For the patient, this results in a more accurate implant procedure with a shorter time in the operating chair. It also reduces the number of follow-up appointments necessary for a successful implant.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss and a great way to replace missing teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile. They can also help improve oral health by preventing gum disease and preserving the bone in your jaw.
Dental implants have many pros, including
1. Dental implants are permanent.
2. Dental implants improve your appearance.
3. Dental implants are strong and durable.
4. Dental implants help preserve your jawbone.
5. Dental implants are easy to care for.
The only real con to dental implants is the cost. Dental implants are usually more expensive than other tooth replacement options, such as bridges or dentures. But many people feel that the benefits of dental implants outweigh the cost.
When you come in for your consultation, we’ll discuss your goals and expectations for your dental implants. We’ll also take X-rays and impressions of your teeth to create a customized treatment plan.
During your procedure, Dr. Singh will place the implants into your jawbone and then attach the new teeth to them. Once the implants are placed, you will need to wait for them to heal and integrate with your jawbone before the tooth restoration can be placed.
Once the implants are in place, Dr. Singh will attach a metal post to the implant. This post will protrude from your gum line and serve as your new tooth’s base. Finally, Dr. Pavlicic will place a porcelain crown over the metal post, and voila! You have a brand new tooth that looks and functions like your natural teeth.
The entire process of getting dental implants can take several months, but the results are worth it! You will have a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you can be proud of.
