Dental Implants in Toledo, OH
Dr.'s Thomas, Weisenburger and Poole work with select specialists in the area for placement of implants. They then restore each implant using the best of dental laboratories and materials. Select specialists can perform the surgical portion of your treatment, while Dental Group West can create beautiful dental implant restorations – as well as crowns, bridges, and even implant-retained dentures – to then replace your missing teeth and complete your smile. When you’ve experienced tooth loss or have teeth that require extraction, visit Dental Group West to discuss your options for replacement, including dental implants.
Dental implants are titanium screws that are surgically placed into the jaw bone. This replaces the tooth roots that used to hold your missing teeth in place. Other forms of tooth replacement only replace the top part of the tooth (the crown). Because dental implants replace the roots as well, they offer improved stability and durability. They also don’t require us to modify remaining teeth in any way, making dental implants a conservative option. We can analyze your oral health and make sure that you’re a candidate for dental implants. If oral health issues are preventing you from being a candidate, our colleagues can perform bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, or sinus lifts to help you better support dental implants. Almost anyone can be a candidate for dental implants with the right treatment!
Once you’re ready, the dental implants will be surgically implanted. Then, you heal for a period of a few months. During the healing process, the dental implants will actually fuse to the jaw bone, which makes the foundation for your new teeth strong. It also offers support for better jaw bone health. Tooth roots actually stimulate the jaw bone, preventing bone loss. Dental implants do the same!
When healing is complete, the next step is for us to create and place the crown, bridge, or denture atop the dental implant or implants.
