Dental implants can restore your smile and make you feel like your old self again. When you lose a tooth because of an injury, a cavity that weakened the tooth, or tooth decay, you can have a hard time smiling and laughing, even around people you love. That missing tooth can lead to a medical condition called TMJ, which makes your jaw pop when you chew, causes shooting pain along your jaw, and can even lead to pain in your back, neck, and shoulders. Dr. Tran offers dental implants for patients missing one or more teeth, but we encourage you to learn more about the procedure before you make an appointment.
Before you can get a dental implant, the dentist must first remove your old tooth. During your first implant appointment, the dentist will use a combination of numbing cream and an injection to dull your senses and ensure that you do not experience any pain. If the tooth is already broken into small shards, the dentist will surgically remove all those pieces. For teeth that are stronger and still in one piece, the dentist can usually pull the entire tooth at the same time.
A dental implant is a small metal piece that almost looks like a screw. Once your mouth heals from the extraction, you will come back for the second step in the procedure. Dr. Tran will make a small incision in your gum to expose your jaw bone. Using a special tool, the dentist will make one or more holes in the bone. The metal post of the implant then goes into that hole, which allows the post to sink deep inside the jaw bone. You will need to wait a few weeks for this implant to heal before you can move forward with the procedure.
During your second appointment, Dr. Tran will let you know if you need an abutment. Though not all patients need one, it is fairly common. If you do need one, the dentist can install one in just one appointment. Though you will need to go under anesthesia, you can usually go home or back to work right after the procedure. The dentist will need to make an incision in your gums and attach the abutment to the metal post in your mouth. As your gums heal, the tissue will grow over and around the abutment.
The last step in the process is the attachment of a permanent crown. You'll need to go in for x-rays and let your centennial dentist take an impression of your mouth. This impression is what the lab uses to make a crown that fits your mouth and matches the rest of your teeth. You can also opt for a temporary crown that fits over the tooth before the dentist puts your permanent crown in place. Implants can also support a bridge that the dentist uses to replace multiple missing teeth. Getting one or more dental implants centennial serves as a permanent solution to any missing teeth.

Careful consideration should be made when deciding on which implant system to go for. As the implants are titanium screws placed directly into the jawbone, only the best in terms of dental implant quality, dental surgeon's expertise, and technology should go into the whole process of dental implants placement. The procedure will involve not only a person's tooth (or teeth), but the jaw bone, and the whole face as well so there should be very little to no compromise in terms of the quality of materials used, as well as the whole treatment planning stage.
