We’ve meticulously crafted the perfect dental implants experience!
Missing teeth can feel uncomfortable, affect speech, ruin smiles, and cause oral health issues later in life – we can help you replace missing teeth with dental implants.
An implant is an artificial tooth root placed in your jawbone to secure a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture. Dental implants feel natural and do not affect neighbouring teeth. Implants are made of titanium metal. Once the insertion of the dental implant is completed, our dentist will place a crown onto this artificial root to resemble a complete looking tooth.
- Secures dentures efficiently
- Increased comfort
- Improved bite
- Looks and feels natural
Will It Hurt To Install My Dental Implant?
While it is still considered a form of dental surgery, the placement typically causes very little discomfort. During the procedure, we will use a local anaesthetic. As the numbness wears off, you might experience a little bit of aching, but it should be tolerable.
Following the procedure, you can expect some minor swelling and light tenderness that will go away after a week at the most. Soreness is completely normal. The amount of discomfort that you feel will depend on the length of your procedure as well as the complexity of the case. Other factors that go into the easiness of the procedure are your individual situation, including where the implant is being placed as well as your general oral health.
What Do I Have To Do Following The Procedure?
Following the placement of your dental implant we will supply you with a set of instructions that are specific to your treatment. These instructions must be followed closely to reduce the risk of any complications and to ensure that your recovery is quick. While the specific instructions can vary, generally following an implant procedure you will need to get plenty of rest in order to promote healing, which includes refraining from exercise, bending, lifting, or any strenuous activity that could increase your risk of bleeding or swelling.
You should continue with your regular home hygiene, keeping your mouth clean, but taking care around the surgery site.
Try to eat healthy and nourishing food to give you ample energy and improve your healing time, but you must avoid straws for at least a week after surgery as the sucking motion can disturb the surgical area. If your jaw is sore or you are experiencing swelling, you can use an ice pack on that side of your face for up to 15 minutes at a time.
Who Is A Candidate For Dental Implants
If you are considering a dental implant, you should first confirm whether you are the right candidate for a dental implant. The first factor is whether you have adequate bone support in the area the implant would be placed. The longer the tooth has been missing, the less bone density there will be in the area. Bone grafts can often offer a solution if this is an issue.
Another major factor is gum health. Patients who suffer from periodontal disease have a higher risk of implant failure due to a lack of gum support or bacteria.
Ideally, you would need good oral and physical health as well as great oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and routine dental visits as well as enough bone density in your jaw to support the placement of an implant. The best way to find out whether you are a candidate, however, is to call and schedule an implant consultation with us to review your specific situation and concerns.
How Successful Are Dental Implants
Dental implants are highly successful as long as the patient was an ideal candidate and continues to look after the implant following the surgical placement. The condition of the patient’s oral health, including whether he or she suffers from periodontal (gum) disease can greatly affect the success rate of implants. Certain medical conditions can affect your ability to heal as well, but with the right amount of knowledge before the procedure, we can do everything possible to make an implant a success.
Keeping up with regular dental visits and good home care will help ensure that your implant is a success.
Are Dental Implants As Strong As Natural Teeth
Actually, you might be surprised to discover that in some ways, dental implants are stronger than natural teeth. Dental implants are made from one of the strongest metals in the world: titanium. Implants are not susceptible to cavities like natural teeth are either; meaning the structural integrity of the implant is solid. The implant does need to be well placed within the bone to be strong enough to last as well. Even though the implant is made of a stronger material than natural teeth, patients should not think they do not need to care for the implant.
Keeping the gums and teeth around the implant healthy will help ensure the implant is a success.
