At Spa Dental Care Hockley, we acknowledge that having a healthy and attractive smile is crucial to a person’s overall well-being. The condition of one’s teeth can significantly affect their self-confidence, self-esteem, and oral health. The absence or damage of teeth can also lead to difficulties in eating and speaking, hurting a person’s quality of life.
To address these concerns, Spa Dental Care Hockley offers dental implants as a dependable and efficient solution to restore a person’s smile.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots surgically placed into the jawbone to anchor false teeth or bridges. They provide a natural look and feel, and unlike other tooth replacement options, they don’t require the reduction of healthy teeth or the use of adhesives.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are created to mimic the appearance, feel, and performance of real teeth. They’re made to look just like your real teeth in terms of size, shape, and color for a flawless, organic result. In addition, dental implants can aid in bone preservation, avoiding the sunken appearance that can result from missing teeth.
Missing teeth can cause difficulties with speech, leading to slurring, mumbling, or difficulty pronouncing certain words. Dental implants can help to restore your ability to speak clearly and confidently without the worry of dentures slipping or shifting in your mouth.
An ideal candidate for dental implants is someone who wants a long-term, pain-free solution to missing teeth. Dental Implants are permanently fixed in place and will not move around in your mouth like dentures will, so you can eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence.
Better Oral Health
Dental implants can enhance your general oral health by stopping bone loss, lowering the risk of gum disease, and keeping the teeth around the implant in place. They are also easy to clean and maintain, with no need for special adhesives or soaking solutions.
Durability and Convenience
Dental implants are a strong and long-lasting solution that, if properly cared for and maintained, has the potential to last for many years. They are also a convenient solution, eliminating the need for messy adhesives, frequent adjustments, or frequent replacements.
Dental Implant Procedure At Spa Dental Care Hockley
At Spa Dental Care Hockley, we follow a comprehensive and personalized approach to dental implant procedures. Our process typically involves the following steps:
Initial Consultation – Evaluation of Oral Health and Medical History
Setting up a consultation with one of our skilled dentists is the first step in figuring out if dental implants are right for you. During this consultation, we will assess your oral health and medical history to see if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Factors that May Affect Candidacy for Dental Implants
Your ability to get dental implants depends on a number of factors. Among these are:
- Dental implants can only be placed successfully if there is enough bone to anchor them. Bone loss can occur for a number of reasons, including periodontal disease, and may rule you out as a candidate for dental implants.
- Successful dental implants can only be achieved with meticulous attention to oral hygiene. If you have a history of poor oral hygiene or are unable to commit to regular dental visits, you may not be a good candidate for the procedure.
- Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, may increase the risk of complications during and after dental implant surgery. We will carefully evaluate your medical history to determine whether dental implants are a safe and appropriate option for you.
- Smoking can have a negative impact on the success of dental implants. We may suggest that you stop smoking before the operation.
- Implant Placement
- The implant placement procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia. Our skilled team will carefully place the implant into the jawbone, ensuring a precise and accurate fit.
Healing and Integration
It will take a few months for the implant to bind with the jawbone after it has been placed. We will check in frequently to make sure the implant is healing correctly during this period.
The final step in getting an implant is having a dental crown placed on top of the implant after it has fused with the jawbone. The color, shape, and size of the crown are all tailored to your specific needs to create a restoration that looks and feels just like your real teeth.
