Dental implants are metal tooth roots attached to artificial teeth (crowns, bridges, or dentures). You might choose dental implants if you’re missing one or more permanent teeth and desire a more flattering smile. Missing teeth might occur because of tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma.
Some of the key benefits of dental implants at Integrated Aesthetic Dentistry include:
Dental implants are strong and long-lasting. They look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.
You may be a candidate for dental implants if you’re missing one or more permanent teeth and you desire a more attractive smile.
Your dentist evaluates your teeth and gums, takes dental X-rays, and reviews your oral health history. They discuss your desired outcome and cosmetic dentistry preferences.
You must have a strong and healthy jawbone or be willing to undergo bone grafting before getting dental implants.
The process of getting dental implants has multiple steps. During the first visit, your dentist numbs the treatment area so you don’t feel any discomfort. They gently insert titanium posts into your jawbone and allow a period of healing to take place. Your provider digitally scans your mouth so a dental lab can create your new teeth.
When the artificial teeth are ready, you can return to Integrated Aesthetic Dentistry. Your dentist ensures they fit properly and firmly secures crowns, bridges, or dentures to the implants.
The best way to take good care of dental implants is to brush your teeth, tongue, and roof of your mouth at least twice daily using fluoride toothpaste. Floss every day, eat a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables but low in added sugar, and avoid chewing on hard objects.
Attend routine dental cleanings and examinations at Integrated Aesthetic Dentistry every six months or if you experience signs of gum disease, tooth decay, or dental implant damage.
