Over the course of the last two decades dental implant technology has advanced and grown in popularity. It is now seen as one of the most effective methods for restoring a missing tooth. They can also be used to create anchor points for a dental implant supported bridge to restore multiple missing teeth.
The dental restoration starts with a minimally invasive outpatient oral surgery where Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner inserts a small titanium dental implant directly into the living bone tissues beneath the void. This will require full sedation, so you will need to arrange to have someone drive you home.
Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner will also provide you with a prescription for any necessary anti-inflammatory or pain medications, to help you remain comfortable while your gums heal.
The natural process of osseointegration will gradually allow the titanium material to fuse with the bone tissues. This will fully replicate the root of the original tooth.
Once this has been achieved, Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner can start process of preparing an abutment. This small post shaped structure will then serve to anchor a dental crown or serve as one of the anchor points for a dental implant supported bridge.
