Tooth loss can affect every aspect of your daily life, from diminished oral function and pain to embarrassment about your smile appearance. Failure to replace missing teeth can cause shifting of remaining teeth and major issues with your bite. This can have a domino effect and cause unnatural tooth erosion, bacteria build-up, additional tooth loss, sensitivity and pain related to temporomandibular joint dysfunction. If you’re suffering from the repercussions of tooth loss, it’s time to restore your smile and quality of life. At Spectrum Dental and Prosthodontics, we have advanced training and extensive experience placing dental implants in Worthington, OH using the latest technology and an on-site dental lab for outstanding long-term results. When you choose Spectrum Dental and Prosthodontics for dental implants in Worthington, OH, you’ll soon discover why our practice is a top referred dental implant practice in the Greater Columbus, OH area!
A dental implant consists of three components that work together to replace a missing tooth or teeth lost due to damage or decay. The biocompatible titanium implant post is surgically placed in your jawbone. A small titanium piece called an abutment placed on or built into the top of the implant connects to the restorative dental crown. Once the post fuses with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration, it provides secure and durable support for a permanent natural looking single crown, zirconia bridge, implant supported dentures or full mouth dental implants
Dental Implants Provide
Dental implants offer amazing versatility because they can be used to replace one tooth, a row of teeth, an upper or lower arch or both arches. They can also be used to increase the stability and functionality of dentures. Dental implants prevent teeth on either side of the gap from shifting away from other teeth, thereby preserving your original mouth alignment. After you receive single or full mouth dental implants in Worthington, OH, you’ll no longer experience the physical and emotional discomfort associated with tooth

Dental Implant Process
Our dental implant process is personalized to meet your specific oral health needs, smile goals and budget. The first step is an in-depth consultation with one of our three prosthodontists to determine the condition of your jawbone and the best dental implant procedure to address your needs. The initial evaluation includes a discussion of your dental and medical history, digital X-rays and a cone-beam computed tomography scan to analyze your bone structure, nerve tissue and sinus cavities. During dental implant surgery, we offer anesthesia options to ensure your comfort and alleviate dental anxiety. Most patients who are getting full mouth dental implants receive IV sedation. After sedation has taken effect, we carefully drill small holes in your gums and place the implant posts in predetermined locations with the strongest bone density to provide maximum support. The surgery itself shouldn’t be painful because your mouth is numbed. If you’re getting full mouth dental implants, you’ll receive a temporary prosthesis to wear while your implant sites heal. Some degree of postsurgical pain can persist for up to 10 days. For some patients, pain is mild enough that it can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. After healing and fusion have occurred, the last step in your journey to a restored smile is being fitted for a beautiful, natural-looking crown, bridge or full mouth prosthesis that complements your facial aesthetics.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
During the first year after losing a tooth, 25% of the surrounding bone is lost and this progresses over time until it’s completely reabsorbed. Dental bridges present a major drawback because they require modification and capping of adjacent teeth with crowns, while bone loss continues unchecked under the false tooth. Traditional dentures don’t preserve the underlying bone, require messy adhesives and removal at night for cleaning. They’re also prone to slipping, which often leads to painful gum irritation, embarrassing situations and the need for periodic relining. After dental implants fuse with your jawbone, they stimulate new bone growth and provide permanent stability to restore over 99% of natural biting and chewing power. Dental implants in Worthington, OH will preserve and strengthen your bone structure, provide the ability to eat the foods you love and give you the confidence to smile again!
