Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth and restore your appearance & confidence, while giving you the ability to speak and eat naturally. In addition, they can support dentures & bridges and increase comfort while reducing the potential for bone loss. Implants consist of a metal anchor that serves as a substitute for the missing root, and a replacement tooth that fits over the anchor, matching your natural teeth. Dental implants can improve your quality of life, your comfort and your confidence. They can also improve your dental health, preventing the bone loss that can accompany missing teeth, and restoring facial structure.
what to expect with dental implants
The experienced dentists at Moore & Pascarella can evaluate your dental needs to determine whether implants are right for you. If you have multiple missing or unhealthy teeth, you may be better suited for a bridge or partial denture, options that your dentist might discuss with you at your appointment. No matter the best method of treatment for you, the result will be natural looking teeth, a beautiful smile and restored function.
We offer the latest technology for dental implants, designed to provide the most effective solution for our patients. The complete process of getting dental implants often takes several months, and happens in two parts for most patients.
The first part is having the implant placed in your jawbone. Titanium implants mimic the function of a natural root to hold the tooth in place, so chewing and speaking are easier and more natural. This will support your eventual replacement tooth, but needs time — 3 to 6 months — to heal and bond with the jawbone. In the meantime, you’ll wear a retainer with a temporary tooth if the implant is visible in your smile.
The second part of dental implant surgery is having the replacement tooth attached to the implant after the implant has firmly fused to the surrounding bone. The artificial tooth will be created just for you to perfectly match your smile, and will be able to look, feel and function like a natural tooth. Afterward, you can walk out of our office confident in your new, beautiful smile, and the ability to laugh, talk and eat normally again.
