Dental Implants

For those who suffer tooth loss due to gum disease, injury, or root canal failure, dental implants act as artificial roots for missing teeth. dental implants can restore tooth functionally and prevent jawbone loss.

Before Dental Implant Treatment

Ensure you treat any underlying oral health issues before considering dental implant treatment. Dental implant treatment can begin after the dentist examines the teeth, gums, and mouth. Professional teeth cleaning before any dental treatment can help improve the procedure’s success rate and prevent complications.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants provide benefits that other tooth replacement options such as dentures and bridges cannot match. Additionally, dental implants come in various shapes and sizes.

Natural Look 

Our dentists can create dental implants that perfectly match the color of surrounding teeth. dental implants look so natural that most people cannot tell the difference between an original tooth and a dental implant.

Jawbone Loss

Losing teeth can also lead to bone and tissue loss in the jaw. A healthy jawbone requires constant stimulation from teeth. Dental implants act like real teeth and stop jawbone loss.

Better Appearance

Teeth support the structure of a face. Missing teeth result in a change in the shape of the face, which makes a person look older. Dental implants provide the same support as natural teeth to maintain facial structure.

Oral Hygiene

Dental implants require easy care with low maintenance. Brush and floss teeth twice daily, and get regular dental checkups. Most people do not need to buy special products, cups, or flossers to maintain good oral health.

The 4-step Dental Implant Process

  • First consultation: The dentist will perform a comprehensive examination to determine the best dental implant procedure. An initial consultation consists of taking digital scans and impressions of the teeth.
  • Tooth removal: Before inserting the implant, the dentist will remove existing teeth and remnants of lost teeth. The dental implant placement procedure can follow after tooth removal.
  • Dental implant: The dentist will insert the implant and attach a temporary crown. It takes an hour to perform a single implant. Use over-the-counter pain relievers to manage discomfort after the procedure.
  • Final procedure: After three to four months of healing, the dentist will take impressions to build a permanent crown for each dental implant. The dentist will provide instructions on caring for the new dental implants.
