Answers to Common Questions About Dental Implants
If you are unfamiliar, dental implants are a popular treatment option that provides a permanent base for replacement teeth. Over time, the prosthesis fuses with the jawbone to create a long-term solution. We want to answer some of the most popular questions about dental implants.
Is the entire process for dental implants completed in your office?
- Yes, we are able to place and restore dental implants. This means that the entire treatment is completed in our office. This not only saves you time, but it is also a comfort to know that the same dentist and team are involved in every aspect of your treatment.
Are implants removable like dentures?
- One of the best features of dental implants is that they are permanently placed in your mouth. They provide a solid structure for the replacement teeth and look and act like natural teeth.
Are implants only used to replace a single tooth?
- No, implants can be used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth. If you are missing multiple teeth or even all of your teeth, we may recommend implant-supported dentures. This process uses strategically placed implants to support natural-looking prosthetic teeth.
Do patients have difficulty eating with dental implants?
- Patients love dental implants because they completely restore the ability to chew properly. After getting dental implants, people who had dental difficulties for many years and problems chewing certain foods are now able to eat anything they want.
