What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant replaces the tooth root with a titanium abutment that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge, or crown. Dental implants might be an option for people who have lost one or more teeth from injury, decay, or periodontal disease.
What to Expect When You Get Dental Implants
After the tooth has been knocked out or extracted and given time to heal properly, the implant is ready to be placed deep inside the jaw bone. The oral surgeon will give you instructions prior to the procedure for your safety and a local sedative will be given to your tooth to aid in your comfort. The doctor will drill a hole into your jaw bone, which feels similar to having a cavity drilled.
After the dental implant treatment is completed you will be sent home with another set of instructions that will aid in your teeth and gums healing properly. For example, you will be asked to avoid hard or hot foods to avoid damage to the affected area while you are still recovering from the oral sedative. There will also be follow-up appointments to make ensure your full recovery.
Our friendly and professional staff will be here to answer any questions you may have along the way. Your comfort and speedy recovery is our main goal at East El Paso Dentist. Feel free to contact us at any time at our El Paso dental office!
Cost of Implants
Dental implants last longer than other tooth replacement options such as dentures or bridges, which make them more cost-effective. The implant should last a lifetime with proper upkeep. Dental implants are also made from titanium, which is a bio-compatible material that bonds to the jaw, making the bone stronger. This strength also gives you the sturdiness your teeth need to feel natural while chewing.
