A missing tooth means you're missing out on more than just smiling. It can have a negative impact on your confidence and your overall well being, too. Dental implants can help you eat, laugh, and talk with ease once again.
Why should I choose dental implants?
After losing a tooth or having one extracted, it’s important to consider all your replacement options. Dental implants can restore the functionality of your bite and improve your overall oral health. As one of the most secure and long-lasting tooth replacement options available, dental implants act as a natural part of your smile and replace that missing tooth you’ve been hiding.
Get Started On The Right Path!
During a commitment-free consultation, your doctor will examine your mouth, discuss your options with you, and answer any questions you may have so you can proceed with confidence, when you’re ready.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Implants function and feel just like natural teeth so you can brush, floss, and eat normally.
Your implant will be crafted to fit seamlessly with your smile and will look exactly like a real tooth.
Preserve Your Oral Health
Implants are made of biocompatible titanium which fuses to your jaw, thus preventing bone deterioration associated with tooth loss.
No Guess-Work, More Comfort
With cone-beam computed tomography, or CBCT technology, we give our patients peace of mind. This reliable technology ensures precise placement for increased patient comfort and better overall outcomes.
Bone Grafting & Sinus Lifts
Some patients require extra preparation before receiving dental implants. Dr. Fiza is experienced in a variety of oral surgeries and procedures, like bone grafting and sinus lifts, to ensure your implants function properly and stand the test of time.
The Implant Treatment Process
Once you’ve been approved for treatment, your doctor will schedule your oral surgery appointment and provide a surgical plan. During the surgery, your doctor will make an incision in your gum tissue to securely place a dental implant in the jaw. Next, the area will be cleaned and sutures will be placed to begin the healing process.
Healing & Osseointegration
Your gums and jawbone will begin to heal once your implant has been placed. After 1-2 weeks, the incision site will be healed, but it will take 3-6 months for the implant to permanently bond with your jaw bone through a process called osseointegration. To ensure you are healing properly, we will see you for a couple of check ups during the osseointegration process.
Applying the Restoration
The final step in the implant treatment process is the restoration. Your restoration, or prosthetic dental crown, will be custom crafted to match your smile and securely affixed to the titanium implant. Once your new tooth is in place, your smile will be complete!
