Our experienced team, led by Dr. Joseph Schmidt, is committed to providing personalized care and restoring both the function and aesthetics of your smile.

With our focus on precision and the latest surgical techniques, we ensure that each implant enhances your smile and boosts your confidence.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable tooth replacement. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and, over time, fuse with the bone, creating a stable base for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants are an effective solution for either a single tooth or missing teeth, offering a natural look and feel, improved oral health, and enhanced comfort and confidence. They are a popular choice for those seeking a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing restoration.

Candidates for Dental Implants

Dental implants are suitable for individuals who:

  • Have one or more missing teeth.
  • Possess a fully developed jawbone.
  • Have sufficient bone density to support the implant or are eligible for a bone graft.
  • Have healthy oral tissues.
  • Are free from health conditions that may hinder bone healing.
  • Are non-smokers or willing to quit smoking during the implant process.
  • Are committed to maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

 

For a comprehensive evaluation and to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants, consult with the experts at Masterpiece Smiles.

Types of Dental Implants

  • Endosteal Implants: The most common type, these implants are placed directly into the jawbone and typically shaped like small screws, cylinders, or plates.
  • Subperiosteal Implants: Placed under the gum but on or above the jawbone, these are used for patients with insufficient bone height or who cannot wear conventional dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a range of benefits for individuals with missing teeth:

  • Stable Foundation: They provide a secure base for replacement teeth, enhancing both function and appearance.
  • Long-Term Solution: Implants integrate with the jawbone, offering a permanent solution compared to temporary options.
  • Improved Oral Health: They help maintain the integrity of the jawbone and surrounding teeth.
  • Ease of Care: Post-implant care is straightforward, requiring regular dental visits and good oral hygiene.
  • Aesthetic Enhancement: Dental implants improve the look of your smile and boost confidence.

Dental Implant Procedure

  1. Consultation and Planning: This phase begins with a thorough examination of your dental and overall health, followed by a comprehensive discussion tailored to your specific requirements. Your restorative dentist and surgeon will address all your questions during this time.
  2. Implant Placement: Through the use of surgical advancements, the implant, which serves as a new root for the tooth, is surgically inserted into the jawbone. This typically involves a two-stage process, often lasting between six to eight months.
  3. Restoration: After the implant has integrated with the jawbone, a small connector post, known as an abutment, is attached. This acts as a foundation for your new tooth or teeth.
  4. Post-Implant Care: Consistent dental examinations and follow-up care are essential to ensure the implant remains stable and durable over time.

Advanced Implant Restoration Techniques

In our commitment to offering exceptional dental care, we’ve integrated cutting-edge dental implant technologies into our services. These technologies include single-stage implants and the immediate placement of implants following tooth extraction.

Single-stage implants streamline the entire process into just one surgical step, allowing for quicker recovery. The method of immediately placing implants after extraction reduces the number of visits required and enhances the comfort for our patients.

Achieving this requires a collaborative effort between Dr. Schmidt and a restorative dentist, ensuring a seamless procedure and thorough care for those we serve. Our adoption of sophisticated dental implant techniques underscores our dedication to delivering outstanding service while minimizing interference with our patients’ everyday activities.
