Dental Implant Treatment
A dental implant actually mimics your natural tooth by replacing the root with a titanium implant post and replacing your tooth with a custom dental crown. Because dental implants integrate with your natural bone, it is usually the most effective and stable solution for your tooth replacement.
Dental implants require a few steps to complete:
- Healing process
Most patients tolerate dental implant surgery very well and experience little discomfort. Your dental implant needs time to fully integrate into your bone, a process called osseointegration. This can take three to four months and your patience will be worth the wait!
Once the healing process is complete, we will work with our skilled local dental lab to create a dental implant crown that matches your smile perfectly. Dr. Dhoon will ensure that you have a comfortable fit and proper function.
Caring for Your Dental Implant
Caring for dental implants is easy! You can brush, floss, and take care of your implant just like a natural tooth. Regular dental exams and professional dental cleanings will ensure that your implant is stable and your gums remain healthy. By taking proper care of your dental implant, you can expect years of comfortable service.
