Beam Boldly With Dental Implants

There’s no question that your smile is your best accessory. If you have missing teeth, however, you may feel too self-conscious to smile. Fortunately at First Dental Studio, we have a solution: dental implants.

Benefits of Implants

While there is a variety of tooth replacement options from which to choose, dental implants have several advantages over these:

  • Dental implants look natural and life-like.
  • The implant portion is composed of titanium, which is a biocompatible metal.
  • Dental implants are highly secure and stable.
  • Dental implants prevent bone loss, inhibiting changes in the shape of your face.
  • When cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why consider dental implants?

While missing teeth can detract from your appearance and affect your self-esteem, your oral health also can be adversely impacted. Why? When a gap exists, existing teeth can move, which may result in tooth loss. Bone loss can also occur, as the gum tissue degenerates over time. When this takes place, it can alter your facial profile and make you look older than you are. Chewing also can become difficult.

The good news is that dental implants can halt these processes and restore your ability to eat what you want and speak easily and comfortably.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Most healthy adults can get dental implants. Some health conditions may reduce their effectiveness though. That’s why you will be asked questions about your health history at your appointment. We want to make sure that dental implants are appropriate for your needs.

What does the process of getting an implant involve?

After we’ve performed an examination and concluded that dental implants are the best way to achieve your smile goals, we’ll take X-rays and gather all the required information. If we determine that bone grafts or extractions are necessary, we’ll perform those procedures first and allow you to heal before getting started.

The titanium post is inserted into the jaw. We can provide you with a temporary crown while we allow the implant to integrate. Next, we can place your permanent crown, bridge or denture on the implant. We’ll inspect the fit and appearance.

If you have any questions, we’ll be happy to answer them.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Dental implants are designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. You will be able to easily brush and floss your implants in a similar way as you would with your real teeth. While implants will never get cavities or require a root canal, you still need to brush and floss daily to ensure that the gum around the implant and your natural teeth stay healthy.
