Missing a few teeth or concerned that having a tooth pulled will make your smile incomplete? Dental implants may be the right path to smile restoration. At Anderson and Breding Dental, we offer the most advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures, including dental implants.
Dental Implants: What Are They, and How Do They Work?
Dental implants are tooth-replacement devices that are installed in the bones that normally support your teeth. A dental implant most often consists of several parts, including:
- The implant, which is inserted into the bone
- The abutment post, which is attached to the implant
- The crown, which is installed over the abutment to restore the look of a natural tooth
Obtaining dental implants does require surgical placement. However, the type of implant used determines exactly how the procedure is performed. Regardless of the type of implant you choose, our team works hard to make sure you are comfortable throughout the treatment process.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Dental implants are a good option for patients that have lost a single tooth, a few teeth, or all of their teeth. Different techniques or types of implants may be recommended based on your needs. For example, if you need to replace all of your upper teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-supported dentures, dentures with bridges, or something else.
Most patients are good candidates for dental implants. The primary attribute the dentist will examine is your overall oral health and whether you have medical conditions that could interfere with the surgery or the healing process. For example, individuals that are prone to infection or slow healing may not be the best candidates, but this is not always an issue.
How Long Does It Take to Get Dental Implants?
Dental implant procedures may require a few appointments to handle different steps in the process. For example, you may have a procedure scheduled to install the primary implant, and then need appointments to place the abutment and the crown. It does take time for the implant to fuse with the natural bone, and the healing process can take several weeks.
