You can See The Look And Feel of Natural Teeth with Dental Implants.
The loss of one or more teeth can have a major impact on the function and shape of your mouth and the appearance of your smile:
1.Missing teeth can change the shape of your mouth and the look of your face.
2.Gaps in your teeth can impair your ability to eat certain foods.
3.The spaces left by missing teeth can reduce the attractiveness of your smile and diminish your sense of confidence.
Modern dentistry enables us to replace several or all of a patient’s teeth by anchoring dental implants to a fixed bridge. The end result is natural-looking teeth that allow patients to regain the full function of their mouth.
Dr. Tehrani has many years of experience and hundreds of doing Implant surgery to helping patients realize the benefits of replacement teeth that mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.
As with all of our dental procedures, we strive to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment for our dental implant therapy. Contact us today to learn how dental implants can improve your smile and your life.
What should I expect if my dentist and I decide dental implants are right for me?
The placement of dental implants is a multi-step process that typically takes between 6 and 9 months to complete. It begins with a surgical procedure during which a titanium rod is placed where a previous natural tooth root once was. The gums are sutured shut over the implant, where is will stay for several months while it heals and begins fusing with the surrounding bone. Due to the nature of implant placement and its average procedure time of between 1 and 2 hours, you’ll be sedated and/or anesthetized for the duration of the treatment. At the conclusion of the healing period, you’ll return to be fitted for permanent crowns and have them placed.
What type of post-treatment care will I require?
It is normal to experience some discomfort, including bruising and swelling following a dental implant procedure. However, inflammation and pain may be managed with over-the-counter medications or pain medication as prescribed by Dr. Tehrani. You may be asked to eat only soft foods for approximately 1 weeks until the surgical site heals.
