What are Dental Implants?
There are many reasons people lose teeth, from extraction to injury. Replacing the tooth is a crucial step to take for the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw. When a patient has dental implants placed, they are taking the most effective step to fully reinvigorating their smile after losing teeth.
The process for getting dental implants placed involves just a few visits. We make it a point to educate our patients about the risks and benefits of the treatment process and even discuss the financial aspects involved. After we take x-rays and impressions using our digital radiography equipment and on-site Cone Beam CT scanner, we determine if you need additional treatment, such as bone grafting or sinus lifts. Dr. Wong training in placing implants is extensive; he has a Mastership with the American Dental Implant Association. After determining the proper course of treatment, we place as many titanium posts as needed into the jawbone. These posts act as tooth roots, providing the stability needed for the restorations to function as close to natural teeth as possible.
Implant Supported Restorations
Once the posts have properly healed and integrated with the jawbone, there are several restoration options:
- Variations of dentures
We use all ceramic material for the perfect mix of function and aesthetics. From the standpoint of providing ideal clinical care, we prefer to separate the appointments for patients receiving both implant and restorations, allowing the appropriate amount of time to pass for successful treatment.
