Dental Implants

Dental implants are a predictable way of replacing teeth that are lost because of trauma, decay, gum disease or in case when teeth are not formed. Dental implants look and feel natural. It is a very well researched approach in dentistry for replacement of missing teeth. Great success of dental implants is proved by over 20 years of research.

Dental implants, which are placed in the jawbone, are small anchors made of a bio-compatible metal called titanium. The anchors begin to fuse with the bone over the course of a few months. After the fusing process, known as osseointegration, a special connector (an abutment post) is inserted into the dental implant to allow for the permanent attachment of the replacement teeth. Dr. Kabak & Dr. Yurchuk will fabricate a crown that looks like your natural tooth and attach it to the abutment.

Reasons for Dental Implants:

  • replace missing teeth
  • eliminate the need for dentures
  • prevent bone loss that occurs after a tooth is lost
  • prevent the shaving down of healthy teeth for a bridge
  • provide patients with the confidence of real teeth
  • allow patients to eat all the foods they enjoy
  • provide anchorage for the better retention of the dentures when all teeth are missing

Are you a candidate for dental implants?

You might be a candidate for dental implants if all of the following apply to you:

  • You are in good general health
  • You have healthy gums
  • You are not suffering from excessive bone loss (certain amount of bone is required for great stability of the dental implant)
  • You are over 18 years old ( growth of the jaws has to be completed)

There are conditions that are reducing the prognosis and level of success of dental implants. Non-control diabetes, conditions associated with the immune-suppression, use of injectable medications for treatment of the low bone density, and smoking are well known to be risk factors for the failure of the implants. It is important that mature age is not a contraindication for the implants.

If you have a missing tooth or teeth and you want to eat, speak, and chew normally, book a consultation with Dr. Kabak & Dr. Yurchuk at Blue Heron Dental Center. Give us a call!

Why choose dental implants?

Dental Implants offer numerous benefits over other treatments for replacing missing teeth. First of all, dental implants are the only treatment that actually arrest bone loss in the jaw that is always happening after the tooth is extracted. A process of bone resorption starts to occur immediately after the tooth is removed. When we place a dental implant the bone actually bonds with the titanium through the process of osseointegration. Once this happens there is no more danger of bone loss or deformation.

Dental implants are also more comfortable than most other treatments for missing teeth. They are definitely more comfortable than dentures, which may slip, click, cause sores, or even fall out if patients aren’t careful. Dentures get more uncomfortable as patients age, because changes in the underlying bone make the dentures stop fitting properly and patients must either get a new set or live with the discomfort. Dental implants, on the other hand, truly are a permanent solution that will always deliver superior comfort and performance.

Another important benefit of dental implants is that they give patients improved self-confidence over other methods of tooth replacement. In a study done on patients who had received dental implants, 80% said that their overall psychological health improved after they received dental implants. This is probably because having dental implants allows patients to more fully enjoy life. With dental implants patients can enjoy all the foods they like and are never worried about their false teeth in social situations. Dental implants offer patients a lifetime of better chewing and more confidence because they function just like real teeth.
