Getting Ready For A Dental Implant?

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma, AZ, we believe everyone deserves a sensational smile. This blog post concentrates on the preparation necessary for a dental implant.

What is a dental implant?

Simply stated, a dental implant is a titanium post placed into the jawbone with attached abutment and artificial tooth. An implant can also support a dental bridge or denture.

Who can benefit from dental implants?

Ideal candidates for a dental implant include patients with missing teeth, dentures, or bridges who have healthy oral tissue, adequate bone structure, and proper health for bone healing. For most of our patients who seek tooth restoration, a dental implant is a great option.

How do I care for dental implants?

Caring for implants is not much different than caring for natural teeth. Be sure to avoid damaging, harmful habits such as chewing hard items (ice or candy), and seek treatment for teeth grinding if it is a problem for you. See your dentist regularly. Keep the implant and gum tissue around the implant clean just as you (hopefully) do with your existing teeth.

The total process can take a few months from initial consultation to the placement of the abutment and artificial tooth.
