Waugh Chapel Dental

Focused on Your Smile!

Dental implants are a premier solution within our practice for replacing missing teeth, offering a durable and natural-looking alternative to traditional dentures or bridges. Implants consist of a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as an artificial tooth root. Once healed, a custom-made crown is attached to the post, seamlessly blending with your natural teeth to restore your smile’s appearance and functionality.

Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are celebrated for their strength, stability, and longevity, providing a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support, which preserves the integrity of your remaining natural teeth and maintains jawbone health.

The Dental Implants Process

  • Initial Consultation: A thorough examination and imaging tests are conducted to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
  • Implant Placement: The titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone, where it will integrate with the bone in a process called osseointegration.
  • Healing Period: A period of healing is required for osseointegration to occur, typically several months.
  • Abutment Placement: Once healed, an abutment is attached to the post above the gum line.
  • Custom Crown: A custom-made crown is then attached to the abutment, completing the restoration.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Provides a permanent solution for missing teeth
  • Preserves facial structure and prevents bone loss
  • Offers unmatched stability and comfort
  • Enhances chewing efficiency and speech clarity
  • Improves oral health and does not affect adjacent teeth
