Dental implant restoration replaces your natural tooth roots with small, screw-like posts. Dr. Jablow inserts the posts into your jaw during a brief outpatient procedure.
In the weeks following your implant placement procedure, the posts integrate with your natural bone, providing a base for restorations like crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.
Dental implants are the sturdiest and longest-lasting of all the tooth-replacement options. If you brush your teeth daily and visit Dr. Jablow once every six months, they can even last a lifetime.
Dental implant restoration provides numerous benefits compared to traditional restorations, including:
Dental implant restoration is also convenient. Taking care of your implants doesn’t require any extra effort. Simply brush your teeth and attend your regularly scheduled dental check-ups.
Dental implant restoration takes at least three appointments spaced over the course of weeks or months.
If you’re missing permanent teeth and you have a jaw that can support dental implants, Dr. Jablow administers a local anesthetic and inserts the implants beneath your gums. Following the placement procedure, she provides care instructions.
A few months later, when the implants integrate your natural bone, you return to the office. Dr. Jablow takes impressions of your mouth and sends them to a laboratory that designs and manufactures your dental restorations.
When the lab finishes your restorations, you visit Dr. Jablow for the last time. She once again numbs your mouth with an anesthetic and attaches your restorations to your implants. After restoring your smile, Dr. Jablow polishes your teeth.
To maintain the results of your dental implant restoration, it’s essential to practice good oral hygiene. Dr. Jablow recommends brushing your teeth twice daily and visiting the office at least twice a year for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning.
If you want to reduce the risk of damage to your implants, avoid bad habits like biting your fingernails or opening packaging with your teeth.
