Dental implants are the closest you’ll get to natural looking, healthy teeth. They allow you to eat with confidence, speak with ease, smile, laugh heartily and spend time enjoying all of your everyday activities without thinking or worrying about your teeth.
This technology has progressed dramatically with today’s methods being fairly routine and predictable. Modern implants have been used for 30 years and are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth. Plus, they allow your new teeth to look, feel and function naturally. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth. As an added benefit, Origin Dental Wellness utilizes Platelet-Rich Plasma to further strengthen and enhance regenerative growth.
Since the advent of the implant, engineering and enhancements to the implant have enabled dentists to expand the implant’s usefulness, including the replacement of missing or lost teeth. Today, dental implant techniques provide a wide range of tooth replacement solutions including:
The root implant is the most effective because it mirrors the size and shape of a patient’s natural tooth. This implant is often as strong as the patient’s original tooth. A titanium/zirconium implant (artificial root) is surgically placed in the jawbone then allowed to heal and integrate with the bone. Once the implant is in place and has had the appropriate time to adhere to your bone, a connector, known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crown. Next, the crown is custom-made in house with precision by our certified CEREC designer to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth just as well if not better than your original tooth. The final result is a natural looking, comfortable and functional tooth.
Additionally, a dental implant supported denture is a wonderful way to give your lower denture a more stable and solid feel. It is especially helpful if your lower jawbone has receded to the point it no longer can support a conventional denture with stability.
Origin Dental Wellness uses state-of-the-art components and the highest quality biocompatible materials that meet the increased demand for restorations with a superlative esthetic natural look combined with proper management all while adhering to the health and maintenance of the surrounding soft tissue. When a tooth needs to be replaced with an implant, Dr. Toler wants to ensure your procedure is done with not only the finest materials, but also the accuracy and care you deserve.
Curious about the amount of time it takes to replace your teeth with dental implants? There is no standard answer as each patient is different. After an initial consultation with Dr. Toler, she’ll provide you with a treatment plan including the estimated amount of time to complete the process. Total treatment time depends on your needs, medical and dental history, jawbone condition, and the technique and materials used. It can be as short as a few months, or more than a year for more complex conditions.
