Dental Implants

Missing teeth can be a horrendous sight and an embarrassing experience for anyone dealing with this problem. You might feel too self-conscious to smile or talk and biting irregularities caused by tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits, leading to secondary health problems like malnutrition. When you come to the office of Dr. Bradley Reiner and Dr. Hagen Hastings, you’ll find a bevy of restorative dental services that are meant to save your smile and restore it back to its natural beauty.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are often confused with other restorative dentistry services. Simply put, dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. By replacing missing tooth roots, dental implants are provide patients with the strength and stability required to eat the foods you love without struggling to chew. Your jaw bone is very happy when you get a dental implant, too – the bone is stimulated and maintained while preventing further bone loss and helps maintain facial features.

Tooth loss can occur at any time and for a multitude of reasons:

  • Tooth decay
  • Root canal failure
  • Large cavities
  • Dental injuries
  • Gum disease (Periodontitis)
  • Trauma to the mouth (tooth injury)
  • Excessive wear and tear
  • Congenital defects

Our quality, proven and reliable procedures will consist of the following:

  • Quality, proven, reliable procedures
  • Exam and X-Rays
  • Placement of dental implants
  • Restoration to final results

Dental implants begin their journey as a titanium post embedded into the jaw. Titanium is a biocompatible material that mimics tooth roots, so the jawbone will fuse around the post. The post is then capped with a porcelain crown for a natural tooth-colored look.

The benefits to having dental implant dentistry are many including properly aligning your bite, natural-looking teeth, better oral health, bone loss prevention and so much more. Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods, improved speech and more. Your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance and improve your quality of life.

The Recovery Period

After the initial surgery, minimal discomfort is felt. Swelling of your gums and face may occur, as well as minor bleeding and bruising of the implant site. Prescription pain medications may be administered depending on your pain threshold. Healing will take a while – don’t be surprised if six months is how long it takes. Additionally, fitting and seating of the crown(s) can take up to two months. The timeframe depends entirely on individual cases and treatments. Though the process may take long, you can rest assured knowing your teeth will look their best in a few months.

Missing teeth can stand between you and a healthy, happier smile. We all want to look our best, and our teeth are no different.
