After confirming that you’re a solid candidate for dental implants, the first major step of the procedure is to insert your tooth’s new ‘root’ (the implant itself) into the jawbone. While countless other dental practices in our area have to refer their patients to separate specialists for this surgical process, we have the experience and the advanced training needed to perform it here in our office. Once the implant is safely seated within the bone, Mother Nature will start to take over. Throughout a process known as osseointegration, your natural oral tissue and bone will gradually surround the biocompatible implant and bond with it. This creates a solid and enduring foundation for the restoration(s) that will be attached over it.
Jawbone deterioration is a serious consequence of natural tooth loss, and one that becomes more and more pronounced over time. As a result, patients who wait to pursue implant replacement may find that their mouth no longer has the healthy bone density needed to support them. As a worthwhile alternative, Dr. Gutierrez can use mini dental implants instead. Mini dental implants are small enough that virtually all patients can receive them successfully, and they can be used to anchor a custom-made denture in place that should serve patients well over the years.
