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, implant techniques provide a wide range of tooth replacement solutions, including:
Single tooth replacement
Anchoring for a denture
If you are in need of replacement teeth, whether one or many, or if you need your denture to be stabilized, ask whether dental implants may be right for you. Dr. Guillot at Pine Belt Dental can perform the procedure in office, or may in some instances refer you to an oral surgeon for placement of the implant post, after which he will restore the tooth with a ceramic crown. This results in a totally natural looking tooth that is fully functional.
If you are uncertain if dental implant is for you, we offer an implant evaluation to see if your bone structure can support an implant procedure. After the evaluation, the next step is the comprehensive consultation and then the exam.
Post Implant Care
Although proper oral hygiene is always recommended for maintaining good dental health, it is especially important when a patient has received a dental implant. Bacteria can attack sensitive areas in the mouth when teeth and gums are not properly cleaned, thus causing gums to swell and jaw bones to gradually recede.
Recession of the jawbone will weaken implants and eventually make it necessary for the implant to be removed. Patients are advised to visit their dentists at least twice a year to ensure the health of their teeth and implants. Dental implants can last for decades when given proper care.
