After treatment, it is easy to forget that you received dental implants from Sunrise Family Dentistry. The feel and natural look easily restores your confidence, giving you a reason to smile. Generally, dental implants are an ideal oral solution for anyone who has lost one or more teeth. The reasons from the loss may vary, but typically include an injury or periodontal disease.
We know that your confidence is affected by the condition of your teeth. Our Roseville staff works diligently with you to ensure your experience is as memorable as your new smile. Your professional and personal life will improve since you no longer have to hide missing teeth.
Types of Implants
You can receive one of two types at our Roseville dental office. The first is endosteal, or in the bone, which is the most common type of dental implant. Endosteal involves surgically placing a blade, screw or cylinder in the jawbone. Patients most suitable for endosteal typically have dentures or bridges.
The second type is subperiosteal, which is on the bone and most appropriate for if you have minimum bone height. People with conventional dentures are also candidates for this procedure. Generally, we install these implants on top of and protrude through the gum to hold the tooth in place.
Either procedure involves connecting gum tissues and bone to secure the teeth. Our dental implant team will work intimately to ensure the procedure works properly. Healthy gum tissues help to guarantee a sufficient amount of bone exists to support the implanted teeth.
Treatment for Dental Implants
You are part of the dental implant team at Sunrise Family Dentistry. The dentist, periodontist, dental implant specialist and support personnel are part of this team. Each takes the time to consult with you from beginning to end. Treatment plans are personalized based on your specific dental needs.
After successfully performing the dental implant procedure, follow-up visits are scheduled at our Roseville office to monitor the implant. We will check your teeth and gums to ensure they remain healthy. Your part on the team is to brush and floss regularly to avoid plaque buildup.
No longer should you feel self-conscious when smiling or talking. Tooth loss can also cause biting irregularities that negatively impact your eating habits. Essentially, dental implants provide both the strength and stability that you need to eat the foods you enjoy most. Now, isn’t that a reason to smile?
