The teeth that are attached to surgical implants are shaded to match. These are designed to be very natural looking and enhance your smile!

Here are some of the major motives for considering dental implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth.
  • Relieve joint pain or bite problems
  • Fill in a gap that is caused by teeth shifting.
  • Reestablish your confident smile.
  • Revitalize your chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support an existing bridge or denture.

The reality of getting dental implants.

dental implantsThe procedure of successful implants requires a few visits over a few months. Dr. Watiker begins with X-Rays and impressions of the jaw and teeth.  This is done to determine the best strategy available for an implant. To relieve pain all of the work will be done while the area is numb.  The dental implant will be positioned into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself into the jaw.  A second surgery may be required to place the post that will hold the new tooth in place. In some cases Dr. Watiker will use an implant were the post and anchor are already attached.  These will be placed at the same time.

After the area is healed, the artificial teeth are precisely constructed and fitted to the anchor. The next step is fine tuning your fitting. After a healing period, the new teeth are securely attached and this provides excellent stability and comfort to the patient.

The last step is care instructions. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in increasing expectancy of the life of your new teeth.
