If you think you know about dental implants, think again! They’ve changed a lot since implants were first introduced several decades ago. Implants are now regarded to be the best treatment possible for the replacement of missing teeth. Merion Village Dental offers two-visit dental implants from our downtown Columbus location!
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants can do what other types of replacement treatments can’t. Providing permanent restoration, dental implants:
- Prevent other teeth from being altered in the process
- Support crowns, bridges, or even dentures
- Are stronger than natural teeth
- Encourage new bone formation in the jaw
- Correct bite problems experienced by missing teeth
We place dental implants in two visits.
The process of getting dental implants involves an initial consultation where we will take digital x-rays and provide a bone assessment for compatibility with an implant. We will walk you through your custom treatment plan and schedule your implant appointment.
The dental implant process & timeline
Every dental implant begins with the surgical placement of a titanium root into the area where the tooth is missing. Titanium is a biocompatible material that encourages new bone growth and support. Once the surgical site has properly healed and new bone is formed, an abutment is placed onto the implant root. This abutment can support the final fixed prosthesis – either a porcelain crown or dental bridge that will create a permanent “new” tooth!
Implants Look, Feel, and Function Like Real Teeth
Dental implants are stand-alone tooth replacement treatments that bring the life back to your smile. If you’re missing a tooth, it can cause aesthetic concerns as well as cause other teeth to shift out of place. Ask us today if dental implants are the right solution for your dental needs!
