Dental Implant Placement
The first step in providing dental implants is to surgically place the implant post into the jaw bone. Made of titanium, the implant post fuses to the bone to serve as a prosthetic tooth root. Replacing the root and cusp of a tooth is what makes dental implants one of the more resilient tooth replacement options.
Our Sebring dentist can place the implant post effectively. Dr. Dillon has advanced training in implant placement with Straumann Practical, Gordon Christensen, and other organizations involved in dental implantology. He began placing implants over 20 years ago and has continued to provide successful treatment since. Through proper training, significant experience, and careful use of our imaging technology, he can pre-plan and perform your dental implant placement. The procedure itself is quick and comfortable, and several of our patients report never feeling discomfort during or after the procedure.
Dental Implant Restoration
After a healing period that allows the implant post to fuse with the jaw, the next step is adding the dental implant restoration, as well as the connective abutment that secures the restoration to the post. The implant restoration is the functional, visible portion of the new tooth. Its resilience and beauty need to be of a high enough quality that the dental implant feels as natural to your smile as your original teeth.
In order to create a restoration with the right esthetic and durable qualities, Dr. Dillon partners with Glidewell Labs for fabrication. They can craft dentures, crowns, and bridges to secure to your implant posts, all based on the number of implants placed and the number of teeth that require replacement. When crafting crowns and bridges, Glidewell uses one cast of zirconia to mill the prosthetic. Not only is the material itself highly durable and able to blend into the appearance of the smile, but the fabrication method also increases the resilience of the restoration.
