Dental implants are the ultimate solution to replacing missing teeth as they are the closest thing that a dental professional can provide that simulates an actual tooth. When integrated with today's latest technologies and techniques, the dental implant procedure is now easier and less invasive than ever. Through 3D planning, the implant procedure can be properly planned and executed digitally, well in advance, to guarantee the best possible outcome.
Studies have indicated, that those suffering from missing or decaying teeth, while uncomfortable and painful, also experience decreased confidence and self esteem. At Filliman Dental, our team offers dental implant placement and restoration to restore missing teeth so our patients can smile with confidence. If you are currently missing teeth or experiencing pain or discomfort, it may be time to give us a call for a free consultation. As your dentist, we will examine your oral condition, as well as your health history, to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
The dental implant procedure usually is phased into two stages. The first stage involves placing the dental implant, which acts as an artificial tooth root, into the jaw bone. With today’s advancements in technology, this is much less invasive than it seems. Often times, this part of the implant process can be even easier than receiving a dental filling or having a crown performed! Once this part of the procedure is performed, the implant is allowed to heal beneath the gums for approximately 4-5months.
The next stage is very similar to a typical crown procedure. An impression is taken of the implants position in the mouth. This can be performed with the aid of traditional impression material or through the use of a digital impression utilizing our CEREC technology. This impression will give us the ability to construct a crown that has the proper fitment and contour to function properly with your existing bite. After your crown is seated on the implant, you will be able to use the tooth just like you would a natural one! The best part is, maintaining the implant for a lifetime can be achieved with the same care as the rest of your teeth. Proper brushing and flossing will ensure your implant remains disease free and provide you with with many many years of brilliant aesthetics and unparalleled function.
