There is more than one way to replace missing teeth. While traditional bridges and dentures work for some, they are not always ideal for long-term teeth replacement. Bridges and dentures can do the job of replacing the tooth, but they fail to replace the missing tooth root. Only a dental implant can do both. Implant dentistry can require more upfront time and cost than other methods of restorative dentistry. However, the process brings unrivaled benefits in terms of health and quality of life.

To appreciate implant dentistry, it is important to know the different parts of a dental implant. This gives you an idea of what the process will entail and helps you understand how implants can provide such excellent stability and prevent bone loss. In general, implants can be broken down into three basic parts:

Implant Fixture: The fixture is the screw-like post that acts as your artificial tooth root. It is surgically placed into your jaw bone so that your prosthetic tooth or teeth on top will have a firm and permanent foundation.

Implant Abutment: The abutment is a small attachment piece that sits on top of the gum line. It connects the implanted fixture to your new crown, bridge or denture.

Implant Restoration: The implant restoration is the visible part of your dental implant. Depending on the number of teeth you are replacing, your implant restoration may be a custom crown, bridge or denture. Each of these types of prosthetic teeth can be custom fabricated in a dental lab and secured to one or more implants. This allows your new set of teeth to not only look like real teeth but function and feel natural too.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
