What are Dental Implants?
There are many different methods a dentist can use to restore your missing teeth. The best options are dental implants. Unlike a bridge or partial dentures, implants are self-supporting. Because an implant replaces your tooth root and attaches to your jaw, the bone is better protected. With state-of-the-art technology and his skilled training, Dr. Proscia can blend the restorative tooth to match the rest of your smile. Once you understand the benefits of dental implants, you will enjoy the advantages of a beautiful smile.
Dental implants are small posts made of titanium and surgically inserted into the jawbone where your teeth are missing. The entire process usually involves two surgical procedures. Dr. Proscia will discuss with you the type of anesthesia needed for the procedure during your consultation with him. On your first visit, the implant is positioned directly onto your jawbone. After three to six months, the implant bonds with the jawbone under the surface of the gums. During the healing process, you will be fitted with temporary dentures and recommended you follow a "soft" diet. Once Dr. Proscia is confident your implant has bonded successfully to your jawbone, he will begin by attaching a small post that will stick out through the gums and act as an attachment to the implant. As soon as the teeth are positioned in the mouth, the post is no longer visible.
Once the entire process is done, implants function just like your natural teeth and with good oral hygiene can improve your overall dental health.
