Implants Q & A

 

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots usually made of titanium or ceramic. These implants can attach to crowns, bridges, and dentures to replace missing permanent teeth and give you the gorgeous smile of your dreams.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Among the many benefits you can experience after choosing dental implants at Smile Dental are:

  • A full set of teeth
  • Natural-looking teeth
  • No more gaps
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Less adjacent teeth shifting
  • More self-confidence

Dental implants and the artificial teeth that they support look, function, and feel like natural teeth. Implants can replace just one missing permanent tooth, several teeth, or all of your natural teeth during full-mouth rehabilitation.

Are dental implants right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants, your dentist reviews your oral health history and desired outcome. They examine your teeth and gums and evaluate your dental X-rays. You must be willing to attend several dental appointments and undergo a healing period after the implants are placed.

What happens during dental implant placement?

When you arrive at Smile Dental for implant placement, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. Your dentist numbs the treatment area so that you can avoid discomfort. They make tiny incisions and insert dental implants into your jawbone. Follow your post-implant instructions to minimize tenderness.

After a period of healing, you can return to Smile Dental. Your dentist digitally scans your mouth so a dental lab can create custom-fitted artificial teeth. When the new teeth are ready, your specialist bonds them to your implants to perfect the appearance of your smile. They ensure proper fit before sending you home.

What should I expect after getting dental implants?

There’s no downtime after getting your new teeth, so you can resume your daily routine immediately. Take good care of your smile by brushing twice daily, flossing every day, and not chewing on ice, hard candy, and other hard objects like pens.

Call Smile Dental right away if you damage your implants, crowns, bridges, or dentures. Attend professional cleanings and exams with your dental team every six months, or more frequently if recommended.
