Our goal at Pingree Smile Center is to maintain your healthy smile with all of your natural dentition. Unfortunately, sometimes a tooth removal is necessary when we cannot save the tooth. Dr. Jignesh Patel has gone through a rigorous clinical continuing education program for placing and restoring dental implants. If necessary, we will work closely with a gum specialist to restore your implant with the right abutment and the crown to give you natural looking tooth.
Dental implants are the next best thing to replace a missing tooth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw bone to hold a missing tooth. For patients that require removal of all teeth followed by full dentures, dental implants can provide tremendous stability and can help restore adequate function so patients can enjoy foods they like to eat.
Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury or some other reason. However, as with any dental treatment, regular professional maintenance is very important in long term success rate of dental implants.
Dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts and performed over the course of a few months.
- Titanium based implant (tooth root replacement)
- The abutment (connection from jawbone to above gums) that supports the crown is placed
- The porcelain crown is fitted on the abutment for a natural looking tooth
There are certain situations when dental implants are not indicated. Please talk to your Pingree Grove dentist to go over all of your treatment options. We will be more than happy to explain the differences in treatment options so you can make the best choice possible in restoring your mouth to full health.
