When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. While dentures are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth.
We are able to provide different dental implant solutions depending on your specific needs. We will conduct a thorough assessment and discuss your options with you during your scheduled appointment.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
One of the main complaints that we hear from patients with missing teeth is how it impacts their appearance. Dental implants feel and look like your real teeth, and this is a permanent solution to your problem. Since dental implants appear and function like your natural teeth they make eating, speaking, and talking easier too. Implants are also a more convenient . As we stated before, this is a permanent solution so you will never have to take them out in an uncomfortable situation like you would with dentures.
What is the process of receiving implants like?
First, you have to develop a treatment plan with a professional dentist. Once you understand your treatment options and decide which is right for you, you will receive a tooth root implant. This implant will be placed into the socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it will lock this implant securely into your mouth. After this portion of the procedure is complete, a post will be installed and your new tooth will be attached to it. Now your smile will look and function beautifully!
Is the procedure to receive dental implants painful?
Receiving dental implants is relatively painless. The majority of patients who receive implants report that the procedure included a very limited amount of discomfort. This is because you will be anesthetized for the entirety of the procedure.
What can I expect after my procedure?
Once this procedure is finished, your teeth will look brand new. It is important to take care of your implant and surrounding teeth to keep them looking clean and new for years to come. Dental implants should be treated as real teeth and brushing, flossing, and general oral maintenance should be done routinely to keep your mouth healthy.
