What types of dental implants are available in Medina, OH?
Dental implant posts can be used to anchor several different types of implant prosthetics, depending on the patient’s unique dental needs, aesthetic goals, priorities, and budget. These include single tooth implants, implant bridges and implant dentures.
Single Tooth Implants
Single tooth implants are comprised of one implant post and a crown prosthesis, which replaces a single missing tooth. Multiple single tooth dental implants can be used to replace several missing teeth.
Multiple Tooth Implants
When a patient has a series of missing teeth, a multi-tooth dental implant restoration consisting of two dental implant posts and a custom bridge prosthesis may provide the most suitable solution for replacement. For some patients, implant bridges and single tooth implants may be combined into a single treatment plan.
Replacing a full arch of missing teeth can be efficiently and effectively achieved with a custom upper or lower implant denture that’s secured by four or more dental implant posts. The implants are implanted in areas with adequate jawbone density to support the denture. Clips are then attached to the dentures to clip onto the implants to secure them in place.
What Happens During The Dental Implant Procedure?
The first stage of the dental implant procedure involves the surgical implantation of the titanium post, which ultimately anchors the restoration to the jawbone. During surgery, the post is carefully implanted within the area of your jawbone that provides proper positioning and maximum stability for your future restoration. The area is then allowed to heal, and over the next three to six months the implant should become securely fused with the bone. When the implant (or implants) is fully healed, the abutment (fastener) and custom-designed restoration can be attached and fine-tuned to complete the process. In the unlikely event that a complication arises during the lifetime of your dental implant, our team is equipped to quickly diagnose and treat your concerns to prevent incidents of implant failure.
