What Are Dental Implants
Dental Implants are titanium anchors designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to have his or her smile back, eat virtually anything, and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These titanium anchors act as tooth root substitutes.
The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for new teeth.
Small posts (Abutments) that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for replacement teeth.
Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Dr. Zakaria does not just place Implants, he places Implants that look like natural teeth. He employs the newest proven technology and his 30 years of experience to achieve the ultimate natural esthetic results.
Dental Implant Process
Consultation and Treatment Plan: During the initial phase of the dental implant process, imaging is gathered along with your medical and dental histories to give us a clear picture of your current health. We will then explore your treatment options with you to formulate a plan that ensures that both your health goals and budgetary needs are met.
Extraction: If applicable, the next step is to have the tooth in question extracted. In some cases, we may be able to place the implant at the same time of extraction. In others, bone grafting will be required prior to implant placement (see next step).
Bone Grafting: It is fairly common for the jawbone to lack the mass needed to accept an implant. In this case, a bone graft will be performed to strengthen the target area. Bone grafting is typically followed by several months of healing before the implant can be placed.
Dental Implant Surgery: During the procedure itself, a titanium screw is inserted into your jawbone. You will be anesthetized for comfort during the surgery, which takes about 1-2 hours.
Osseointegration: After placing the implant, we cover it with the surrounding soft tissue and let it sit for 3-4 months so that it can fuse with the bone.
Final Restoration: After osseointegration is complete, an abutment is placed within the implant in order to connect it with the final crown restoration. Typically, the final restoration is done by a general dentist.
