Restoring Your Dental Implants
Dental implants are a smart solution to help fill gaps and restore tooth functionality. With a 95% success rate, dental implants are reliable and long lasting, but nothing is bulletproof. At Cornerstone Dental Group, Drs. Ron Solomon and Angela Burleson-Ott not only provide their Cincinnati, OH, patients with dental implants, but the dentists also restore the implants if anything goes wrong.
More About Dental Implants
Dental implants are oral appliances that mimic natural teeth in that they replace missing tooth roots and have a restoration, like a crown, that looks like the rest of your teeth.
The implant consists of three parts:
- A biocompatible titanium post that fuses to your jawbone to reinforce teeth.
- A screw that's inserted into the post to connect the post and the dental restoration.
- And finally, the dental restoration may be a bridge or a crown that is fastened to the screw.
How long does the procedure last?
The procedure is simple. Your Cincinnati dentist numbs the surgical area, places the post, and seals the area for three to six months for osseointegration, or for the post and bone to fuse.
After this period is over, Dr. Solomon or Dr. Burleson-Ott will re-open the surgical area, insert the screw and fasten the dental restoration. One of the many advantages of this procedure is, with proper oral care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Who's a good candidate?
If you want dental implants, you need to have a healthy oral regimen, eat healthily, and high bone density.
