DENTAL IMPLANTS AND RELATED SERVICES

Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are great choices for patients missing one or more teeth. Dental implants are helping people rediscover the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy everyday living.

Dental implants are designed to look and function as if they were natural teeth. They will now allow you to regain the ability to eat and function normally, thus giving you the confidence of a natural looking smile. If you feel implant dentistry is a good choice for you, Dr. Chai will examine your oral health and take radiographs. If you have a healthy jawbone and are in good health, you are more than likely a good candidate for implants.

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone, and essentially replacing the root of a tooth. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing further bone détérioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

You are completely healed within 6 to 8 weeks after dental implant surgery, and afterwards, the restorative procédure is done to complété the dental implant. Either a crown, bridge, or denture is placed, recreating your smile and function of eating.

BONE GRAFTING (MINOR)

Over time, bone loss occurs due to previous extractions, gum disease, and injuries. Bone grafting can be done when there is inadéquate bone.
