Dr. Griffin from Newport News, VA is here blogging today to explain the dental implant process and what you will need to do to get this procedure done. It is imperative to regulate proper care for our teeth and gums if we want to achieve good oral health and hygiene. We cannot do that if we have missing teeth because those spaces are mini- open invitations to the bacteria, decay and infections that love to sit in the mouth. By having the gum tissue and jaw bone completely exposed, we are speeding up the process of gum disease and destruction of the alveolar bone in the mouth.
If you have teeth that have rot due to neglect of general oral hygiene or missing teeth, you should consider dental implants. Another reason to save your teeth and gums is because it can lead to horrible and deadly diseases as a result of inflammation or infection in the mouth.
We want to make sure that you are well- educated on the process of dental implants and have all of your questions answered. If you have any questions that are not answered in this article, visit the Dental Implant Info page or give us a call at 714-421-4722.
The first step to take would be to call us to set up an initial consultation to determine whether or not you qualify for this procedure.
In order for the dental implant process to be successful, you must have a sufficient amount of jaw bone in order for the osseointegration to work. This is when the dentist gently places titanium on the jawbone to lay the foundation of the implants. Once this is done, the patient must let the jaw bone recover for at least 4-6 months to make sure that the procedure was favorable.
(See the Bone Graft Info page if you do not originally qualify for the procedure)
You will then go in to see the doctor again to have the actual implants put in and then you are done! The doctor will simply insert the tooth- colored crowns into the titanium slots; we make sure that these implants match the exact color and sizing of your remaining natural teeth. It really is that easy; it is a painless and simple process that leaves you with a gorgeous and complete smile that is not inviting to decay or bacteria.
Our state- of- the art technology allows us to measure the exact sizing of your natural teeth in accordance to your facial dimensions to ensure that these implants look, fit and feel great in your mouth. We also make sure to match the specific coloring and contrast of the implants to match your original teeth so no one will be able to tell you that you have false teeth. You may even forget that you got it done and you will so impressed with the realistic but flawless appearance that they will have in your smile.
