Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a medical advancement in tooth replacement. They can provide you with a “natural” look and a secure feeling that will renew your sense of comfort with your smile.
We offer dental implants as a more secure and long-term solution to eliminate the discomfort and slippage that so many people experience with dentures. Implants can provide a firm anchor for one replacement tooth, for a denture or for several individual teeth.
Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are artificial tooth roots inserted into the jaw to replace missing teeth. In addition to health benefits, implants blend in with other teeth. Implants can also enhance your eating choices and improve your speech.
A dental implant consists of three pieces—an anchoring root, an abutment and a crown—and is accomplished in three steps. The first stage involves placing a titanium root into the jawbone to serve as an anchor. This root is then given time to merge with the jawbone. In the second stage, the protective cover of the anchor is removed and replaced with an abutment (connector). Finally, in stage three, a crown is created to match the other teeth, and is then connected to the abutment, successfully recreating the tooth.
At Robinson Dental Group Family Dentistry, sedation dentistry can be used during the dental implant procedure to help our patients relax and feel more at ease. It allows us to provide gentle treatment with utmost precision. During a consultation for dental implants, you will have the chance to experience the new i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D imaging system. This allows the dentists at Robinson Dental Group Family Dentistry to take a 3D image of your mouth so that your dental treatment can be personalized to your unique anatomy. This precision is especially valuable in the placement of implants.
