Replace Missing Teeth

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the most durable and long-lasting method of restoring one or more missing teeth and they often last a lifetime with proper care.

Implants helps prevent bone resorption after tooth loss by stimulating the jaw bone, unlike dental bridges and dentures.

No maintenance is required after treatment beyond brushing and flossing, and visiting Parkside Dental for regular cleanings and exams.

We offer both single-tooth dental implant restorations with crowns as well as full-mouth restorations.

What are my dental implant options?

Dental implants are the best way to restore one or more missing teeth. Most commonly, the term “dental implant” is used to refer to a single-tooth restoration, which includes a single dental implant and dental crown, which attaches to the implant to restore the tooth.

However, we also offer full-arch dental implant restorations at Parkside Dental. This type of dental restoration uses a permanent, fixed bridge or a removable implant-supported denture to restore the upper, lower, or both arches of your teeth as an alternative to dentures.

What can I expect during the dental implant process?

Regardless of whether you are having one or multiple implants placed for your restoration, the implant placement process will consist of the same steps. First, Dr. Jason or Dr. Jean will take scans, images, and impressions of your mouth to help with the treatment planning process. Next, any teeth which must be removed will be extracted before the placement of your dental implant(s). 

During the placement process, your mouth will be numbed and you will likely be sedated. Then, a small hole will be made in your gums and jaw, and the dental implant will be inserted into this opening. The area will then be cleaned and sutured shut, and throughout the next few months, your mouth will be given time to heal as the implant “osseointegrates” and bonds permanently with your natural bone to create an artificial tooth root.

What can I expect during the restoration process?

After your dental implant is placed, you must wait 3-6 months for the process of “osseointegration,” which will bond your implant permanently to your gums and jaw bone. During this time, we will create your dental restoration. For single-tooth implants, we will make a custom dental crown that will be attached directly to your implant to restore your smile. You’ll come back into our office once your implant has healed, and your restoration will be placed.

The process of building an implant-supported bridge or implant-supported denture is a bit more complex. Usually, you will get a temporary set of false teeth after your implants have been placed. Then, your permanent set of dentures or bridges will be made while you heal. You may need to come into our office a few times during this period so that your mouth can be measured and assessed, and the fit of your permanent bridge or denture can be adjusted. Once your mouth has completely healed and your dentures or bridges are finalized, they will be attached to the implants, completing the procedure.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

If your gums and jaw are relatively healthy and strong, and you are free of any other major oral health conditions, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. To find out if they are the right option for you, schedule a consultation at Parkside Dental! We will take the time to discuss all of your options, offer honest advice, and answer any questions you may have about the process.
