If you’re interested in a form of cosmetic dentistry that will last you for many years, dental implants bring you as close to growing new teeth as possible. Cosmetic dentists expertly place the implants in the same bone that once supported your natural teeth. You will finally get the feeling of strong and functioning teeth once again. The dental implants are molded with dentist approved, modern porcelain, which produce the most natural-like result. Patients sometimes forget that they aren't their natural teeth!
Dental implants have grown in popularity from its introduction to modern medicine in the 1950’s and have since been perfected. This type of cosmetic dentistry is why far the more natural looking option as they are used to provide an anchor for artificial tooth replacements. The titanium anchor is drilled into your jaw bone to provide a highly secure fit, so there’s no room for slipping or breaking away. Because of this procedure, the strength of your replacement teeth will be as strong as your natural teeth. Your teeth won’t feel or look out of place or different, they are customized to fit your mouth and smile. Drs. Ritter and Ramsey guarantee your replacement teeth will look identical to your natural neighboring teeth.
Dental implants are an excellent choice for one or more missing teeth. Dentures can also be attached to implants easily. The stability and sense of confidence you develop with implants will leave you pleasantly surprised as these anchored teeth feel natural.
Drs. Ritter and Ramsey call upon the best technology available to help plan your restorative case. A well thought out plan is needed to map out exactly what your needs are and what the doctors can do to help you look and feel your best. Digital x-rays, 3D mapping, models, photographs and case guides prove valuable to every step of the process. Drs. Ritter and Ramsey use highly regarded specialists as needed to bring the components of your case together smoothly. Although they have a string of highly rated professionals on their team, the doctors still serve as the quarterback of the entire game plan. You can
be rest assured that the doctors will be involved in every step of the process needed uniquely for your case. They will ensure your confidence and confirm quality in your procedure.
What Are Dental Implants?
Careful planning followed by implant placement sets a solid foundation for an array of restorative
options. Dental implants are created with an incredibly strong cosmetic dental grade titanium post. Where you wish to replace missing teeth, the titanium posts are drilled into the jawbone to mimic a tooth-like foundation. This may seem intimidating or painful, however, patients typically undergo the process under a local anesthesia and little to no pain is felt.
Dental implants can dramatically change the appearance and functionality of your smile. Any other cosmetic dentistry procedure can feel unnatural and uncomfortable. Many other options need to be replaced fairly quickly, even with pristine care. Dental bridges can cause bone loss or decay as they don’t actually fix the underlying problem. Dentures can cause the same effects, additionally, can be uncomfortable to wear and may need to be replaced often.
Why Dental Implants?
When you’re missing a tooth or even multiple teeth, your confidence level may suffer. It becomes easier for you to hide your smile and you find yourself hardly expressing true happiness through laughter. Don’t let the difference of some teeth be the reason for your unhappiness. Dental implants will not only
fill in the gaps needed in your smile but also skyrocket your confidence to its highest level.
There are many benefits of dental implants. Patients who’ve entered into the world of cosmetic dentistry have reviewed dental implants as their #1 pick for the most natural looking option. Because dental implants are screwed into your jawbone, other people cannot see anything abnormal or "sticking out". This option also gives you the strongest and closest version to your natural teeth, so you can be rest assured there will be no shifting and no difficulty chewing.
Many people don’t know the dangers of missing teeth. Aside from the obvious space in your teeth, missing teeth not only take away from your appearance but they also can make for difficult chewing. Like a domino effect, missing teeth lead to more problems throughout the years, they can lead to bone loss, tooth shifting, jaw problems, and deterioration. These problems will grow larger as years pass if you do not remedy the situation. Dentures that are not anchored by dental implants cannot help jaw deterioration. Dentures actually cause deterioration quickly by allowing your bite to apply pressure to the underlying bone.
Dental implants can prevent these problems from occurring. This type of cosmetic dentistry can even remedy these problems as the titanium post in your jaw gradually fuses with your jaw bone, allowing the bone to stay stronger for longer. This is the only form of cosmetic dentistry that is actually good for your natural teeth and bone structure. Although they may be a little bit more expensive than most other cosmetic dentistry procedures, they last the longest and the quality is incomparable to all others on the market.
What Are Dental Implant Procedures Like?
The process of dental implants typically take two appointments, and an initial consultation as well. After the first consultation, where your case is fully reviewed and a step by step process is communicated, it's time to start the procedure. On the first appointment, titanium posts are drilled into the jaw bone. Once the patient has healed from this procedure, which typically takes 3-4 weeks, the second appointment is made to add the replacement teeth to the posts.
After the healing period, crowns or bridges will be custom-made and attached to the implants with small screws or dental cement. Numerous components help Drs. Ritter & Ramsey deliver the best result when completing the final stage. But it's the customization of your case from initial planning to final placement that makes all the difference. This allows a full range of services to be considered, from the replacement of one tooth to restoration of the entire mouth. Regardless of your situation, there's a solution for you.
After Care of Dental Implants
Although after a procedure like this, you may think you may have to restrict your diet or eating habits to maintain the beauty of your new dental implants, that cannot be further from the truth. It is, however, smart to refrain from chewing on heard substances immediately after the procedure. Be sure to allow yourself to fully heal before taking them out for a spin.
It is always a better idea to start and maintain a healthy diet for your own health and well-being, and yes, a healthy diet means a healthy body which means healthy teeth! However, there are no restrictions in terms of your dental implants, treat them as you would your natural teeth. Be sure to brush and floss twice daily to keep them in impeccable shape and get them to last many years. You should also visit your dentist twice, yearly, for general check-ups and deep cleans.
One of Healthcare's Greatest Values
Even with all the benefits listed above, the cost of dental implant procedures is an important consideration, as there are many options to choose from. When your case brings together the latest imaging, advanced training, and unique material technologies, this service offers one of the best values in modern health care, here at Ritter and Ramsey. Compared to the replacement of other hard structures and joints of the body, most services with dental implants can be done at a small fraction of those costs. Better yet, most patients carry on with normal activities right away and usually enjoy a lifetime of normal chewing, bite stability, and appearance. But we know the cost of dental implants is an important part of creating a complete plan that works for you.
The cost of dental implant services involves several critical factors unique to each patient, we want to be sure every aspect of your procedure is custom made just for you. A fee quoted without careful evaluation doesn't consider what's best for your mouth. And comparisons may not account for the difference in the quality of materials used, along with the training of the doctor performing this highly technical service. Drs. Ritter & Ramsey customize treatment planning after they have spent time analyzing what would be best for each one. Not one case is ever identical and we always ensure your confidence in all aspects and steps of the procedure.
One thing remains absolutely certain; you will get the highest value possible in modern implant dentistry. That means, years of natural function and a smile thats secure and makes you proud to show. Missing teeth not only flaw your smile but can also devastate your jaw bone, don’t allow this situation to go unnoticed and ask how Drs. Ritter and Ramsey can help.
