Now that spring is finally here, there couldn’t be a better time to undergo a major transformation, one that involves a renewal of both your health and appearance. We’re talking about coming to our Kennewick, WA office for a life-changing dental implants procedure. Keep reading to hear some of the commonly asked questions around this increasingly popular restorative dentistry solution, and then give us a call at [phone] to make it happen for you.
How Do Implants Work?
Dental implants are essentially replacement roots that get inserted into your jawbone to serve as an anchor of sorts for when they get restored with lifelike “teeth.” There is a minor surgical procedure that takes place right here in our office and totally chages everything that follows for you.
What Kind Of Implants Are Available?
Some dentists only place implants while others only restore them. But we are a full-service restorative dentistry shop. That’s because our own Dr. Jeff Morgan, a member of the International Dental Implant Association, does the whole job in-house.
Ultimately, this means you’ll save time, hassle, and expense.
Plus, Dr. Morgan can oversee advanced procedures that involve attaching full arches of replacement teeth to as few as four implants. And we also offer mini dental implants for anyone lacking the bone density required for traditonal implants. If you are a good candidate, all that matters is that we connect you with the type that works best for your situation.
Does The Implant Surgery Hurt?
Short answer: no. It is a simple two-step surgical procedure. We will do everything in our power to make it a pain-free and pleasant experience for you. No matter which procedure you go with for your implants, you’ll be able to remain comfortable throughout with the help of an effective local anesthesia. You can also request relaxation dentistry services (i.e. dental sedation) if you’d prefer.
Are Dental Implants Comfortable?
Our implants are crafted to feel like your natural teeth. They’re given enough time to securely fuse with your jawbone and are the same size of a real root. No other artificial option even comes close to feeling this comfortable. After a while, you won’t be able to tell the difference.
Will Implants Restore My Appearance?
Definitely! Your smile will be made whole again because there won’t be any holes between teeth. And there will be more facial structure support (no more sunken-in look for you). As such, your appearance will definitely get a boost as will your self-confidence. Plus, you will get most of your biting power back, which will allow you to eat the foods that make you feel better and look better!
Are Dental Implants A Permanent Solution?
Here’s the honest answer: modern dental implants can last for decades, but how long they last depends on your willingness to take care of them! They will require upkeep, just like natural teeth.
Brushing twice a day for two or more minutes, flossing and rinsing regularly, and visiting our dentist’s office every 3-6 months will help them remain in excellent condition.
Obviously you’d want them to be a permanent solution, but because they help you in your quest to become healthier, they will quite possibly add years to your life, which is really what it’s all about.
