Can You Explain The Dental Implants Procedure?
Everyone wants to start at the beginning, right? Here’s our simple explanation: dental implants are small rods, usually made of titanium, that look like a screw. They get surgically inserted into your jaw and attached to a replacement restoration in order to create a lovely and fully operational new smile.
After implants have been inserted, they immediately begin to merge with the bone in your jaw and act as the roots of your teeth, which help make sure that you won’t fall prey to bone and gum tissue loss. There is a short healing process and then you’ll be ready for the world.
Is The Dental Implant Surgery Painful?
No. If your mouth is on the sensitive side, we will do everything possible to take it easy on you. As we discussed in our last blog post, we also have sedation dentistry available upon request.
Which Dental Implants Do You Offer?
You’ll have customized treatment options for your dental implants, including:
Traditional Implants: These are full-size implants that can replace single or multiple teeth.
Mini Dental Implants: We also offer mini dental implants. These implants are smaller and easier to place than traditional implants. They require less bone structure in order to place and can be used for people who have experienced some jawbone deterioration.
Implant-Anchored Dentures: We can also securely attach dentures to implants making sure they stay right where they belong.
Are Dental Implants Comfortable?
We think so, and so do our previous implants-receiving patients. That’s because our implants are engineered to feel and function like your natural teeth. The artificial tooth, or crown, is made to fit your mouth. It will be the proper size, shape, and color to fit in with the rest of your smile.
Will Dental Implants Last Forever?
That’s a lot to promise but we certainly hope so. We can tell you that our dental implants are built to last a long time, decades even. But they will require maintenance, just like your real teeth. The good news is that, as far as we can tell, dental implants can actually extend your life expectancy by allowing you to eat healthier. With any luck, you’ll get to look younger while living longer!
Can I Start Right Away?
This is the one question we get the most. The short answer is yes. Obviously, the sooner you call us, the sooner we can get to work on your smile.
