Describing Dental Implants
When there are missing teeth in your smile, there are a variety of aesthetically pleasing ways to fill in the gaps, but few offer the same functional benefits as dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts surgically positioned beneath your gums and into your jaw, providing a stable base for replacement teeth. The implant post offers benefits beyond a secure fit for your restoration. Because they fuse to your jawbone through a process called osseointegration, they effectively halt any resorption caused from the absence of the original teeth.
In our office, Dr. Schneider performs this beneficial procedure for those missing one tooth or multiple teeth. We are equipped with a CBCT scanner that allows us to take 3D images of your smile, guiding us through the placement process with precision.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
While dental implants have obvious health benefits, not everyone is immediately qualified for this ideal treatment path. To benefit most from dental implants, a patient should have healthy gums and enough jaw tissue volume to support the implant.
When the jawbone surrounding the area needing an implant is too thin or has diminished to the point it cannot support integration, you may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure to bolster the area. Other patients may lack the bone height in their upper jaw, requiring a sinus lift to provide the room for the implant post to work properly.
When you visit 44th Street Dental for dental implants, Dr. Schneider places the posts right in our office and will create your customized artificial tooth with our CEREC machine. Depending on how many teeth you need replaced, we have a variety of restorations available in high-quality material and use a shade guide to match the prosthetic to your natural teeth.
For those missing only one tooth, we offer single implant crowns, and for those with multiple missing teeth, there are implant-supported dentures and bridges to complete the restoration process.
