Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement. They integrate with the bone to provide support for crowns and dentures.
Your jawbone begins to shrink from lack of stimulation. Losing your teeth will affect your smile and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged.
Dental implants can be placed in most adults. Please ask your dental implant specialist to explain the benefits and risks to see if dental implants are right for you.
No, dental implants are typically placed under local anesthesia. Most treatments can be completed in your clinician's office.
You may return to work the next day unless otherwise instructed by your clinician. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any minor discomfort you may have.
They may be placed in as little as 30 to 60 minutes depending on the location and the number of implants placed.
A graft may be needed if your clinician determines there is not sufficient bone or gum tissue.
Treatment time varies by patient. Typically, you will have some type of temporary teeth until your implants integrate with the bone. Your clinician can provide a time estimate based on your treatment needs.
Home care for your implants consists of brushing and flossing. Regular dental visits are required for long-term health and success.
Implants can last many years if cared properly. Many implants have been in place for more than 40 years.* Dental implants require low maintenance and provide stability and confidence in your smile. Therefore, the long-term value of dental implants far exceeds conventional treatment options.
