Why would anyone consider Dental Implants?
Dental Implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With implants, you can rediscover the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best treatment for loose dentures. Permanent dental implants are designed to make dentures much more secure and enable you to smile, eat and talk confidently. We can assist you if you have been thinking about investing in implants. The implants act as a foundation for replacement teeth. They won’t decay and are designed to last for the rest of your life. Implants can be used in conjunction with various dental procedures to improve our oral health. Once they are installed, you’re much less likely to face problems with slippage and discomfort.
What is the process for getting Dental Implants?
Once we have met for a consultation and conducted an X-ray or CT scan, we will establish where the teeth are to be placed before we surgically place the implants in your mouth. This part of the process won’t normally take more than a couple of hours and can sometimes be done in sixty minutes. The implants will need to heal and fully integrate with your bone and tissue before we can connect the permanent bridges or dentures. It will usually take between 3-6 months for the adjustment to be complete.
Who is a good candidate for Dental Implants?
Those likely to benefit from dental implants include people who have been experiencing problems with conventional dentures or simply people who have lost as much as a single tooth. They make life easier for those that have been finding it difficult to chew and enjoy meals and can slow down the process of tissue and bone loss in the jaw. What’s more is that implants can even provide a more youthful appearance due to the way that they will give your facial structure a lift. Furthermore, they will help you to speak more clearly.
Why would I want a 3D CAT Scan?
In short, a 3D scan provides a more clear view of bone structure, bone density, tissues, and nerves.
Dental implants are the most sophisticated replacement for missing teeth, but have historically proven to be time-consuming to place. Our 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology which provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. The results from 3D imaging enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits.
