If you’re missing one or more teeth, or maybe have a bridge or denture that’s inconvenient or troublesome, dental implants might be the ideal solution for you. These porcelain reconstructions are placed on a permanent post anchored into your jaw.
Reasons for dental implants:
- Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
- Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
The Surgical Procedure
For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the jawbone.
Major and Minor bone grafting
Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is absorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there are poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants.
