There are many options when it comes to replacing a missing tooth, but dental implants are by far the most stable. Compared to bridges or dentures, implants are more comfortable, last longer, and are less disruptive to the surrounding teeth. At Pearl Dental Studio, we work with your periodontal or oral surgeon to create a replacement tooth that looks and feels just like the original!
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a fixed dental prosthesis – it replaces the tooth root below the gum line with a metallic, screw-like structure. Once the implant is integrated within the bone, a dental prosthesis can be made to connect to the implant above the gum line in the form of an implant crown, implant bridge or implant-supported denture.
Unlike dental bridges or crowns, implants replace the entire tooth structure instead of just the parts you can see. In other words, implants replace the outside and the inside of your tooth, from the root to enamel. Often considered the best method for replacing missing teeth, dental implants can last well over a decade without replacement and feel just as comfortable and natural as genuine teeth! The installation process is easy on adjacent teeth, and implants are specifically designed to hold their place, providing sturdy support for eating, speaking, and smiling. If you think dental implants may be the best option for you, call Pearl Dental Studio today!
The Pearl Implant Restoration Process
During your visit, our dentists will create the groundwork for your dental implant procedure. Our initial evaluation will include x-rays and dental impressions to determine the best options for your health and comfort after the implant is installed.
Working together with professional periodontal surgeons, our team will help you prepare the space you need to get a fit that is secure and natural. We reverse engineer our treatments with the end goal in mind, such that the surgeon is able to place the implants in a more ideal location to allow for a better result. We will refer you to a specialist for implant placement and coordinate with them to comprehensively plan and complete your procedure.
After your implant is placed, and the area has had time to heal, a cap is placed on the implant and your new crown or tooth is installed. Book an appointment today and experience the benefits of dental implants firsthand!
