Cosmetic dentists are high in demand as new innovations allow for an increased number of options in tooth replacement. Many cosmetic dentists specialize in dental implants, frames that are surgically placed into the jawbone, functioning as a foundation for prosthetic teeth. Because inserting a dental implant is a surgical procedure, it is important that the patient undergoing this procedure is in good health. Huntersville dental implant dentists are highly qualified, and will thoroughly exercise all safety precautions before recommending the procedure.
A dental implant takes place in three stages. The first stage has to do with the placement of the actual implant. This is where the frame is inserted into the jawbone. After the placement, the implant must enter a healing process. During the healing process, the implant becomes more secure within the jawbone as the bone grows around the frame, locking the implant place. Since healing may take up to several months, your dentist may have a denture prepared for you to wear during the waiting period. After the implant has healed, the dentist will now place the prosthetic tooth onto the implant, completing the tooth replacement process.
Dental Implants are an excellent option for tooth replacement for many reasons:
With the proper care and dental hygiene routine, dental implants can last for years upon years.
Unlike bridges, dental implants do not require the reduction of surrounding teeth.
Loss of teeth can make one feel ashamed of his or her appearance. Dental implants can help you to regain your beautiful smile.
Dental Implants have a success rate of 98%
Eating, drinking and chewing with dental implants is much easier than sliding dentures. Dental implants function just as if they are your own teeth and allow you to eat and drink without insecurity or pain.
Dental implants are easy and simple procedures that have had millions of successful outcomes. Patients report that they have endured very little pain while undergoing this procedure.
