Our team is committed to finding cutting-edge, creative ways to replace missing teeth and fully recover your smile. At Perlmutter Dentistry, we are aware of how missing teeth can negatively affect your oral health, self-esteem, and general quality of life. With the help of dental implants, one or more lost teeth can be replaced with a durable, realistic-looking, and completely functioning prosthesis. Read on to learn more about dental implants and our wide range of implant services:
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, typically titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. These implants serve as a sturdy foundation for supporting dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. The result is a permanent and lifelike solution that closely resembles natural teeth in both appearance and function.
The Benefits of Dental Implants:
Dental implants offer a natural and seamless appearance, blending harmoniously with your existing teeth. The custom-designed dental restorations are meticulously crafted to match the shape, color, and size of your surrounding teeth, ensuring a beautiful and cohesive smile.
Improved Speech and Chewing:
Unlike removable dentures that can slip or cause discomfort, dental implants provide stability and functionality similar to natural teeth. With dental implants, you can speak and eat with confidence, enjoying a wide range of foods without restrictions.
Dental implants become a permanent part of your oral structure, eliminating the discomfort associated with ill-fitting dentures or removable bridges. The implants fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, providing a secure and comfortable foundation for your dental restorations.
Preservation of Bone and Facial Structure:
When a tooth is lost, the underlying jawbone begins to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. Dental implants help preserve the bone by mimicking the natural tooth root and promoting healthy bone growth. This, in turn, helps maintain the integrity of your facial structure and prevents premature aging.
Longevity and Durability:
Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution for tooth replacement. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, they can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective investment in your oral health.
Our Comprehensive Dental Implant Services:
At Perlmutter Dentistry, we offer a comprehensive range of dental implant services to address your specific needs. Our experienced team of dentists and specialists will guide you through each step of the process, ensuring optimal results and a comfortable experience. Our implant services include:
Implant Consultation and Planning:
During your initial consultation, our dental professionals will evaluate your oral health, discuss your goals and concerns, and determine if dental implants are the right option for you. We will conduct a thorough examination, including digital imaging and 3D scans, to assess the quantity and quality of your jawbone. Based on this evaluation, we will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
The dental implant placement is a surgical procedure that is performed under local anesthesia or sedation, depending on your comfort level and the complexity of the case. Our skilled oral surgeon or periodontist will precisely position the implants into your jawbone, ensuring proper alignment and stability.
Following implant placement, a healing period of several months is required for osseointegration to occur. During this time, the implants will fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a strong and durable foundation.
Once the implants have successfully integrated with the jawbone, our skilled restorative dentist will attach custom-made dental restorations to the implants. These restorations, including crowns, bridges, or dentures, will be carefully crafted to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile.
Implant Maintenance and Care:
Proper maintenance and regular dental visits are crucial to the long-term success of your dental implants. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your implants and surrounding oral structures. We will also schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the health and stability of your implants.
