Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium. They are surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth. The implants fuse with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, creating a strong and durable anchor for dental restorations.

Most individuals with good oral health and sufficient jawbone density are suitable candidates for dental implants. However, a comprehensive evaluation by our implant specialist is necessary to determine your eligibility. Factors such as overall health, gum health, and any existing dental conditions will be taken into consideration during the assessment.

During the dental implant procedure, local anesthesia is administered to ensure you remain comfortable and pain-free. You may experience minor discomfort and swelling after the surgery, but it can be managed with prescribed medications. Our team will provide detailed post-operative care instructions to help minimize any discomfort during the healing process.

The dental implant process typically takes several months, including the healing period after implant placement. The duration can vary depending on individual factors, such as the need for bone grafting or the complexity of the case. Our implant specialist will provide you with a personalized treatment plan and a timeline specific to your situation.

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices, and avoiding habits such as smoking contribute to the longevity of dental implants. Our team will provide you with guidance on how to care for your implants to ensure their longevity.

Dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options. They provide a permanent solution that feels and functions like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Unlike traditional dentures, implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support and help preserve jawbone density. Additionally, dental implants have a high success rate and can significantly improve overall oral health and quality of life.
