Damaged or missing teeth can pose several problems, including unfavorable appearance and improper functionality. There are a variety of options available to resolve these issues, and the right option is largely dependent upon your needs as a patient. With that being said, there is one solution that seems to prevail, providing full functionality and allowing you to eat, speak and smile as normal – that solution is dental implants.
While implants are our preferred method of choice, we understand that some patients might be more set on other solutions. We’d like to take this opportunity to go through these options –
Dental implants are a convincing solution for damaged or missing teeth and they really allow you to remember what life was like before tooth loss.
Dental implants consist of a titanium unit and a restoration that covers this. To begin, Dr. Letellier will place the unit in your gum tissue, with a temporary covering on top of it. After this surgery, you will take a break from treatment for about 4-6 months while you heal. During this time, the implant will naturally fuse with the bone that is located beneath your gum tissue. It is extremely important to maintain excellent oral hygiene during this time, as infection is the leading cause of failure of dental implants.
As you are healing, we at The Center for Oral Surgery will be carefully fabricating a restoration that will match the color, shape and size of surrounding teeth, making it indistinguishable from your real teeth. After the area of your implant has healed, the temporary covering will be removed and the final restoration will be inserted over the implant.
Some of the benefits of dental implants are as follows –
