Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

When you lose permanent teeth, your life changes. You might struggle with eating your favorite foods, maintaining good oral health, and feeling confident. Thankfully, there are great tooth replacement options available today. Dental implants are the most natural. Are they right for you?

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants have three parts: the small titanium post (which is the implant itself), the abutment (which attaches the implant to the restoration), and the restoration. This is the part that looks like a tooth. Restorations include dental crowns, which can replace a single tooth or be used as part of a dental bridge, and implant-supported dentures. The dental implant process takes longer than other tooth replacements, but it’s worth it for many people.

Why Choose Implants?

Implants have many benefits. The biggest is that they are the most natural tooth replacement option. We surgically implant the post into your jawbone. During the healing process, the implant is incorporated into your jawbone where it fills the space left by the root of the missing tooth. As you chew, the post stimulates your jawbone, preserving its density and strength. Implants are also a permanent solution, while regular bridges and dentures are considered temporary. Unlike dentures, implants don’t require special care beyond good brushing and flossing routines.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

People with missing teeth, good oral health, and good jawbone density are ideal candidates for dental implants. At your consultation, Dr. Nguyen will perform a thorough exam and take X-rays to see if your jaw will support implants. If your bone density isn’t great, bone grafts are an option.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
