Dental Implants in Stow, OH

Implant dentistry has been changing the lives of people all over the world since it was first introduced. Replacement teeth anchored by dental implants are the closest things to real teeth. The implant serves as the artificial root, while the crown, bridge or denture restores the portion that is visible above the gum line.

Because dental implants simulate a tooth from the root up, it is considered the best teeth replacement solution. Dental implants:

• Restore almost 100% of your chewing ability
• Look and function just like the real thing
• Prevent bone deterioration at the implant site
• Are stable and secure (your teeth won’t come off while you speak or eat!)

Your Stow, OH dentist can use dental implants to restore a single lost tooth or all of your teeth. Dental implants can also anchor complete dentures, using only a few implants for each arch.

The Implant Procedure

Conventional dental implant surgery requires several months to complete. Dr. Murphy will evaluate your mouth and jaw thoroughly to determine if you have enough bone to support the implants. If there is enough bone, Dr. Murphy will embed the implants surgically into the bone. A healing period follows.

After the implant has fused successfully with bone, the post (abutment) is attached to the implant. This will hold the replacement teeth. Some types of implants already have the abutment attached. Dr. Murphy will then take impressions to create the replacement teeth. The crown, bridge or denture is then attached to the implant.
