Dental implants present a consistent option to replacing missing teeth. In addition, they also support other dental appliances or restorations such as dentures or bridges. They consist of lab-produced roots that are inserted onto your jawbone through surgical means.
Once the dental implants have been firmly secured onto your jawbone, the prosthetic teeth are attached to them and provide the final restoration. Dental implants can be secured into the upper or lower jawbone. Dr. Bob Bowling who is certified by the ADA, CDA, and Butte Sierra District Dental Society, restores the implants and coordinates their placement.
Dental implants are performed to provide the following benefits:
- Replace multiple missing teeth
- Resolve pain or bite problems
- Restore facial tissues
- Secure a bridge or denture
To determine if the dental implants are the correct solution for your situation, x-rays and impressions will be taken of your jaw and teeth to determine space. Your teeth will be numbed and the implant is surgically positioned into the bone. The dental implant will be integrated in the tissue during a 6-month period.
The artificial tooth, known as a crown, is designed to be fitted onto the post of the implant. After the crown has been secured and attached to the implant, your bite will be evaluated for proper function. Post-care instructions will be provided to ensure your dental implants remain durable and effective.
