Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.

Evaluation
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your doctor will address your specific needs and considerations. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.

We will also discuss fees and insurance at this time. There are many types of insurance plans, and coverage for implants is varied. We will be happy to assist you in obtaining any benefits to which you may be entitled.

Procedures
Dental implants are metal anchors that act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts are attached to the implant to provide stable anchors in the gums for replacement teeth.

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. Healing time following surgery varies from person to person and is based on a variety of factors that include hardness of bone. In some cases, implants may be restored immediately after they are placed.

For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist designs the final bridgework or denture that will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.

After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. Dr. Garg will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. After two weeks your general dentist will be able to start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The teeth replacements are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.

Four Steps in the Dental Implant Process
Since Dr. Garg’s area of expertise is handling gum tissue, and the underlying bone, he is responsible for inserting the implant precisely into place.

Following the strong bond of the bone with the implant, your dentist will attach a post (called abutment) to the implant to connect the replacement tooth.
The dentist will also help you design the replacement crown by selecting with you the proper color, material and fit to blend in with the way your own teeth look and feel.

The same regular oral care and periodic dental checkups required by your natural teeth will help ensure the health of your new dental implants.

Function – Implants are the closest prosthetic to natural teeth, offering a titanium root for a solid foundation. Additionally, speech is easier and clearer with a full set of teeth. Dental implants can replace single teeth or full dentures.

Aesthetics – Implants complete a smile with beautiful restorations that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. You’ll experience the confidence that comes from a complete smile.

Health – With reliable dental implants, you can eat all the foods required in a healthy, balanced diet. Studies show that patients without teeth do not live as long as those with natural or prosthetic teeth.

A dental implant is a titanium tooth root that takes the place of a natural tooth root. When a patient suffers from the loss of a tooth or several teeth, the placement of dental implants creates a new smile as strong as nature’s original work. Dr. Garg will surgically implant a titanium tooth root into your jawbone, and your body’s bone tissue will fuse with the titanium to create a solid, reliable prosthetic tooth root. On this, a handcrafted tooth is adhered by one of the associate doctors in the same office, so that you can enjoy the function, beauty, and health benefits of a solid and natural smile.
