Dental Implant Placement and Restoration
Utilizing advanced technology and surgical techniques, implant dentistry provides highly-realistic, highly-functioning replacement teeth, complete with supportive roots that mimic those of your natural teeth. Rather than having to visit a secondary specialist for your implant placement, Dr. Vahadi offers a complete range of dental implant services, from placement to restoration. If necessary, he can also perform prerequisite procedures, such as bone grafting and guided tissue regeneration, to help you become a better candidate for implant placement.
Tooth Loss and Implant Dentistry
The majority of adults in the United States will experience the loss of at least one permanent tooth by the age of 45 (many of them due to advanced periodontal disease). While conventional tooth replacement options focus on rebuilding the appearance of your smile and your ability to bite and chew, they cannot address the underlying consequences of tooth loss. With roots missing, your jaw bone will lose some of the stimulation that keeps it strong and healthy, causing it to lose density over time and increasing your risks of future tooth loss.
Dental implants are typically made from titanium – a biocompatible material that becomes integrated with your jaw as the bone heals around the implant posts. After fusing with your jaw bone, the implants provide an anchor onto which Dr. Vahadi will secure your replacement crown, partial denture, or full denture, depending on how many teeth you’ve lost.
The Benefits of Implant Dentistry
Dental implants, which offer a prosthetic solution to replacing lost teeth roots, offer a number of benefits over traditional bridges and dentures, including:
- Improved overall oral health
- The prevention of jaw bone deterioration
- Improved chances of retaining all of the rest of your natural teeth
- Lifelike stability for your replacement teeth when you bite, chew, and speak
- Improved facial appearance with the support of prosthetic teeth roots
- A long-term solution; with the right care and maintenance, implant posts can last for life
