Dental Implants Orleans

When a patient is missing one or more teeth, dental implants offer a variety of effective and long-lasting solutions.

The goal of dental implants is to permanently replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) with artificial prosthetic teeth – without involving any natural teeth in the process.

Dental implant treatment consists of two phases: Phase I – Dental Implant Placement, Phase II – Dental Implant Restoration.

About Dental Implants

Dental Implant Placement:

Dental implants are very small titanium components resembling ordinary screws. They are designed to replace dental roots and hold the prosthetic restorations (crowns, bridges or dentures) firmly in place.

After the implants are (surgically) placed in the jaw bone, the bone starts to slowly grow around it as if it were a root (a process called osseointegration). In three to six months this process is completed and the implant is ready to be restored with a prosthesis.

Dental Implant Restoration:

The restoration of implants is relatively simple. Approximately six months after surgery the protective abutment is removed from each implant and a restorative prosthesis is immediately screwed on. A single tooth is replaced by an implant supported crown, several teeth by an implant supported bridge and if all teeth are missing, a fixed implant supported denture is put in place.

Dental implants have now been used for several decades and overall, their performance record is impressive. Their appearance, functionality and durability seem to please both patients and dentists alike.
