Dental implants are made of surgical grade titanium posts that are placed in your jawbone to hold realistic-looking restorations after you lose one or more of your natural teeth. At Supreme Dental, Dr. Mason conducts consultations for dental implants and places the implants with a series of surgeries and healing periods.
Titanium, the type of metal used in dental implants, is the best material for the job because of its biocompatibility. Titanium is also used in artificial joints like knee and hip replacements. The properties of Titanium allow the human bone to integrate into the metal's surface, in a process called osseointegration. Thanks to osseointegration, your implants act as incredibly stable roots for your restorations, and you can use your restorations just as you would your normal teeth.
Like many modern medical and dental technologies, dental implants have come a long way in terms of design and technology, making them a reliable and effective option for tooth replacement. Supreme Dental of Las Vegas utilizes these advancements, and the use of 3D Cone-beam scan technology and surgical planning software has allowed for more precise placement of implants, reducing the risk of complications and improving the overall success rate. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can provide patients with a long-lasting solution to tooth loss, allowing them to enjoy a natural-looking and fully functional smile.
During your initial consultation, a 3-D cone beam x-ray is taken to determine the position and quality of the bone in preparation for the implant. Along with the information from the scan, a sophisticated surgical planning software is used to prepare for a safe surgery with optimal results.
The first of two surgeries involves making an incision in your gums over the area where the implant is intended to be placed. Removal of any remaining part of the original tooth or its root, as needed. As long as there is minimal to no bone loss in the area, the implant can be placed safely and securely before closing the incision to allow it to heal.
Two months later, another incision is made to uncover the implant, and an attachment component called a healing abutment is connected to the implant. The gum tissue will then heal around the abutment, which will serve as a foundation for the tooth restoration.
One week after the healing abutment is connected to the implant, it is removed, and an impression of the implant site is taken. It will take about two and a half weeks for the dental implant crown to be delivered from the lab and attached to the abutment, completing the process.
Many people prefer dental implants over traditional dental bridges for several reasons. Traditional bridges rely on nearby healthy teeth for support, while dental implants support restorations on their own. Dental implants have several specific advantages over bridges, including:
However, it's important to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of both treatments during your initial consultation, as each case is different. In some cases, patients may not have enough bone density or volume to support dental implants. In such cases, a dental bridge may be a better option. Additionally, some patients may prefer a bridge if they are not comfortable with the idea of oral surgery required for dental implant placement. It's important to discuss your individual situation and preferences with your dentist to determine the best treatment plan for you. We will answer all of your questions about each of your options for treatment.
Dental implants can restore your speaking and chewing abilities to how they were before you lost one or more teeth. To find out if dental implants are the right option for you, call Supreme Dental or book an appointment online today.
