A Permanent Smile Restoration

Do you have missing teeth? Perhaps you have a gap in your smile that is causing you embarrassment or interfering with the way that you eat or speak. You may even have a tooth replacement already but feel frustrated with its limitations. Dental implants can help restore your smile.

Dental implants are considered to be the most superior tooth replacement solution available and are just one of the functional and restorative dental treatments that we can offer here at Laser Family Dental.

These include the following:

  • Discretion: Many of our patients enjoy that dental implants are custom-made and color-matched to blend seamlessly into your smile. It can be difficult or even impossible to tell them apart from your natural teeth.
  • Low maintenance: Dental implants function like natural teeth and many of our patients enjoy that there are no drastic changes needed to their at-home oral care routine.  
  • Comfortable: Dental implants are firmly secured in your mouth and provide a greater level of comfort.  
  • No impact on adjacent teeth: Dental implants only rely on their titanium post which reduces the likelihood of damaging adjacent natural teeth. 
  • Long-lasting: Dental implants have been proven to last longer than any other dental restoration. 
  • Protects your jaw: Dental implants replace both the tooth and the root which stimulates natural bone growth. This can not only reverse bone loss but also strengthen your jaw.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Implant technology can be used to place single dental implants or to replace multiple missing teeth on a denture arch that is attached to between four and eight implant posts. Depending on your dental needs, Dr. Bachuri may suggest different implant solutions. 

  • Single or multi-tooth: for individual non-consecutive missing teeth
  • Full arch: for consecutive missing teeth
  • Implant-supported denture: for patients who want to keep their dentures but want a more secure solution.

Dental implants have a unique design that helps to set them apart from other tooth replacement solutions.

Each singular dental implant has two key components. The first is an artificial tooth, created from a porcelain crown, which is custom-designed just for you and will form the visible part of your tooth replacement. The second, and arguably most essential to the success of each implant, is a titanium post. This acts as an anchor for the visible part of the tooth and secures it permanently in place.

The titanium implant post is inserted into the jaw bone via the gum tissue. The placement is determined by a series of tests that check the viability of the jaw bone and check for any major nerves or other structures that could be compromised by inserting the post. 

Once in place, the bone closes around it in a process known as osseointegration. This takes a number of months, but once complete, the titanium post will be permanently secured into the jaw. The entire success of dental implants hinges on osseointegration. 

If the patient does not have enough healthy bone, it will not grow around the implant and the process will fail.
