Understanding Dental Implants

Posted on 5/22/2023 by Dr. Boustany
Understanding Dental ImplantsDental implants are a great help to those people who have issues like missing teeth, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, over and under bites, or even decaying teeth. This simple procedure will require the shortest healing time. The implants offer attractive options for replacing teeth. Dental implants come with their benefits to make sure that you still retain that attractive smile or even eat your favorite foods.

Procedure for Dental Implants

The first procedure for having a dental implant is taking an impression of the patient's mouth to identify the dental implant that will fit them best. The synthetic tooth is made to match the natural color of your teeth, the size as well as the shape. By doing so, you will retain your appearance and your smile will be restored.

A metal post is then inserted beneath the gum line. The metal post is made to create a durable and synthetic root system that matches the strength of natural teeth.

During the healing process, the jawbone and the metal post fuse and integrate. The new synthetic tooth is later secured to the metal post at the gum surface after healing and this leaves the patient happy and maintains a smile.

Who needs Dental Implants?

Many people are candidates for dental implants and are only disqualified when they are suffering from periodontal gum disease, often smoke, or have osteoporosis. We examine our patients first, then determine if you're a candidate for the implants. It is good to set up an appointment to have a dental check-up. The dental check-up will help determine if you have gum disease or other diseases that will hinder you from having dental implants. Visit us or make a call to set up an appointment for a dental check-up or to have dental implants and maintain that healthy smile.
