A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root that can be used in combination with a dental crown to create the perfect tooth replacement. Each dental implant is crafted with a special titanium alloy that can fuse directly with your jawbone, just like your natural tooth root.
When a patient loses a tooth, the jawbone underneath can start to deteriorate. Dental implants are the only restorative option for missing teeth that replaces both the tooth root and the surface area of your tooth.
The Benefits of a Dental Implant
- Dental implants provide all the same functionality that you enjoyed before your tooth loss.
- They support the jaw bone and prevent deterioration, keeping your face looking younger and more beautiful.
- The porcelain crowns used to restore a dental implant look beautiful and feel natural. No one will be able to tell that you once lost your tooth.
- Dental implants can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They can also be used to secure implant supported dentures.
At our practice, we can create your implant right here in our office. Dr. Overholtzer has the skill, technical experience, and technology to place and restore beautiful, functional implants.
We utilize the latest i-CAT technology in our dental implant procedures. The i-CAT 3D imaging technology allows us to map out your procedure completely and plan the most ideal restorative outcome. With i-CAT, we can make our procedures more accurate, precise, and predictable. After your implant is placed, we will use CEREC technology to craft an exquisite porcelain crown restoration.
Free CT Scan with Implant Consultations
All patients who are interested in dental implants will receive a free CT scan. These scans are used to accurately determine where a dental implant can be placed. In addition, they can help distinguish if a bone or gum graft is needed to improve the condition of your jawbone prior to implant surgery.
