The dental implant process begins with an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate to receive dental implants. At Morrison Dental, this initial evaluation is FREE!

Why dental implants?

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel, and function like natural teeth. If you’ve lost teeth, you can regain the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that dental implants appear natural and your facial contours and your jawbone will be preserved.

Dental implants allow you to keep the rest of your teeth healthy. They help to prevent the deterioration of your jawbone, keep your face structure in place, and keep your still existing teeth from shifting. Dental implants help maintain anatomy. When you have missing teeth, you run the risk of the bones in your face shrinking. Bone loss can lead to your jaw line receding and changes in your facial structure. Lastly, expertly placed dental implants will not move around, which means the problems that dentures usually have are completely eliminated.

How do dental implants work?

A dental implant is the best option to replace a missing tooth. In this procedure, a small titanium shaft is surgically implanted in to the bone and allowed to set. Once the implant is firmly set in their mouth, the dentist attaches the replacement tooth or crown on top of the shaft.

The dental implant process is completed in three main phases, typically over several months. During your first visit, we will place the titanium screw in your jaw bone. Eventually the bone grows around the shaft of the screw. This has to completely fuse with your jaw just like all of your teeth, which make take several months. Once the implant is firmly set in the mouth, the dentist attaches the replacement tooth or crown on top of the shaft ensuing a comfortable bite that fits in seamlessly with your smile.

You may require additional visits if bone grafting is necessary for successful implant placement. As with all other aspects of your dental implant placement, this is completes in our office by experienced dentists and periodontists.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

There are several advantages to implants. Because your implant fuses into your jaw, it serves as a permanent solution for your missing teeth. The adjacent teeth are left alone, thus unaffected. Implants stimulate the surrounding bone preventing further bone loss which can occur after tooth extractions. When you lose a tooth, the jawbone at the location of the missing tooth will slowly begin to dissolve away-a process called resorption. By placing a dental implant or several implants to support your bridge, you stimulate new bone growth in the are, preventing bone loss and helping your jaw retain it’s shape in the future.

Should the implant tooth ever wear out, another can simply be replaced on the implant. Dental implants will restore full function to your bite an will improve the appearance of your smile by filling the gaps.

Implants can also be used as support for a bridge or denture. This has several advantages. First, there is less adjustment period to acclimate the patient who only feels teeth rather than metal supports intruding into the mouth. Second, implants stimulate the surrounding bone and prevents continued bone loss that occurs after a tooth is extracted. Third, there is no discomfort or difficulty in eating with implants. Best of all, of course, they don’t have to be taken out all the time.
