What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a great way to permanently replace missing teeth and provide a strong and secure bite. Biocompatible titanium posts are methodically placed into the jaw bone by Dr. Blume to serve as tooth roots. Once the implants have integrated with your jawbone, they provide the foundation for a number of restorations.
Some of the common prosthodontics that dental implants support include:
- Porcelain Crowns – for individual tooth replacement
- Bridges – to support a row of teeth without altering healthy adjacent teeth
- Hybrid Dentures – can permanently replace a full arch of missing teeth
- Overdentures – are retained by dental implants but are removable
What does getting dental implants involve?
Dr. Blume assesses your dental health and jawbone volume to develop an appropriate treatment plan. If your jaw needs strengthening, she can perform a bone graft to prepare it for implantation.
Our Cincinnati dental implant provider offers a choice of sedation options, including oral medication, IV Sedation, and NuCalm®, a safe, effective, and innovative new relaxation technique.
While the area is numb, the implant is surgically placed into and integrates with the bone, becoming part of the jaw. This process takes few months during which time you are typically provided a temporary restoration.
In the case of full arch replacement, we can often provide “teeth in a day,” which fits you with dentures on the same day that the implants are placed.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth, offering stability that’s unmatched by any other dental replacement procedure. If you currently wear dentures and are tired of the embarrassing slippage that can occur while you eat or speak, consider dental implant placement at the Cincinnati practice of Dr. Stacey Blume.
