What Are Implants?
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. They are small, titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Once the implants are in place, a replacement tooth or teeth can be attached to restore your smile and improve your oral health.
If you’re considering dental implants, the first step is to schedule an assessment with our team. During your assessment, we will examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if dental implants are the right choice for you. We will also discuss the implant process, including the number of appointments required, the estimated cost, and what to expect during recovery.
One of the main benefits of implants is that they look and feel like natural teeth. The implants fuse with the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth, which helps to maintain the integrity of the jawbone and prevent bone loss. Additionally, dental implants can be a long-lasting solution providing years of functional and aesthetic benefits.
The dental implant process typically involves multiple appointments over the course of several months. The first step is to place the implant(s) into the jawbone, which requires a minor surgical procedure. Once the implant is in place, it will need time to heal and fuse with the bone. This process can take several months. Once the implant is fully integrated, the replacement tooth can be attached. When all steps are complete, the replacement tooth will look and feel like a natural tooth.
It’s important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. Your overall health, oral health, and lifestyle can all impact the success of the implant procedure. During your assessment, our team will evaluate these factors to determine if dental implants are a safe and effective solution for you.
If you decide to move forward with dental implants, our team will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals. We will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your implants, including proper brushing and flossing techniques, as well as regular check-ups to ensure that your implants are functioning properly.
In summary, dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. If you’re considering dental implants, please schedule an assessment with our team and we will help you to determine whether they are the right choice for you.
