Replacing missing teeth with DENTAL IMPLANTS
Are you missing teeth? Have you thought about Dental Implants?
What are implants?
Dental implants serve as artificial tooth roots, they will be made out of titanium material, this will be screwed into the jawbone ready to attach the tooth or teeth onto. The process can be completed in as little as 2 months, unless other treatments are needed then the process will be longer. 1 dental implant can support more than one tooth.
Having Dental Implants:
You will have a full examination including x rays taken of your teeth along with impressions (molds of your teeth).
A treatment plan will be made specifically for you this will include how many teeth will be replaced using dental implants, the condition of the jawbone in the area the implant is to be placed. It will also be discussed how to look after your implants once they are placed.
The procedure is a lengthy process with the majority of the time is for the healing and allowing the bone to regenerate around the implant and hold it in place.
Oral hygiene after Implants
After your implants are fitted, you will be guided on how to maintain your oral health brushing twice, daily and flossing once a day. Implants can’t get tooth decay but you can still get gum disease. Gum disease if left untreated can cause implants to become loose and fall out.
