The dental clinicians at Dr. Gregg Ueckert’s office are well known for their ability and knowledge in dealing with dental implants. They understand that dental implants can be done in a variety of different ways, and seeks to match the correct technique with the individual patient’s needs.
Dental Implants: Advantages
- Visible defect of gums and bone due to recession around bridge or denture.
- Resorbed bone causing a collapsed smile.
- Bacteria development and tooth decay
- Shifting of removable partial dentures can reduce ability to eat certain foods.
Dental implants have the look and feel of natural teeth. They not only enhance your appearance, they also give you greater confidence. You can eat what you like, speak more easily and clearly, and be free of potential embarrassment. By following a regular routine of oral hygiene and checkups, dental implants can provide a long term solution to improve dental health.
Endosteal implants placed directly into the jaw bone are used by Dr. Ueckert in the osseo-integration process. Titanium is fused into the bone leaving pores which osteoblasts and connective tissue can migrate. Osteoblasts are bone building cells, and as growth occurs they integrate into the rugged surface of the implanted titanium creating direct contact between the bone and implant.
