What are dental implants?

Dental implants are metal artificial tooth roots that your dentist inserts into your jawbone. The implants support artificial teeth, including crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dr. Archana Karkhanis-Lavana places the implants, which remain in your mouth long-term, even for a lifetime, to perfect a gorgeous smile.

Why should I choose dental implants?

If you’re missing permanent teeth or need an extraction because of severe tooth damage or advanced decay, the advantages of choosing dental implants include:

  • Beautiful smile
  • Clearer speech
  • Less adjacent tooth shifting
  • Easier chewing
  • Self-confidence
  • Better quality of life

Dental implants at the Family Dental Group are long-lasting, sturdy, and natural-looking. They can provide you with the smile of your dreams.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Nearly anyone with permanent tooth loss benefits from dental implants. The Family Dental Group offers bone grafting to build up your jawbone if you lack sufficient bone to support the implants.

Your dentist reviews your oral health history, treatment preferences, and cosmetic goals. They examine your gums and teeth and take digital X-rays to create an effective treatment plan.

Your restorative treatment plan will be based on how many missing teeth need to be replaced. They can replace just one, several, or an entire set.

What should I expect when receiving dental implants?

When receiving dental implants, your dentist numbs the treatment area and inserts tiny metal implants into your jaw. They digitally scan your mouth to custom-build a crown, bridge, or dentures that bond to the implants and fill in all the gaps.

In time, your jawbone heals around the implants, fusing them to your jawbone.

What happens after I have new dental implants?

After you receive dental implants:

  • Brush your teeth after each meal
  • Floss at least once daily
  • Don’t chew on hard objects
  • Have your teeth cleaned and examined every six months

Call the Family Dental Group office if you develop tooth pain or suffer damage to a natural tooth or a restoration.
