Implant dentistry entails the use of dental implants to replace missing teeth. The procedure restores your teeth function and aesthetics as well. You will have a beautiful smile and talk confidently. At Yardley Dental Arts, a top dentist in the area will examine you if you qualify for the treatment. Here is what you should know about implant dentistry.
For starters, we will examine your dentition to determine whether you are the right candidate for implants. Dr. Purvi Patel, the top dentist in the area, will check your gums and jaws. The primary reason is to find out if you have adequate jawbone to support the titanium post. The process is painless and quick; hence, you don’t have to be anxious.
Placing the implant is the next step once we are sure that you have a healthy jawbone. We use local anesthesia to eliminate any form of discomfort that you might feel. Alternatively, we might opt for oral sedation so that you can feel calm and relaxed. We will then surgically place a titanium implant into your jawbone.
Once we place the implant, you will need a healing period of 3 to 6 months. During this time, the dental implant fuses into your jawbone. Your body will determine the time that you will take to heal. The good news is that the chances of recuperating within 3 to 6 months are high. You only need to avoid eating food that can harm the wound.
The final step is to place your restoration to complete the entire process. There are three dental appliances that you can choose as per your budget, needs, and preference. You can go for a dental crown, implant-supported bridge, or an implant-supported denture. The good news is that the artificial teeth will resemble your natural dentition. No one will notice that you just got implants. After restoration placement, you will continue with regular oral hygiene, such as flossing and brushing.
Dental implants restore your confidence since you dint have to feel self-conscious while talking. You can eat all your favorite meals since the implant integrates with your bone. The best part is that you will speak without mumbling words at all. Implants can last up to 15 years when you take proper care of them.
They resemble natural teeth; thus, you don’t have to worry about looking odd. There is no need to buy superior products to maintain dental implants. You will continue using the regular toothpaste that you usually utilize. Your face won’t appear caved in due to missing teeth.
