Dental Implants
 

Dr. Susanin specializes in incisonless placement of Dental Implants. Dental implants are becoming more popular in today’s dental society for a number of reasons. Implants are utilized to offer patients a foundation for new restorative teeth where natural teeth are missing or have been extracted. The implant offers the patient the opportunity to regain normal function of the tooth without being forced to resort to a bridge or a denture.

 

Benefits

 

  • ·The implant will osseointegrate (bond) with the existing bone.
  • ·The new implant will support your teeth firmly and safely.
  • ·Your new implants are aesthetically pleasing.
  • ·You will no longer have pain during talking or eating.
  • ·The dental implant will prevent progressive bone atrophy.
  • ·Implants have a proven scientific basis.

 

Procedure

 

The tooth structure has two main sections, the root and the crown. The root is the section of the tooth that is below the gumline. A dental implant acts as the restorative for this section of the tooth and can often be placed without any incisons. The metal implant acts as an anchor in the jawbone. The first step of the procedure is surgical placement of the implant. Under regular dental anesthetic,

Dr. Susanin will place the dental implant into the jawbone. There is often little or no significant discomfort with this procedure. This process can take less than 30 minutes depending on the number of implants being placed.

 

This implant will be left untreated for a period of 3-6 months. During this time, the bone will grow around the implant in a process called osseointegration. A removable crown may be utilized during this time period to allow for chewing and to preserve the cosmetic appearance..

 

The next step in the process is to attach an abutment to the tooth. This is achieved by exposing the top of the implant and placing the abutment. This is the part of the implant that will support the final crown.

 

Finally, an impression is taken of the implant and a final restoration is crafted. This restoration will be comfortable and cosmetically pleasing. Your completed implant will be fully functional, allowing you to resume normal activities.
