7 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
Just as with any surgery, some discomfort is to be expected. Anesthesia and various forms of sedation are commonly administered to help reduce the chances of discomfort during dental implant placement.
Adults and seniors who have lost one or more teeth due to severe gum disease, trauma, or tooth decay, may be candidates for dental implants. However, important factors, such as jawbone density and current oral and overall health, will help to determine if dental implants are the right choice for your needs.
Restore Aesthetics: Prolonged tooth loss can lead to jawbone weakening and shrinking from lack of continuous stimulation provided by tooth roots. Because implants are not only designed to look like natural teeth, they also replace missing teeth from root to crown. This helps stop the jawbone shrinking process, thus helping preserve facial features and natural aesthetics.
Preserve natural teeth: When your crown, bridge, or denture restoration is supported by dental implants, they only use implants for the anchor, helping keep your natural, neighboring teeth intact.
Permanent solutions: Dental implants become a permanent part of your jawbone because they fuse naturally with living bone and tissue. Because of this, your affixed restoration is more likely to stay in place without slipping or becoming dislodged.
Improve function & overall quality of life: Implants and their supported restorations are designed to feel and function like natural teeth. This means that you can chew, speak, smile, and eat with little to no dietary restrictions. Renewed aesthetics and dental function also help dental implant patients enjoy everyday life.
The final amount of your tooth replacement treatment with dental implants commonly depends on several factors. These often include the number of teeth that need replacing, how many implants need to be placed, the type of implant-supported restoration chosen, and if any preparatory procedures are necessary before placement.
The entire dental implant process may take anywhere from three to six months or even a year, depending on your unique needs. Your implant placement and healing period commonly determine your overall treatment time.
It is normal to have some swelling, soreness, and possible bruising in the gums after implant placement. Commonly, any discomfort you may experience can be treated with over-the-counter medications. Some implant patients can go back to their normal routine in about two to three days.
You may be surprised to discover that you can care for your new implants just as you would with natural, healthy teeth! Brush twice daily and floss at least once a day. Remember to visit your dentist every six months for routine cleanings and examinations. With proper oral hygiene and care, your implants may last for decades or longer.
Dental Implants for Healthy, Functional Smiles
Missing one tooth or several can make it hard to bite, chew, and enjoy overall health. With implant dental care, Dr.Saidi offers solutions to these issues. Dental implants are more stable than removable prosthetics, such as dentures and partials, and support bone health, which standard dental bridges cannot achieve.
With dental implants, patients benefit from the ability to eat most of their favourite foods. As the implant posts integrate with bone tissue like a natural tooth root, patients can bite and chew with renewed force. Saidi Dental Group provides a thorough treatment plan and medical evaluation during each implant consultation. Most patients are candidates for dental implants; however, a minority with medical history circumstances may require pre-treatment for other existing issues.
