Dental Implants Q&A
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium tooth roots that support artificial teeth. Your dentist can place the implants in your jawbone to serve as a strong foundation for artificial teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. MG Dental Studio has an in-house, certified periodontist, Dr. Armen Minasyan, who specializes in placing dental implants.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
The advantages of getting dental implants at MG Dental Studio include:
- Improved speech
- No tooth gaps
- Easier chewing
- Less adjacent teeth shifting
- Improved self-esteem
- A beautiful smile
- Improved oral health
Dental implants offer the aesthetically pleasing smile you desire. They are strong, long-lasting, and can support crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants have a high success rate of 98%, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime.
Are dental implants right for me?
To find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants at MG Dental Studio, the expert team reviews your oral health history, takes dental X-rays, and examines your teeth and gums.
You may first require tooth extraction or bone grafting to make the procedure successful. You should have healthy gums and be committed to regular dental visits plus exceptional oral hygiene.
If you’re a heavy smoker, have a chronic disease, or have had radiation therapy to your neck or head, your dentist evaluates you on an individualized basis. They personalize each treatment to give you the best outcome.
What happens during dental implant placement?
The first step in getting dental implants involves placing titanium posts in your jawbone. Your dentist numbs the treatment area ahead of time so you don’t feel any pain.
After your jawbone heals and grows around the implants, which may take 6-12 weeks, your dentist places small connector posts (abutments) on the implants.
Your dentist takes impressions of or digitally scans your teeth to create new, custom-fitted artificial crowns, bridges, or dentures. They also match the color and shape of your natural teeth.
When the new teeth are ready, your provider secures them to the abutments where they can remain permanently.
How should I care for my new dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the same way you do with natural teeth. Brush them at least twice daily, floss daily, use antibacterial mouthwash if your dentist recommends it, and avoid chewing on ice and other hard objects. See the MG Dental Studio team every six months for routine dental cleanings and exams.
