Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium post that, when grafted to the jaw bone, acts as an artificial tooth root. For individuals who are missing teeth or who have teeth that are severely damaged or decayed, dental implants offer a long-term, durable solution that is both functionally effective and aesthetically pleasing. Additionally, as dental implants are intended to last decades with proper maintenance and are affixed to the jaw, once installed, they essentially serve as new teeth, rather than temporary fillers. As well as acting as an anchor for individual crowns, dental implants can also be used to support other tooth restorations, such as dental bridges.

Implant Dentistry Restoration Procedure

Dental implants are placed by first drilling a small pilot hole into the edentulous site of the jaw (the location where the tooth is missing or has been removed by tooth extraction) so that the dental implant anchor can be screwed into the jaw bone. Once the titanium screw has been affixed to the jaw, a temporary cover is placed over the implant anchor so that the implant site can heal and the osseointegration process can take place (the process by which bone fuses with the titanium anchor).

Once the temporary crown has been replaced by the permanent crown, the process is complete. At Esplanade Dental Care, we have extensive experience with dental implant restorations and would be happy to work with you to improve your smile.

The dental implants restoration procedure can require several months to complete, so patients should expect to visit Esplanade Dental Care several times during the course of their treatment. Patient care is the highest priority at our general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry practice, and we will do our best to ensure your comfort during your visits.

Dentures

For patients who have lost most or all of their teeth due to periodontal disease, developmental defects, drug use, trauma, or other reasons, prosthetic dental dentures offer an effective solution to the problems brought about by tooth loss. Dentures, either partial or complete, cover sections of the patient's arch that are missing teeth, and are intended to improve both functionality and aesthetics. Dentures provide clear benefits for individuals who have suffered severe tooth loss, as they greatly improve both mastication (chewing ability) and phonetics (speaking ability). If you are missing a large number of teeth, Dr. Albert can discuss the merits of dentures with you and let you know whether you are a good candidate.

The colloquialism "dentures" is typically used to reference removable dentures, but affixed dental bridges can also be referred to as dentures.
