What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that actually attaches to your jaw bone. To fit your dental implants, we would screw small metal posts into your jaw to act as the roots of your teeth. Once your jaw grows and accepts the new tooth root, we will fit your permanent teeth.
For dental implants, we can either attach dentures, dental crowns, or dental bridges to your implant location. Depending on your lifestyle and budget, we can help you decide what your dream smile will consist of.
Dental Implant Surgery
When you visit Dr. Rosen for dental implants, you won’t have to immediately seek out a specialist for care. Dr. Rosen has the training and experience to place your dental implant posts for you. This way, you can be comfortable with a team you know and trust while getting your implants.
Then, we can create your tooth replacements in our in-office dental lab. After your jaw heals, we will fit your beautiful new teeth into your smile and make sure you feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful by the time you leave our office.
A Candidate for Dental Implants
If you’re missing teeth, then you might benefit from dental implants. However, dental implants don’t work for everyone. In order to place implant posts, we need a good amount of bone structure in your jaw. If you went too long without tooth replacements, then you might have lost some bone structure.
The good news is that we can also do a bone graft procedure to increase the amount of bone mass in your jaw. Of course, this would add another step to your dental implant process, but it may be worth it if you want secure, natural-feeling tooth replacements.
