What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer many excellent benefits to patients who choose to utilize them, including:
- Look, Feel, and Function Similarly to Natural Teeth
- No Food Restrictions or Special Care Required
- Help Maintain Jaw Health and Natural Face Shape
- Don’t Require Any Other Teeth to be Modified
- Can Last a Lifetime with Proper Care
What is the implant placement process like?
The first procedure involves making a small incision in the gums and creating a small hole where the implant will be. After the titanium post is placed, the gums are replaced around the implant, and a temporary implant crown may be placed. The recovery process takes a couple of weeks, during which time the implant will fuse with the jawbone. If everything looks good at this point, we will design, create, and place your permanent dental crown, and you are free to show off your new smile!
Are dental implants right for me?
Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. Patients who are interested in receiving one or more implants should be in general good health and have enough healthy jawbone tissue to support dental implants. The ideal patient should also be a nonsmoker or willing to quit smoking. Autoimmune disorders can sometimes increase a patient’s risk of implant failure as well. We will review your medical history, current health status, preferences, lifestyle, and oral health needs during your consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.Contact Us
