Types of Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery

From Wisdom Teeth To Replacement Teeth

  • Apicoectomy Mini Dental Implants
  • Bone Grafting Oral Pathology
  • Cleft Lip And Cleft Palate Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Dental Implants

Permanently Stronger Smiles

Dental implants are a well-known restorative treatment for patients seeking to replace the loss of teeth with strong and natural looking replacement teeth (dental crowns). Unlike partial or complete dentures that require daily removal and cleaning, dental implants are fixed into the mouth to serve as a permanent dental solution. After a certified periodontist places these strong titanium devices into the mouth, dental implants fuse to the jawbone to support strong, color matched dental crowns. With proper care, they can last a lifetime. Ask yourself if these benefits of dental implants fit your unique needs:

  • replace one or more missing teeth and prevent further tooth loss
  • reduce or prevent jawbone deterioration or movement of adjacent teeth
  • resolve certain cases of joint pain in the jaw (TMJ) or bite problems
  • secure a dental bridge or denture for added comfort and stability
  • restore proper biting, chewing and speaking abilities
  • improve esthetic appearance of a confident, healthy smile

The dental implant process is relatively simple and involves the initial placement of the dental implant (the titanium base) into the jawbone while the patient is comfortably sedated and relaxed. Once the gums are healed, a small incision is made over the dental implant and the custom-made crown is secured into place over the connector piece (the abutment) of the dental implant. Once placed, your new smile may look, feel and function just like a regular healthy set of teeth. Of course it is always important to maintain a healthy dental hygiene routine (brushing and flossing twice daily!) to support a strong smile for the future.
