Dental implants are small metal posts placed deep in your jawbone, creating a durable base for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implant-retained prosthetic teeth will look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
The procedure for dental implants is an involved process, though it’s not painful or overly complicated. The transformative results dental implants deliver is well worth the time and effort it takes to get them.
Getting dental implants placed requires at least two in-office visits with Dr. Daneshvar at her office. Once you decide on implants, you’ll schedule your procedure well in advance.
Before your procedure, Dr. Daneshvar gives you a local anesthetic to make it comfortable for you. Then, she uses a special dental drill to insert the implant directly into your jawbone. During the procedure, you won’t feel a thing.
After the procedure, your jaw needs time to heal and allow the implant to fuse to your jawbone so it can support replacement teeth. Typically, this takes at least several months.
Once your jawbone has fully healed, you’ll come back in to have your permanent replacement prosthetic attached to your implant.
Dental implants offer a host of critical benefits for people with missing teeth, such as:
If you have a weak or insufficient jawbone that can’t properly support implants, you may need bone grafts. Dr. Daneshvar will help you make sure that a dental implant restoration is the right choice for you.
One of the reasons dental implants are so popular is that as long as you practice good oral hygiene, they can last virtually a lifetime.
An astonishing 90% of dental implant restorations last patients for at least 30 years. It’s important to note that their longevity depends largely on you. Make sure to continue brushing, flossing, and maintaining your regularly scheduled cleanings with Dr. Daneshvar.
