What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth roots. They provide a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, ensuring a natural-looking and durable solution for tooth loss.

Why Choose Dental Implants Treatment?

Dental implants offer numerous benefits over traditional tooth replacement options:

Permanent Solution: Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants fuse with the jawbone, providing a long-lasting and stable tooth replacement.

Improved Oral Health: Implants prevent bone loss and preserve adjacent teeth, promoting overall oral health.

Natural Appearance: Designed to look and feel like natural teeth, implants restore your smile and facial aesthetics.

Enhanced Functionality: With dental implants, you can enjoy eating, speaking, and smiling confidently without worrying about slipping or discomfort.

Convenience: Forget about messy adhesives or removable appliances – dental implants function like natural teeth, requiring no special maintenance routine.

What Does the Dental Implants Procedure Involve?

The dental implant procedure typically consists of several stages:

Initial Consultation: During your first visit, Dr. Hakimi will assess your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if you're a suitable candidate for dental implants.

Implant Placement: In the next phase, the titanium implants are surgically placed into the jawbone. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort.

Osseointegration: Over the following weeks, the implants integrate with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, providing a stable foundation for the restoration.

Abutment Placement: Once the implants have fully fused with the jawbone, small connectors called abutments are attached to the implants, allowing for the placement of the final restoration.

Restoration Placement: Finally, custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures are securely attached to the abutments, completing your smile transformation.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. It's essential to practice good oral hygiene, including regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups, to ensure the longevity of your implants.
