Dental implants are ideal for those patients currently suffering with missing teeth, old, loose and unstable dentures or ill-fitting or unsightly crowns or bridgework. Because candidacy for dental implants is based on a variety of factors, a consultation with Family Dental of Littleton is highly encouraged. During your visit, we will assess the affected area, your overall oral health and the amount of bone present in your jaw—all factors that can help determine whether or not you are a proper candidate. At your initial consultation, if it is determined that you are a proper implant candidate, the procedure will be scheduled.
Your dental implant procedure in Littleton, NH will begin with the administration of a local anesthetic. Then, incisions will be made in the gum line in order to expose the bone below. Once exposed, Family Dental of Littleton will use a specialized series of drills in order to create a single hole in the bone of the jaw for each dental implant. The dental implants are then inserted in the space created, and a small wrench is used to drive or ‘screw’ the implants tightly into place. Once properly placed, patients will be sent home so that the implant can heal properly.
The titanium alloy implant is specially designed to fuse with the bone of the jaw, creating stable root-like support for a dental prosthetic such as crown or dentures. After an adequate healing period (this time frame will be different for each patient), patients will return to Family Dental of Littleton so that their dental prosthetics can be placed. Once properly in place, patients will have the look, feel and functionality of naturally growing teeth.
There are several types of dental implants available to patients today, be sure to visit Family Dental of Littleton in Littleton, NH today to determine which implant type will help you to perfect your smile.
