Dr. Bryce B. Heiner can perform your dental implant procedure from our office in Roswell, NM. Dental implants replace damaged or missing teeth with a three-part model. This unique structure of the dental implant makes this treatment the most secure option for tooth replacement. Dental implants are also the closest replacement option to natural teeth, providing long-term results so patients can smile without missing a beat. Our staff takes the time to get to know every patient so that we can provide you with a comfortable experience and answers to all your questions.
What is a dental implant procedure?
In most cases, the dental implant treatment involves just two procedures to place the three parts — the implant post, the abutment, and the crown. During the first procedure, Dr. Heiner will insert a surgical post composed of titanium, which will act as the new tooth root. The post will need several months to heal and fuse with the jaw bone before it can support the other two components.
At your second surgical appointment, Dr. Heiner will attach the abutment to the screw to create the stable connection for the prosthetic. The restoration is complete once the new prosthetic crown has been attached to the abutment. The crown will be custom designed to look just like your other teeth; in fact, most people can’t even tell the difference between their new implant and their natural teeth. In addition, the crown mimics the function of a healthy tooth, which means you can eat all the foods you like without worry.
Do I need dental implants?
Dental implants are one of the most successful and highly recommended options for tooth restoration. Dental implants provide lifelong security for a patient who has missing teeth or teeth that are beyond repair. Dentures can slip and cause discomfort, and they need to be replaced over time, but dental implants are connected to your jaw bones and if properly cared for, do not require replacement. If you have missing teeth or teeth that are too damaged to repair, you may be the perfect candidate for dental implants. In most cases, patients who are healthy enough to undergo extractions are also healthy enough to receive dental implants. When you visit our office for a consultation, we can help determine if you need dental implants.
