Dental Implants

Your teeth are important. They perform numerous essential tasks each day. They are responsible for the first stages in digestion, breaking down your food so that the nutrients are more accessible to your body. They control airflow when you speak, allowing you to form certain sounds. They provide you with a beautiful smile. Your teeth are even responsible for maintaining the strength and shape of your jawbone. When you lose your teeth, all of these functions are greatly impacted. Even the loss of one tooth can have serious consequences. At Jon C. Packman DDS, we can help to replace your missing teeth with dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants?


Dental implants consist of small titanium rods that are surgically placed into your jawbone. The implants rely on osseointegration, a process in which your jawbone fuses with the rods. Successful osseointegration leads to the implants becoming a stable support for your replacement teeth. Other key pieces of your dental implants are abutments (connectors) and your new crown, or crowns. All work together to provide you with a natural, beautiful, fully-functional smile.

Implants for Every Need


Implants can be used to replace any number of missing teeth, whether you are missing only one, or you are missing a whole mouthful of them. To accommodate your specific needs, there are different types of dental implants:
•  Single tooth implants. One implant is placed in your jaw and is meant to hold a single crown.
•  Multiple tooth implants. Also known as an implant supported bridge, multiple tooth implants take the place of traditionally fixed bridges and partial dentures. The number of implants required for your specific replacement teeth depends on a few factors, such as the number of missing teeth and your jawbone.
•  Implant supported dentures. Implant supported dentures are made to replace an entire arch of missing teeth (or both of them). Your replacement teeth are supported on 6 to 8 implants.
•  All-on-4®. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is made for those who want dental implants but may not have enough bone mass to successfully support the necessary 6 to 8 implants. Instead, an entire arch of replacement teeth is supported by only four implants that are placed very strategically within your jaw.

Getting Your Dental Implants


Implants involve a surgical procedure. We begin by numbing the surgical sites. Incisions are made in your gum tissue, and holes drilled into the jawbone. The implants are then placed, and your gums stitched closed around them.

Healing from surgery can take up to several months, depending on how many implants have been placed in your jaw. Temporary teeth are provided for you to allow you some function of your mouth as your jaw begins to fuse to the implants. Once you have healed, we can then use our CAD/CAM technology to create your replacement teeth. Those teeth are screwed permanently in place.

Benefits of Dental Implants


There are several benefits of dental implants:
•  Permanent. They will not slip out of place while you eat or speak.
•  Comfortable. Your teeth are supported by the implants, rather than your gums.
•  Easy to care for. They can be brushed just like your natural teeth. Moreover, they do not have to be removed each night.
•  Restored eating and speech.
•  Your smile is restored, as well as your confidence.
•  Implants help to prevent the bone loss that normally follows tooth loss.
