How Implants Work and What We Offer
Dr. John M. Gowey collaborates with a trusted local surgeon and periodontist who ultimately place your dental implants. After fully examining your dental anatomy with a cone beam CT scanner, Dr. Gowey can determine if you a viable candidate for implant placement based on certain conditions; your smile must be free of gum disease and your jawbone needs to be dense enough to support the titanium posts.
After the dental implants placement process, patients typically need a few months to recover, during which time implants will integrate with surrounding bone. In the meantime, you will be provided with temporary restorations that allow you to enjoy meals.
Your Restoration Options
Once your implants have become stable, Dr. Gowey has you return to the office to complete the restoration process. Our restorations are crafted with zirconia at a trusted local lab. This material resembles natural enamel and is both durable and highly stain-resistant. Depending on the number of missing teeth, your options for teeth replacement include:
- Single Crowns
While zirconia is beautiful on its own, we are able to customize the shade of your restorations so your smile is seamless.
Why You Should Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Many patients assume that once they lose teeth, traditional dentures are the go-to measure that will allow them to continue eating and enjoy the appearance of healthy teeth. However, dental implants preserve patients’ smiles and allow them to continue normal daily life, without having to worry about loose prosthetics or bone loss. By replacing the missing roots with titanium posts, implants prevent common health issues associated with loss of dental function, while creating a youthful appearance. Dental implants and their restorations have improved the lives of many patients.
