If you are thinking about having a missing tooth replaced, you may want to get dental implants. At our dental practice, Orangecrest Dental Group, our patients are treated by the very best dental implant dentists in the area. Just one of our expert dentists is Dr. Makbul I. Patel. When you are getting dental implants to treat tooth loss you want to be seen by a top-notch Woodcrest implant dentist, such as those at our dental practice.
Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. When a patient comes to our practice to get dental implants, our dentist will first determine whether or not the patient is a good candidate for the dental implant procedure. If it is seen that your jawbone is healthy and thick enough to hold the dental implant, and to fully heal from the dental surgery, our implant dentist will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a healing period of several months during which time your jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root will fuse to the jawbone. Once our Woodcrest implant dentist determines that the healing time is over, he will permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top of each dental implant root. At this point, the dental implant is complete, and the patient will have fully recovered from their tooth loss. They will be able to once again eat and speak in total confidence, without being worried that they will be embarrassed in any way. The patient will need to take care of their dental implant with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings. If this advice is followed, there is no reason why the dental implant will not last the patient for a lifetime.
If you want to have your tooth loss treated by one of the best implant dentists around, we strongly urge you to contact our office to make an appointment to see our Woodcrest implant dentist.
