Dental implants are small titanium anchoring devices implanted directly into the bone of your jaw to serve as a “root” for missing teeth. Unlike dental prostheses, these false teeth are not removable and are permanently attached to the bone just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants can often be the best treatment option for patients who want to replace one or more missing teeth.
Most implants have two separate parts: a titanium cylinder that the dentist surgically attaches to the upper or lower jaw, and a false tooth attached to the cylinder that is shaped to look like a real tooth. These false teeth are customized to fit perfectly to each patient’s mouth and are designed to give back the functionality they seek, allowing them to chew and talk without any worries.
We will answer this question during your first visit to our office, but in general, the best candidates for dental implants are those in good general and oral health. In addition, since dental implants are firmly inserted into the jawbone, it is necessary that patients have enough bone material for the procedure to be performed successfully. Contact us today and request your free dental implant consultation at Monk Dental center.
The most important part of a dental implant is your appointment with the dentist to examine the teeth that could need a prosthesis and to give you ample opportunity to discuss the procedure.
The surgery itself is generally performed in two phases. For the first part, we attach titanium cylinders to the bone of the jaw in the receiving area of the implant. To be effective, the anchor must first fuse with the jawbone and this process can take between two to six months. The second and final phase consists of installing your new teeth to restore function and aesthetics to your smile. The entire process lasts from four to eight months and results in healthy teeth that shine with vitality. Most patients experience only minor discomfort throughout the procedure and no major surgery is usually required.
Dental implants require the same dental care as your regular teeth: brushing, flossing and, of course, routine visits to your dentist and dental hygienist at the Monk Dental center.
With the advent of modern dentistry, patients who have lost teeth due to cavities, diseases or injuries have a new choice to replace them, in addition, to complete or partial prostheses. Dental implants allow patients to have comfortable, natural-looking teeth without the need for complex surgeries.
