What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that Dr. Manning places into your jawbone to hold a replacement dental crown or bridge. Unlike traditional crowns or bridges that require grinding healthy teeth, dental implants are anchored into support surrounding teeth like a real tooth would. Dr. Manning customizes each dental implant to match the surrounding teeth for a beautiful smile.

Dental Implants: The Benefits of a Complete Smile

Dental implants from Dr. Manning and JLM Dental Studios offer many advantages over other tooth replacement options. Some of the many benefits of dental implants include:

  • Looking and feeling like natural teeth
  • Preserving jawbone by replacing tooth roots
  • Only requiring the same care as natural teeth with proper brushing and flossing
  • Restoring the ability to speak and eat comfortably
  • Maintaining facial contours and preventing bone loss

The Dental Implant Process

Dr. Manning takes a careful approach to placing dental implants that integrates into your bone over time:

Consultation Visit: Evaluation and planning using 3D imaging technology

Placement Surgery: Dr. Manning administers local anesthetic, then gently places the implant into the jawbone. Temporary crowns may be inserted.

Healing Period: Osseointegration occurs as the jawbone integrates with the implant over three to six months.

Restoration Visit: Permanent custom crowns, bridges, or dentures are secured onto the implants once fully healed.

Follow-up care and cleanings optimize long-term dental implant success.

Dental Implant Candidacy

Good candidates for dental implants from Dr. Manning have:

  • Healthy gums and adequate bone to anchor the implants
  • Proper space for implant placement
  • Good overall health

If  they have bone loss or limited space between teeth,  can undergo bone grafting or mini-implant placement

Schedule an exam to determine if you qualify for implants.

Dental Implants and Bone Health

Dental implants stimulate and preserve the jawbone by mimicking tooth roots. Traditional dentures and bridges can accelerate bone loss since they lack this stimulation.

By halting bone loss, dental implants prevent changes to facial contours and aid in eating and speaking. Dr. Manning monitors bone health during follow-up exams, adjusting treatment plans accordingly.

Proper oral care and regular dental visits support jawbone stimulation from implants.
