Your smile says a lot about you. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to restore your ability to smile, speak and eat with comfort and confidence, then dental implants may be the answer. Implants can be utilized to replace a single missing tooth, support a bridge or secure a denture. Dental implants are a great choice aesthetically and functionally. Although they can not be utilized 100% of the time, they are the first choice in restoring missing teeth.
Dental implants are metal anchors, usually made of titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Through a process called “osteointegration", the jawbone actually fuses itself to the implant over time, providing a stable anchor point. An artificial tooth, made of porcelain, is then attached to the implant in order to look and function like a natural tooth. Multiple implants can also be used to anchor permanent bridgework or an acrylic denture.
Planning and implementation of implant treatment is critical. Dr. Weller will work with a Periodontist to determine the number of implants needed, the proper type of implant to use, the proper placement position and what type of temporization can be done to facilitate healing. All of these factors have a significant affect on a successful outcome. When the healing stage is complete final restoring of the implants, utilizing the latest advancements in dental implants is done by Dr. Weller. He customizes each case utilizing tooth colored abutment pieces with all porcelain implant crowns which will leave you wondering which tooth you lost. The staff, at Weller Aesthetic & Implant Dental Care, will coordinate your treatment to make sure that at all times you are looking and feeling great, in addition to keeping you well informed as to your next step of treatment.
