Why should I choose dental implants?

As one of the most secure and long-lasting tooth replacement options available, dental implants act as a natural part of your smile and replace that missing tooth you’ve been hiding.

The Implant Treatment Process

Consultation & Placement

At your initial consultation, we will take CBCT and intraoral scans to create a custom treatment plan that suits your unique needs. Over the next two weeks, we will refine your treatment plan, and then you'll return to have your implant placed. Using a fully-guided, all-digital DIO Implant System, we will place your implant directly into the jaw bone, and apply a UV light to make the surface hydrophyllic, which helps the implant integrate more quickly with the surrounding tissues. This speeds up healing and reduces the chances of any complications.

Healing & Osseointegration

Experience a seamless recovery after your implant surgery. While traditional implant methods require 3-6 months of healing time as the implant fuses with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, the remarkable UV activation used as part of the DIO Implant System cuts that time down to as little as 8 weeks. After 8 weeks, you'll return to the office for a check-in, in which Dr. Merandi will evaluate your progress and provide insight on what to expect from the rest of the treatment process. Our dedicated team will be there every step of the way during this crucial phase to ensure your healing is on track.

Applying the Restoration

Experience a complete smile transformation with our dental implant treatment. After the implant has seamlessly integrated with your jaw, it's time for the final step - placing your restoration. This is the part of the implant that is visible and resembles a natural tooth. Our expert team will custom design a dental crown that perfectly matches your smile. With the crown securely attached to the titanium implant through an abutment, your smile will be flawlessly restored. Get ready to show off your new, confident smile!

Frequently Asked Questions

A single tooth implant is a popular dental solution that consists of three components. First, there is a titanium implant, which is shaped like a screw and serves as the foundation. Second, an abutment is used to connect the implant to the restoration. The restoration is the third component and is typically a dental crown that closely resembles a natural tooth. Unlike removable partial dentures, single tooth implants are stable and do not move or shift.

Dental implants are made using high-quality titanium in reputable laboratories. These labs offer a variety of standard post sizes for the implants. The restoration, on the other hand, is a personalized prosthetic that is tailored to meet each patient's specific needs and aesthetic preferences. Your dentist may create the restoration in-office using advanced technology or send detailed impressions to a trusted laboratory. The laboratory will then craft a durable and natural-looking crown made from porcelain, which closely resembles tooth enamel. Once completed, the crown is firmly attached to the implant by your dentist.

With proper placement by an expert and regular maintenance, dental implants can last for 30 years or even a lifetime. However, it's important to note that the restoration may need to be replaced over time due to regular wear and tear from chewing and biting. Just like traditional crowns or dentures, regular visits to the dentist will allow you to monitor the condition of your restoration and the health of your implant, ensuring the longevity of your smile.

While it is possible for dental implants to become infected, this complication is extremely rare and usually occurs when the implant is not properly cared for after the placement surgery. By following your doctor's post-operative instructions, the chances of developing an infection are very low. It's important to maintain good oral hygiene, including regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings, to keep your implant and surrounding tissues healthy.

Yes, dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can prevent bone loss. When you lose a tooth, the jawbone no longer receives stimulation from chewing and biting, causing it to deteriorate over time. This can lead to a weakened jaw and the shifting or loosening of surrounding teeth. Dental implants mimic the function of natural tooth roots by being placed directly into the jawbone. This stimulation from chewing and biting forces helps to maintain the integrity of the jawbone and prevent bone resorption.

While every implant case is unique, some patients may be eligible to receive an implant in just one visit. In such cases, a temporary restoration is provided to protect the implant during the healing process, which typically takes between 3-6 months. During this time, you can speak and eat normally. Your dentist will closely monitor your healing progress and take impressions or digital scans of your teeth to craft your final restoration. During your implant consultation, your dentist will guide you in choosing the best tooth replacement option based on your individual oral health needs.
