What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are innovative tooth replacement options designed to mimic natural teeth' structure and function. Unlike dentures or bridges that rest on the gums or adjacent teeth, dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for prosthetic teeth. The implant post is made of biocompatible titanium. Over time, the post fuses with the surrounding bone, creating a strong and stable foundation for the replacement tooth. The abutment is then attached to the implant post, connecting the post and the dental crown. Finally, the dental crown is custom-made to match your natural teeth' color, shape, and size, providing a seamless and natural-looking result.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer numerous benefits that make them an excellent choice for tooth replacement:

  • Improved Appearance:

    Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, restoring your smile's aesthetics and boosting your self-confidence.

  • Enhanced Functionality:

    Implants function just like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and chew comfortably and without restrictions.

  • Long-lasting Solution:

    With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective tooth replacement option in the long run.

  • Preservation of Jawbone:

    Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving your facial structure.

  • No Impact on Adjacent Teeth:

    Unlike dental bridges, implants do not require the alteration or support of adjacent teeth. They stand independently and do not compromise the integrity of neighboring teeth.

The Dental Implant Process

The dental implant process typically involves several stages:

  • Initial Consultation:

    During your first visit to Affinity Dental, Dr. Salvo-Ale will conduct a comprehensive examination, including dental X-rays and scans, to evaluate your oral health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.

  • Treatment Planning:

    Dr. Salvo-Ale will create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs based on the examination results. This plan will outline the number of implants required, the timeline for the procedure, and any necessary pre-implant treatments.

  • Implant Placement:

    Dr. Salvo-Ale will surgically place the titanium implant post into the jawbone in the next phase. This post will act as a sturdy foundation for the artificial tooth. Local anesthesia and sedation options are available to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

  • Osseointegration:

    Over a period of several months, the implant post will naturally fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This creates a stable and secure anchor for the dental crown.

  • Abutment Placement and Crown Restoration:

    An abutment will be attached to the implant once the implant has integrated with the jawbone. The abutment acts as a connector between the implant post and the dental crown. Dr. Salvo-Ale will then customize and place a lifelike dental crown on the abutment, matching it seamlessly with your natural teeth.
