Dental implants are a beautiful natural-looking solution for missing teeth. They are the modern-day treatment of choice for tooth replacement. Overall, most people find that dental implants are comfortable, convenient, and improve the function and appearance of their teeth. Your dental implants can last a lifetime with good oral health care.
Dental implant surgery is a highly successful procedure, but it is not for everyone. Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and bones to support the implant. Your Dental Health Associates, P.A. dentist will examine your condition and recommend a treatment plan. After dental implant surgery, your dentist will monitor your progress and design a maintenance program specifically for you.
What to Expect
Dental implant procedures require a series of appointments. It usually takes from three to nine months for the process to be completed.
Surgery is required to place the dental implant in the jawbone. In some cases, a series of implants are joined together by a support bar. The bar provides security and stability for a full denture. After surgery, you will receive pain medication and antibiotics. You will initially need to eat a soft diet and refrain from strenuous activities.
It may take up to six months for your bone to fuse with the implant. After healing has taken place, your dentist will attach your crown or denture to the dental implant. This process may require several adjustments to achieve a good fit.
