Bite into the food you crave and enjoy. With dental implants, the function of your bite is fully restored, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without worry.
Dental Implants are surgically implanted into your jaw to create an artificial tooth root. This provides a stable, lifelong foundation for your restoration so you can enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come.
One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that they preserve your jawbone. This rejuvenates your youthful appearance and keeps your bite functional.
The Dental Implant Process
You’ll get started with a consultation with Springfield dentist Dr. Cline where we’ll provide a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums, and overall oral health to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. This is your chance to ask any questions or raise any concerns so you can go into the process with peace of mind. This is a no-judgment office, so we’ll do everything we can to ensure you feel great about your decision.
Next phase is placement. After coming to our office, we’ll numb your mouth so you won’t feel a thing. We also provide sedation if you feel anxious. Next, we’ll make a small incision into your jawbone and insert the biocompatible screw that serves as your artificial tooth root. Then comes the healing period, also known as osseointegration. This is the phase where your implant merges with your jawbone, setting a strong foundation for the restoration. The process typically takes 6-9 months before we place your new tooth.
After the healing period, you’ll come back to our office for placement. After attaching an abutment, an attachment place for the screw to connect to the restoration, we’ll carefully place your new tooth onto the abutment and cement it with a strong dental adhesive. Congratulations! You will walk out of our office with a beautiful smile and restored confidence.
