Are you missing a tooth or two and feeling self-conscious when you smile? Don’t worry; dental implants might be the perfect solution. As the gold standard of tooth replacement, dental implants can restore your smile’s beauty and function. Davinci Smiles offers dental implants for a single tooth, for multiple teeth, or even all of your teeth and restore functionality.
Your Second Chance With the Perfect Smile
Dental implants are the ultimate solution for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to injury, disease, or decay. They are essentially artificial tooth roots made of titanium or zirconium, surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a stable base for a replacement tooth or bridge. Implants are incredibly durable, and they look and feel like natural teeth. With proper care, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants can give you a second chance to have the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
Reasons for Dental Implants:
- You have one or more missing teeth
- You have difficulty speaking or chewing due to missing teeth
- You feel self-conscious about your smile due to missing teeth
- You are experiencing bone loss in your jaw due to missing teeth
- You want a long-lasting, low-maintenance solution for missing teeth
- You do not want to compromise the health of surrounding teeth
- You want to avoid the discomfort and inconvenience of removable dentures
- You want to improve your overall oral health and prevent future dental problems
Biocompatible Dental Implant Materials
Biocompatibility is a crucial factor for dental implants. Medical-grade titanium, zirconia, or a hybrid of both materials can be used for durable dental implants. Titanium is the most common material for implants because it’s highly biocompatible, so the body is unlikely to reject it. Additionally, titanium is a strong and long-lasting material that can withstand the pressures of daily use. Zirconia is a newer material that is also highly biocompatible and offers aesthetic advantages due to its tooth-colored appearance.
The Complete Dental Implant Journey:
- Consultation: During the initial consultation, your dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine if dental implants are right for you. They will also create a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
- Implant placement: Once the treatment plan is finalized, the dental implant(s) will be surgically placed into the jawbone. The healing process, called osseointegration, typically takes 3 to 6 months.
- Abutment Placement: After osseointegration is complete, the dental implant will be re-exposed, and an abutment will be attached. The abutment serves as the connector between the implant and the crown.
- Crown Fabrication: An impression of the abutment will be taken and sent to the dental laboratory to create a custom-made crown. The crown will be fabricated to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth.
- Crown Placement: Once the crown is ready, it will be attached to the abutment and the dental implant. Your dentist will ensure the crown, bridge, or denture is properly aligned and that your bite is comfortable.
