Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and can also provide astrong retentive solution for your dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Dental implants are artificial roots that are made out of titanium and are placed into either the upper or lower jaw. Once an impression of the dental implant is taken, then Dr. Orcutt can attach implant crowns to the implant, or he can attach your new or current denture to the dental implant. The crowns Dr. Orcutt places on the dental implants are porcelain and natural looking and often enhance or restore patient’s smiles!
Don't be fooled by commercials advertising "Implants In A Day." The process of getting implants requires a number of visits.
X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself into the bone for up to six months. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.
After healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.
You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
With implant-retained dentures this never would have happened!
