Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a highly dependable solution for effective tooth replacement. Whether you've lost one tooth or several, implants provide a permanent option that both looks and functions like natural teeth.

Dental Implants in Lincoln, NE

A dental implant serves as an artificial root that provides a foundation for attaching a prosthetic tooth. This versatile solution supports the replacement of one tooth, several teeth, or even extensive prostheses like dentures, tailored to meet each individual’s specific needs and oral condition.

Beyond tooth replacement, implants have the added benefit of stabilizing bone levels, potentially preventing bone loss. This stability contributes to enhanced long-term support, functionality, and appearance. Implants offer a superior alternative to traditional tooth replacement methods, as they eliminate the need for modifying adjacent teeth.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants?

    The initial step involves consulting with the dentist, who will visually examine the area in the mouth where the dental implant is being placed. Following this, the oral surgeon evaluates whether current teeth require extraction and determines the type of bone graft necessary. These preliminary procedures are conducted first, allowing the patient several months to heal and ensuring the presence of adequate and healthy bone at the future implant site.

    Once the assessment is complete, the dental implant is surgically placed into the bone, and a healing cap is positioned over it to initiate the healing phase. Regular regular check-ups are essential to monitor proper healing and prevent infection around the implant site.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    Two widely utilized dental implant options include endosteal implants and all-on-4 implants. Endosteal implants, the most popular choice, consist of a titanium metal rod inserted into the jawbone, paired with a supporting post designed to anchor a dental crown or bridge.

    On the other hand, all-on-4 implants represent a groundbreaking dental implant system where the entire upper or lower denture is supported by just four implants. Each implant is strategically positioned to  ensure stability for the replacement teeth. Using four implants in this system facilitates quicker patient recovery and decreases the risk of complications from potential implant failure.

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Experiencing tooth loss presents numerous challenges, with difficulties in chewing and clear speech being the most apparent. Left untreated, tooth loss can lead to severe complications such as tooth shifts, jawbone deterioration, loss of facial structure, and bite imbalances. These issues arise over time due to the absence of a root system to uphold bone health and alignment. Dental implants offer an artificial root system to maintain stability and preserve the alignment of remaining teeth.

    Not only do dental implants help patients overcome immediate challenges, but they also prevent long-term issues associated with tooth loss. They are the most effective method for addressing tooth loss by providing an artificial root system to support prosthetic teeth, resulting in replacement teeth that feel natural.
