At Aspire Implant Dentistry, we can replace one, multiple or even all of your missing teeth using a dental device known as an Implant. Dental Implants serve as the root for a tooth which DiCesare can then place a dental crown on top of, giving you a strong, permanent, a flawless tooth. Our patients know, that there are many advantages to replacing a missing tooth, and this is the most comfortable, natural feeling option. Dr. DiCesare is happy to discuss how a dental implant will benefit you.
What is an implant?
Dental implants are a titanium device that Dr. DiCesare places directly into your jawbone. Titanium is the ideal metal because it is biocompatible, which means that it is safe to be used in surgical procedures and implantation into the skeletal frame. Internally, our tissues will integrate with the titanium giving a strong bond and creating a strong base for your new tooth. The implant device resembles what we think of as a screw. With threads, this device is surgically placed directly into your jawbone by Dr. DiCesare.
How are implants placed?
Before the implant is placed, Dr. DiCesare needs to establish healthy, strong bone. This may be found naturally, or can be accomplished through a bone graft. Once sufficient bone is established, Dr. DiCesare will continue to prepare the jaw by opening the tissue and creating the space to receive the implant. He will place the implant and then the area is sutured closed. Healing properly can take some time, it can take anywhere from three to six months for your tissue to integrate with the implant device through a process called osseointegration. Once Dr. DiCesare finds the area sufficiently healed, a dental crown can be placed and you are left with a fully normal and functioning tooth.
How many teeth can I replace with dental implants?
Dental Implants can make a dramatic difference in your smile. Our patients can have one, multiple, or even all of their teeth replaced. There are even a variety of ways that multiple teeth can be replaced. We can stabilize a bridge with two dental implants, or replace all of your teeth using our All-On-4® Treatment Concept or with implant anchored dentures. Dr. DiCesare can discuss many options showing you how dental implants can create a much healthier, and complete set of teeth for you.
Why should I consider dental implants?
