What would you do if you could restore your smile with a straightforward dental procedure? With dental implants, you can revitalize your smile and improve your oral health. Most patients find that implants are secure, stable, and an excellent replacement for their teeth
Understanding the Procedure
Designed to blend in with a patient’s natural teeth make implants a compelling choice and long-term solution for restoring a patient’s smile. The development and use of implants are one of the most beneficial dental advancements in the last four decades, so patients understand they are in good hands during the process.
After the initial consultation, the implants are surgically placed into the patient’s jawbone. Next is a period of healing where the bone secures itself to the implant called osseointegration. This process can take up to several months to guarantee the bone has securely grown around the implant. Once osseointegration is complete, the artificial tooth or crown is placed on the implant leaving the patient with a confident and natural-looking smile sure to impress.
Caring for Dental Implants
After the implant process is complete, patients are encouraged to care well for their oral health to promote long term stability of the implant. Proper care includes daily brushing and flossing, routine dental exams, and informing the dentist of any complications. If patients have any questions or concerns, our staff is available to efficiently and effectively answer.
