Our Implant Solutions
Dental implants are a permanent solution for your missing teeth. They’re the only tooth replacement system that protects your oral health while enhancing your appearance. Whether you’re missing one tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth, Dr. Klym will find the right treatment to restore your smile.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is comprised of three parts. The implant fixture is a titanium post that’s placed directly in your jawbone. After the post has had time to properly integrate with your bone tissue (in a process known as osseointegration), we’ll attach a small connecting piece called the abutment and then top your implant with a beautiful porcelain crown.
What is the Dental Implant Process?
The dental implant process starts with your free consultation with Dr. Klym. You’ll be provided with a complete dental exam and Dr. Klym will ask you some questions so we can learn about your treatment goals. That way, he can design a treatment plan to meet your needs.
Step 2–Preliminary Treatments (If Necessary)
In some cases, Dr. Klym recommends one or more supplemental treatments such as bone grafting or treatment for gum disease to help the patient prepare for the implant process. As soon as your supplemental care is complete, we can begin the implant process.
Step 3–Placing Your Crown
After your initial surgery, it will take about 3 to 6 months for your jawbone to integrate with the implant fixture. As soon as you’re ready, you’ll return to our office so Dr. Klym can attach your permanent restoration.
Porcelain is an outstanding choice for dental restorations because it’s white, durable, and it reacts to light the same way your natural teeth do. You’ll leave our office ready to face the world with a fully restored smile.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
No other restoration offers the benefits you get with dental implants. The best way to find out if they’re right for you is to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Klym today. He’ll make sure you get the right treatment for your smile.
Conditions such as jawbone deterioration and gum disease will interfere with the dental implant process unless they’re effectively treated. That’s why we feature supplemental procedures including bone grafting and soft tissue augmentation to prepare your smile for dental implants.
