Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that provide a foundation for your replacement teeth. Your dental implants will be placed directly into your jawbone, and the posts will gradually bond with the bone tissue over the course of several months. Once this process is complete, the implants will provide a stable base for your replacement teeth.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option for eligible candidates because they provide several unique benefits. Dental implants have a very high success rate when properly placed by an experienced dentist. They are also a root replacement. The implant post acts as an artificial tooth root, which fuses with the jawbone surgically.
How Long Does It Take to Receive an Implant?
Dental implant procedures may require numerous appointments. This will depend on the number of implants you are receiving and your health condition.
At our office, we place the implant during your first visit. The implant will need time to heal and fuse with the bone. This process can take several weeks. Once your implant heals, we will place the final restoration. This can take several visits, depending on your treatment plan.
What Are the Benefits of Getting Dental Implants?
If you decide to get dental implants, you can look forward to having a beautiful smile once again. The restoration that will be attached to the implant is made to match your smile, which makes it blend well with the rest of your teeth.
Restored Tooth Function
A dental implant replaces the tooth root and restores the function of your tooth.
Perhaps one of the most noticeable benefits of dental implants is their increased comfort level. They are secured to the jaw, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Improved Overall Health
Dental implants can improve more than just your appearance. The implants work to improve your overall dental health, too. Because they replace missing teeth, the implants prevent neighboring teeth from shifting and jawbone loss. Eliminating the gaps in your teeth also contributes to preventing gum disease and tooth decay.
