Dental implants have changed the face of dentistry. Unlike most other restorations, dental implants look and function just like natural teeth – so you can bite, chew and speak with ease. Plus, once they’re in place they are meant to last a lifetime!
Now that people have begun recognize the many benefits of dental implants, the procedure is becoming commonplace. In fact, this year alone more than one million people will get dental implants.
The vast majority of patients experience no problems with implant surgery. You can expect that your new teeth will be virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth – both for yourself and others. However, as with any surgical procedure, selecting the right doctor is a key factor in getting an outcome you can smile about.
Implant placement generally requires several office visits. Your actual course of treatment will depend on the specific procedure used in your case. The procedure used to install the implants will affect length of treatment time, but in most cases the steps of placement are quite similar. The end result is the same: permanent, functional, natural-looking teeth!
