What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, typically made of titanium, that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. They are a suitable option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.  As a preferred alternative to dentures, dental implants offer a steadfast solution, bridging the gap created by missing teeth and blending seamlessly with your natural smile.

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Implant dentistry unlocks a myriad of benefits, including improved appearance, speech, and comfort. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, as they are designed to fuse with bone, becoming permanent. They enhance your ability to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without discomfort. Moreover, dental implants can provide better long-term value than conventional teeth replacement options, with the potential to last a lifetime when properly cared for.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure involves several stages, including planning, implant placement, bone growth and healing, and crown placement. Throughout the process, Dr. Mattingly works meticulously, ensuring the surgical site is prepared, and the implant is placed with utmost precision. Then, the jawbone will heal and integrate with the new implant—a phase that may take several months. Finally, the artificial tooth or teeth are fabricated and attached to the stable implant, completing the restoration.

What To Expect During Dental Implant Recovery

Recovery post-implant procedure is crucial for successful integration and functionality. Patients may experience minor discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which typically subsides with appropriate care and prescribed medications. Throughout the healing period, it’s crucial to adhere to provided guidelines, including maintaining oral hygiene and adhering to dietary recommendations. Regular check-ups with Dr. Mattingly will ensure that the implants are healing and integrating as anticipated.
