Permanent Teeth on Madison Ave
Madison Ave Permanent Teeth
For those people who are suffering from a missing tooth or several missing teeth the advent of dental implants has seen a revolution in the way replacement teeth are done. Instead of using a surface attached bridge or denture, implants permanently affix the replacement tooth directly into the jawbone for the strongest and most secure hold possible. These permanent teeth on Madison Ave are available at our Contemporary Dental Implant Centre practice where our doctors use the latest implant techniques to help our patients enjoy eating and smiling again.
The permanent teeth on Madison Ave implant procedure begins with an examination of the patient’s mouth including a digital radiograph examination so our doctor can pinpoint the exact spot for the implant and see if there is enough bone material at the site to support the implant. Our doctor may supplement the actual bone available with a bone graft to support the implant. The patient’s gum will be opened and our doctor will implant a titanium anchor directly into the bone. Over the course of the next four to six months the anchor will bond with the bone essentially becoming a part of it. Once the anchor and bone have bonded the a second surgery takes place where a healing collar is placed on the anchor and then the doctor takes impressions and begins making a crown. Our doctor will replace the healing collar with a post or abutment, which will hold the crown.
The crown is the final portion of the replacement tooth, forming its chewing surfaces. The replacement teeth look; feel and function just like permanent teeth on Madison Ave. Aside from an individual replacement tooth our doctor can use implants to secure bridges and dentures to replace several or a whole jaw of teeth.
