What is the dental implant process?
The first step in the dental implant process involves placing the titanium implant into the jawbone. Once a small incision is made in the gums, a hole is carefully drilled into the jawbone and the implant is placed. A few weeks of recovery time will be necessary to allow the gums to heal and the implant to fuse with the jawbone. A temporary crown can be used in the meantime if you would like. After that, a custom crown is designed and attached to the top of the implant, and the patient is free to enjoy their favorite foods and smile confidently once again!
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer a variety of excellent benefits. Patients love dental implants because they:
- Are Customized to Blend in Seamlessly with Surrounding Teeth
- Feel and Function Like Natural Teeth
- No Special Care Required; Can Be Treated Like Natural Teeth
- Help Maintain Face Shape and a Healthy Jawbone
- Can Last a Lifetime When Treated Well
How do I maintain a dental implant?
Dental implants are pretty low maintenance compared to other restorative options, but it is important to take care of your oral health to help your natural teeth and implant(s) last for as long as possible. Patients should be sure to brush and floss their teeth regularly at home and visit our office for routine cleanings and exams at least twice per year. If you need many teeth replaced, implant-supported dentures may be a better option for you, and they should be taken care of like regular dentures. If your implant crown is ever damaged or your implant feels loose at all, please let our office know so we can assess the situation and resolve the issue.Contact Us
