What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces the root of the tooth. It’s inserted into the gums and in time fuses with the jawbone, just like a real tooth. The implant is then topped with an abutment, which securely holds an artificial tooth or set of teeth in place.
Dental implants are a great option if you’re looking to replace a single tooth, but they can also be used to anchor a dental bridge if you need to replace a series of teeth. Or, if you are looking to restore an entire upper or lower set of teeth, dental implants can be used to anchor a full-arch prosthetic.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
When people rave about dental implants, they praise them for their security, durability, and convenience. Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime!
Here are some of the reasons why patients love dental implants:
- They’re comfortable. Because the jawbone actually grows around the dental implant to hold it in place, it just becomes a part of you.
- They function like real teeth. You can once again eat the foods you love without worry!
- They improve your appearance. At Jovan Prosthodontics, we custom-make your dental restorations so they look like your real teeth!
- They’re convenient. Dental implants and the affixed dental restoration can be cared for with regular brushing, flossing, and dentist visits.
How Can Dental Implants Help Me If I Need To Replace A Full Set Of Teeth?
At Jovan Prosthodontics, we love to help patients with dramatic smile transformations. If you’re looking to replace a full set of teeth, we offer several ways to leverage the security and durability of dental implants to give you great results with a full-arch prosthetic.
If you’re looking for permanence, you might want to consider All-On-4® dental implants, where a full upper or lower set of artificial teeth is anchored by just four dental implants. This procedure is more cost-effective than getting individual dental implants restored with crowns. It also offers more security than traditional dentures that are held in place with denture adhesive. With All-On-4, the prosthetic can only be removed by a dentist.
If you’re looking something that you can remove yourself at night for regular cleanings, you might want to consider full-mouth reconstruction with dentures! We offer both implant-retained dentures and implant-supported dentures.
Here’s the difference:
- Implant-retained dentures fasten directly to your dental implants using ball attachments.
- Implant-supported dentures are supported by a bar that is attached to your dental implants.
What Is The Process Like?
When you come to Jovan Prosthodontics, you can be confident you’re getting great care at every step of the way.
You’ll first come in for an initial consultation and talk with our caring team about your smile goals. Then, Dr. Ace, who is the world’s only dentist with a Master Certificate in Dental Technology, will use the latest in dental technology while planning your treatment to make sure you are a good candidate for dental implants.
During your second visit, you’ll have the dental implants placed. Dr. Ace will use planning software and a CBCT scan from your initial evaluation to ensure accurate and comfortable placement.
To make your procedure more comfortable, we offer dental sedation options, including IV sedation and general anesthesia.
At many practices, your custom dental restoration must be made by an off-site manufacturer. But at Jovan Prosthodontics, we make your restoration right here in our office! That means you won’t have to wait for your prosthetic to ship.
In fact, we’re proud to be able to give you a new smile in as little as one visit with “Teeth In One Day!” With same-day dental implant dentures and same-day dental crowns, you can come into our office without teeth and walk out with a whole new smile!
How Do I Know If I’m A Candidate For Dental Implants?
Generally, if you’re healthy enough to undergo oral surgery, you’re healthy enough to have a dental implant placed!
Certain medical conditions or treatments may disqualify you from treatment, but there’s only one to know for sure: Consult with the experts at Jovan Prosthodontics.
