DENTAL IMPLANTS

A Dental Implant is a small "anchor" made of titanium. It is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of your missing root. After Osseo integration, or when the surrounding bone has attached to the implant, a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant.
The new tooth looks, feels, and performs just like a natural teeth. Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations, whether you need to replace a single missing tooth or many teeth. They can even be used to replace a full denture. As anchor points, implants can also securely attach a partial denture or bridge.
A single tooth or a full arch of teeth which have been lost due to injury or disease can be replaced with dental implants. Titanium metal is used because of its compatibility with bone and oral tissue.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Healthier and more beautiful: When teeth are missing, the surronding bone begins to shrink. This unhealthy bone loos can make your jaw line recede. Dental implants can help prevent deterioration of the jawbone caused by loss of teeth, so your face retains its natural shape.
As an alternative to bridgework, dental implants eliminate the need to grid down healthy teeth when replacing one or more adjacent teeth.
More comfortable: Bacause dental implants are securely anchored, there is no slipping or movement as there is with dentures. This eliminates some of the key worries of dentures, including poor fit, gum irritation, and pain from exposed nerves.
More confident: with dental implants, you will never need to cover your mouth when laughing, smilling or speaking. You can eat your favorite foods without pain or fear of embarrassment and taste every bite. You´ll look better, feel better, and live more confidently.



WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE IMPLANT PROCEDURE?
The dental implant process involves several steps that take place over a time period that average from six to eight months. The typical process will include the following steps:

Initial Implant Placement- This procedure is typically performed in your dentist´s office under local anesthesia. Your Doctor places the implant into your jawbone. Over the next several months, bone will attach to the surface of the implant anchoring it into position. In some cases, an additional minor procedure creates an opening through which your artificial tooth will emerge.


Implant prosthetic attachment- During this phase, your dentist painlessly attached a prosthetic "Dental Post" to the implant. A simple impression will be taken and over the next few weeks an artificial tooth will be made for you as a fuctional natural restoration.

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS?
If you´re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you´re probably healthy enough to have an implant whether you´re missing teeth as a result of an injury, disease, or decay. General good health and adequate jawbone structure is the key requirement.
Your doctor will tell you if you are the right candidate for implants. Dr. Jorge Mustre and his doctors are knowledgeable dentist who will spend quality time with you to listen to address your oral health concerns.
