Dental Implants

 

Dental implants have become the standard of care for the replacement of missing teeth. Implants offer an alternative to crowns, bridges and dentures.  A dental implant is an artificial tooth root which is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. This allows a missing tooth (or teeth) to be restored to the best function and appearance without damaging adjacent teeth or tissues.

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, and will allow you to smile, eat, and speak with comfort and confidence once again. Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. With proper placement and good oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Dental implants make it possible for people who have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, injury, congenital defects, and other conditions to acquire fixed, natural-looking replacement teeth. Missing teeth not only make many people self-conscious when smiling or talking, they can also affect chewing and speaking. Unlike bridges and dentures, dental implants provide a conservative approach for the replacement for missing teeth. The result is a tooth or teeth that look and feel like those surrounding them, improving chewing and speaking and enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Dental implants can give you a perfect fit and provide a more aesthetically pleasing and more comfortable alternative to other treatments for missing teeth.

The Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure involves the placement of a thin post, which is anchored to the jawbone in the area of the missing tooth. Over a period of about three months, this post will integrate or fuse itself to the jawbone. Once the implant integrates, Dr. Raj Desai will attach a custom-made crown that is color-tinted to blend in with your natural teeth.
