Losing a tooth (or teeth) can be a devastating experience emotionally.Dental implants have long been recognized by dental experts as the most effective dental procedure of choice for teeth replacement. Dental implants are substitutes for the roots of missing teeth and are designed to last a lifetime. Because they are well integrated in the jawbone, dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth.
With dental implants, you will be able to eat, speak, smile confidently. Dental implants may be the answer if you are looking for an attractive, comfortable, and permanent replacement for missing teeth.
We can discuss your concerns at our Pearl Dentistry San Antonio office and explain the many benefits that dental implants can offer.
Dental implants act as metal anchors, which are surgically placed into the jawbone to hold permanent replacement teeth or dentures. Implant treatment is performed at Pearl Dentistry San Antonio Texas Office itself.
To create the best treatment plan for you, we need to perform thorough oral examination as well as x-rays. The procedure and follow-ups are often performed in our dental clinic using local anesthetic, depending on your individual situation.
During surgery,each implant is placed within the jawbone, serving as an anchor for the post which will eventually support the replacement tooth or teeth. Generally, three to six months is then allowed for the bone tissue to grow around the implants and hold them securely in place.Once the jawbone has firmly healed around the implant a small post is attached to each implant, the replacement teeth or dentures are securely attached to the posts.
The care you give to your dental implants makes a great difference to the overall satisfaction you experience, as well as to the longevity of the implant itself. With proper oral hygiene habits and Periodic dental check-ups your implant(s) will have good longevity.
