If you are missing one or more teeth from your smile, dental implants may be suggested by our skilled dentists, Dr. Bansal, Dr. Chawla and Dr. Jun, to restore your smile. Dental implants are a surgical treatment and are available from start to finish at Brockton Dental and Orthodontics. When compared to other forms of tooth replacement, dental implants are considered exceptionally strong and stable, designed to replace the entirety of your tooth from the tooth root to the crown.
To place dental implants, a small titanium post is first surgically placed into your jawbone. This post acts as your new tooth root. A period of healing follows as the post fuses to the bone. In order to hold your new tooth, which is normally a crown, bridge, or denture, into place, we will place an attachment called an abutment on the titanium post after it has healed. When everything has been checked for quality and fit, your final dental restoration will be cemented in place.
Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural, healthy teeth. With dental implants, no one needs to know you ever lost a tooth. If you are interested in discovering all of the ways that dental implants in Brockton, Massachusetts can benefit your smile, we invite you to call and schedule your consultation with Dr. Bansal and Dr. Jun today. We are eager to help restore the brilliance and health of your smile!
A dental implant is a fantastic tooth replacement solution for one or more lost teeth. A missing molar being replaced with a single implant. Before the treatment begins, adequate anesthetic is given to make the procedure comfortable for you. Small incision are then made and a flap of gum tissue is carefully pulled back to access the bone. The bone is then drilled to accept the implant. A series of tools is used to gradually increase the size of the space and the bone is threaded to fit the implant perfectly. The implant is then placed in the bone and a healing cap is attached. The area is then stitched to seal the gums. After this phase of the procedure, the bone begins to fuse with the implant. This process takes several months. During this time you can wear a temporary restoration so you won’t have to worry about being without teeth. Once the implant has integrated with the bone, the healing cap is removed and an abutment which sits above the gumline is placed. Whether you’re getting a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth, or multiple implants for a bridge or to support a denture, dental implants have a natural feel and function offering you a long – term solution for missing teeth.
