Common Dental Implant Questions
Hello and welcome to the Clearwater Dental Associates blog.
Today we want to discuss adult tooth loss.
If you are missing teeth, you won’t feel much like smiling and you won’t have the chewing capacity to eat the foods you love. Plus, your health will suffer as will your self-confidence.
The good news is that our Florida-based team is ready to help you take back your life. To make that happen, we firmly believe that dental implants are the best bet.
But before you move forward with investing in your future health and happiness, you may have some questions about the process.
Keep reading to see some of the most common questions we get, and then be sure to get in touch to schedule your appointment. We are confident that you’ll be excited about the possibilities.
Are You Able To Get The Job Done?
We have made implant dentistry a focal point in our office. You will definitely be in good hands with us.
Here’s the deal: The implant procedure requires only two steps. First we will insert a titanium post into your jawbone that functions as a root for your replacement tooth.
Then we will restore it with a crown, the part that looks like a tooth.
Does The Implant Surgery Hurt?
No. We will do everything possible to make it a pain-free and pleasant experience for you. That includes employing sedation dentistry techniques to guarantee that your visit is smooth and comfortable.
How Long Will I Have To Wait For My Teeth?
Depending upon your individual situation, temporary restorations may be placed the same day so that you can immediately look and feel much better. Final restorations will follow after the requisite number of months for healing take place. Be sure to ask about our teeth in a day option!
Are Dental Implants Comfortable?
Yes! Our implants are crafted to feel like your natural teeth. They’re given enough time to securely fuse with your jawbone and are the same size of a real root. No other artificial option even comes close to feeling this comfortable.
Will Implants Help Restore My Appearance?
For Sure! Remember: your smile will be full again. And there will be more facial structure support (i.e. no more sunken-in cheeks). So, your appearance will definitely get a boost as will your self-assurance.
How Long Will Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime but they will require some maintenance, just like your real teeth.
Brushing twice a day for two or more minutes, flossing and rinsing regularly, and visiting the dentist every three to six months will keep you on the good road.
Are Implants The Best Bet For Me?
Honestly, the only way to determine if dental implants are the best solution for you is to schedule a consultation with our team. When you pay us a visit in-person, our doctors will be able to examine your mouth, take digital X-rays, and assess your bone structure. After that, we can move forward if that makes the most sense.
