Dental Implants Q & A

Why do I need a dental implant?

A dental implant becomes a new tooth. The implant itself serves as a new “root,” while the crown becomes your replacement “tooth.” Together, they help decrease your risk of bone and tissue loss.

An implant also prevents surrounding teeth from shifting, so your natural bite — as well as your smile — don’t change. Because dental implants become permanent fixtures in your mouth, they’re considered the “gold standard” for replacing missing teeth.

What is it like to get a dental implant?

Once you and the team at Coron Dental decide that an implant is right for you, the J. Morita CBCT® digital computer-guided system will be used to place the implant in your jawbone.

It takes time for the implant site to heal — usually four months or more — but once it’s strong enough to support a crown, a permanent crown will be made for you right in the office, with the help of the Sirona® CEREC® Omnicam scanning system.

This state-of-the-art system digitally scans your mouth and helps design your crown along with the Sirona® CEREC® MC XL milling system. This way, you’ll be able to leave the office that day with your permanent crown.

Will I be able to get a dental implant if I am missing a tooth?

As long as you have enough bone and gum tissue to support a dental implant, you may be a good candidate. If you have an extraction, it’s important to schedule your implant procedure as soon as your gums heal. The longer you wait, the more likely you are to lose bone and soft tissues.

The team at Coron Dental can evaluate the strength and density of your bone and gum tissue and tell you right away if you’re going to be able to get a dental implant. If this treatment isn’t a fit for you, you'll likely be recommended a dental bridge instead. Either way, Coron Dental will help you find a solution for a missing tooth.

If you’re missing a tooth or know you’ll need an implant later, book an exam at Coron Dental. Schedule either online or over the phone.
