What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants serve as artificial tooth roots, providing a stable and permanent base for replacement teeth. Once dental implants have healed and fused to the jawbone, we attach dental crowns to the implants with an abutment connector. These dental crowns look, feel, and function as natural teeth.
Is the Procedure Painful? How Long Does It Take?
Patients don’t experience pain during a dental implant procedure once local anesthesia has been administered. Patients can experience mild discomfort after the local anesthesia wears off. Dr. Garcia-Rivera will develop a post-treatment plan to help you manage pain and discomfort and heal faster.
Do You Require Bone Grafting?
Your jaw bone may not be ready for dental implant treatment if it has thinned or weakened over time. You may require bone grafting to help stabilize and strengthen your jaw bone. We can fill the empty socket with bone grafting material and prepare the area for a dental implant.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Patients who have good oral health are most suited for dental implants. Healthy gum tissue and adequate bone allow dental implants to heal properly. Periodontal disease, teeth grinding, and smoking can interfere with the healing process. Daily brushing, flossing, and routine dental appointments are also necessary to maintaining implants.
