Restoring the smile with dental implants and crowns
Whether you need to replace a single tooth or several, dental implants are probably your best solution. Dr. David Seccombe at Courtyard Dentistry collaborates with key oral surgeons to place what is, in effect, a bionic root in your jaw where your natural tooth once resided. The dental implant is made of titanium metal and is biocompatible with the body.
The process of placing dental implants
After the oral surgeon’s precise and sterile placement, we wait awhile. When we get the okay from them, our work begins. This is where high-tech meets our doctor’s artistry. Dr. Seccombe uses 3-D technology of the CEREC system to custom-design a specialized implant crown on the computer, fabricate it onsite, and secure it to your well-anchored implant with just two short visits in the dentist’s chair!
How do I properly care for my dental implant after it has been placed and restored?
Remember, placing an implant after an extraction eliminates the need to make a dental bridge that involves anchoring them to other teeth. Daily cleaning of your implant crown is like cleaning your other teeth—no special tools or dental gymnastics! After your implant has been placed and restored, Dr. Seccombe and his team will educate you on how to keep the area clean and prevent further complications or problems.
How long will my dental implant last?
Our patients who routinely visit our office and take proper care of their smile will often enjoy their dental implants for a lifetime! This makes them a wise investment for patients who have many years of smiles ahead of them!
