Dental implants are considered one of the most effective means of replacing natural teeth when they are missing. Implants look, feel, and act like natural teeth and restore your smile beautifully. They also last a lifetime to provide a permanent solution to tooth loss. If you’re considering implants to replace missing teeth and live in Fairlawn, Ohio or its surrounding communities, contact Arsmiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to learn more about our dental implant procedures.
Although the dental implant process is lengthy, it’s still one of the most popular means of replacing missing dentitions. First, a titanium post is embedded into your jaw bone to act as the “root” of your new prosthetic tooth. The titanium post can bond with the bone tissue via a process called osseointegration, by which the support and stability for your new tooth are secured. This process may take anywhere between three to six months to complete. Once the titanium implant has been osseointegrated into your jawbone, it’s ready to be restored with a porcelain crown to replace the lost tooth. This crown is custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth so that it blends in seamlessly with your smile. Upon completing your treatment, the functionality and esthetics of your smile are restored, and you’ll be able to eat, talk, smile, and laugh with confidence and ease.
Dental implants can last a lifetime to meet your restorative dental needs. The titanium post is meant to be permanent, forming a stable, solid foundation for your tooth replacement. This fixture won’t slip or shift over the years as it’s embedded firmly into your jaw bone. Depending on wear and tear, the porcelain crowns that act as your newly restored teeth may need to be replaced after 10-15 years.
Working with a skilled dentist like Dr. Sima F. Chegini increases your chances of having successful implant surgery that endures a lifetime. Dr. Chegini will work with you from start to finish to maximize your treatment.
Dental implants require no extra care other than brushing, flossing, and routine dental cleaning, just like the rest of your teeth. Furthermore, they’re not subject to cavities or dental decay.
Noreen, welcome back!
Thank you so much.
Yeah, this is the end of our long journey. How do you feel?
I feel wonderful. Dr. Chegini and the whole team here has treated me like part of the family. I came in with broken and missing teeth, um very depressed.
And now I can smile …
… and feel beautiful.
You look beautiful. I remember when you walked in you were, like you said, anxious, um and now you’re smiling and … we treat our patients here like … like if you were my family. So, I’m hoping that you felt that way?
Of course, I did. Yeah.
You were so understanding to all my needs and that I really appreciate but I would recommend to anyone who asks …
… to meet at Arsmiles with Dr. Chegini and the whole team.
Thank you! You’ve been great.
