Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Dental implants offer multiple benefits to patients. Some benefits may include:
- Restored tooth function
- Long-lasting results
- Up to 98% success rate
- Increased comfort and alignment of the bite
- Filling tooth gaps
- Decreased oral health problems
- The look and feel of natural teeth
There are also several restorative options that are secured with dental implants. Dentures and dental bridges replace multiple teeth or even whole arches of teeth. Fixed hybrid dentures and overdentures, or “snap-on dentures” offer more stability because they are implant-secured.
Which Implant Solution Should You Choose?
We can evaluate your oral health and determine if a dental implant suits your needs. Dental implants are generally suitable for adults of any age. Even if you already wear dentures or a dental bridge, you can receive implants. Additionally, patients with gum disease, bone loss, chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure can receive dental implants. Children are still growing, however, so implants are only used in special cases.
Dental Implant Treatment
Before treatment for dental implants, Dr. Goyal will assess the health of your teeth to determine if a tooth, or multiple teeth, need to be removed. Additionally, he will examine your teeth to determine if your tooth loss is caused by decay or gum disease. You can also discuss your goals and budget with Dr. Goyal in order to determine if dental implants are the right treatment option for you.
To begin implant treatment, Dr. Goyal will plan the oral surgery phase. He will surgically place a titanium screw in the jaw bone. This post will mimic a tooth root and support a dental crown for tooth replacement. In most cases, the dental implant will require 3-6 months after oral surgery to fully heal and integrate with the bone. You will have a temporary crown placed during the healing process.
Once the bone has healed, we will install the final permanent restoration, which includes the abutment and dental crown. We ensure that the dental crown is color-matched to teeth so that it can blend in with your natural smile.
Dental implants typically require the same maintenance and oral hygiene care as natural teeth. Floss once a day, brush your teeth twice a day, and visit our dentist office bi-annually for routine dental cleanings and exams. With the right hygiene and care, dental implants can last you a lifetime!
What if I have gum disease, or need a tooth extraction?
If you require gum disease treatment, periodontal therapy, or a tooth extraction prior to treatment, please let us know. We treat diseased or decayed teeth first to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for treatment. Dr. Goyal may also examine your teeth to see if you would benefit from an implant-secured restoration instead, such as implant-secured bridges and implant-supported dentures.
