Dental implants are a popular and effective option for replacing missing teeth due to their stability and longevity.
This innovative dental restoration involves surgically placing a small and durable titanium post into your jawbone, which acts as a secure anchor for a customized dental crown. The result is a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth that can last for more than 25 years with proper care.
Unlike traditional bridges or dentures, dental implants also preserve the health and integrity of your surrounding teeth and jawbone.
Dental implants offer several advantages for people looking for a stable and durable tooth replacement option, such as:
By choosing dental implants, you can enjoy a beautiful and functional smile that lasts for several years without the hassle and inconvenience of more temporary options.
You must meet certain criteria before the procedure so the implant can integrate properly with your jawbone.
Once placed, an implant bonds with the surrounding bone. The bone tissue heals around the implant to stabilize and secure it in position, similar to a natural tooth root.
To ensure optimal support for the dental implant, the dental team may suggest a bone graft procedure before the implant surgery. A bone graft involves adding healthy bone tissue to your jaw.
The Mowry Dental team invests in the highest quality sterilization equipment and durable implants from Dentsply Sirona® to ensure your comfort and safety. After administering anesthesia, the team creates an incision to place the implant in your gums. The procedure takes about 1-2 hours per implant. Once they’re placed, the team sutures the incisions.
You can expect the healing process to take about 6-12 weeks. After your tissues fully heal, the team takes digital impressions. They use these images to create custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures. They connect your prosthetics at your final appointment to restore your smile and oral function.
With dental implants from Mowry Dental, you can enjoy a beautiful and functional smile that looks and feels just like your natural teeth. Call today or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
