Implant dentistry can improve your quality of life and give you back a healthy smile after you have lost teeth. Galliani, Mulvaney and Associates has an in-house periodontist and oral surgeon who can perform your implant placement and help you regain a confident smile. We offer a number of implant services, including:
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that work to replace both the root and crown of your tooth. They are designed to look, feel and function just like your original teeth to provide you with a long-lasting solution for your smile.
Implants consist of two parts: an implant post and an implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root to anchor your tooth to your jawbone and provide a stable foundation for the tooth. The implant restoration replaces the crown of the tooth or teeth. Depending on the number of teeth you are replacing, your implant restoration may be a crown, bridge or denture.
Implant treatments begin with an implant placement surgery, during which the implant post is placed into your jawbone. A period of healing follows during which the post integrates with your jawbone. After this healing period, the implant restoration can be created and placed.
Implants are designed to permanently replace your teeth and as such require the same care as your natural teeth — daily brushing and flossing as well as preventive care from our dentists.
Anyone who has lost one or more teeth is a candidate for implant dentistry. You will probably be able to receive implants without difficulty if your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have a pre-existing condition such as tooth decay or gum disease, you will need to receive treatment for that condition prior to receiving a dental implant. You may also require bone grafting before you can receive an implant.
