Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are composed of titanium screws that fuse to the bone in the jaw in a process known as osseo- integration. We will use a medical grade titanium implant that over time once it is inserted into the jaw will eventually fuse to the living bone cells in the jaw. The titanium screws becomes rigid allowing an abutment to be placed on top. Then a prosthetic or crown is placed on top of this. Once the titanium becomes fused to the bone it provides the perfect anchor in which to place your new teeth . This will serve as a fully functioning natural looking tooth that will look a feel like a real one giving the patient the ability to smile and chew just like they did before they lost their teeth.

As with all our dental services, you’ll be treated with the nurturing care and professionalism that embodies Pelham Dental Arts.  We will  make sure that you’re kept comfortable and informed throughout the implant process and will always be available to address any questions or concerns.

What are my options for dental implants? 

It is important to understand the many different types of dental implants and the fact that every patient is unique. Some patients will require one or two dental implants and others will require multiple tooth replacement with multiple implants being replaced.

How many dental implants can I have?

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth or even a full upper or lower arch. In the case where we replace a number of missing teeth by placing a few dental implants, the dental surgeon will place four implants and then attach a full arch of prosthetic teeth. This is where the name ‘ all on four dental implants’ comes from. All across the US dental implants have emerged as the unique choice for replacing lost and damaged teeth, among adults over 30 or 40 all the way up to their 70’s.

Our implant surgeons and periodontists diagnose and treat patients who are missing one or more teeth and advise on the best possible progression for being able to smile and chew properly with the use of dental implants.

How many visits will I need to get dental implants?

Receiving a dental implant will often require a number of visits. Normally it requires two surgical procedures and the time between these two procedures can be several months. Initially the titanium implant will be placed into the jawbone by an oral surgeon. Then the patient will wait 3 to 6 months in order to see if the the titanium screws have become fused to the bone in a process known as osseo-integration. During the second procedure part of the implant ,the doctor will uncover the gum tissue layer above where the implant was placed. At this point the doctor will decide if the implant has taken. If the implant has taken and everything is successful the doctor will then attach the abutment. This is where the new prosthetic or crown will be placed. Eventually the new crown will be placed on top of this abutment and this will be the finished dental implant. The crown will be cleaned and polished by the dentist. Now the patient has a natural looking tooth.
