Dental Implant Restorations In Columbus, OH
Serving Dental Implant Patients in Westerville, Grandview, and South Vienna (London / Springfield)
When we lose teeth, not only our appearance is affected, but it can also affect the bone, tissues and nearby teeth, which is why dental implants are one of the best restorative solutions to missing teeth. Dental implants are small abutments made out of titanium and act as the foundation or root for a replacement tooth. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or provide full mouth restorations. A few implants can hold bridges or dentures in place and provide greater stability and functionality to your mouth as well as help improve your appearance.
How Are Implants Fitted?
- Your doctor will examine your teeth and X-rays to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants (bone grafts or other dental procedures might be needed before to make sure your implants will be successful)
- Once approved, the implants are surgically screwed into your jawbone under the gum line and allowed to bond with the bone for three to six months
- Once the bonding occurs, the abutments are uncovered and replacement teeth attached to the implant.
Your replacement teeth will feel and look just like your natural teeth, with good oral hygiene and good care, implants can last you for decades. However, if a tooth gets chipped, fractured, broken or suffers another type of damage you should visit your dentist for an implant restoration, to restore the look and functionality of your implant.
