What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a functional, strong, and long-lasting tooth replacement option. During the appointment, a titanium tooth root replacement is inserted to your jawbone where your original tooth root was. Over time, this implant fuses to your bone, anchoring firmly in place. A dental crown is then attached to this implant, effectively serving as an original tooth.
Who can benefit from dental implants?
Dental implants are a perfect way to replace a missing tooth. In addition to replacing an individual tooth, dental implants can also serve to replace several missing teeth or even a full set of teeth. All-on-4® dental implant treatment is a special method whereby a full or partial arch of teeth is anchored in place using four strategically placed implants.
What should I expect at my appointment?
The team will install your implant in several stages. Initially, SEDA Dental may extract a tooth or complete a bone graft in order to prepare for the dental implant. During the procedure, they will numb the area that is to receive the tooth. You may also receive general sedation in order to ensure your comfort. The team will make an incision into your gums and then install the titanium post into your jawbone.
