What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant uses a titanium post with an abutment to secure a custom prosthetic, which will replace a damaged or missing tooth. Your implant post mimics the shape and size of a healthy tooth root and is surgically placed in your jaw. Implant posts are usually constructed from titanium, which is durable enough to support many types of restorations. Implants provide long-lasting anchors for fully functional prosthetic teeth that enhance your smile's appearance, health, and function.

Our Sanger Dental Implant Process

If you suffer from gum disease, we must address it before we can begin the implant process.

After you're approved for the procedure, we begin preparing to place your implants. Our practice features a state-of-the-art cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner that allows us to capture detailed 3D images. Using these images, we can meticulously plan out the size and placement of your implants. Following our in-depth preparation, our dentist surgically places your implant posts.

After your surgery is complete, we give you time to heal before placing your customized restorations. Everyone heals at a different rate, but the process usually takes eight to twelve weeks. We'll keep in touch to ensure your recovery goes smoothly and we are happy to answer any questions that arise.

What if I Need a Bone Graft, Sinus Lift, or Extraction?

If you lack sufficient jawbone density to support a dental implant, you will benefit from a sinus lift or bone graft. A bone graft is a surgical procedure that enhances the mass of your jawbone, allowing it to stabilize an implant. A sinus lift is a variation of a bone graft that reinforces the upper jaw. By receiving a bone graft or sinus lift before your dental implant, you can successfully achieve long-lasting results.

Whenever possible, our dentist strives to preserve your natural teeth. If you have a substantially decayed or damaged tooth causing you pain, we may recommend an extraction as a last resort to protect your oral health. Extracting the tooth can alleviate your discomfort and prevent an infection from spreading. We recommend a dental implant to restore your smile after an extraction because it will closely resemble the appearance and structure of a healthy tooth.

Our Selection of Implant-Supported Restorations

Our practice offers several implant-supported restorations to bring back the aesthetics and function of your smile. Depending on your unique case, we can provide you with:

Implant-Supported Crowns: Our team uses implant crowns to replace a single missing tooth. The crown connects to the implant post with an attachment called an abutment. Your prosthetic tooth matches the color of neighboring teeth and will look and function like a natural tooth, allowing you to chew and smile confidently.

Implant-Supported Bridges: An implant-supported bridge combines posts, abutments, and prosthetics to restore multiple missing teeth. In addition to replacing missing teeth, your bridge will keep other teeth from shifting out of alignment as time passes.

Implant-Supported Dentures: A set of implant-supported dentures can replace an entire arch of teeth. With this option, your prosthetic teeth are firmly secured and won't need to be removed like traditional dentures.

All-on-4®: Using the All-on-4 treatment method, our dentist can provide you with an entire arch of prosthetic teeth directly after placing your implant post. Instead of waiting for several months for your mouth to heal, your replacement teeth are secured immediately following the initial operation. We'll evaluate your situation to decide whether a traditional implant restoration or All-on-4 is suitable for your needs.
