Dental Implants in Cincinnati
Dental implants are the preferred, most natural alternative to replace missing teeth. They are designed to look as natural as possible, blending in with your other teeth. Implants are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw to function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. They are made of titanium that is compatible with the human body. Depending on your needs, crowns, bridges, or dentures will be attached to the implant to act as your tooth to replace single, multiple, or all of your missing teeth. Implants look and function just as a natural tooth!
Implants can prevent bone loss, increase chewing efficiency, and restore facial appearance. They also result in improved comfort and functionality. Many patients find dental implants to be an ideal alternative to dentures or bridges.
The Process of Getting Dental Implants is Simple
At Advance Dentistry in Cincinnati, you benefit from having your entire implant procedure completed at one location. Oftentimes, implant treatment is completed by several doctors at different locations. We alleviate that inconvenience for you. We have performed thousands of implant surgeries and have over 30 years of implant experience, ensuring a great result for our patients. Dr. Sayre is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry.
The process begins with an evaluation to ensure that you are a candidate for dental implants. The doctor will examine you and your x-rays. At Advance dentistry, we use three dimensional CT Scans that determine the exact amount of bone available for implants. Most practices do not have these advanced x-rays which eliminate the guess work and make implants a more exact science. The doctor will sit down with you to discuss all of your options and help you determine the option that works best for you. We will then schedule the implant surgery to place each implant. The time of the surgery depends on how many implants you need. A single implant may only take an hour, while multiple implants may take a few hours. We will make sure you are comfortable throughout your procedure using IV sedation. After your implant has healed we will create your new prosthetic teeth. Although the entire process may take a few months to complete, you will have all of the lasting benefits of the dental implants for life.
