Utilizing dental implants to restore missing teeth in the smile
Dental implants continue to be a popular choice for patients who need dental restoration. One or more teeth in the smile can be replaced using these titanium posts that function like natural tooth roots. Dr. Sima Chegini of Fairlawn, Ohio, is a dedicated dentist at Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. She can walk patients through the benefits of dental implants and whether or not an individual is a proper candidate.
What are dental implants?
Dr. Sima Chegini describes the dental implant as a titanium post inserted into the jaw to restore the feel and function of the natural teeth. Doing so replaces one or more teeth that are missing while maintaining the jaw’s bone structure. These implants fuse with the bone to provide a proper foundation for crowns, bridges, or full dentures.

If you want to replace missing teeth with dental implants, you need to consult with an implant dentist in Fairlawn first to determine if you are a good fit for this or other types of restorations. During a consultation and initial evaluation with our team, patients will undergo a series of diagnostic images, amongst which the CBCT 3D image is the best and most accurate scan for safe and accurate placement of implants. Most dental offices do not have this technology available. However at Arsmiles, we are pioneers to provide the latest in technology to better diagnose and treat out patients That allows our dentist the opportunity to determine if the patient has enough bone structure to support a dental implant successfully. Without enough bone, bone grafting may be considered to rebuild the area and prepare for the placement of an implant in the future. If patients are not good candidates for dental implants, bridges, dentures, other alternatives might be recommended.
