Enhancing Your Smile with Dental Implants

Dental implants consist of artificial titanium tooth roots that are carefully fused to your jawbone. After it’s placed, your implant bonds with the bone. This process creates a stable platform that can support natural-looking prosthetic teeth. Your implant can support a variety of implant-supported restorations, from a full arch of replacement teeth to a solitary implant crown.

What Implant-Supported Restorations Do You Offer?

Our practice offers a range of custom-crafted restorations to suit your unique dental needs. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or need to fill a sizeable gap in your smile, we have an implant-supported restoration for you. We offer:

Implant-Supported CEREC® Crowns: An implant crown smoothly replaces a single missing tooth. Our practice uses a CEREC milling machine to craft your high-quality crown out of a single block of solid porcelain. The crown is precisely sized to replace your missing tooth and matches the color of your healthy teeth as much as possible. The crown is attached to your implant’s post to secure it in place.

Implant-Supported CEREC Bridges: An implant-supported bridge allows us to fix gaps in your smile left by several missing teeth. Your implants support a set of CEREC crowns and prosthetic teeth. Not only does the bridge restore the appearance of your smile, but it has the added benefit of preventing your healthy teeth from shifting out of position over time.

Implant-Retained Dentures: A set of permanent dentures can be secured via your implants to offer you an entire arch of realistic-looking prosthetic teeth. Your implants keep the dentures secure, preventing them from slipping while you talk or eat.

Immediate Dental Implants to Swiftly Rejuvenate Your Smile

When you undergo standard dental implant treatment in Dayton, your implant fuses naturally with your jawbone over several months before you receive your custom restoration. With immediate implants, we place your implant and restoration in the same appointment. This treatment allows you to instantly obtain a comfortable, properly-sized replacement tooth. Immediate implants are particularly beneficial for replacing an extracted tooth or addressing a dental emergency.

To receive an immediate dental implant, it is essential that:

  • You have enough jawbone density
  • Your gums are healthy
  • Existing teeth are in good shape

What is All-on-4?®

Our practice offers All-on-4 treatments, which are a popular alternative to traditional dentures. With All-on-4, you receive a full arch of prosthetic teeth that are supported by four dental implants. Your implants anchor the dentures into place, allowing you to resume your lifestyle without fear of your prosthetic teeth becoming dislodged.

Our Effective Dental Implant Process

Dr. Messiha checks that you are healthy and have sufficient jawbone to undergo the procedure before he plans the dimensions and placement of your implants. We use an i-Cat™ computed tomography (CT) scanner and digital radiography to map out the structure of your mouth in detail.

After thoroughly preparing for your treatment, Dr. Messiha places your implants in one surgical procedure. You’ll receive your restorations up to a couple months later, when your mouth has fully healed from the original surgical procedure. Placing your personalized restorations after your mouth heals enhances the stability and longevity of your implants and prosthetic teeth.

Dental Implants FAQ

Our team is happy to discuss dental implants with you in more detail. We’ve compiled some of the most common questions regarding the treatment in this FAQ section.

Are Dental Implants a Good Choice for Me?

Everyone’s dental situation is unique, and a perfect treatment for one patient may not be ideal for a second patient. We are dedicated to finding you a proper, safe treatment that will rejuvenate your smile and maintain your well-being. Dr. Messiha weighs factors such as overall health, current medications, gum disease, and jawbone structure when considering dental implants.

If you have brittle, thin, deteriorated, or weak jawbone, you may qualify for a bone graft or sinus lift. A bone graft increases the density of your jawbone so it can adequately support a dental implant. A sinus lift is a particular type of bone graft. In this procedure, we reinforce your upper jaw by increasing bone volume between the sinuses and mouth.

When possible, we prefer to keep your natural teeth in place. Doing so preserves the alignment and structure of your teeth. If necessary, we offer efficient extractions of severely decayed, damaged, or infected teeth. Our team discusses the available options for replacing your tooth after the extraction. In general, we recommend dental implants since they mimic the natural structure of a healthy tooth.
