Restoration Procedures – Installing Dental Implants
Spruce Mountain Dentistry Provides Dental Restoration Procedures
Spruce Mountain Dentistry in Livermore Falls, ME offers advanced dental restoration services. We provide patients with dental implants when dentures or partials are not feasible. Taking care of dentures or partials becomes expensive in the long run, and having permanent dental implants eliminates the worry and frustration of having removable teeth.
Dental implants fuse with your natural bone, making them the strongest form of teeth replacement. Implants provide the proper support for your mouth to remain structured and are easier on your surrounding teeth. Unlike bridges, implants have titanium “roots” that fuse to the bone, making them strong and durable. Bridges connect to surrounding teeth and gums by cement, which causes strain on the other teeth, and may require additional service after so many years.

How are Dental Implants Installed?
Cosmetic Dental implants are securely anchored in the jawbone for maximum comfort and durability. The initial step is to take x-rays and create molds of the mouth to distinguish the available space for the implant. After proper numbing, the doctor surgically places the implant into the bone. The healing time for this is approximately six months. After healing, the lab creates your new teeth, and the fitting process begins. This process may take a few months in order to create the perfect fit. After this healing period, Dr. Kay secures the teeth to the implant, and your mouth will return back to normal.
How do I Care for My Implants?
Spruce Mountain Dentistry will provide you with complete care instructions to keep your implants clean and secure. Proper hygiene is still crucial, because bacteria still affects the implants. You still need to practice proper brushing, flossing, and rinsing, as well as regular visits to the dentist. Implants may seem like more upkeep than dentures or partials, but the results are worth every visit.
