What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts designed to provide a stable foundation for true-to-life replacement teeth. If you are missing one or more teeth, you deserve to smile with confidence again. You can get that smile with teeth implants.
Because of their quality and strategic placement, dental implants can do all of the following:
- Restore your ability to chew anything.
- Allow you to speak with ease.
- Provide replacement teeth that look and feel natural.
- Protect the jawbone and prevent deterioration.
- Preserve your youthful facial contours.
Dental implants are the perfect anchors for new teeth! The tiny titanium posts bond with the jawbone to create a strong and reliable foundation.
Dental Implant Process
Are you ready to live in a little more comfort? Want to show off a complete smile again? Call Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper to schedule your implant dentistry appointment today. We’ll get you started right on the path to a full smile.
First Step: Dental Implants Evaluation
If you feel that implant dentistry might be the right choice for you, let’s complete an examination and health history consultation in our office. Our professionals will ask you about your specific needs and your goals for your new smile. Dr. Youmans is uniquely qualified to assess your needs and determine the best course of action.
Dental implants are the ideal solution for many patients. As long as you have sufficient jawbone volume and are in good oral health, we can replace missing teeth with dental implants because Dr. Youmans has special experience, certification, and training in this procedure.
Second Step: Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are small titanium rods that act as tooth root substitutes. Dr. Youmans can surgically place implants into the correct place in the jawbone. The position can be determined by a professional, like Dr. Youmans, using advanced imaging technology. Once the implant is placed, you will be given temporary dentures to use during your healing period.
Third Step: Healing and Osseointegration
You’ll return home to allow for healing and osseointegration—the process through which the implant fuses with the jawbone. You may experience some soreness in the days following your procedure, but it should be manageable if you follow the directions of Dr. Youmans. Even after your mouth has fully healed, osseointegration can still take a few months. Once the dental implant has completely fused with your jaw, you’ll come back in for your final appointment.
Fourth Step: Permanent Restoration Placement
Dr. Youmans will place your custom-made restoration to finish off your new smile. The restoration used will depend on the number of teeth being replaced. If you need one tooth replaced, you’ll receive a crown. If you need a few teeth replaced right in a row, you’ll receive a bridge. And if you need most of your teeth replaced, you’ll receive a denture arch. The restoration will attach securely to the implant, and you won’t be able to spot a difference between this new tooth and your natural ones.
Dental Implants FAQs
What are dental implants, and how do they contribute to cosmetic dentistry?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. They are an integral part of cosmetic dentistry as they provide a natural-looking and durable solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring both the appearance and functionality of your smile.
How do dental implants differ from other tooth replacement options?
Unlike traditional bridges or dentures, dental implants offer several advantages. They provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth, preventing them from shifting or slipping while eating or speaking. Additionally, dental implants stimulate the jawbone, helping to preserve bone density and prevent bone loss, which can occur with other tooth replacement options. This makes dental implants a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing solution for replacing missing teeth.
Who is a suitable candidate for dental implants?
Ideal candidates for dental implants are individuals who have good overall oral health, adequate jawbone density to support the implants, and healthy gum tissues. However, even if you have experienced bone loss or gum disease, you may still be a candidate for dental implants with additional procedures such as bone grafting or gum disease treatment. A consultation with a cosmetic dentist specializing in dental implants can determine if you are a suitable candidate and develop a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs.
How long do dental implants last, and how do I care for them?
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. It’s essential to practice good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing regularly and scheduling routine dental check-ups. Avoid chewing on hard foods or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage to the implant and surrounding teeth. Your cosmetic dentist will provide specific instructions on how to care for your dental implants to ensure their longevity and maintain your beautiful smile.
