Dental implants are the ideal solution for those who have lost a tooth due to an accident or from periodontal disease. They are the treatment of choice for most patients looking to replace a missing tooth.
Dental implants use tiny titanium posts (called abutments) which are inserted in the jawbone where a tooth is missing. The abutment provides a stable anchor for the artificial replacement teeth. The abutment is attached to the dental implant which protrudes through the gum. The bone then bonds with the titanium dental implant creating a strong foundation for the artificial teeth (crown). The abutment is invisible once the replacement tooth is in place.
A dental implant is much easier to clean than a bridge. And while teeth that support a bridge are prone to cavities (and may fail in just a few years) an implant cannot be affected by cavities.
The implant serves as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth and your new tooth looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
In the past, dental implants required several different dentists or specialists and took many months to complete. This approach is still common, but not at Gentle Dental Care.
At Gentle Dental Care this procedure is performed by an oral surgeon under IV sedation (to minimize any pain or discomfort).
All our specialists are at one location. With our on-site 3D CAT scanner (for treatment planning) an on-site lab (to manufacture and fit your new teeth) and the latest in Immediate Function clinical techniques and protocols, the procedure can all be completed in our surgery in one day!
