Dental Implants: Learn More About This Popular Treatment
At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we are passionate about helping our patients improve the appearance and function of their teeth. We often see individuals who are struggling with the state of their oral health. Problems with oral health can make daily life difficult. One way we help patients restore their oral health when they need a tooth replacement is with dental implants. Dental implants have become a popular treatment option for many patients. We want to share some of the answers to some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
- Dental implants are used to replace the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root. They provide a stable base for replacement teeth. Over time, the prosthesis fuses with the jawbone to create a permanent solution.
Are Dental Implants completed in one office visit?
- Receiving a dental implant is a multi-step process that cannot be completed in one office visit. From start to finish, the treatment can take several months; however, the final result can last for many years, if not the rest of your life.
Are Dental Implants noticeable?
- One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that they resemble your natural teeth in function and appearance. We match the artificial tooth structure to your natural teeth.
Is it difficult to eat and chew with Dental Implants?
- Patients love dental implants because they restore the ability to chew properly. In fact, patients often comment that they are able to eat foods they have avoided for years due to difficulty chewing.
