Dental Implant Procedure
In preparation for your dental implant the area of your missing tooth is carefully cleaned and examined for suitability and type of tooth implant. In the most popular “root form implant,” a dental implant screw is embedded in the missing tooth site and temporarily capped. After the bone has integrated with the dental implant in a process called osseointegration a post is affixed to the dental implant and a dental prosthesis in the form of a perfectly natural looking tooth is attached to the post. For the dental prosthesis we make exacting measurements, molds, and color specifications that are sent to a highly specialized laboratory to assure a tooth of the highest quality. When the dental prosthesis is complete, we adjust it for optimal comfort, chewing, and appearance prior to permanent attachment.
Tooth Implant Composition
The tooth implant is made of titanium, a metal that is best suited for osseointegration. The tooth itself may be of ceramic material, a metal alloy such as gold, high grade porcelain, or high grade porcelain fused to a metal alloy. The choice of composition is based on the location of the tooth and attendant dental and aesthetic considerations.
Dental Implant Durability
The durability of a dental implant, just like that of a normal tooth, is largely dependent on good dental hygiene and regular dental checkups. With proper care, dental implants may last for many years.
