realize how much more secure and worry-free this permanent solution is for them over their previous removable full or partial dentures.
Why get Dental Implants?
Dental implants are safe, comfortable, and durable, and can replace more conventional dental treatments such as traditional crown and bridge work. Dental implants may be the best option if you are looking for a permanent, long-term, and lifetime treatment option for missing teeth.
By replacing missing teeth with teeth on dental implants, you enjoy many benefits, such as easier, more comfortable eating, improved speech, better appearance, and ultimately improved self-confidence.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Adult patients who are in good general health are usually candidates for dental implants. In some cases, those who have deteriorated jawbones are able to have bone augmentation which makes it possible for them to get implants as well.
The only way to determine if you are candidate for treatment is to a book an initial consultation with your Smile Corp specialists.
How are Dental Implants Placed?
Your natural teeth remain intact and do not need to be ground-down for this procedure.
We then make an artificial tooth or teeth which attach to the implant post or ball. If multiple teeth next to each other need to be replaced, we may also suggest a bridge which is securely anchored to implants.
What are Implants Made of?
One of the best types of dental implants available in the market today is made from Trabecular Metal, which is the next level of implant technology.
Depending on your requirements, Smile Corp may use the trabecular metal dental implant, or another titanium implant that will provide the best fit for you.
