Dental implants are titanium screws Dr. Ilyabayev inserts into your empty tooth sockets. After placement, the screws fuse with your upper or lower jaw, providing a base for dental crowns, fixed bridges, or fixed or removable dentures.
Dr. Ilyabayev has over 25 years of experience placing and restoring dental implants. He completed specialty training under the guidance of implant specialist Dr. John Minichetti.
Dental implants offer various advantages, including:
Many people find that dental implants make it easier to speak. Because they attach to metal posts, implant restorations don’t move around or cause slurred speech like traditional dentures.
To get dental implants, you need healthy gums and enough bone to support them. If you don’t, Dr. Ilyabayev recommends a prerequisite procedure, like bone grafting, sinus augmentation, or scaling and root planing.
Bone grafting and sinus augmentation encourage the growth of new, healthy bone tissue. Scaling and root planing remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth and beneath your gums.
At Bayside Dental Arts: Andrey Ilyabayev, DDS, getting dental implants takes several visits.
Dr. Ilyabayev numbs your gums with a local anesthetic and inserts a dental implant into each empty tooth socket. After surgery, your mouth must heal for several months to allow the metal posts to fuse with the bone.
You return to Bayside Dental Arts when your mouth finishes healing. Dr. Ilyabayev takes digital scans with an intraoral camera and sends them to a dental lab. Technicians at the lab use your scans to design and create custom implant restorations.
After the lab completes your implant restorations, you visit Dr. Ilyabayev for the last time. He administers a local anesthetic, attaches the restorations to your dental implants, and checks your bite.
Dental implants last 10-30 years, but you can extend their lifespan with good oral hygiene. Dr. Ilyabayev recommends:
