What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that we surgically embed into the jawbone. Because the implant is placed underneath the gum tissue, it acts in mouth as the root component of a missing tooth. After a brief healing period an abutment is placed. The abutment is a support structure that links the implant screw to your dental restoration. A single implant is usually attached to a porcelain or zirconia crown. If you are missing multiple teeth we will place multiple implants to support a fixed partial or complete bridge.

Dental Implant Options To Replace Missing Teeth

Dental implants provide tailored solutions for tooth loss, whether it’s a single tooth or a full mouth restoration, Bruce Gopin, DDS, MS has you covered with:

Single Tooth Replacement

A single dental implant is used to replace a single missing tooth. This involves inserting a titanium post into the jaw, followed by adding a custom-made crown that blends seamlessly with adjacent teeth. This option is ideal for its natural appearance and minimal impact on surrounding teeth.

Full Mouth Implant Replacement

For extensive tooth loss, full mouth implants offer a comprehensive solution using techniques like All-on-4® or All-on-6. These methods involve placing four or six implants to support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth, restoring functionality and aesthetics. This is a transformative option that also helps preserve facial structure and prevent jawbone deterioration.

Are You A Good Candidate For Dental Implants?

As a dentist and a periodontist, Bruce Gopin, DDS, MS is uniquely qualified to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. During your initial consultation, we will perform a comprehensive examination using advanced diagnostic tools, such as x-rays, CBCT scans, and digital impressions. By the end of your appointment, you will know whether or not dental implants are right for you.

Most patients qualify for dental implants. However, we may need to address bone deterioration or periodontal disease before we move forward with treatment. We may suggest a bone graft or other preliminary procedures to ensure the success of your implant.

Dental Implant Treatment Plan

The dental implant procedure begins with an initial consultation where the dentist evaluates the patient's oral health, bone density, and overall suitability for implants through exams and imaging techniques like X-rays. This stage of dental treatment is critical for crafting a tailored treatment plan which may include preliminary interventions such as bone grafts if necessary.

Dental Implant Consultation

Following the consultation, the actual implant surgery involves placing the titanium implant post into the jawbone under local anesthesia. This titanium post serves as a tooth root for your new restoration. After the implant is set, a period of healing, called osseointegration, occurs where the jawbone grows around the implant to secure it firmly in place. This process can take several months, during which patients may have temporary crowns fitted.

Once osseointegration is complete, the dentist attaches an abutment to the implant, which will hold the custom-made artificial tooth. The final step is the placement of the crown, which is designed to match the natural color and shape of the patient's teeth, completing the restoration.

Dental Implant Aftercare

Post-procedure care involves careful oral hygiene and regular dental visits to ensure the longevity of the implant. Patients are advised to avoid chewing hard foods immediately after the surgery and to maintain good daily dental care practices to support the overall health of the implant and surrounding teeth.

Benefits Of Dental Implants

An implant-supported restoration is the next best thing to your natural teeth. Because it becomes a part of you, your restoration will look, feel, and function just like any other natural tooth would. These types of benefits are largely unmatched by traditional restorations.

Dental Implants Are Secure

Unlike a conventional bridge or denture, implants mimic and restore the relationship between your natural teeth and jawbone. This allows for improved speech, eating, comfort, and aesthetics. You will never have to worry about embarrassing slips or discomfort during your daily activities.

Improved Oral Health

Implants are also better for your long-term oral health. It is the only restoration that provides stimulation to your jawbone. This stimulation will preserve the structure of the your jaw bone by preventing deterioration. Because implants rely on the bone, there is also no risk of structural damage to bone growth your surrounding teeth.
