Dental implants are the modern method for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants solve many problems associated with removable dentures.
While conventional dentistry enables some people to wear dentures comfortably,
research has shown 85% of the estimated 32 million people with dentures in this country experience some discomfort and difficulty due to their false teeth.
Dental implants eliminate the discomfort and embarrassment often associated with dentures.
Where some teeth are missing, dental implants may be used to eliminate the need for a removable Partial denture by providing the support necessary for attachment of a fixed bridge.
Patients with implants have reported their confidence has been restored and their quality of life improved.
Dental implants help prevent the premature loss of remaining teeth and are a good investment in oral health.
The Core-Vent System of Dental Implants is the most widely used implant system in the world. Core-Vent
It includes five different implant designs to meet the needs of the largest number of patients.
Your dentist will decide whether a single design or combination of implants is necessary for your individual case.
Core-Vent Implants, made from biocompatible materials, can become directly attached to the jaw-bone. In dental terms this is called "osseointegration."
The implant then performs a function similar to natural tooth roots.
The implant is able to withstand biting forces similar to a healthy natural tooth.
What procedures are used to insert Core-Vent Implants?
The insert of Core-Vent Implant is designed to be submerged under the gum tissue, allowing time for the implant to attach directly to the bone.
After a healing period of three to six months, a brief second procedure is needed to expose the top of the implant.
An appropriate post is then attached to the implant to support a bridge or denture.
