If you think that implant dentistry is right for you, and you are ready to enjoy the full benefits of a tooth implant, we will schedule you for an implant dentistry procedure at our Derry NH office, outside of Manchester NH.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are synthetic tooth roots used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are created with a special titanium alloy that allows them to fuse directly to a patient’s jaw exactly the way their natural tooth root did before it was lost. This titanium rod fuses with your jawbone within 3-6 months. The tooth implant is then topped with a dental crown. The combination of the tooth implant and the dental crown gives you a “new” tooth where a gap was before. Dentists combine dental implants with beautiful, handcrafted porcelain crowns to create meaningful, perfect tooth replacements for patients who have suffered a devastating tooth loss.
Dental Implant Procedure In Derry NH
Our tooth implant procedure is fairly simple:
- First, your dentist will consult with you about your smile goals. Together you will discuss if you are a candidate for implant dentistry, and schedule your appointments.
- At your first implant dentistry appointment, we will place your implant. First we will make sure that the gap where the implant will be placed is completely clear and there is room for the implant. Once the gap is cleaned out, and there is room for the implant, we will place the implant directly into your gum line where you lost your natural tooth.
- After your first appointment at our Derry NH dentist office, your mouth will be given time to heal from the procedure. The healing process can vary from patient to patient, but generally it will take around three to six months. During this healing period, your titanium implant will begin to fuse directly to the bone in a process called ‘osseointegration’. Once the implant has fused with your bone and your gums have healed, you will be ready for the crown.
- At the appointment after your healing period, we will attach an abutment to your dental implant. Once the abutment is attached we will place your beautiful, handcrafted porcelain crown and complete the implant dentistry procedure.
- Once the crown has been placed, you will be able to walk out of our office with a new, full, beautiful smile.
Benefits and Advantages Implant Dentistry at Vanguard Dental Group?
Comfortable | Once a dental implant has been placed and has healed, it feels as comfortable in your mouth as your regular tooth would. You will be able to eat without sensitivity.
Individually Made for Each Patient | Each dental crown we make is crafted specifically to provide the patient with perfect occlusion and a strong, comfortable, bite. Your crown and implant will feel like they’ve been a part of your mouth all along.
Great For Oral Health | Other restorative services for missing teeth replace the outer portion of your tooth, but don’t replace the tooth root. Without a tooth root’s support, your jaw underneath the gap can start to deteriorate. Our tooth implants replace both the outer portion and the tooth root, keeping your jawbone healthy and strong. They can even be used to improve dentures with implant supported dentures.
Appearance Enhancing | When the jawbone underneath lost teeth starts to deteriorate, it can affect the appearance of your face and give your face a more sunken appearance. A tooth implant will keep the bone from deteriorating and keep your face looking younger longer. Our implants can be used in implant-supported dentures to keep a patient’s face healthy.
Confidence Boosting | Patients who lose teeth lose confidence. They smile less often and often feel less happy than they felt before the loss. Tooth implants replace missing teeth with beautiful restorations that look completely natural. The people you meet won’t be able to tell you have a dental implant, and you’ll be able to smile and laugh more freely in social situations again.
Life-changing | Losing a tooth can be completely devastating. For patients who have lost teeth, an implant can restore hope and happiness. Patients who feel comfortable with their teeth smile more often and participate more in social activities. Our implants can raise the quality of our patients lives.
