If you are facing the prospect of dental implants, feel confident that Dr. Dias can help you achieve a naturally beautiful smile.
Advances in dentistry and dental technology have enabled dentists to replace missing teeth with more stable, long-lasting results. How? With dental implants. Unlike dentures, this tooth replacement method isn’t removable, therefore implants never move or cause patients discomfort. They also continue to stimulate the jawbone like a natural tooth root, promoting good oral health and preventing bone loss over time.
Before undergoing a dental implant procedure at one of our three offices, it is first important to be aware of the different types of dental implants and how each can benefit you:
Traditional Implants. When traditional or standard implants are placed, they are implanted directly into the jawbone. Patients with thin jawbones may require bone grafting prior to treatment in order to successfully bond the implant. After a healing period of a few weeks to a few months, the implant bonds to the bone. Once bonded, the tooth restoration (crown, bridge, denture) can then be placed, giving patients the look of a naturally growing tooth.
Mini Dental Implants. When compared to traditional implants, the mini dental implant procedure at Dr. Dias' office in East McKeesport, PA is faster, less invasive and provides immediate results. No incisions in the gums are necessary, nor are there any stitches to be removed later. Because of the smaller implant size, bone grafting is rarely needed. The mini implants are placed in the jawbone and fixed with a special attachment that makes it easy to attach any number of tooth restorations.
So, no matter where you might be located in the Greater Pittsburgh area, if you find yourself in need of a replacement for one tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth, there is a dental implant solution waiting for you at at Diamond Denture Center: Thomas A.
