Dental Implants, Dentist, Oral Surgeon, Nashville TNWhat are Dental Implants?

The dental implants themselves are tiny titanium posts which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant which protrudes through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.


The Surgical Procedure

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, dental implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the dental implants are beneath the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time.

After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. Dr. Urbanek will uncover the dental implants and attach small posts which will act as anchors for the artificial teeth. These posts protrude through the gums. These posts are then used as the foundation for crowns, bridges or dentures. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients experience minimal disruption in their daily life.
