What are the benefits of an Implant over other types of restorations?
- Dental Implants offer a long-term solution to tooth extraction that includes a healthier smile, preserved bone, and minimal maintenance. A Dental Implant is placed in a multi-stage process that can take anywhere from 3-6 or 8 months depending on the health of the patient and your individual dental provider. For patients who qualify for Implant placement, the outcome is most times successful and very predictable.
Are you good candidate for Dental Implants?
- Not all patients are good candidates for Dental Implants. Several factors including bone health, number of implants required, and underlying medical conditions can play a role in determining candidacy for dental Implant delivery. Our doctors will perform a clinical evaluation prior to Implant placement.
How should you care for your Dental Implants?
- Dental Implants look, feel and should be cared for similar to your natural teeth. Practicing good hygiene habits, including twice daily brushing and flossing, in addition to visiting your dental professional for regular appointments will help preserve the integrity of your Dental Implant.
- Depending on the overall health condition of the patient, most dental implants and bone grafting procedures are performed under local or IV sedation anesthesia within the office setting.
