Dr. Rodney Raanan is an expert in Aesthetic Implant Dentistry he provide Dental Implants for a secure, long term fixed alternative to removable dentures, whether partial or complete. When you are faced with the misfortune of needing to replace missing or badly damaged teeth, dental implants offer a superior option, since they provide exceptional support and stability for dental appliances.
Dental Implants (usually made of titanium) serve as artificial roots. Implants are surgically placed directly into the jaw bone of the upper or lower gums. When teeth are attached to implants, they look very natural, and are securely anchored to the bone. Dental implants make it possible to securely restore or enhance the patient’s smile.
In most cases, Dental Implants offer the strongest, most stable, and most durable option. With reasonable care, they will last for many years. Dr. Raanan recommends regular dental checkups, as on occasion, some implants may have to be adjusted, tightened or replaced. With regular professional care, such problems are rare and can usually be readily remedied.
Reasons to choose dental implants:
- Implants make it feasible to replace one or more missing teeth without alteration of or damage to adjacent teeth.
- Implants make it possible to resolve bite problems and resultant joint pain, and prevent teeth from shifting into the space left by missing teeth.
- Implants make it possible for your dentist to restore your confident smile.
- Implants stabilize teeth, thereby restoring speech and enabling you to chew food properly — which aids digestion.
- Implants provide stability of gum & jaw structures, thereby Implant Dentistry enhancing facial appearance.
What is involved in the dental implant process?
The dental implant process requires multiple visits over a period of several months. In the first visit, Dr. Raanan will take a , a series of other , and make impressions (molds) of the jaw and teeth. This Implant Dentistry process enables Dr. Raanan to evaluate bone and gum tissue, and to determine the proper spacing for the implants.
To ensure that your mouth is completely stable and you have a beautiful smile, Dr. Raanan partners with an experienced, skilled, local Periodontist, who places the dental implant into the jawbone. Before further work is done, the jawbone will be allowed to heal for up to six months. This process allows the implant to be fully integrated into the bone. Some types of implants require a second surgery to place the “post” on which the artificial tooth is secured. Another type of implant uses a post and anchor, which are already integrated. This type of implant is placed during a single surgery.
When the bone has healed and the implant is securely integrated, custom-made Dental implant Crowns are designed at our state-of-the-art dental lab to provide a foundation for replacement teeth. When the artificial teeth have been securely attached to implanted anchors, they offer superior stability and comfort to the patient, rivaling that of natural teeth.
When your implant procedure has been completed, Dr. Raanan will give you detailed instructions for proper care of your new teeth. As with natural teeth, proper eating habits, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits are important to maintain the life and health of your dental implants.
