Dental Implants – What You Can Expect

Dental Implants

Are you a candidate for dental implants? Implants can replace natural teeth when other procedures such as root canals aren’t possible, or dentures and bridgework don’t provide satisfactory results. A dental implant is a natural-looking artificial tooth attached to underlying bone with metal posts that resemble screws. Because the multistage process includes allowing time for the jawbone to heal, it can take several months. After healing, you’ll have a stable, fully functional replacement tooth that is easily maintained through routine dental care.

Who Can Have Dental Implants?

Dental implants can restore missing teeth as long as you have a healthy, stable jawbone and healthy oral tissues, and you have no medical conditions that would complicate healing. In some cases, a bone graft is required.

Implant Risks

All surgeries carry some risks. With dental implants, problems such as infection, nerve damage, blood vessel damage, or damage to surrounding teeth may occur. In some cases, dental implants placed in the upper jaw may interfere with sinus function.

How to Prepare for a Dental Implant

Be sure to tell your doctor about all medical conditions and prescription and over-the-counter drugs and supplements you take. Your anesthesia options include local anesthetic injections, conscious sedation, or general anesthesia. Your dentist in Quail Meadows can help you decide which option is best for you and advise you on the dental implants cost.

What Happens During the Procedure

First, if you have a damaged tooth in place, your surgeon will remove it. Next, your jawbone is prepared for the implant. After the bone heals sufficiently, a metal post is placed. It may take several months for the bone to heal before the extension, also called an abutment, is inserted into the post. Finally, the crown of the artificial tooth is positioned.

Implant Results

There may be a period of swelling, bleeding, and sensitivity while your implant site heals. Follow your dentist’s recommendations for care. Once fully healed, your new implanted tooth will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.
