Dental Implant Surgery – Your Questions Answered

dca-blog-272-mix-of-leftover-articles_1200x630

Although they’re strong and made to last, your teeth are vulnerable to decay, periodontal disease, and injury. If a tooth is lost, and you don’t replace it, you’re left with a hole in your smile and a number of other problems. Over time, your other teeth may shift, tilt or become crowded. You may suffer jawbone deterioration, which can make you look old prematurely. Chewing may become difficult due to bite abnormalities. Fortunately, there are several restoration options, and affordable dental implants are at the top of the list. A safe, predictable, and healthy option that has been in use for more than 50 years, dental implantation surgery offers an optimal solution for one or more missing teeth.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small metal anchor that is surgically attached to your jawbone to replace a natural tooth root, and hold an artificial crown. Affordable dental implants provide an ideal way to restore a missing tooth without involving healthy teeth in the process.

How Do I Know if I’m a Candidate for Implant Dentures?

Only your dentist can determine if affordable dental implants are right for you. In general, good candidates have fully developed jawbones, healthy gums, and no serious medical problems that would interfere with healing. If you don’t have enough viable bone to support an implant, there are several ways your dentist can correct the problem.

Are There Different Types of Dental Implants?

The best dental implants are available in many shapes, sizes, and types to meet the needs of every patient. They can replace one or more individual teeth, or serve as anchors for removable and fixed dentures and bridges. Implant dentures never slip or make unwanted noise like conventional dentures, and implant-supported bridges don’t involve neighboring teeth.

How Long will it Take?

Treatment time varies from patient to patient, but many implant procedures take several months to complete.

How do I get the Best Dental Implants?

Start by finding the right provider. An implant dentist’s education, experience, and skills are key; specialists qualified to perform dental implant restorations include general dentists, prosthodontists, oral surgeons, and periodontists.
