The purpose of an implant is to replace missing teeth with a realistic prosthetic that looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth. At TLC Dental Care, the implant is a small post of titanium surgically implanted into the jawbone. Once the jawbone has healed and reached full strength, an abutment can be placed on top of the implant, holding the replacement crown in place. An implant crown will be custom crafted to match the color and shape of your existing teeth so that it blends in seamlessly.
Healthy gums and jawbone tissue are necessary for implant placement. Adequate bone is needed to support the titanium posts that replace tooth roots. An absence of gum disease is also essential to safeguard against gum tissue and jawbone infection. Dental implant patients also require preparatory procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lifts before restorative work. Additionally, some patients may benefit from sedation to feel calm and relaxed throughout treatment. During an initial appointment, we will thoroughly examine whether you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. We will also discuss the treatment details and answer any questions you have about treatment. When you schedule your consultation, mention if you are taking any medications or have had any previous sinus issues, as these factors can influence your candidacy for treatment.
