Dental implants are a modern and effective way to replace missing teeth and restore the function and beauty of your mouth. Dental implants are comprised of two parts: a titanium screw that replaces the root of the tooth and an implant restoration (usually a crown, bridge, or denture) that replaces the visible portion of the tooth. Dental implants, when placed, can effectively restore stability, strength, support, and resilience to the jaw and mouth. At our Kailua, HI dental practice, we use Nobel Biocare implants for optimal results.
Dental implants are placed over several visits to our office during the course of six to eight months. First the titanium implant post and anchor are surgically placed in either the lower or upper jawbone. Over the next several months, the bone will fuse with the titanium implant in order to restore security and stability. After the implant has fused with the jawbone and your mouth has
healed, your implant restoration will be placed on top of the post and anchor for optimal cosmetic and functional results. The implants are placed surgically to the upper and lower jawbone of your teeth. When complete, your dental implant will look and feel like a natural part of your smile.
Dr. Dang may recommend dental implants for one or more of the following reasons:
- To replace one or more missing teeth
- To ease and solve bite problems or joint pain caused by shifting teeth
- To restore your chewing, speech, and digestive functions
- To prevent loss of facial volume
- To lend support to a bridge or denture
- To enhance the natural beauty of your smile
