Dental Implants


Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like dental bridges because adjacent teeth do not need to be "prepared" to place the new tooth. 


The completed implant process is performed over the course of months. The first part of the process is to insert the implant itself, where a "screw" is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum tissue so that the implant can be placed securely. several implants might be placed at once depending on your treatment plan. After the implants are placed the gums tissues are sutured(stitched close).


The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time your dentist can place temporary crowns so that you can eat, speak and confidently smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once this is placed an impression is taken to help in the fabrication of your permanent restoration. Some of the general dental offices Dr. Hilmi works with have on-site technology that allows the restoration to be created rapidly. After fabrication your crown will be permanently cemented.  After a brief  period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your natural teeth. Dr. Matthew Hilmi and his staff  are available to discuss dental implants as an option in your overall treatment plan.
