What Happens After You Get Dental Implants?

Dental Implants

After getting a dental implant, your smile will improve drastically. This is great news, but it’s also important to think about maintenance. To look after your implant, make sure you gently brush and floss the implant every day. Additionally, you should take steps to protect it from injuries if you play sports, and make sure you come in for regular checkups.

Surgical Advances

Our doctors make the most of the latest technology and advances in dental implants. They use a single stage implant, which doesn’t need a second procedure to uncover them. They do, however, have a six-week healing time before you can place artificial teeth on them. In some situations, your dentist may be able to perform the implant procedure at the same time as a tooth extraction, which reduces the number of surgical procedures needed.

When you get a dental implant placed, the procedure will be carried out by both an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist working together. The implant surgery, which includes the initial extraction and bone grafting (if needed), will be performed by our doctor. Then, our restorative dentist will fit the permanent prosthesis and make a temporary prosthesis if necessary.


Bone & Socket Grafting

When you have problems with the bones and joints in your jaw, bone grafting may be the answer. Following trauma to your bones, we can transplant bone tissue around an implanted device to help your bones grow correctly.

After finding that a bone graft is right for you, we can provide a tooth extraction and socket grafting. Through this procedure the remaining tooth socket should decrease in size and we will fill the hole to eliminate the cavity to avoid shifting teeth. In the end, your teeth will not only be aligned correctly, but they will also look great.

Call us today to discuss your needs, and we can help you decide if a dental implant, bone graft, or socket graft is right for you.


Dental Implants FAQ

What Is A Dental Implant?

When you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, we can use a titanium screw to replace them. They are a popular alternative to a dental bridge because your existing teeth don’t need to be changed in the process.

What Is The Cost Of A Dental Implant?

The overall cost of your dental implant depends on each specific patient. The cost will depend on how many teeth you need replaced.

Is A Dental Implant Right For Me?

If you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth, we will help you decide if you’re a candidate based on the state of the bone that’s available. If you are healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, then you are most likely healthy enough to receive dental implants. We will evaluate your dental and health history beforehand.

What Different Implant Options Do I Have?

You may choose from a simple single tooth replacement to a multiple teeth replacement or a full arch replacement. Your procedure will be based on how many teeth you’re missing.

What Is Involved In The Dental Implant Process?

  • Initial Consultation: During your first exam, we’ll take X-rays, discuss your medical needs and take impressions of your gums and teeth.
  • Procedure: We will install the implant in the opening of your tooth. You will be given a prosthesis as a temporary measure before the crown is installed.
  • Recovery Time: Your jaw bone will grow around the tooth during this three- to six-month healing time. 
  • Abutment: After the healing time, we will place an abutment on the implant. Soon, your smile will look perfect!
Every patient has different needs, so we will decide during your consultation what works best for you. We can discuss the process and recovery time in greater detail with you. 

Can I Have A Dental Implant If I Have Dentures?

Many patients have trouble chewing foods and ask if we can provide them with a dental implant. The answer is yes; you might be a candidate for a dental implant. We can provide implant-based solutions to secure your dentures. In the end, you’ll be able to eat and speak comfortably with your dentures.

How Will Dental Implants Affect Your Life?

With dental implants, you will be able to eat, drink, and talk with no worry. In most cases, dental implants will positively affect your quality of life. No longer will you be embarrassed because of dental problems!
