Replacing Missing Teeth from Root to Crown
Jawbone health and dental well-being are closely linked. When a tooth is no longer in place, the jaw bone lacks the vital support it needs, losing its strength and resilience. The longer a missing tooth goes unaddressed, the more impact it will have on your oral health, function, and aesthetics.
Without a healthy tooth root in place to encourage proper jawbone function, gum-tissue rapidly recedes in a process called resorption. This can contribute to a prematurely aged appearance, as facial features begin to shift and sag, and neighboring teeth migrate towards the site of the absent tooth.
Because dental implants consist of biocompatible titanium posts, this material is accepted by the natural bone and tissue of the body. In a process called osseointegration, the titanium implant fuses with the jawbone over a several month healing period. Once properly fused, each post provides a secure and ideal foundation for essential jawbone stimulation and your custom-crafted restoration.
Planning Your Personalized Implant Treatment
We keep patients well-informed regarding their treatment to further establish trust in our team’s capabilities. Through precise and personalized care from our team, patients have the confidence they need to receive dental implants.
Our practice’s in-office digital technology creates highly detailed images of your dental anatomy. This provides our team with the information they need to plan an accurate and successful placement procedure. An x-ray is then taken to determine how many implants are needed and if additional procedures are required before implant placement.
Top-Quality Restorations for Finalizing Your Treatment
Once your implant has healed entirely, Drs. Jonathan and David Jacobs invite you back to our practice to affix your custom-made, permanent restoration. We produce realistic and durable implant-supported prosthetics, including crowns, bridges, dentures, and partials. We use a variety of materials based on your unique specifications, including porcelain. Porcelain is a resilient, natural-looking ingredient that can be matched precisely to your neighboring teeth, allowing for beautiful and completely discreet results.
