Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are an innovative solution to tooth loss that replace the root of your missing tooth. A dental implant consists of a titanium rod that’s placed in your jawbone and a custom tooth replacement. 

By replacing the root of the missing tooth and not just the visible part, dental implants provide strength and reliability similar to your natural teeth. Dental implants restore both appearance and function to your smile, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence. 

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Dr. Pavlov works with you to determine if dental implants are the right solution for your needs. Dental implants are a great solution for most patients with missing teeth. 

Dr. Pavlov uses dental implants to replace both individual and multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are also used to restore entire rows of teeth. In order to be a good candidate for dental implants, you need good oral health and enough bone and tissue to support the implant. 

If you suffer from an underlying oral condition like cavities or gum disease, Dr. Pavlov helps you restore your oral health before getting dental implants. If you lack enough bone or tissue, a tissue or bone graft can help create more space for the implant. 

What is the process of getting dental implants?

Getting dental implants begins with a thorough examination. Dr. Pavlov reviews your medical history along with digital images of your smile and uses this information to develop your personalized treatment plan. Your treatment plan depends on the status of your oral health and the number of teeth you need replaced. In addition to the implant procedure, your treatment plan may include the removal of damaged teeth, as well as bone or tissue grafts. 

To place the dental implant, Dr. Pavlov cuts a small opening in your gums to reveal your jawbone. He then drills a small hole into the bone and places the titanium post. The dental implant is designed to replace the root of your missing tooth, so it’s given some time to heal and fuse with your jawbone before your custom tooth replacement is placed on top. 

Your artificial replacement tooth is made from impressions of your smile and customized to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth. Once your jawbone heals, you return to Arden Dental Services for placement of your artificial tooth. 

Dental implants allow you to reclaim the function, appearance, and confidence of your smile. To find out if dental implants are right for you, call Arden Dental Services or book an appointment online today.
