Permanently Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that feel, look and function like original teeth. The patient who has lost teeth gains the ability to eat practically anything and can laugh or smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that face contours will be preserved. The implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jaw bone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a solid foundation for artificial teeth. Additionally, dental implants are able to preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that happens when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are actually rediscovering the confidence and comfort to eat, talk, laugh and enjoy daily life.

Don’t let fear of the dentist stop you from getting the dental

care you deserve!

Evaluation for Dental Implants

If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the right option for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination as well as health history. During these session visits, your specific needs and considerations will be resolved by Dr. Thurm and by a Maxillofacial and oral Surgeon referred by our practice. Your queries and issues matter to us and our team will very closely work with you to help make your procedure a success..

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are metal anchors, that serve as tooth root substitutes. They’re surgically positioned into the jaw bone. Small posts are then attached to the implant that protrude through the gums. These posts offer stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

For the majority of patients, the placement of dental implants involves 2 surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jaw bone. For the first 3 to 6 weeks following surgical treatment, the implants are beneath the surface area of the gums, slowly bonding with the jaw bone. You ought to be in a position to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist designs the final bridgework or denture that will inevitably improve both aesthetics and function.

Once the implant has bonded to the jaw bone, the 2nd phase begins. The implants will be uncovered and a little healing collar will be attached by the surgeon. Dr. Thurm may then start making your new teeth. An impression needs to be taken. Then attachments or posts may be connected to the implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the attachments or posts. The whole process generally requires 6 to 8 months. Many patients don’t encounter any discomfort in their daily life.
