Dental implants are the strongest, most natural-looking teeth replacements available! They have the added benefit of preserving the bone structure that is often lost when a tooth is missing, which is one of the negative effects that missing teeth have on your overall oral health.
At our office, we use the latest techniques and materials to ensure that your dental implant restorations will look and feel just like your natural teeth. Once your implants have been placed and healed, our team will work with you to create custom prosthetics that match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
Placement vs Restoration
When most people think of dental implants, they think of the placement process. This is the surgery during which the implant posts are placed into the jawbone. However, placement is only half of the process; the other half is restoration, and at our office, we specialize in this portion of the procedure. This means that we work with patients who have already had their implants placed by another doctor.
There are many reasons why a patient might choose to have their implants restored by our team. Maybe they had to travel to meet with their surgeon, the surgeon did not offer implant restoration, or perhaps they were not happy with their previous prosthetic and are looking for something better. Whatever the reason, we are here to help!
We understand that the process of getting dental implants can be overwhelming, which is why we begin the restoration phase with a consultation. During this time, we will sit down with you and go over all of your questions, interests, goals, and concerns. We want to get to know you so that we can create a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.
Tooth Replacement Options
Dental implants are placed by first implanting a titanium post into the bone structure where teeth are missing. It is a minor surgery that can usually be done under local anesthesia. Once the gums have a chance to heal from this surgery, our team steps in to complete the process and provide your new prosthetic tooth. With the implant itself acting as an artificial root, our custom-made crown is attached to serve as the replacement tooth. These crowns are extremely natural-looking, fully functional, and feel natural for our patients. We are proud to offer this top-of-the-line tooth replacement option to our Findlay, OH community!
If you are interested in learning more about dental implants or the restorations we offer to complete your implant process, we encourage you to contact our office and schedule a consultation. We would love to discuss your individual needs and help you receive the perfect prosthetic for your smile!
Single Tooth Replacement
If you are only missing one tooth, or multiple teeth in different regions of the mouth, a single implant will be placed into your jawbone. After a period of healing, our team can craft a dental crown to fit the area and blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.
All of the research and patient feedback indicates that this is the most successful treatment for replacing a single tooth. Once the implant is in place, it will never decay or need any additional treatment, such as a root canal.
