How Do Dental Implants Replace Missing Teeth?
The base of a dental implant is a titanium post that is implanted into the jaw. Positioning is critical in order to maximize bone density. To increase the likelihood of successful implantation, Dr. Darryl Burke uses the Vatech PaX-i3D Green CBCT. This cone beam imaging system creates quick 3D digital scans, allowing Dr. Darryl to get a comprehensive view of your teeth, bone, sinus cavities, and nerves. The planning process to replace missing teeth is more precise and results are more predictable with this innovative equipment.
Once your implants are placed, they will integrate with the existing bone to provide you with a secure tooth restoration. A custom shaped and tinted dental crown is attached to the post, using an abutment to ensure that the crown looks as if it rises up from the gum line. In cases of multiple missing teeth, implant bridges or implant supported dentures can attach to dental implants placed strategically within the jaw, restoring function to a healthy smile. Dr. Darryl delivers natural looking results. Your implants are durable and with proper care, can last a lifetime.
