Lifelike Replacement Teeth with Dental Implants
Anyone can lose teeth to injury, disease, medications, and other problems. Fortunately, modern prosthodontic dentistry has brought us a biomimetic (life-imitating) restorative treatment for replacing one or more missing teeth: dental implants. Designed to replace your lost teeth roots, implant posts provide unmatched comfort and stability for your replacement teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Much like natural teeth, dental implants feature a root and crown structure. The root is made of a biocompatible material, like titanium, so that bone will naturally integrate with it. This root, or post, becomes the anchor for a single dental crown. When a patient needs multiple teeth replaced, a few posts are placed to secure a bridge, partial, or full denture.
How Are Dental Implants Placed?
With more than two years of post-graduate training in dental implant placement, Dr. Diamantakis can often place dental implant posts within our office. When necessary, we may work closely with an oral surgeon or periodontist in an interdisciplinary approach to dental implant procedures. You can rest assured knowing that a specialist is on hand to perform surgical placement of your implants. After the brief surgical procedure, you’ll wear temporary teeth while your jawbone grows into the implants – a process called osseointegration. Once your implant posts are solid, we will design and secure your crown, partial, or denture.
