What are Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This titanium post will act as the tooth root providing a strong foundation for the replacement tooth. Then the dentist will use that to attach a replacement tooth. Dental implants do not come loose like dentures and can last a lifetime if cared for properly along with regular dental visits. One implant can be placed to restore a single missing tooth, or multiple implants can be used to secure a fixed bridge or denture.

About The Dental Implant Procedure

The procedure for dental implants requires multiple visits over several months. Dr. Mazhari has the training and expertise to offer full services for dental implants. After the comprehensive evaluation, she will create a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Mazhari will personally perform both phases of the dental implant process; the tooth implant surgery as well as the restoration with a dental crown, bridge or denture.

Placing the Implant – Dr. Mazhari will place the dental implant, a tiny titanium post, into the bone. The dental implant will be allowed to heal and integrate with the natural bone, serving as the artificial root for the new tooth. The healing process can take several months. Depending on your case and the position of the missing tooth or teeth, a temporary crown may be placed in the mouth while the implant heals.

Restoring the Dental Implant – Once the dental implant has healed, Dr. Mazhari will restore the dental implant by placing the prosthetic tooth. While the dental implant is healing, a dental crown will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. This will serve as the replacement tooth. The dental crown is secured to the dental implant for a permanent restoration.
