Consultation with Dr. Lanik

Your journey to a radiant smile begins with a detailed consultation with Doctor Craig Lanik, D.D.S., a leading dentist in Uniontown, Ohio:

  • Personalized dental exam and treatment planning: Every patient and their dental needs are unique. Dr. Lanik conducts a meticulous examination, understanding your oral health history, current condition, and future aspirations. This helps in crafting a treatment plan that’s just right for you.
  • Determination of candidacy for dental implants: Not everyone might be an immediate fit for dental implants. Factors like jawbone density, gum health, and overall oral hygiene play a crucial role. Dr. Lanik’s expertise ensures you get a clear and honest assessment of your suitability for the procedure.
  • Referral to trusted specialists for implant surgery: While Dr. Lanik is the expert in crafting the crown or denture to fit over the implant, the actual implant surgery requires specialized skills. We collaborate with some of the best specialists in the region, ensuring that you’re in safe and capable hands throughout the process.

Stages of Dental Implant Treatment to Achieve a Perfect Mouth Restoration

Embarking on the journey of dental implants is a step-by-step process, ensuring optimal results and long-term success. At Peak Dental Arts, we break down this journey into distinct stages, each crucial in its own right, to provide our patients with a clear understanding and set expectations.

Stage One: Implant Placement

The foundation of a successful dental implant lies in its secure placement within the jawbone. This stage is pivotal and sets the tone for the subsequent steps:

Surgical placement of a titanium post into the jawbone: Titanium, known for its biocompatibility, is the material of choice for dental implants. The post is a substitute for the tooth root, providing a sturdy base for the crown or denture. The surgical procedure is carried out with utmost precision, ensuring minimal discomfort to the patient.

Healing period of three to six months before final restoration: Once the implant is placed, the body needs time to heal. During this period, the jawbone grows around the implant in a process called osseointegration. This natural fusion ensures the implant is securely anchored, paving the way for the final restoration.

Stage Two: Restoration Placement

With the implant securely in place, the next step is to complete the visible part of the tooth:

  • Placement of a crown over a single dental implant by Dr. Lanik: For patients missing a single tooth, a custom-made crown is crafted to match the color, shape, and size of the surrounding teeth. Dr. Lanik’s expertise ensures that the crown looks natural and offers full functionality.
  • Creation of a denture-supported implant for multiple implants: In cases where you have multiple missing teeth, denture-supported implants come into play. These specially designed dentures anchored to multiple implants provide stability, improved function, and a natural appearance.

Step Three: Bone Grafting – Ensuring a Solid Foundation

The jawbone might not have the required density or volume to support an implant. This is where bone grafting becomes essential:

  • Comprehensive dental care, including bone grafting treatments: At Peak Dental Arts, we offer bone grafting as part of our extensive dental services. This procedure involves adding bone or bone-like material to the jaw to enhance its volume.
  • Assessment of jawbone health and determination of grafting needs: Before proceeding with grafting, a thorough evaluation is done to determine the jawbone’s health and the extent of grafting required.
  • Fusion of bone graft to jawbone, ensuring secure implant placement: Post grafting, a waiting period is essential for the graft to fuse with the natural bone. This fusion creates a robust foundation, ensuring that the dental implant is seated securely and lasts for years.
