learn about dental implants

What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants can be thought of as artificial tooth roots that are placed in your jawbone and become a base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. A connector, known as an abutment, is placed on top of the dental implant to support the crowns. Dental implants are made from medical-grade titanium which provides a more durable and natural-looking root form. Given the numerous benefits and aesthetic qualities dental implants offer, they have become the preferred method of tooth replacement today.
What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are a more modern solution for tooth replacement than dentures or bridges. They are actually the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone and helps stimulate bone growth. Dental implants look, feel and function like a real tooth. They will not decay and are designed to last for the rest of your life. There is no slippage or discomfort that commonly happens with dentures. They also make eating and speaking easier, while improving your overall oral health.
Same-Day Dental Implants
The traditional implant process typically takes between 5-10 months. It takes a significant amount of time because receiving a dental implant actually involves several procedures, and there must be enough time devoted to healing.

Thanks to Dr. Kesecker’s expertise and our state-of-the-art surgical center, Legacy Surgery provides same-day dental implants in our Harrisonburg, VA office. Extracting the original tooth and implanting the new prosthetic in one visit offers some advantages that many people will appreciate.

  • Immediate tooth restoration
  • The soft tissues and gums tend to heal quicker and are less likely to recede.
  • The presence of the implant in the ooth extraction site keeps away contaminants and helps along the healing process.

To qualify for a same-day dental implant, the patient needs to be in good health and a non-smoker. Although the process is much quicker, it does not eliminate the need for osseointegration. You will leave with a new prosthetic tooth that feels and functions just like your natural teeth, but it will take about six months for the implant to integrate into your jawbone properly. It is best to stick with softer foods and avoid biting on hard things, especially at the beginning of your healing process.
Why Choose an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for Your Dental Implants?
Dr. Kesecker works in a state-of-the-art surgical center designed to deliver exceptional patient care using the most advanced technology available, including a 3D Cone Beam Scanner, which provides pristine, 3D images of the jaw and mouth areas for a more thorough, comprehensive examination and better preparation.

Further, Dr. Kesecker is uniquely trained and qualified to offer patients a variety of anesthesia options right in our office, including intravenous sedation (an excellent option for the anxious patient to “go to sleep” for the procedure) and oral sedation.

Finally, due to Dr. Kesecker's extensive additional training with 4 to 6 years of residency after dental school, Dr. Kesecker is specifically trained in all aspects of dental implant surgery. His in-depth familiarity with the structure of the facial and jaw bones allows the doctor to accurately assess the likelihood of long-term dental implant success or determine whether an initial bone or soft tissue graft would make the patient a better candidate for the treatment. If a bone or soft tissue graft is necessary, they can perform the procedure in the office.
