Dental implants are specially designed to act as artificial tooth roots to stabilize your dentures. Dental implants stay securely in place because they’re fused to your jawbone. They’re typically made from titanium.
In an in-office procedure, Dr. Dharia surgically fuses the implants to your jawbone to produce a sturdy base for your replacement teeth. Your dentures are comfortably placed on top of your implants.
Dental implants come in different shapes and sizes and can be used to replace a few missing teeth or an entire set of teeth.
Dr. Dharia might suggest dental implants for a number of reasons, such as if you have missing teeth, if you want to improve your speech, or if your regular dentures keep falling out.
The procedure to place dental implants is straightforward. Dr. Dharia administers anesthesia prior to making an incision in your gums. Dr. Dharia drills small holes in your jawbone before placing titanium implants in the holes and stitching your gums closed.
The next step is a process called osseointegration where your new implants fuse with your jaw over time. After your dental implant is surgically placed it typically takes about three to six months for the successful fusion of your implants and jawbone.
Once the healing stage is complete, you return to the office where Dr. Dharia secures a supporting element (abutment) to the top of each implant. For the last step, Dr. Dharia attaches your dental prosthesis to the abutments.
