Dental Implants

Tyler, TX.

Dental implants are built to provide a strong base for replacement teeth that appear, feel and perform like original teeth. If an individual has missing teeth, he/she retrieves the ability to eat almost everything and can smile confidently again, knowing that his/her artificial teeth appear natural and also that the facial structure will be maintained with the help of implants. The implants are just small titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw bone by the dentist where teeth are lost. The bone fuses with the titanium which builds a strong base for artificial teeth. Along with that, dental implants can help maintain facial structure, preventing bone loss which happens when teeth are lost.

Dental implants are transforming the way people live! With their help, people are retrieving the comfort and confidence to speak, eat, laugh and enjoy life.

Evaluation for Dental Implants

If just like other people, you too feel implant dentistry is the right choice for you, our dentist request that you undergo a dental/radiographic exam and health history. During these consultation visits to your dentist, your particular requirements and considerations will be discussed with either Dr. Nash or with an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our dental practice. Your queries and concerns are crucial to us and our entire team will work with you very closely to help make your dental treatment a success.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are actually metal anchors, which play the role of an artificial tooth root. They are inserted surgically into your jaw bone. Tiny posts are then fixed to the implant, which projects out through the gums. These posts render stable support for artificial replacement teeth.

For maximum patients, the installation of dental implants includes two surgical processes. First, implants are inserted within your jaw bone. For the initial three to six months after surgery, the implants are below the surface of the gums, slowly fusing with the jaw bone. You may be able to wear temporary dentures and consume a soft diet during this period. Simultaneously, your restorative dentist builds the final bridgework or denture, which will eventually enhance both aesthetics and function.

After the implant has fused to the jaw bone, the second stage starts. The surgeon will expose the implants and fix a small healing collar. Dr. Nash can then begin creating your new teeth. An image must be taken. Then attachments or posts can be fixed to the implants. Then, the replacement teeth are made over those attachments or posts. The whole procedure generally takes six to eight months. Maximum patients do not feel any disturbance in their daily life.
