Dental Implants in Merrillville, IN

Also Serving the Crown Point, IN, Area

implantsDental implants are titanium posts fused to the jawbone to create artificial roots, which are then covered with replacement teeth, or crowns, to recreate the appearance and function of natural teeth.

Receiving dental implants requires a full mouth and medical history evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate for the surgery. Once that is established, the dental team will create an individualized plan which outlines your specific needs. Your dentist will take impressions of your existing teeth and bite to create a model upon which to create your replacement teeth.

The creation of dental implants is a two-step process. Dental implant surgery is usually performed in-office, by an oral surgeon, under local anesthesia.

During the first procedure, a dental surgeon will set titanium screws into the bone socket of a missing tooth. Once the screws have bonded to your jawbone – a healing process which usually takes six to twelve weeks – the second step is completed. Posts are bonded to the screws, providing a strong foundation for your dentist to attach your replacement teeth.

Your crowns will match your existing teeth and replicate your natural bite, functioning just as natural teeth would. They can be more convenient, practical, and longer-lasting than dentures or bridges. They improve your appearance and overall oral health, as well as make eating and speaking easier.

Dental implants require the same oral hygiene as natural teeth: regular brushing and flossing, as well as regular check-ups with your dentist.
