Missing teeth shouldn’t leave you feeling embarrassed or inhibited. Dental implants are a natural-looking, long-lasting tooth replacement solution that can help you talk, eat, and smile just like you used to!
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are one of the most popular restorative dentistry options for those who are missing one or more teeth. An implant consists of a biocompatible titanium rod surgically implanted into the jaw, which effectively replaces the tooth root, topped with a crown, bridge, or dentures. This restoration depends on how many teeth need to be replaced.
Dental Implant Procedure
During your first visit, we’ll make sure your jaw is strong enough to support dental implants. If not, you may still qualify for the procedure after a bone graft. Once you’re ready to move forward, we will place the titanium rods in your gums. We’ll give them time to fuse into the jawbone, which creates a very strong base for your replacement tooth or teeth. After a few months of healing, we will fasten the crown, bridge, or dentures to the titanium rods, leaving you with a long-lasting and beautifully restored smile.
How to Clean Dental Implants
You can brush and floss around dental implants just as you would your natural teeth! There are no extra considerations when cleaning your dental implants; though superb oral healthcare is absolutely necessary to maintain your implants’ integrity. This is because unhealthy gums and neighboring teeth will put your jawbone at risk for infection. But by brushing twice a day for two minutes each time, flossing every day, consuming a balanced diet, avoiding tobacco products, and visiting us every six months for checkups and cleanings, your dental implants can last a lifetime!
