Get a New Smile with Dental Implants

If you’ve lost a few teeth to dental decay, trauma, gum disease, or other problems, you may find talking, smiling, and chewing certain foods a challenge. Affordable dental implants might be the answer. Implants consist of artificial tooth roots and visible crowns that are indistinguishable from natural teeth. When you have implants, you can smile and talk with confidence again, and you can even enjoy many foods you may have been avoiding for years. Dental implants can even help prevent bone loss that may alter the look of your face over time.

Find a Skilled Dental Implant Dentist
For the best dental implants, start by finding a qualified dental implant dentist with experience. Implantation can be performed after adolescence or when growth is complete. Dentists who specialize in implants include oral surgeons, periodontists, and prosthodontists. At your initial appointment, your dentist will take x-rays and other tests to determine if you have enough healthy bone and gum tissue for the implant procedure. If you don’t, you may need bone or tissue grafts before you can have implant surgery. Once a treatment plan is in place, you can discuss details of the procedure such as your anesthesia options and the number of appointments required. 



Procedure for Dental Implants


Your dentist will first make a small pilot hole in your jaw at the site of the missing tooth and place a titanium screw. Your dentist may use CT scan images as references to avoid damaging nerves during the process. After the screw is in place, the living bone must adhere to the implant. It may take up to six months for this process to occur. Next, an abutment is placed onto the screw to hold the crown. A temporary crown covers the site and allows gum tissue to heal around it in a natural shape. After this phase is complete, your dentist will place the permanent crown.

Care and Recovery After Dental Implant Surgery

To ensure proper fusing of the implant and bone after surgery, it’s important to pay close attention to oral hygiene and follow all postoperative instructions carefully. Some minor bleeding, swelling, bruising, and discomfort is normal, and medications will help ease symptoms. If you keep your follow-up appointments and make good oral hygiene a habit, your implants can last for up to 40 years.
