Dental Implants

A Modern Solution to an Incomplete Smile

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.

A Foundation for Replacement Teeth

The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

Evaluation for Dental Implants

If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Belk or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist designs the final bridgework or denture, which will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.

After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. The surgeon will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. Dr. Belk can then start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.

I could not ask for a better staff or dentist. They have done nothing but the best for me and I trust them completely. I have severe anxiety with dentist and their offices. Dr. Belk and his staff put me and keep me at ease, I am very comfortable with them and am actually eager to go to their office now. I highly recommend using Dr. Belk and his staff for any procedures.

I have had three visits so far at Belk-Ditcharo and couldn't be more happy with every level of my experience. The minute I pulled into the parking space I was greeted so sweetly by a staff member who happened to be outside and the same spirit of caring and good cheer has characterized all of my experience there, on top of receiving quite thorough and professional treatment for all my dental needs. An excellent and pleasant experience in every way - I highly recommend.

Our entire family has been going to Dr. Belk for the past 3 years. We all like him, and are glad we switched to his practice but my children LOVE him. They are always ready for their next check up, and look forward to seeing Dr. Nic. That's the highest review in my book, the fact my children have no fear of going to the dentist, because the love their doctor. Dr. Belk and his staff always make them feel at ease, they are professional and courteous; most importantly they know you. You are more than just a chart to them. I appreciate that.

If you got to have a root canal, Dr. Belk is your man! As far as root canals go, it was the most bearable one of all! He gets a "A" in my book! Not only for root canals, great for any dental need. The whole staff can't be beat!
