Restore Missing Teeth and Self-Confidence with Dental Implants

Many adults have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, failed root canals, and accidental trauma, but it doesn’t mean they have to settle for gaping holes in their smiles. If you have missing teeth that are affecting your self-esteem and causing you to miss out on favorite foods, implants may be a perfect solution. Implantation can be performed after adolescence or when growth is complete. Affordable dental implants serve as artificial tooth roots that hold a prosthetic crown in place. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Not only do they save your smile by filling in the gaps, but the best dental implants also prevent the progression of bone loss that can alter your facial appearance.

For the best dental implants, start by finding a qualified dental implant dentist with experience. Dentists who specialize in implants include oral surgeons, periodontists, and prosthodontists. At your initial appointment, your dentist will take x-rays and other tests to determine if you have enough healthy bone and gum tissue for the implant procedure. If you don’t, you may need bone or tissue grafts before you can have implant surgery. Once a treatment plan is in place, you can discuss details of the procedure such as your anesthesia options and the number of appointments required.

Placing Dental Implants


The dental implant dentist will first make a small hole in your jaw at the site of the missing tooth and place a titanium screw. Your dentist may use CT scan images as references to avoid damaging nerves during the process. After the screw is in place, the living bone must adhere to the implant. It may take up to six months for this process to occur. Next, an abutment is placed onto the screw to hold the crown. A temporary crown covers the site and allows gum tissue to heal around it in a natural shape. After this phase is complete, your dentist will place the permanent crown.

At-Home Care After Surgery

For proper fusing of the implant and bone after surgery, it’s important to pay close attention to oral hygiene and follow all postoperative instructions carefully. Some minor bleeding, swelling, bruising, and discomfort is normal, and medications will help ease symptoms.

If patients keep their follow-up appointments and make good oral hygiene a habit, the best dental implants can last for up to 40 years.
