Missing a tooth can lead to feelings of embarrassment and even low self-esteem, not to mention health complications such as bone disease or even further tooth loss. Over time your remaining teeth may shift to compensate for the gap, which could lead to an uneven smile. As a solution, Dr. Soni combines his expertise with modern techniques to successfully perform dental implants.
An implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that will act as a foundation for your custom tooth restoration. Before beginning the procedure, Dr. Soni applies a local anesthetic to minimize your discomfort and help you relax. He then uses special technology (CBCT scanner) to plan your procedure. He uses this as a guide as he carefully places your new tooth root into your jawbone.
Once the implant bonds with your jaw, a small connector post, or abutment, is attached. Next, we take an impression of your teeth to create a custom crown to connect to the abutment. We create your crown at our lab, using special materials to replicate your natural tooth’s color and shape. Your custom crown is then attached to your implant for a beautiful result!
With a dental implant restoration, you can smile and chew normally! There is no need for special maintenance or cleansers since your implant functions and looks the same as your natural teeth.
