What makes dental implants an ideal treatment?
- Implants are permanent, lasting as long as 25 years in most patients
- Implants prevent adjacent teeth from requiring treatments, such as being used to support a fixed bridge
- An implant root is made from titanium, which the body finds extremely biocompatible and will often form new bone around
- The strength of implants allows them to support larger restorations than a natural tooth
The Treatment Process
We implement Tomogram technology in our practice, allowing us to have an extremely high implant success rate. This technology equips us with the imaging we need to identify exactly where implants should be placed during the surgical phase of treatment. It also reduces the amount of healing time that is needed following the placement of the implant. In 3-6 months, new bone formation will have developed around the implant, and it will be ready for the permanent restoration to be placed on top of it.
There are certain requirements that must be met to be a candidate for dental implant therapy. A disease-free mouth and quality bone levels are some examples. We invite you to schedule a consultation with us to find out if dental implants are an option for your smile.
