Obtain A Lasting Solution To Missing Teeth With Dental Implants
Dental implants can be a great option for those looking to replace missing teeth or stabilize dentures at First-in-Smiles Dentistry in Matthews. They look and feel more natural than bridges or dentures and can replace missing teeth seamlessly.
How are dental implants placed?
We will examine your mouth and take X-rays before discussing your dental history, goals, and needs. If you are a good candidate for dental implants, our dentist will surgically place the dental implant below the gumline. We allow the artificial root time to heal and stabilize so the implant can reinforce your jawbone and intercept further bone loss. Once healed, we attach a replacement tooth crown above the gumline to the implant. The process requires several visits to our practice to ensure everything is progressing well.
What types of oral issues can dental implants address?
Dental implants can replace missing or broken teeth or support a bridge if several teeth are missing. They also provide stability for ill-fitting dentures, providing greater comfort and function.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants integrate into the jawbone and function like natural teeth. They provide greater stability than traditional dentures, increasing chewing ability and allowing you to enjoy all the foods you love. Dental implants are also a more permanent solution than conventional dentures or bridges that may need replacing every five to seven years.
How long does it take to recover from a dental implant procedure?
The recovery period for dental implants typically takes three to six months since the area needs time to heal, and the implants must integrate into your jawbone. The entire process can take up to a year, depending on the number of teeth needing replacement.
Who should consider getting dental implants?
People who want a permanent solution to missing or broken teeth should consider getting dental implants. It is essential to have a strong bone and jaw structure to support the implant. Our dentist can advise you if you’re a good candidate for this procedure.
