3 Things You Need to Know about Dental Implants
Dental implants are a incredible replacement for people who do not a have a smile! Adults and seniors who are missing all their teeth or even just a few teeth can have them replaced with dental implants a lifelike prosthesis made in our onsite laboratory.
Through a carefully sterile and organized procedure, the titanium dental implants are placed into the jaw bone, and a restoration is affixed to the top of the implant. Typically our premium dentures are used with implants and ‘snap’ into the implants. The acrylic is much stronger, lasts longer, and is less likely to break when supported by the implants!
Implants Fuse to your Jaw
The implants we use are made out of titanium, a metal that is very similar to the metal used in joint replacement surgery. It has a unique ability to integrate into your jaw and stops the loss of bone for both the upper and lower jaw.
After placement of the screws, we typically cover the implants and allow the bone and gums to heal for 3-4 months depending on the difficulty of the surgery. Dental implants are resilient and retain strength. They also have a high success rate of long-term functionality and very few individuals face issues with their implants when they are placed properly and given time to hear and fuse into your jaw.
You can have a Upper Denture with no Palate!
Dental implants offer many benefits, and one of them is the ability to have a denture which does not cover your upper palate. Many individuals with dentures face using adhesives or suction to keep their dentures in place, but with dental implants we provide a solid and permanent foundation for them. Additionally, patients may enjoy a full sense of taste and can smile knowing their restorations are strong and natural looking.
