Why Dental Implants?

There are many benefits to dental implants that make them a superior choice for teeth replacement:

  • First and foremost, dental implants will improve your smile because they will look like your own teeth.
  • The implants fuse with your bone, creating a strong anchor point so they become permanent.
  • They don’t affect nearby teeth so more of your own teeth remain intact, improving your oral health.
  • They function like your other teeth whereas dentures slide while chewing food.
  • Implants improve your speech and comfort and are better than dentures, which slip within your mouth and cause you to slur words.
  • The implants will alleviate jaw pain caused by an improper bite, making it much easier to eat.
  • The implants are more convenient (no need for messy adhesives to keep dentures in place) and are very durable, lasting a lifetime with proper care.

Bone Regrowth?

Yes, your bone can be re-grown or preserved. Grafting it into the extraction sockets at the time of a tooth loss can help preserve bone volume needed for implant placement. There are surgical techniques available today that regenerates the bone which has been lost.

Dental implants fuse to the bone, which needs stimulation to stay healthy and prevent further loss, and preserve it. Only one year after tooth loss, the width of a bone decreases by 25%. Lose more teeth and you lose more function. This leads to aesthetic and functional problems such as losing the alveolar bone. At that point, the basal bone beneath it begins to melt away.

Procedure

On your first visit, Dr. Welch will have a series of x-rays and molds taken to properly plan your surgery. The first procedure places the implant in the jawbone by gently creating a small space in the bone.

It takes time to heal from the surgery and allow the implant to be incorporated into the bone. It is important for the implant to be robust and become a lasting anchor for your new tooth. Dr. Welch will then place the new crown or artificial tooth, which may take a few adjustments before becoming permanently attached.

Patients say they experience mild to moderate pain while recovering from the procedure. It is recommended that you eat soft foods for one to four weeks and avoid hot foods and beverages during that time.

Maintenance

Even dental implants need to be kept healthy with regular maintenance as we use special instruments to clean them without damaging their metal surface beneath the gum. Of course, it is important for you to keep brushing and flossing every day to keep bacteria from building up.

Make sure we monitor your implants to ensure it remains stable and everything is functioning properly. If you take good care of your oral health, the implant can last for many years. Call our office today to learn about your options for dental implants in Summerlin.
