A dental implant replaces a missing permanent tooth with an artificial tooth root and a crown, bridge, or denture. The implant and artificial teeth that they connect to restore an imperfect smile and improve your overall oral health. Solay Dental also offers tooth extractions if needed before implant placement.
The benefits of choosing dental implants at Solay Dental include:
Dental implants and the crowns, bridges, or dentures they attach to are sturdy, long-lasting, and highly effective for replacing unsightly or missing permanent teeth.
Solay Dental often recommends dental implants after a tooth extraction if you have a decaying or damaged tooth that’s beyond repair because of their high quality and durability.
You're likely a candidate for dental implants if you have a strong jawbone and desire replacements for missing permanent teeth. If your jawbone lacks strength or volume, undergoing bone grafting may be necessary to make you a candidate for dental implant placement.
Your dentist discusses your dental goals, reviews your oral health history, examines your mouth, and takes dental X-rays to determine which dental implants are best for you.
Your dentist numbs the treatment area and cleans it before inserting dental implants, or metal posts, into your jawbone. After the jawbone heals around your implants, or sometimes the same day, your dentist attaches custom-fitted artificial teeth to the implants to fill in gaps and repair your smile. They ensure the implants and restoration fit properly and comfortably before you head home.
After you receive dental implants, take good care of them by not chewing on hard objects and wearing a mouthguard if you play contact sports or grind your teeth. Brush your teeth after meals, floss daily, and attend six-month dental cleanings and exams at Solay Dental.
