For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.
Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation—using i-Cat imaging to determine the quality and quantity of bone—will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.
Frequently, provisional restorations can be placed on an implant at the time of surgery. This will save time, can aid in the healing process, and will esthetically enhance an implant site.
