The Dental Implant Process

 

Dr. Scott Musslewhite goes through a thorough evaluation to let you know whether you’re a candidate for implants or not. They require adequate bone structure and can be established within one visit.

*Teeth Implants can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures to eliminate slipping.

The procedure begins with the evaluation. After the patient, in office is sedated, the oral surgery begins in which a titanium post is implanted into the jawbone for each missing tooth or for the new teeth that will anchor a bridge or denture. Nature will take its course, causing the bone and tissue to fuse with the titanium post. This creates a solid foundation.

Once secured, Memorial Cosmetic Dentists will attach a handcrafted, permanent crown to each post. The restorations will match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile.

By imitating an entire natural tooth, from the root up, implants offer a prosthetic that closely mimics nature. The result? Patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods. Speech may also improve. Strong and secure, your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and improve your quality of life.
