What are Dental Implants & How Do They Work?

dental implantDental implants are unlike any tooth-replacement option currently available. This is because they are the only solution that can restore a missing tooth completely. Implants posts are made of body-safe titanium. The entire purpose of an implant is to serve in the place of missing tooth roots and teeth.

When inserted in the jaw, implant posts bond with tissue and bone in a process known as osseointegration. This fusing process provides a lasting and secure foundation for your new tooth or teeth and become a permanent part of your jaw.

How Do I Qualify for Dental Implants?

If you’re an adult in good oral and overall health, you’ll likely make a great candidate for dental implants. However, for treatment to be successful and long-lasting, you must have enough jawbone density to hold the implants securely.

If your jawbone is too weak to hold implants on its own, we can perform a bone graft. A bone graft is a procedure in which we take bone material from another area of your body or an artificial source and add it into the jaw to improve density.

What Implant Services Do You Provide?

At Chesapeake Contemporary Dentistry, we offer a wide variety of dental implant services and restorations. With these treatments, our dentists can replace everything from one tooth to an entire upper or lower arch of missing teeth. Our available solutions include:

Our team does all we can to ensure you receive the best treatment possible. When treating complex needs, our implant dentists work closely with local specialists, including periodontists and oral surgeons, for lasting and successful results. Most implant related procedures can be cared for in our office, including extractions.

Implant-Supported Crowns

When a tooth is already missing, implant-supported crowns are a popular option for complete replacement. These restorations work by attaching a custom dental crown to one dental implant. This treatment can restore a tooth from root to crown.

If you have several teeth missing in a row, we’ll likely recommend an implant-supported bridge. These restorations consist of three to five custom crowns affixed to two implants on either side for lasting support.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported complete dentures are designed to replace all teeth missing in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. At Chesapeake Contemporary Dentistry, we provide full and customized dentures supported by four to eight implants.

When multiple teeth need replacing, partial dentures provide a lasting solution when supported by implants. The number of implants required depends on your specific needs.

If you’re tired of wearing traditional dentures, we also offer reliable stabilization for your current dentures using the All-on-4 implant treatment method.

What Does Getting Dental Implants Involve?

This valuable information is essential for analyzing your oral health and accurately planning treatment. Detailed consultations include discussing your needs and goals to help us personalize your care.

During implant placement, we use precise surgical guides to place your implants with accuracy and skill. This involves using the right amount of pressure and placing them in the best position. Depending on your case, the procedure can take up to several hours to complete.

How Does All-on-4 Implant Treatment Work?

Dr. Moomaw and Dr. Roth use the All-On-4 Implant method to restore smiles where little to no natural, healthy remain. With this proven treatment, our dentists can help replace your smile completely with care that is as minimally invasive as possible. This is because All-on-four implants are designed to fuse well even if your bone density is low. During placement, we insert four implant posts at strategic angles to optimize the available bone.
