Dental Implants Can Save Your Natural Teeth in Middletown IN

Dental implants are considered the strongest, most reliable alternative to natural teeth. If cared for properly, they can last a lifetime, functioning like a natural tooth and offering critical support to your jaw and surrounding teeth. Patients with damaged or missing teeth living in the Middletown, IN area will get information, guidance, and expert care from Dr. Jonathan Titus, a board-certified dentist specializing in the placement of dental implants.

What to Expect from Implants

Implants share the same powerful foundation as your natural teeth: your jawbone. If implants are right for you, Dr. Titus will begin with a thorough examination of the missing or damaged tooth. Using x-rays and 3D digital imaging, he will map out the affected area, noting any abnormalities or possible complications. After that, the installation of the implant occurs in two stages. At for your first appointment, your gums will be numbed with an anesthetic, and a small incision will be made. Dr. Titus will use that incision to make a small hole in your jaw. He will then insert a small, biocompatible titanium rod into that hole. He will prep the area and cover it with a temporary crown. Over several weeks, the titanium rod will be naturally incorporated into your jaw, providing your implant with the same powerful foundation as your natural teeth. Once the rod is in place and the incision has healed, Dr. Titus will take an impression of the area. The impression is then sent to the lab, and your final crown is fabricated from tooth-color materials. You will return to Dr. Titus one final time, for the installation of your crown. This crown can last for many years, if cared for as you care for your natural teeth, with routine brushing, flossing, and cleanings with Dr. Titus.

If you are living with damaged or missing teeth, dental implants might be the solution you are looking for. They will restore your smile, and protect your remaining teeth from wandering, which can lead to further complications including the loss of additional teeth.

Dr. Titus can talk you through the process of implants, and help you determine if they are right for you. Call for a consultation today at (765) 358-5868.
