Dental Implant Placement and Restoration

Dental implants are a state-of-the-art approach to replacing missing teeth. The implants are made up of two basic parts. The implant itself is a titanium post that is placed surgically into the gum where your tooth was. As you heal, the post becomes a part of your jaw, a process known as osseointegration.

The part of the implant that everyone sees is the crown that is attached to the implant. This crown is highly realistic, and nobody will know that it isn’t one of your natural teeth. At Ai Family Dental, we are able to both place and restore dental implants, meaning that the entire process can be completed in our office by the dentist you know and trust.

Give us a call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Liao to learn more about this fascinating technique.

Reasons for Implants

✱ Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
✱ Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
✱ Restore a patient’s confident smile.
✱ Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
✱ Restore or enhance facial tissues.
✱ Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.

Caring For Your Dental Implants

It’s extremely important to care for your implants as you would any other teeth. That being said, make sure to follow these steps to ensure your implants last for years to come:

◆ Eat a healthy diet (cut back on sweets and soft drinks)

◆ See your dentist regularly (every 4-6 months) for hygiene appointments

◆ Brush your teeth twice daily for 2 minutes with a soft or electric toothbrush

◆ Floss every day or use a water flosser (Waterpik)

◆ Always clean between the teeth and around the dental implant

Dental Implant FAQ’s

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth. Unlike other methods of teeth replacement, dental implants have a metal post that actually becomes a part of the structure of your jaw. This prevents bone loss, a serious problem when you have missing teeth. You can care for your implants the same way you would for your own teeth, with regular brushing and flossing combined with routine examinations and cleanings with Ai Family Dental.
