Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are natural-looking replacements for broken or missing teeth. They’re a great solution because of their longevity and durability. They sometimes can last a lifetime if well cared for and maintained. They’re a great option if you have dentures or other non-permanent teeth that can cause difficulty eating and talking. Dental implants can give you confidence thanks to a radiant, new smile.

Dental implants can be a good option if you still have other teeth that are intact because the implant has no effect and causes no damage to surrounding teeth.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are a straightforward procedure that should be successful for anyone who has healthy gums and healthy bone structure. The best way to ensure that is to practice proper oral hygiene and to visit a dentist annually for checkups.

What happens during the dental implant procedure?

Your provider starts by examining your teeth and coming up with a customized treatment plan that works for you and your teeth. To start the procedure, they place a root implant into the bone socket. The implant is made of titanium, which fuses with bone effectively. It takes time for the mouth to heal and form around the root implant.

After 3-6 months of healing, your provider takes impressions of your teeth. This impression forms the basis of a crown that’s then attached and secured to the root implant. The implant is color corrected to match the rest of your teeth so that it looks just as natural.

Do dental implants hurt?

Most patients agree that there’s minimal pain because of the anesthesia, that getting dental implants is less painful than a tooth extraction. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help as you recover from the procedure.

The Arcadia Perio Care team is committed to their patients’ comfort and well-being and your provider is more than happy to all of your questions about the dental implant process.
