Dental Implants: A Permanent Solution

Updated: Sep 28, 2023

Dental implants are a solution doctors are turning to because they provide a full smile reconstruction while providing permanent, durable teeth. Dental implants are sturdy, provide a stable jaw and facial structure, and are natural-looking and feeling. Prior to undergoing the dental implant procedure, you may need to have other treatments done to ensure you maintain a permanent reconstructed smile. Here are some procedures that may be a part of your dental implant treatment.

  1. Bone grafting is an available option if you need dental implants but have low bone density. If you are suffering from missing teeth, over time the bone that once supported these teeth will begin to deteriorate. Bone grafting will rebuild your jaw bone density to ensure the implants stay stable.

  2. Soft tissue grafting is also available prior to receiving your implants to strengthen your gums. If you suffer from a receding gum line, your implants may not be secure after placement. This is when your doctor will offer gum grafting to ensure your foundation is strong and is ready to hold the implant.

Dental implants are a great option for those who are ready for a perfect smile. Implants function as your natural teeth once had, which allows you to enjoy food again and continue your oral hygiene routine. The maintenance of your dental implants is similar to how you would care for your natural teeth. This means you will need to brush and floss your new teeth regularly to keep your mouth healthy and clean. Also, maintaining regular checkup appointments with your dentist is important. If you are ready to update your smile and get rid of your failing or missing dentition, contact your dentist for a consultation. During this appointment, your dentist will assess your oral cavity to ensure you are a candidate for implants. If you need prior treatments, this is when your dentist will let you know what procedures you will need prior to receiving your implants.
