Why Choose Neosmile Dental Care for Dental Implants?

Start To Finish Convenience

When someone chooses to get dental implants with us, they can rest assured that they’ll be able to work with the same trusted team throughout the entire process. Dr. Krunal Patel will perform the implant placement procedure right here at NeoSmile Dental Care, and once a patient’s mouth has had time to heal, they’ll return so Dr. Patel can attach their brand new restorations. This approach saves patients’ time, money, and stress because they don’t have to bounce between different dental offices to get everything they need.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Unlike traditional tooth replacements that only bring back the visible part of the tooth (the crown), implants go a step further and restore the underlying root as well. A tiny titanium post is inserted directly into the jawbone to mimic the root structure, and this provides the foundation for a new crown, bridge, or denture. This approach has several advantages compared to traditional treatments:

Indications for Dental Implants

If you’re interested in getting dental implants, the first step is to come see Dr. Krunal Patel for a consultation. At this appointment, they’ll examine your remaining teeth, jaw, and gums to make sure you’re a qualified candidate for the treatment. Typically, patients need relatively good dental health before the procedure can begin. Once a patient is approved, our dentists will help them choose from one of the following restorative options:

Missing One Tooth

Traditional bridges require the teeth surrounding a missing tooth to be filed down in order to hold the prosthetic, meaning healthy dental structure has to be sacrificed. With a dental implant, however, a single root and crown can be placed between two teeth without them being reshaped at all.

Missing Multiple Teeth

In addition to placing multiple crowns throughout the mouth, implants can also provide a base for dental prosthetics. A partial denture can fill gaps throughout the mouth like the piece of a puzzle, while a bridge can replace consecutive missing teeth using just two posts. Compared to traditional bridges and dentures, implanted ones have a much stronger hold.

Missing All Teeth

All it takes is just four to six strategically placed implant roots to restore an entire row of teeth using a custom-made denture. With implant dentures, patients never have to deal with the slippage and instability common with removable dentures, plus they’ll enjoy a much stronger bite as well.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Like we touched on above, dental implants can be used in a variety of ways to help patients dealing with varying degrees of tooth loss. Because of this, the overall cost of the treatment largely depends on a patient’s specific situation. While implants do tend to cost more upfront compared to other traditional options, they are a solution that’s designed to last for decades. Regular tooth replacements typically have to be completely redone every five to seven years, but with implants, patients are often able to trust the same prosthetic for the rest of their life with minimal maintenance, helping them save money in the end.

Dental Implant FAQs

Do you plan to get dental implants in Spring House? If so, you’ve chosen wisely – these prosthetic teeth will restore your smile quickly and effectively! That said, knowing their basic facts is still a good idea. Doing so will help boost your confidence with treatment. As for where to start, Neosmile Dental Care has you covered: below are some answers to popular implant questions. By reading them, you’ll understand your new chompers. If you don’t find the wanted details, though, call us to learn more!

Does Getting Dental Implants Hurt?

You can rest assured: Getting dental implants doesn’t hurt. Our dental team works to ensure the placement is smooth and comfortable.

Our main approach will be to numb your mouth before surgery. Given the jawbone has few nerve endings, a local anesthetic will keep you from feeling pain during placement. You’ll likely be sedated, too, lowering your body’s ability to sense discomfort.

Admittedly, your mouth may be sore for a few days post-treatment. This symptom, though, is easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. You can also reduce potential swelling with a cold compress. Still, call our office if the ache worsens after two or three days.

Do Dental Implants Decay?

Dental implants never decay; they’re artificial and thus can’t get cavities. However, you’ll need to keep up with your oral hygiene regardless.

You see, the teeth and gums surrounding your implants are still at risk. Without care, your other pearly whites could decay and suffer their own cavities. Similarly, bacteria might infect your gum tissue and cause it to recede or ache. The risk of implant failure will increase if any of these issues occur.

Fortunately, standard oral care is enough to keep these problems at bay. So, then, remember to brush your teeth (implants included) twice daily, floss them once daily, and rinse them with mouthwash as needed.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from Dental Implant Surgery?

Overall, it usually doesn’t take long to recover from implant placement. Your new teeth need a few months to fuse with your jaw, but you can resume normal activities the day after surgery. Just remember to take over-the-counter pain relievers as directed.

That said, you should still be careful in the coming days. You’ll want to avoid strenuous exercise for the first week after placement, as you’d delay healing otherwise. Plus, ensure any bleeding or swelling stops after the first few days. If they don’t, it’d be best for you to return to the dentist’s office.

How Successful Are Dental Implants?

Ultimately, dental implants are highly successful as tooth replacements. When placed by a skilled professional, they have a long-term success rate of over 95%!

Granted, whether your implants succeed will depend on various factors. One is your implants’ location, as some teeth strain more from chewing than others. Others, meanwhile, range from diet and oral hygiene to the frequency of dental checkups.

Raising the odds of your implants’ success is simple enough. By giving them proper oral care and avoiding problem foods (especially crunchy and sticky stuff), they’ll likely work for many years to come. Failure becomes even less likely if you refrain from bad oral habits like smoking and teeth grinding.
