Dental Implants Q&A
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the next best thing to natural, healthy teeth. They include two parts: a titanium anchor that gets surgically inserted into your jaw bone and an artificial tooth, or dental crown on top.
Implants replace both the visible part of your tooth and the root beneath your gums. Since the titanium post actually stimulates bone growth, dental implants eliminate the risk of bone degeneration after tooth loss. The titanium also makes implants stronger than natural teeth.
What are dental implants used for?
Omnia Dental Care offers both single and multiple implants to improve a variety of oral health problems, such as:
- One or more missing teeth
- Shifting of existing teeth
- Jaw bone degeneration
- Impaired chewing and speech
- Poor appearance
If you’re missing multiple teeth, Dr. Priyawat or Dr. Kim may recommend using implants to support a bridge or overdentures. To replace a full set of teeth, Omnia Dental Care offers All-on-4®, a procedure that involves attaching bridges to four implants on your upper and lower jaw.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer many advantages, including:
- Smile restoration
- Comfort and convenience
- No interference with speaking or chewing
Since dental implants are stronger and sturdier than other tooth replacement options, they’re a cost-effective solution in the long run.
What is involved in getting dental implants?
First, Dr. Priyawat or Dr. Kim performs a comprehensive dental exam to determine whether implants are right for you. The team at Omnia Dental Care takes X-rays and impressions to measure if your mouth has the space available for dental implants.
While some dental implant procedures involve multiple surgeries, Omnia Dental Care offers immediate load implants, which requires only one surgery. Dr. Priyawat or Dr. Kim numbs your mouth then surgically insert the dental implant anchor and post into your jaw bone.
After your oral tissues heal, the team at Omnia Dental Care places a crown over the implant post. Once the crown is securely in position, you’re free to enjoy your permanently restored smile.
