What Are Dental Implants?

Used with many different restorative solutions, a dental implant post acts as an artificial tooth root made from titanium that is set into your jaw. Titanium is the most biocompatible of all metals and will fuse naturally with the bones in your jaw to create a strong and long-lasting foundation for your new teeth.

Once the implant post is successfully placed, we will affix a natural-looking replacement tooth that will restore the function and health of your bite. Our team will also work with you to pick a replacement that closely matches the color of your existing teeth for aesthetically pleasing results.

What Can Dental Implants Fix?

Our dentists work to find long-term solutions to your oral health issues. Dental implants are a permanent treatment option with many benefits, including:

  • Returning the beauty of your smile
  • Restoring one or more missing teeth
  • Alleviating joint pain and bite issues
  • Fixing chewing and speech problems
  • Supporting a bridge or denture

What Is the Process of Getting a Dental Implant?

We will then take x-rays and make an impression of your smile to ensure you have the proper bone density to support a dental implant. Our team works with excellent dental surgeons for the placement of the implant, and they will also perform bone grafts, sinus lifts, or more complex tooth extractions when needed. Our top priorities are always your comfort and achieving the best results.

Once you have healed, we will place the custom-made restorations atop the implant. The entire process usually takes between eight and twelve weeks, depending on the severity of the issue. We will continually monitor your progress over the next few months to ensure everything heals and functions correctly. Our team also encourages you to reach out to us whenever you have a question or concern. We are here when you need us and work to alleviate any fear or stress you may feel.

What if I Have Gum Disease?

During our assessment of your oral health, we will check for the presence of gum disease. Should there be any problems, we can provide the appropriate treatment before having your implants placed. We work with a highly skilled periodontist to treat your gums and ensure the best results. Once you have been treated, our Hudson dental implant team will reassess your situation and redetermine your eligibility.

Implant-Supported Restorations for a Healthy Smile

We work with specialists who use their expertise to help you achieve the results you are looking for. You can always trust we'll have the solutions needed to remedy your issues.

An implant-supported crown is an excellent solution when you have a single tooth missing. Once your implant post has been placed, our dentist ensures the crown fits properly and feels natural. This will repair bite function and prevent any further bone or tissue loss.

Additional solutions that use dental implants are:

  • Bridges for replacing multiple teeth right next to each other.
  • Dentures when you need an entire arch of teeth replaced.

All of our treatments are designed to fix specific oral health issues. We will only recommend the solution that is best for you and fits your lifestyle needs.
