Dental implants are a great way for our patients in Canton and surrounding areas to replace missing teeth. These small titanium posts, which fuse directly to the jaw bone, provide the very best support for dental restorations. At Treiber Dental, we will refer you to a trusted area surgeon who can place dental implants, and we will restore them with custom-crafted crowns or dentures. Working with some of the most esteemed oral surgeons in the area, we are able to provide a wide variety of quality dental implants to meet your unique dental health needs.

The Dental Implants Process
Before receiving dental implants, you will need to undergo a thorough screening and evaluation. Dr. Bruce Treiber will examine the overall health of your teeth and gums, as well as your jawbone structure. You will also be able to discuss your expectations and goals for your treatment. Dr. Treiber is committed to providing long-term satisfaction with implants, and will take ample time to plan and to address subtle nuances, ensuring the success of your procedure.
Placing dental implants requires two surgeries. During the first, your oral surgeon will insert the implants into your jawbone. Over the next three to six months, your jaw will become fused to the implant. When this process is complete, your oral surgeon will attach abutment pieces to the posts during a second surgery. Once the gums have healed around the abutment and implant, Dr. Treiber can begin the process of restoring your implant.
Dental Implant Applications
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or an entire smile. In the case of a single missing tooth, the implant is restored with a custom-crafted crown that is permanently attached. Similarly, if you are missing several teeth, resulting in a single gap, a dental bridge can be permanently attached to one or more implants to restore your smile.
If you are in need of a full set of dentures, they can be either removable, or permanently attached to your implants. We offer the all-on-5 and all-on-6 configurations, in which custom dentures are screwed directly onto implants to achieve a permanent fit. Another option involves attaching a horizontal metal bar across the implants, providing a base over which the denture can slide, allowing it to be easily removed and replaced as needed.

If you are missing teeth, dental implants are one of the very best investments you can make in your smile - and your quality of life. Dental implants allow patients to smile, speak, and chew all the foods they love with absolute confidence. Meanwhile, dental implants can actually prevent atrophy of the jaw bone, which occurs in the absence of tooth roots. Dr. Treiber will take ample time to ensure that implants are right for you, and that this treatment provides you with a lifetime of satisfaction. Contact us today to learn more.
