Today, people seeking to improve the appearance of their smile have more options than ever before. For many years, patients with one or more missing teeth would have to use dentures or another forms of traditional bridgework; while these still provide many people with the ideal tooth replacement solution, dental implants are also helping people create the perfect smile. Dental implants are an innovative form of technology that provide a permanent solution to missing teeth. Whether you have lost teeth to illness, injury, or accident, Dr. Javid and Dr. Hossein are here to help. People choose implants for many reasons, including:
- Wanting a permanent solution to missing teeth
- Aesthetic satisfaction
- Wanting to avoid the hassle of denture creams and powders
If you have been curious about dental implants but intimidated by the prospect of oral surgery, rest assured – this procedure can be done under local anesthesia. Highly precise placement of each implant results in a seamless appearance, firm secure bite, and hassle-free function. You will love the look and feel of your new oral implants.
Creating the Perfect Fit
Patients seeking dental implant placement must first be assessed by a dentist specializing in this procedure. Once we have determined that implants are the right treatment for the patient, precise measurements of the patient’s mouth are taken. These are used to begin crafting the permanent crowns.
First, the titanium posts must be set into the patient’s mouth. This can be done under local anesthetic so the patient remains conscious during the procedure but experiences no pain. Temporary crowns are placed on the posts while the posts settle into place. In just a couple weeks, the permanent crowns will be ready. The permanent crowns are carefully painted to match the surrounding teeth so a flawless appearance is achieved.
