Dental Implants

Middletown, DE,
Dental Implant Dentist

Are you one of the millions of Americans missing one or more teeth due to an accident, decay, or other dental issues? If so, you may have heard of dental implants as a solution. But what exactly are dental implants, and are they a good fit for your needs?

At Dentistry in Middletown, Dr. Jake Uram is here to answer all your questions about dental implants and help you discover if they’re the right choice to improve your oral health.

Dental Implants Defined

A dental implant-supported restoration is a prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. It consists of a small titanium fixture that is embedded into the jawbone and serves as the root of the replacement tooth. Then, a custom-made dental crown, bridge, or denture is attached to the fixture, resulting in a fully functional and natural-looking tooth. Unlike removable full or partial dentures or other temporary solutions, dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution to tooth loss.

Our Process

If you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the next step is to consider the procedure itself. The dental implant process typically involves several appointments over several months.

First, the implant is placed into the jawbone and allowed to heal and fuse with the surrounding bone. Then, a connector piece called an abutment is attached to the implant, the gum tissue is allowed to heal around it, and the crown or bridge is attached to the abutment.

The process may vary slightly depending on your individual needs and timeline. We’re confident you’ll find the time invested well worth it for a permanent solution for tooth replacement.
