Implants

Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.

Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.

Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.

    Our family has been going to Giebenhain Dental for the past 25 years. The entire staff at Giebenhain Dental is extremely friendly and professional and they sure make you feel at home. Dr. Giebenhain is very knowledgeable and detail oriented. The office is very nice and comfortable and the view from the dental chair is very peaceful. I’ve had the opportunity of having both hygienists clean my teeth and they understand my sensitivity in a couple of areas and are very careful not to make me flinch. If you are looking for a dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Giebenhain and his wonderful staff.

    My husband and I have been long-time patients and continue to love Giebenhain Dental even though we could go somewhere closer to our house. We love it because of the family atmosphere! Everyone is very professional, but also very personable and friendly. You always feel welcome from the minute you walk through the door.

    Giebenhain Dental is a great choice for working families. Accommodating office hours, helpful appointment reminders and efficient care are just some of the benefits of dental care at Giebenhain Dental. The staff is friendly and professional and I love the "up north" feel of the office reception area. I highly recommend Giebenhain Dental.

    Our family of five has been going to Giebenhain Dental for nearly 15 years -- Dr. John is the only dentist our girls have ever had. We enjoy the personal yet professional atmosphere during every one of our visits. The entire staff makes our family feel welcome and it's clear they truly care about our health and happiness. We always leave with a smile -- a cleaner, healthier smile! We wouldn't go anywhere else!
