What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an advanced and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. An implant comprises a titanium post surgically inserted into the jawbone, mimicking a natural tooth root. An abutment is attached to this post and a custom-made restoration is secured on top, providing the appearance and function of natural teeth.
This procedure not only restores your confident smile but also maintains your oral health by preventing bone loss that commonly occurs with missing teeth.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to—confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your smile. They are incredibly durable and, with proper care, can last a lifetime. Compared to traditional dentures and bridges, dental implants offer superior longevity and stability.
The Dental Implant Procedure
At Clifton E. Nakatani, DDS, MSD, our dental implant procedure is meticulously planned and executed, providing you with a seamless, comfortable, and worry-free experience. We utilize 3D imaging technology to create a precise treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. The process typically involves several steps spread over a few months, including initial consultation, implant placement, healing period, and finally, placement of the restoration.
Dental Implants & Bone Health
It’s crucial to understand that dental implants do more than just replace missing teeth—they also maintain and stimulate natural bone growth. When a tooth is lost, the empty space in your jawbone can deteriorate due to a lack of stimulation. Over time, this can lead to significant bone loss. However, dental implants provide the necessary stimulation to prevent bone loss and promote bone health.
Dental Implant Aftercare & Maintenance
The maintenance of dental implants is similar to natural teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups. We will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure your implants remain healthy and functional for many years to come.
