Replace Lost Teeth with Dental Implants
Dental implants are a simple and effective solution that becomes a permanent part of your beautiful smile.
At Hazzouri Dental, we provide the finest implants for our Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area patients. You can replace a single tooth or use them as an alternative to traditional bridges or dentures. We regularly recommend this solution because the implants are anchored to your jaw – through a process called osseointegration – which means they come closer than any other method of restoration to providing the look, feel, comfort, and function of natural teeth.
Hazzouri Dental can perform every step of the implant procedure in one place. Dr. Hazzouri has been trained to perform the oral surgery required to place the bases, and his experience as a cosmetic dentist means he can create the custom, replacement teeth that look just like your natural set.
Other dentists have to send patients to an oral surgeon before they can begin to craft the crowns. At Hazzouri Dental, we’re able to provide all necessary steps from start to beautiful finish.
The Process – How Dental Implants Work
A dental implant begins with a threaded titanium base placed in the jaw. This will serve as a replacement for the tooth’s root. If a single tooth is being replaced, only a single implant base is required. If we are going to replace multiple teeth, though, will obviously need to use more bases. The number depends on the type and design of the replacement.
In some cases, a single replacement tooth is attached to each base. In other cases, a bridge may be anchored to two or more bases – it all depends on your individual needs and the condition of your jaw bone.
Once the implant is in position, the bone begins to grow around the implant base until it is secure and as strong as a normal root. This is because titanium is a biocompatible material, and through a process called “osseointegration,” the bone actually fuses to the metal.
After this bond is created, we create the tooth replacements and permanently fasten them on an abutment which screws onto the titanium base.
Hazzouri Dental uses only the very highest quality materials in this important, restorative procedure. These implants are totally secure in your mouth, which results in a cosmetic solution that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
It will enhance your smile for years.
