Dental implants offer the opportunity to restore the health and beauty of your smile for years to come. To get started, reach out to Dr. Soleimani’s practice today.
Dental implants are titanium posts that function as artificial tooth roots for a dental restoration. They are the foundation for strong, durable, and attractive replacements for one or more missing teeth.
Dental implants consist of the titanium post and a connector called an abutment, to which Dr. Soleimani can attach a variety of tooth replacements, such as crowns or bridges.
To prepare your mouth for implantation, Dr. Soleimani makes tiny holes into your jawbone and sterilizes each hole using the Fotona LightWalker® laser. Laser-assisted dental implantation is more efficient than traditional dental implantation. It also produces less bleeding and better patient outcomes.
Once she’s readied your mouth, Dr. Soleimani implants the titanium posts. After this, you must wait for the implants to heal and fuse with your natural bone tissue before she attaches the abutments and tooth replacements.
Dental implants are superior to traditional tooth replacement options, like traditional dentures, for many reasons. First, they are natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing. They restore not only your smile’s appearance, but your facial shape, which often diminishes after tooth and bone loss.
Some of the advantages of dental implants include their exceptional comfort, stability, and durability, as well as their contribution to your improved oral health.
Because dental implants fuse with your natural bone, they are stronger and more secure than other tooth replacements. That secure fit also means that dental implants feel more natural and comfortable than options such as dentures.
With them, you can talk and eat confidently.
Dental implants are extremely durable. If you treat them well by brushing, flossing, and regularly visiting Dental Aesthetics and Wellness Center for cleanings and checkups, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
Dental implants not only beautify your smile, but also improve and support your oral health. For example, they prevent teeth from shifting, and because they aren’t cemented together, you can floss between them.
Dental implants also preserve natural bone and stimulate its growth.
Dental implants help many people with total or partial tooth loss.
To be a candidate for dental implant restoration, you must have healthy gums and bone strong enough to hold and fuse with an implant.
In addition, you must be ready to commit to a process that requires you to practice good oral hygiene practices, regardless of how you’ve treated your teeth in the past.
Some people, unfortunately, aren’t a good match for dental implants. If you have an uncontrolled chronic illness, if you smoke heavily, or if you’re receiving radiation for cancer of the head or neck area, you may not be eligible for dental implants.
If that is the case, Dr. Soleimani can help you find a restoration option that works for you.
