Dental Implants

How we can reattach natural looking
and functioning crowns, bridges
and dentures when teeth are lost.

Tooth loss can have a far-reaching effect on your dental health and personal appearance. When you lose one or more teeth, your remaining teeth can drift out of position. This can lead to a change in the bite, the loss of additional teeth, decay and gum disease.

Dental implants can be an effective method to replace one tooth or several teeth. Each implant consists of a metal anchor that is inserted into the jawbone, and a protruding post, which is outfitted with an artificial tooth. Implants can also support a bridge, replace a partial denture or secure a fixed denture. The process requires surgery and may take up to a year to complete.

 The Typical Sequence of Steps

The first step is completed under local anesthesia. A metal anchor, or artificial root is placed into the jawbone. Bone grows around the anchor. This takes about three to six months.

 

 

Next, the surgeon will perform the Second Surgical Stage, a "healing cap" is placed when the implant is uncovered.

Then, you return to me, the restorative dentist, and the healing cap is removed. An impression of your implant and the surrounding teeth and soft tissues is made. In the lab a replica of your mouth is made and analyzed to find the best way to restore the missing teeth. If you are to receive an implant-supported single crown or a fixed bridge, than a metal post, or abutment, may be attached to the anchor. 

 

 

 

 

When your gums and jawbone have healed, a crown (artificial tooth) is constructed, then screwed or cemented to the post. Fitting your new crown properly may take several appointments.

Care of Implants
and the Prosthetics they Support

Brush and floss your implant twice daily, just like your natural teeth. Be sure to brush the back of the abutments and floss around the front, back and sides. Avoid chewing on hard objects or extremely sticky food. Proper oral hygiene will help keep your implants and your mouth healthy

Sky Diving Grandma Loses Her Denture -
     A Hilarious Video to Illustrate a Dental Point

     This grandma had the desire to Sky Dive and made a Tandem Jump with a Photographer to capture the experience. Unfortunately, the Photographer asked her to "Smile Wide for the Camera" Watch in real time and Slow-Motion how her upper denture slips out and flies away.
     She should have seen Dr. Rosenberg Before Sky Diving! Implant Supported Dentures Would Not Have Come Out. Implants can be simply placed and can allow your denture to snap in!

There are other alternatives to loose dentures.
