Dental Implants

Nuance Dental Studio Dental Implants
Dental implants are an appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are beneficial than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to place the implant itself, where a titanium screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns or applicances installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to uncover the implants called the second stage surgery. Afterwards, the impression is taken to send to a laboratory to be fabricate an abutment and crown. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth.  Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to insert the restoration.  Your smile will look just like it used to.
