Dental Implants: The Gold Standard for Tooth Replacement

Dental implants offer numerous benefits for patients seeking to restore their smile and oral health. Firstly, implants provide a permanent and reliable solution for replacing missing teeth, enhancing both aesthetics and functionality. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, implants fuse with the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.

Additionally, implants offer improved comfort and stability, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective and long-term solution for tooth replacement. If you think dental implants may be a great choice for you, contact our Seffner dental office today, and we’d be glad to get your consultation scheduled.

Implant Placement

Dental implant placement is a meticulously planned and precisely executed procedure. During the initial consultation, our experienced dental team conducts a comprehensive examination, including digital imaging and impressions, to assess bone density, gum health, and overall oral health.

Once deemed a suitable candidate, the dental implant placement begins with local anesthesia and a minor surgical procedure. Dr. Sheehy carefully inserts the titanium implant into the jawbone, where it fuses with the surrounding bone over a period of several months through a process called osseointegration.

Following successful integration, an abutment is attached to the implant, providing a secure foundation for the final restoration. Throughout the entire process, our priority is patient comfort, safety, and satisfaction, ensuring that each individual receives personalized care and support from our dedicated team.

Implant Restoration

When a dental implant becomes damaged due to factors such as trauma, infection, or mechanical issues, our skilled dental professionals utilize advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to identify the extent of the damage and develop a tailored treatment plan.

Depending on the nature of the damage, repair options may include replacing the damaged components, such as the abutment or crown, or performing additional procedures to reinforce the implant’s integration with the surrounding bone. Our priority is to preserve the integrity of the implant while addressing any underlying issues to ensure long-term success.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants
Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
