Due to their resemblance to natural teeth, dental implants are a popular alternative for missing teeth. With this treatment, you can transform your smile with replacements that are similar to your teeth. Perio and Implant Center hosts the leading dental implant specialist in Sunnyvale, CA. Contact the experts to understand how you can benefit from implants.
What is a Dental Implant?
These missing teeth replacements are made from titanium posts. The implant gets inserted into your jawbone. At Perio and Implant Center, Dr. Pechak performs the surgical part of your implant treatment. Your general dentist then attaches an abutment to this post, topping it with a dental crown, bridge, or dentures to replace missing teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants appear and feel natural. Unlike full or partial dentures, implants do not slip or slide. After the implant sets on your jawbone, you may even fail to notice its presence. Implants are without the hassle and inconveniences associated with conventional dentures. Other perks of dental implants include:
- It does not affect your eating or speech.
- Has no loss of the jawbone that occur from missing teeth
- Allow easy hygiene since their cleaning is similar to natural teeth.
- A complete smile that is marvelous and improves your self-esteem
Dental implants are one the most effective tooth procedures of our time. At Perio and Implant center, the team examines your dental implant alternatives before settling on the best one for you.
What Happens During Dental Implant Surgery?
Dental implant treatment typically lasts several months. After Dr. Pechak approves that you have healthy gum tissue and sufficient bone to support the implant, he will book you for the initial surgery. He inserts the implant into your jawbone during the surgery, where it acts as an artificial root. It takes the implant 3-4 months to heal, letting the bone fuse around the screw, giving you ultimate stability.
After your jawbone heals, Dr. Pechak confirms your implant’s stability, letting your general dentist attach the abutment to the implant as he places a temporary crown over the abutment. He then sends an impression of your smile to a lab, where a permanent crown that matches your teeth is made. On a later appointment, he seals the permanent crown in position.
What is Teeth-In-An-Hour?
Teeth-In-An-Hour is an innovative procedure that gives you fully functioning teeth on dental implants in about one hour. Using the least invasive way possible, your provider conducts a computer-guided implant surgery to place the metal post in the jawbone. During the same visit, the replacement bridge or crown made before your implant visit is placed on the post. There is no downtime with this treatment since qualified candidates can resume daily activities the following day with gorgeous smiles.
