Benefits of dental implants
Dental implants offer a permeant teeth replacement option, and they are the only treatment that replaces the entire structure of your tooth, from root to tooth. Dental implants are durable and long-lasting, and they prevent bone loss in your jaw, as well as prevent your teeth from shifting and your face from changing shape.
There are several types of restorations that use dental implants, depending on how many teeth you are replacing. When you are missing a single tooth, Dr. Jay will place an implant that supports a dental crown. Multiple missing teeth in a row can be replaced with a dental bridge supported by two implants. Patients missing a full arch can have complete dentures placed on 4-6 dental implants, and these dentures offer the best fit.
Placing dental implants
Dental implants are surgically inserted into your jaw bone, and over time they will fuse in place. During your initial consultation, Dr. Jay will evaluate your mouth and determine if you are a suitable candidate for implants. Some patients may require bone or tissue grafts, and you will typically have to wait a few weeks after extraction to have them placed.
Once the implants are placed, your body will need a few months to heal. Once the implants have fused with your jaw bone, Dr. Jay can prepare the implants to connect with the prosthetics and take impressions of your mouth to send to the dental lab. After a couple of weeks, your new teeth will be ready, and you can return to the office to have them fixed in place.
Dr. Jay began his career working in a dental lab, and his experience gives him a unique perspective on designing beautiful, natural-looking restorations for your smile.
