Here are some of the more common issues that we address at Aspen Surgical Arts.

What is a Dental Implant?

Purpose of an Implant

The Procedure

  • Todays dental implant is a screw made of pure titanium that provides the foundation for replacing missing teeth or stabilizing dentures.
  • Over the past few decades, design improvements and surgical techniques in placing the implants, have made implants a very reliable and a cost effective way to replace missing teeth.
  •  The implant relies on your body's natural healing. After the implant is placed, your bone has a natural affinity to heal to the surface interface of the dental implant.
  • The best time to replace a missing tooth is within the first 4-6 months after having a tooth extracted. This allows your body to rebuild the supporting bone needed to support the implant as well as allow the gum tissue to heal.
  • In some cases, an implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth is extracted. This greatly depends on circumstances of the surrounding bone, gum tissues, and whether or not infection is present at the time of extraction.

 

 

 

Purposes of Dental Implants

 

  • Dental implants offer a wide range of restorative options, providing great flexibility and personalization for each patient.
  • Single unit crowns are permanently fixed in place to replace a single missing tooth
  • Multiple implants may be used to support dental bridges to replace an area of multiple missing teeth
  • Dental implants add comfort and stability for patients with dentures
  • Multiple implants offer a full set of teeth permanently fixed in place to patients missing all their teeth using long-span bridges or hybrid prostheses and the All-On-4 concept

CONSULTATION AND EXAM - Comprehensive examination and health history will be reviewed in order to help you determine the optimal treatment.  X-rays to measure the bone will be taken and models may also be taken to aid in proper implant placement. We will discuss your treatment options. Our office staff will help you with your insurance and payment options.

 

SURGICAL APPOINTMENT:  Most patients tell us that having a dental implant placed is easier than having a tooth extracted.  Implants can be placed under local anesthesia alone or with sedation for your added comfort. Implants are commonly placed in two stages. During the first stage, the implant is placed into the bone and the gum tissues is closed. The implant is then given 3-4 months of healing time to allow your bone to attach to the implant. During this time, we monitor the healing.  After healing has occurred,  the gum tissue over the implant is removed  and the post or abutment is placed on the implant. Then your restorative dentist can restore the implant!
