Implant Dentistry

At Arden Dental Center, we understand the significance of a healthy and complete smile. That's why we proudly offer dental implants to our patients who are dealing with missing teeth. These remarkable devices provide patients with a permanent and aesthetically pleasing replacement option that closely mimics natural teeth in both function and appearance.

Dental implants are an innovative solution that effectively replaces the root of a tooth and provides a reliable foundation for artificial teeth or dental crowns. Made from titanium, these small screws are surgically inserted into the jawbone, where they are fused with the natural bone over time in a process called osseointegration. This remarkable feature ensures that dental implants not only look like real teeth but also function just like them.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Arden Dental Center

Improved appearance:

Dental implants offer a natural-looking solution to missing teeth, providing a confident smile and enhancing facial aesthetics. 

Arden Dental Center

Enhanced oral health: 

Since dental implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support, this preserves your natural tooth structure and promotes better oral health. 

Arden Dental Center

Increased comfort: 

Unlike removable dentures that can slip or cause discomfort, dental implants provide stability and eliminate embarrassing situations.

Arden Dental Center

Restored functionality:

One of the biggest advantages of dental implants is their ability to restore full chewing power. 

Dental Implant Process

The dental implant process is a remarkable procedure that revolutionizes the way we restore missing teeth. Here are the steps involved in the process:

Initial Consultation

During your initial appointment, our dental professional will evaluate your oral health, examine your jawbone density and structure, assess the condition of your remaining teeth, and create your customized treatment plan.

Tooth Extraction (if necessary)

If you have a damaged tooth that needs to be replaced with an implant, it may need to be extracted. In some cases, if there is not enough bone present in the extraction site, additional bone grafting procedures might be required prior to implant placement.

Implant Placement Surgery

Once you are ready for implant placement surgery, local anesthesia will be administered to ensure comfort during the procedure. The dental professional then carefully places titanium screws into predetermined locations within your jawbone where missing teeth once were. 

Osseointegration

Following surgery, a period of healing called osseointegration occurs over several weeks or months. During this phase, the jawbone fuses around the implanted screws through processes such as new bone formation, ensuring stability and durability of future prosthetics.

Abutment Placement

After the implant has integrated with the jawbone, a skilled dentist carefully selects and places an abutment onto it. This small but essential component acts as a connector between the implant and the artificial tooth, ensuring stability and functionality. 

Artificial Tooth Placement

With meticulous precision, dentists carefully attach custom-made artificial teeth onto the implants using abutments or connectors. These prosthetic teeth are not only designed to fit seamlessly into the patient's mouth but also mimic their natural teeth in color, shape, and size.
