815 Dental Studio
Dental implants have become the new gold standard for restoring teeth once a tooth is removed. They are secured in place with tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed in your jawbone. The artificial crown tooth is attached to this post with the help of an abutment or an extension that reaches the gum surface. Dental implants not only restore your natural smile but also allow you to bite and chew completely normally. The tiny post acts as an artificial root, which helps preserve the integrity of your jawbone density and keeps it from atrophying. This also helps maintain the structure of your face.
Dr. Anthony and the hand-selected team at 815 Dental Studio concentrate on bringing bright and beautiful smiles to every family we get the opportunity to work with. We deliver quality general family dental and cosmetic procedures services. We can manage your entire family’s dental needs.

Studies prove that over fifty million Americans experience tooth-loss every year. Traditional dentures have long been the restoration solution, but recent technological innovations have introduced dental implants into a variety of creative options.
The Increasing Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer outstanding benefits for you, including the following:
- Improved appearance- Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. The titanium post is designed to fuse with the jawbone, creating natural stability.
- Improved comfort- Since they function as a replacement tooth root, dental implants are permanent and eliminate the need for a removable appliance.
- Durability- Dental implants are extraordinarily durable and will last decades with proper care. Once an implant is placed, with proper care, most will last a lifetime.
- Normal eating- Loose dentures make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods with confidence.
- Improved speech- With traditional dentures, the appliance can slip, resulting in you mumbling or slurring your words. Dental implants eliminate this worry.
- Improved oral health- Dental implants have improved numerous patient’s abilities and the likelihood to brush and floss normally, which improves overall oral health.
- Convenience- Traditional dentures are inconvenient. Dental implants eliminate the inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as any dental adhesives.
- Structural Integrity- By filling gaps, dental implants preserve the original jawbone density and will also reduce the likelihood of infections.
- Improved self-esteem and self-confidence- By restoring your healthy smile, dental implants help you feel naturally better about yourself.
The Dental Implant Procedure
The placement of a dental implant can take several visits and several months to complete.
Your initial evaluation starts the process. 815 Dental Studio will begin with x-rays to confirm the density of your jawbone to clarify that it can successfully support the dental implant. If this area of your jawbone has atrophied, a bone grafting treatment might be necessary to initiate the process. A decayed or damaged tooth will be extracted as well.
Once these preparatory steps are completed, we will begin the actual dental implant treatment by administering a local anesthetic to the immediate area. When the soft tissue is adequately numb, we will create a small incision to gain access to your jawbone. We gently place the titanium post into your jawbone and close the incision.
The next stage requires patience. It takes a few months for the post to grow, fuse, or integrate into the jawbone. This step is crucial because this is how stability and strength is achieved. Next, we add an abutment or extension to reach the surface of your gum line. Finally, we secure an artificial crown on the abutment, and your dental implant is completed and permanent.
Dental Implants Vs. Dental Bridges
If you are contemplating a dental implant restoration, you might also be considering a dental bridge. The dental bridge must use the two adjacent teeth for support by using either crowns or metal wings over these adjoining healthy teeth to support the false tooth and fill the gap. There are distinct types of dental bridges for different situations. The obvious benefit of a dental bridge is it is less invasive. They are also faster and less costly. Review your options with your team at 815 Dental Studio to determine the best solution for you.

Proper Care of Your Dental Implant
Your at-home oral hygiene will be a significant factor in ensuring the life expectancy. A dental implant needs to be treated like a natural tooth and should be brushed and flossed daily. This will also maintain the health of your gums, and your natural teeth as well.
Even though your new dental implant will become strong and stable with time, a healing process is necessary after the implant has been surgically placed. For a few weeks, a diet of soft food will be recommended, slowly introducing harder foods. Your jawbone will acclimate to the new pressures being applied.
A dental implant is a fantastic, long-term solution for a tooth restoration. If you need a tooth extracted and must fill the gap, speak with 815 Dental Studio about the benefits of a dental implant for you.
