What is a dental implant?

A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. Therefore, when you lose a tooth, you lose both. Dental implants are substitutes for the roots of the missing teeth. Much like your natural root, dental implants act as an anchor for a replacement tooth or crown, or set of teeth. The human body accepts titanium, a corrosion resistant material that is completely biocompatible and stable.

Implants may be the right choice for anyone missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease, or decay. They are especially practical for patients who can no longer wear removable dentures.

CT Scanner

CT Scan

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. We use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. This technology allows us to determine whether or not you are a potential candidate for implants. 

Bone Grafts

Bone grafting is a simple procedure that is performed in-office. This procedure involves placing grafting material and possibly a membrane to cover the socket after tooth extraction. The graft, which is made of biocompatible material, aids in the regeneration of newly formed bone .

If you need to have a tooth extracted, ask us about bone grafting to preserve your socket and maintain your jawline. This quick, painless, and uncomplicated procedure can help to  prevent bone loss that can result in shifting teeth, difficulty in chewing, bite collapse, and the general appearance of aging.
