What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth that match your natural teeth. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth, ensuring stability and a natural appearance.

Implants consist of three main components:

  • Implant post: A titanium screw that acts as the root of the artificial tooth.
  • Abutment: A connector that is placed on top of the implant post to hold the new tooth or teeth.
  • Restoration: The prosthetic that is attached to the abutment. This is designed to look like your natural teeth.

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer numerous advantages over other tooth replacement options. Here are some of the key benefits:

  • Improved appearance: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. They are designed to fuse with bone, making them a permanent part of your smile.
  • Enhanced comfort: Because implants become a part of you, they eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Durability: Implants are incredibly durable and, with proper care, can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective solution in the long run.
  • Improved oral health: Unlike traditional bridges, dental implants do not require altering adjacent teeth, preserving more of your natural teeth.
  • Ease of eating: Implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved self-esteem: Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Convenience: Implants eliminate the inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

The Implant Process

Understanding the dental implant process can help alleviate any anxiety and prepare you for what to expect. The process typically involves several stages, each crucial to the success of the treatment:

  1. Consultation: Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation. During this visit, our dental care providers will assess your oral health, take necessary x-rays, and discuss your treatment options to determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.
  2. Surgery: If you are a candidate for dental implants, the next step involves surgically placing the implant post into your jawbone. This procedure is performed by a specialist under local anesthesia. The titanium post is inserted into the bone, which will eventually fuse with it in a process called osseointegration.
  3. Healing: After the surgery, a healing period of several months is required for the implant to integrate with the jawbone. During this time, temporary restorations may be provided to maintain aesthetics and function.
  4. Restoration: Once the implant has fully integrated with the bone, we will proceed with the restoration phase. This involves placing an abutment on the implant post and fitting your custom-made crown, bridge, or denture. This final restoration is designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing both functionality and a pleasing appearance.

We Restore Dental Implants

At Bagnall Family Dentistry, we specialize in restoring dental implants with a custom restoration that fits your needs and preferences.

Our expertise in the restorative phase guarantees that your new prosthetic not only looks impressive but also function as intended.

Restorations We Offer

Our practice offers a variety of dental implant restorations to meet your individual needs.

Implant Crowns

An implant crown is designed to replace a single missing tooth. It is attached to the implant and functions just like a natural tooth. These are ideal for patients missing one tooth or multiple teeth in different areas of the mouth. Our team will work with you to select the perfect color, shape, and size of your crown to match the rest of your teeth. 

Hybrid Dentures

Hybrid dentures are a combination of traditional dentures and dental implants. They are an excellent option for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth and want a more stable and long-lasting solution compared to traditional dentures. Rather than using adhesive, these dentures are anchored by dental implants, ensuring they stay securely in place.

Teeth In A Day

Teeth In A Day is a revolutionary treatment that allows patients to receive a full set of teeth in just one day. This procedure involves placing four dental implants in the jaw and attaching a customized prosthetic on top. The result is a permanent and functional set of teeth that look and feel natural. Teeth In A Day is an ideal option for those who have lost all their teeth or need to have their remaining teeth extracted.
