Dental Implants

Even after replacing a lost tooth with a crown, bridge, or denture, your bite may be less stable and your jaw may start to change shape.

Our Warsaw, IN, practice provides dental implants, a solution that makes restorations as stable as natural teeth and prevents jaw atrophy.

An Advanced Solution with Many Benefits

Restored Function

Dental implants replace tooth roots. They are inserted directly into the jawbone in order to give your restorations virtually the same level of stability as your natural teeth, allowing you to speak clearly and chew any foods you like.

Bone Retention

Following tooth loss, your body will begin to lose bone tissue from the jaw. Over time, the jaw will shrink and change shape, which will affect your bite and your facial features. Implants provide the stimulation necessary to prevent bone loss.

Long-Lasting Benefits

With a good oral care routine at home, paired with biannual visits to the dentist, your implants can last the rest of your life with proper care. However, crowns, bridges, and dentures will eventually need to be replaced.

Improved Appearance

Implants and the attractive restorations we provide to patients produce obvious cosmetic benefits, such as closing large gaps caused by tooth loss. They also prevent bone loss in the jaw, which contributes to a sunken facial appearance.

Superior to Removable Dentures

Implant-supported restorations are remarkably durable and strong. Dental implants can support partial and full dentures, minimizing slippage for individuals missing a large number of teeth. They typically offer superior comfort and confidence to traditional alternatives.

How do I know if dental implants are right for me?

Bone Grafting before Dental Implant Surgery

Since healthy bone growth is stimulated during the chewing action, missing teeth can result in the atrophy and loss of bone. For this reason, bone grafting may first need to be performed for some individuals in order to sufficiently strengthen the jawbone before an implant is placed.

Implants: What to Expect during Surgery

The implant procedure combines a number of steps designed to provide individuals with the most natural feeling prosthetic that is seamlessly integrated with existing teeth. If you are a suitable candidate, the following is the timeline of a typical dental implant procedure at our Warsaw dentistry practice:

Placement of the Implant

The implant post, consisting of a small titanium screw, is implanted within the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. The implant acts as a root for the tooth and supports a dental prosthetic.

Placement of a Temporary Tooth

We will place a temporary replacement tooth so that you can eat, speak, and smile confidently while you recover.

Osseointegration

Osseointegration is the process during which the bones and tissues fuse with the metal post. This healing period takes three to six months.

Placement of the Permanent Restoration

A final visit will be needed to place a permanent dental prosthetic atop the post, usually an all porcelain crown, bridge, or denture that matches the look and feel of the natural teeth.
