Dental Implant Restoration

Are you missing one or more teeth?

If so, you know that it’s more difficult to eat your favorite foods, such as meat, bagels, popcorn and raw vegetables. But having missing teeth is not only inconvenient, it can also be embarrassing. Our Santa Fe dental clinic is here to help with dental implant restorations.


Teeth Replacement Boosts Confidence

Have you ever tried not to laugh because you didn’t want others to notice your missing teeth?

Or maybe you try to cover your mouth when you laugh or smile. That’s no way to live. Our dentists, Dr. Devin Giron and Dr. Galen Detrik want to help you laugh and smile with confidence again.

Getting a replacement tooth can do wonders for your self-esteem. Patients at our Santa Fe dental clinic who have gotten dental implants report a boost in confidence that allows them to be more sociable. They make new friends, go out more often and network with colleagues easier.

Dental Implants vs. Dental Bridges

When it comes to replacing teeth, you have options.

One option is a dental bridge, but this option is not as good as a dental implant. That’s because your jaw needs stimulation — either from a tooth or an implant — to remain strong and functional. A bridge sits on the gumline, so it does nothing for jaw health.

Additionally, our dentists have to take away some surface structure of the healthy teeth on either side of your missing tooth in order to place the bridge. That’s why our dental office recommends dental implants.

Getting Ready for Your Dental Implant

Most patients are good candidates for dental implants.

However, if you have had missing teeth for several years or more, you may need some preliminary dental work, including bone grafting. The dentist must ensure that your jaw is strong enough to accept and hold the implant. If the jaw has atrophied (gone away) at all, you may require a bone graft first.

Additionally, if your remaining teeth have drifted into the gap left by your missing tooth, you may need orthodontics such as Invisalign before we can begin the procedure. This will return your natural teeth to their correct positions, and it will make enough room to place the implant.

How Dental Implants Work

To begin the replacement tooth process, the dentist implants a titanium post into your jaw.

This is the anchor for your dental implant. It generally takes several months for your jawbone to fully integrate the post. Once this process is complete, our dentist can attach the abutment and the crown.

Your new dental implant will look just like your other teeth — no one will be able to tell it is an implant. It will be as strong — if not stronger — than your natural teeth, so you can eat anything you want again.
