Replacing Your Natural Tooth with a Dental Implant

The extraction of a tooth is sometime needed due to an unfortunate accident or dental infection resulting in the removal of one of your teeth. This can be repaired with a dental implant! Our dental associates at Sean P Avera DDS Inc. strive to give you the dental care you need for not only your smile but so you can get back to your regular habits of speaking and chewing.

The restoration of one or more missing teeth through the use of implants is a permanent and stable process. This can occur in a single outpatient appointment so you don’t have to First, an implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone, which is a screw made of titanium. This involves the process of a small incision made in your gums, a narrow channel drilled into the bone underneath, and then the implant screwed in. Your gums are then sutured afterwards to allow it to heal. Because it’s made of titanium, the natural process of osseointegration will occur in order for the tooth to connect with the bone.

After the healing period, your new dental implant will be placed to bond with the bone and the post. Depending on the type of implant needed for your tooth, you may also need an assisting tooth restoration product such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Be sure to discuss with your dentist which option is best for you and your smile.
