Dental implants are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. They are made of titanium (a strong, lightweight metal) and other materials that are accepted by the human body. Dental implants are a way to restore a lost tooth or several teeth with a custom-fitted artificial tooth that looks and functions just like the original.
If you are self-conscious because you have missing teeth, wear dentures that are uncomfortable or don't want to have good tooth structure removed to make a bridge, dental implants might be a great option for you.
At All About Family Dental, we utilize technologically-advanced solutions designed by companies (ex. Esparza by MIS Implant Technologies®) dedicated to providing premium quality dental implants.
There is no need to be referred to a specialist as our implant dentist, Dr. Smadych has completed intensive training and has a lot of experience in dental implant placement as well as bone grafting.
Dr. Smadych is also trained in advanced dentistry procedures such as concentrated growth factors (CGF) treatment which accelerates the healing process after implant placement.
A titanium screw will be surgically implanted into your jawbone and soon will fuse to the bone, becoming, in effect, a tooth “root.” After your gums and bone heal, an artificial tooth (or crown) is placed over this “root” and affixed so that you may speak and chew as naturally as you did before. Implants, in fact, are a good way to permanently affix dentures in the mouth so there is no slippage.
Even though implanted teeth are not your real teeth, they are still subject to the same wear and tear as your other teeth. It’s important to maintain an oral health regimen that includes brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups.
