The loss of even a single tooth can have a significant impact on an individual’s confidence and well-being. It affects one’s ability to eat certain foods; it can result in further tooth loss due to movement of the remaining teeth; it can affect facial appearance (specifically the resulting “sunken-in” look associated with missing teeth); and it can have a significant impact on personal confidence and happiness.
Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are an alternative to bridges and dentures and they are not only extremely durable, but they look, feel and function just like natural teeth. Learn about CeraRoot Implants here.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jaw where it acts as an artificial “root” to secure the replacement tooth. A few months after the dental implant is placed in the jaw and it is securely attached to the bone (“osseointegration”), a custom-made crown, bridge or denture is attached to the dental implant.
Dental implants require numerous appointments over the span of several months. At the first “record-taking” appointment, Dr. Lewinger and his staff will take a medical history from you as well as x-rays, photographs and impressions of your jaw and teeth. In some cases, a cone beam CT scan may also be prescribed. This information will be used to determine the placement of the dental implant and to create a custom-made implant restoration just for your smile.
At a subsequent appointment, the dental implant will be surgically secured into the jaw, following which the gum tissue will be sutured back around the dental implant and left to heal for a number of months until the dental implant is secure (or “integrated”) in the jaw. In some circumstances, a temporary crown may be placed over the dental implant during the healing period.
Once the dental implant is integrated, Dr. Lewinger will design a custom-made restoration (such as a crown or a bridge) to fit over the dental implant, which will match the colour, size and shape of your natural teeth.
If you are missing one or more teeth, call to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Lewinger to determine if a dental implant is the functional and aesthetic smile solution for you.
