The process of getting our dental implants in Chatham is a simple and logical one, with each step bringing you closer to a new tooth that looks, feels, and performs much like real ones do. With proper care, you may get a lifetime of use out of your implant, so any effort put in is well worth it. And because here at the practice of Caryn Miller DMD, LLC you are getting the expert care of a periodontal specialist, you can be 100% confident in the results.
The first thing is to come in for an examination, testing, and consultation. Not everyone will be a good candidate for our dental implants in Chatham, though with some help the majority of patients will ultimately qualify. There are three components, which combine to make your new tooth as natural and lifelike as you could hope to expect. The post replaces the root of your original tooth and is usually made of titanium. It is surgically placed in your jaw, after which your bone tissue grows around the post, and within a few months there is a fusion between the post and the bone. During this time, you can be fitted with a temporary denture. The second component is a small healing collar that also doubles as a support piece. And that leads to the final stage, which is the taking of impressions for the crafting of the crown that is the visible and usable tooth. The crown is then cemented to the post and secured with the support piece. You’ll be able to chew and speak without any problem, with no need for messy adhesives or any effect on your other teeth.
