When people have missing teeth or damaged teeth, they will want their dental implant treatments to be personalized to meet their new smile needs and goals. With customized dental implants in Richmond, VA, patients can effectively replace their missing teeth for years to come.
By going to a skilled doctor for their customized dental implant treatment, patients can get the smile of their dreams. During their first appointment for this advanced procedure, the knowledgeable doctor can discuss the patients specific smile goals and take digital X-rays to be used as a foundation for their customized treatment plan and results.
The dental implant post is then strategically placed in the patients jaw where it can fuse with the surrounding jawbone in a natural process called osseointegration. The dental implant post acts like a natural tooth root, preventing the jawbone from deteriorating. Because every patients smile is unique, the placement of the dental implant post will depend on what part of the patients jaw the dental implant will be most stable and secure in.
Once the dental implant post is securely in place, the abutment can be placed on top. The abutment connects the dental implant post to the prosthesis or crown. The final crown or prosthesis that is cemented into place on top of the dental implant, completing the patients new smile, can also be custom made so that it blends in with their natural teeth.
With customized dental implants in Richmond, VA, patients can replace one or more missing or damaged teeth. Once an implant is placed in the jawbone, it does not need to be replaced or removed because it has fused to it. Customized dental implants allow patients to eat the foods they want, talk with ease, and smile with confidence.
