An Unparalleled Solution for Tooth Loss

Support for a Lifetime

Dental implants typically last several decades or even a lifetime. However, their success is dependent on your dedication to proper maintenance.

Protect against Jawbone Atrophy

Dental implants replace tooth roots and preserve the jawbone. Without the stimulation provided by tooth roots, the jawbone would atrophy, causing further tooth loss and a sunken appearance.

Achieve Strength & Stability

Because they are anchored in the jawbone, dental implants provide stability to your restoration, preventing it from shifting out of place so you can eat, speak, and smile confidently.

Certain Factors Can Impact  Your Candidacy:

Jawbone Density

To properly secure a dental implant, substantial bone tissue must be remaining in the jaw. Bone grafting may be necessary if you have suffered from bone recession.

Smoking

It is highly recommended that you quit smoking before dental implant treatment as it can increase your risk of complications by impeding the healing process.

Periodontal Disease

Healthy gums are essential to your oral health. To ensure the surrounding tissues are not compromised, some patients may need to receive treatment before dental implants can be placed.

Overall Health 

Certain conditions like autoimmune diseases can impact the success of dental implants. It is important that you are upfront about your medical history.

We Prioritize Your Comfort: Sedation Is Available

You may have anxiety about dental implant placement because you expect it to be painful. However, the treatment area is numbed with a local anesthetic before the procedure begins to prevent discomfort. Additionally, sedation can be administered to help you feel relaxed throughout treatment and have the most pleasant experience possible. Dr. Osga can discuss the best type of sedation based on your needs, such as your level of anxiety.

From Your First Consultation to Your New Smile

Usually, the implant process includes the following steps:

Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Osga will thoroughly examine your mouth and take X-rays to assess your oral health. Together, you can discuss various treatment options and develop the right plan for you. 

Dental Implant Placement

On the day of surgery, Dr. Osga will numb the treatment site and provide sedation to help you feel relaxed and comfortable. He will then place the titanium implant into your jawbone, where it will replace the lost tooth root.

Osseointegration

Osseointegration is the process during which the implant fuses with the jawbone. This step can take three to six months.

Abutment Placement 

Once your implants have fused with the bone tissue, Dr. Osga will place as small connector called an abutment on the dental implant just above the gum tissue. For some cases, this will be placed at the same time as the implant. 

New Restoration

Your custom-made dental crown, bridge, or denture will be attached to the abutment.

How YOU can benefit from replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

Dental implants address current concerns and protect against further complications. Loss of teeth can impact the way we talk, what we eat, what activities we partake in and how we feel about ourselves. Beyond the aesthetic concerns, when a person is missing a tooth, the integrity of the jaw bone is compromised. This can lead to further complications as surrounding teeth struggle to stay in their proper location. Crowded teeth increase the risk for plaque buildup between the teeth which can lead to poor oral health and possibly more missing teeth. 

Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy natural teeth. Why? The implant is like an artificial tooth root, similar in shape to a screw. Once the implant is placed, it begins to bond with your jawbone becoming a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth. These artificial teeth are called crowns, and they look and feel like natural teeth.  

Dental Implants are beneficial for adults of all ages that are looking to improve the appearance and functionality of their teeth. When properly cared for, they can last many decades. As other tooth replacement options such as dental bridges and dentures may need to be replaced every 5-10 years, dental implant longevity saves you time and money.
