A Closer Look
at Dental Implants

Dental implants are a revolutionary restorative treatment designed to replace any number of missing teeth. While traditional prosthetics only restore the portion of tooth above the gumline, implants are embedded in the jawbone to replace the missing tooth roots.  These titanium implant posts help keep your oral structures strong and healthy and provide a permanent foundation for your crown, bridge, or denture

If you are not convinced about implants yet, we encourage you to learn more about the unique benefits of treatment.

4 Benefits That Only Come With Implants

Prevent Oral Health Problems

Missing teeth can cause other types of oral health problems, like jawbone atrophy and gum recession. This is because you lack the stimulation provided by the roots of the tooth. Since implants replace the underlying roots you can avoid these conditions and retain better oral health.

Maintain a Youthful Facial Structure

Low jawbone mass is not only a health issue, but a cosmetic concern as well for many patients. Jawbone recession contributes to a sunken or hollow-looking appearance often associated with people of old age. Since dental implants protect your bone tissue you will maintain a full and youthful facial structure. 

Enjoy All Your Favorite Foods

If you have any experience with removable dentures, you understand that chewing is not always easy even with prosthetic teeth. With the support of dental implants, your restoration will never feel loose or slide out of place, allowing you to eat all your favorite foods without restrictions. 

Worry Less About Maintenance

Maintaining dental implants is fast and easy. Unlike traditional prosthetics, implant-supported restorations stay fixed in your mouth at all times and are cared for similarly to natural teeth. With good dental hygiene and regular check-ups, your implants can last a lifetime.

A titanium implant post is strategically inserted into the jaw in the place of each missing tooth. Next, a small connector part known as an abutment is attached to the implant. Finally, the implant-supported restoration is connected to the abutment to fill the gap in your smile.  

Implant Dental Treatment Timeline

Our dentists can perform most steps of your dental implant treatment in a single appointment at our Germantown, TN, office. Here is what you can expect during the procedure.

Anesthesia

We start by administering local anesthesia to numb your teeth and gums. During your consultation, we can also discuss using sedation to ensure your comfort throughout the implant procedure.

Implants

Next, your dentist will make incisions in the gums and insert the titanium implant posts in place of your missing teeth. Prior to surgery we will have taken CT scans of your jaw and determined the optimal position for each post.

Temporary Restoration

Then your dentist will close the incisions and attach a temporary crown, bridge, or denture. This gives you complete dental function during the recovery period until you can complete the last step of treatment. 

Osseointegration 

Over the next four to six months the implants will fuse to your jaw in a process known as osseointegration. We typically wait until the implants have fully stabilized before securing a permanent prosthesis.

Restoration

Once osseointegration is complete, you will return to our Germantown office to receive your permanent crown, bridge, or denture. This prosthetic is custom-made to fit your mouth and will be designed to replicate the appearance of your natural teeth.

Do I Qualify for Implants?

During your consultation at our Germantown office, we will carefully assess your health and oral structures to ensure implant treatment is right for you. There are several factors we look at when determining your candidacy for dental implants.

Overall Health

Certain medical conditions like uncontrolled diabetes, heart disease, and autoimmune disorders can increase the risk of implant failure. If you are not healthy enough for surgical treatment we can recommend an alternative tooth replacement method.

Jawbone Density

You must have adequate jawbone density to support dental implants. If you have sustained jaw recession due to long-term tooth loss, you may be able to restore your candidacy via a preparatory bone grafting or sinus lift procedure.    

Oral Health

Besides missing teeth, you should have good oral health. Conditions like tooth decay and gum disease can lead to complications during treatment. Fortunately, in most cases we can correct these problems and get you on the right track for dental implants. 

Do I Have Other Options?

While we do what we can to help you qualify for dental implants, treatment is not right for everyone. If you are looking for a different solution, we can provide traditional dental prosthetics.  Traditional bridges and dentures are a fast and affordable alternative for many of our Memphis-area patients.
