I just had an implant put in today; and Dr. Bishop was so kind and patient. It took my mouth five numbing shots; for them to work on me. His team really calmed my fears. I've never had such a positive experience then I've had here at Dr. Bishops office. I definitely will be coming back.

Dental Implants - The Gold Standards For Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are small titanium posts that act as tooth roots. The dentist places the implant into the jawbone and allows it to fuse with the bone, acting as a foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge. Once the implant has fused with the underlying bone, the dentist attaches the replacement teeth to the abutments. In some cases, patients receive a temporary crown to cover the abutment until the gums have healed completely. In other instances, patients are fitted with the permanent crown during the procedure. Our dentist will work closely with you to determine which specific treatment plan is right for you.

What Are The Benefits Offered By Dental Implants?

Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants provide a number of oral health benefits and actually help preserve the health of surrounding teeth. Implants replace the roots of missing teeth, which stabilizes them and allows the remaining teeth to continue to receive stimulation from biting and chewing. This helps preserve the jaw's shape and density. The implant itself also serves to preserve facial integrity by preventing bone loss in the jaw, which occurs after tooth loss. Plus, the dental implant improves speech by replacing the root of the missing tooth. Patients who struggle with dentures often experience difficulties speaking clearly and slurring words. Dental implants don't have this problem since the implant replaces the natural root of the lost tooth. Finally, dental implants are aesthetically appealing since they look and feel like natural teeth. Patients can rest assured that their smile will look, feel, and function naturally after the treatment is complete.

The dental implant process begins with a consultation appointment, during which your dentist will discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions you may have. Once you decide to move forward and schedule your surgery, you will schedule an appointment to have the implant surgically placed in your jawbone. After it has healed, you will return to the dentist's office to have the abutment placed on top of the anchor screw. Finally, the crown is attached, and the restoration process is complete! The entire process can take anywhere from three to nine months to complete. Patients can expect some discomfort during the recovery period. Your doctor will provide you with additional information on the recovery process and medication recommendations to reduce your discomfort. Many dental implant patients find that their implants are able to last a lifetime with routine care and occasional dental maintenance procedures. With proper oral hygiene practices at home and avoiding habits like smoking that can compromise oral health, your implants will likely last a long time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements. They are made of titanium and are placed into the jawbone, where they then fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration. Once they are firmly in place, they're used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Dental implants are a great choice for many patients, but they're not the right choice for everyone. You'll need to meet certain criteria to be considered a good candidate for the procedure. Consider these factors when determining if dental implants are right for you.
  • Healthy gums and jaw
  • Good oral health habits
  • Enough bone to support the implant post
  • No active gum disease or decay
  • Willingness to follow all instructions given by your dentist after the procedure is complete
  • Ability to commit to the daily care of your teeth and gums during the recovery period
Dental implants are placed by an oral surgeon or periodontist who will surgically implant a small titanium post into the jaw. This post will act as the tooth's root and will be integrated into your jawbone so it cannot be removed. Once healing is complete, an abutment and top restoration will be attached to the dental implant. Your dentist will create a customized restoration that blends seamlessly with your other teeth for a natural look. The entire process should take about two to four months. Most patients are able to return to work the day after surgery. Patients should avoid strenuous activities for at least one week after the procedure.
Dental implants may need several visits over several months to complete treatment. First, your mouth will need to heal after extractions. Then, your dentist will place your implants and attach your restoration. After a few months, you will need to return for a checkup and possibly another visit if your implant needs to be adjusted. As you can see, it takes some time to receive dental implants from start to finish. That's why it's so important to work with an experienced dentist who will keep you comfortable throughout the process and ensure a successful outcome!
