Dental Implants Explained
Here’s the basic information: dental implants are artificial replacements for your natural tooth roots. The implants in use at Gentle Dental Care are crafted from titanium and they look a lot like a small screw. Implants are hollow, and the center of them is threaded as well. This allows us to attach any number of different caps, abutments, and appliances. So, you will have great options that vary according to your needs.
As it happens, titanium bonds to your bone extremely well. This bonding process is called osseointegration. Truth be told, it often makes an even stronger bond than the bond that used to exist between your bone and natural teeth.
If properly cared for, a dental implant can last a lifetime. And the procedure is easy.
The Dental Implant Procedure In Plainville, CT
Here’s how we do it: when you visit Gentle Dental Care for your first part of the procedure, the dental implants will be screwed into your jaw through a minor surgical procedure that happens right here in our office. Once in place, they are allowed to heal and fuse with the bone over the course of several months.
Following the healing period, you will simply return to our Plainville, CT dentist’s office to have your new crown, denture or permanent teeth affixed to the implant.
Our implant procedures are pain-free, because Dr. Peltzer is a seasoned sedation dentist who will go to great lengths to ensure your comfort.
