When properly placed, dental implants offer unparalleled support for dental restorations, making them an
optimal choice for many patients. Due to their integration with the jawbone, though, the placement of implants
requires extensive knowledge and planning on the part of the surgeon. At our Orange City office, we pride
ourselves on our specialized knowledge of dental implant surgery, giving our patients the sort of care and
expertise needed for an effective procedure and recovery. If you plan on receiving implants in the near future,
take a moment to learn how the placement of implants is determined and implemented.
The Importance of Proper Placement
Dental implants require even more planning and precision than most other types of oral surgery. This is because
implants require a months-long process of osseointegration, or natural integration with surrounding bone tissue.
For this reason, the right type and length of implant must be chosen to properly fit within the mouth, and it must
be installed at a precise location and angle so as to properly replicate the natural position of a tooth’s roots. Our
experienced and skilled surgeons will determine all of this ahead of time through evaluations and X-rays,
ensuring success even before the surgery begins.
When first considering dental implants, patients must undergo an evaluation to determine whether they can
reliably have them installed. During this evaluation, the patient’s gum and jaw health will be assessed first. In
order for the implants to properly heal with nearby soft tissues, a patient must have relatively healthy gums that
are free of disease. The jawbone must also be healthy enough to support implants. In the event of bone loss, we
may recommend a bone graft in order to bulk up the jaw’s structure prior to implant surgery.
If a patient is deemed a good candidate for implants, X-rays will be used to plan the best placement for each
potential implant. These images will help reveal what type, size, and angle of implant will yield the most
successful results and provide the best stability for dental restorations.
Number of Implants
Another consideration when receiving dental implants is the type of restoration to be used in conjunction with
them. For the individual replacement of single teeth, implants will simply act as the roots of each missing tooth
to be crowned. This is generally a good option when replacing one or two teeth, or replacements that are in
different areas of the mouth. For multiple teeth in a single area, however, larger restorations may only need two
implants for support. A dental bridge, for instance, can be supported by one implant at each end, allowing it to
span a larger area while replacing all teeth between the implants. For patients who have a healthy natural tooth
that may be used for support, only one dental implant may be needed for a bridge.
Similarly, entire dentures may be effectively held in place through just a few implants. This solves many of the
problems typically associated with loose dentures, such as instability, discomfort, and speech impediments. If
you are considering dental implants for multiple lost teeth, rest assured that we will suggest an appropriate
number of implants to best support your chosen restoration.
Learn More about the Implant Process
Dental implants require multiple visits and a gradual recovery process in order to ensure long-term success. Of
course, the results offer patients a brand new healthy smile. To learn more about the procedure or your
candidacy for it, contact us to schedule an appointment at our Orange City office.
