Dental Implants

Dental implants that feel natural and look real

Ask us about dental implants if you have missing teeth, loose-fitting complete dentures, or an uncomfortable bridge. The natural tooth consists of a crown and a root. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root which is inserted directly into the jawbone to replace a lost tooth.

Over a certain period of time, the dental implant bonds with the bone (osseointegration). The bonding of the implant with the bone is a prerequisite for achieving a strong foundation for the artificial crown/implant crown.

After healing, the implant acquires the same function as that of a natural tooth root.

A structure referred to as an abutment is placed onto the dental implant to restore the tooth’s crown. With the aid of the structure, artificial crowns or fixtures can be attached to the implant.

How it Works

At Lakeview Dental, we want you to feel comfortable about any oral procedures you may undergo. To clear any queries about dental implants, learn more about the process below:

  1. Assessment: As your dentist, we will assess your case by examining your mouth, jaw, teeth, and head with X-rays. If it’s determined you require a dental implant, the appropriately sized implant will be chosen for you.
  2. Anesthesia: The site for the dental implant will be anesthetized using local anesthesia.
  3. Insertion: The dental implant will be inserted within your jawbone underneath the gum tissue. Afterward, the gum tissue is stitched back together. As the tissue heals, the implant will integrate with the bone and attach to the gum.

Dental Implant Recommendations

Find out if a dental implant is a correct option for you by speaking to your dentist. You may or may not be a good candidate for the implant; the only way to know for sure is to visit your dentist and discuss.

What to consider before treatment:

  • Your medical history: This includes existing medical conditions and prescriptions.
  • Personalized recovery plan: Most surgeries require a recovery plan, and dental implants are no exception. Speak with your dentist about a personalized plan for recovery considering your lifestyle.
  • Recovery time: After each procedure, some soreness and swelling are to be expected, so you will need some time to rest and heal.

What to consider after treatment:

  • Oral hygiene: Follow all oral hygiene recommendations your dentist provides. Frequent dental cleanings of both the implant and the surrounding teeth are essential for the surgery to be successful.
  • Follow-up visits: Ensure you book regular follow-up visits with your dentist. This active maintenance approach is vital for keeping your oral health in good condition and preventing undetected oral issues from becoming worse.
  • Hygiene concerns: Should any concerns arise with the hygiene of your dental implant, or should have an existing implant with prevalent gum disease that requires treatment, we are well-equipped to help with treatment using LAPIP Treatment, for example.

Clear communication: There are circumstances where the implant may feel tender, sore, or even loose. If such is the case, communicate this to your dentist as soon as possible.

Advantages of dental implants are both aesthetic & functional:

  • Reestablishes function and aesthetics of missing teeth looking and feeling like natural teeth with the same ability to chew food.
  • Prevents bone loss by functionally stimulating the anchoring jaw bone.
  • Bio-compatible with the body – they are made of titanium, a solid material that is well-accepted by our body.
  • Prevents remaining teeth from drifting into the space left by the missing tooth.

Dental Implants

A natural & healthy appearance to your smile.

Mini implants are tiny titanium screws placed directly into your jaw and help hold the dentures securely in place. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a robust and solid foundation that allows your denture to snap on tightly and securely.

If you are experiencing loose, uncomfortable dentures or having trouble eating with your dentures, talk to Dr. Newman to discuss the option of having mini implants placed to secure your denture and improve your comfort.
