A dental implant is a cosmetic substitute for the tooth canal upon which a dental crown can be fixed. Most dental implants are made of bio compatible material such as titanium, alloy & ceramic, etc. and is available in different sizes, textures and shapes to suit patients’ mouth and existing teeth.
Advantages of Dental Implants
The key advantage of dental implants is the fact that they do not need the removal of adjacent teeth (needed for fixed bridges) when substituting for a tooth. Dental implants improve oral health by acting as a natural tooth, and most importantly they look like natural teeth, improving aesthetics.
When is the best time to get a dental implant?
The best time to get a dental implant depends from patient to patient. For some it maybe instant and for some it can take up to four to six months. Dr. Pollack and his staff can determine the ideal timing in your first dental appointment.
Common myths on dental implants
One implant for one tooth. This is wrong. Many think dental implants are one-to-one, but there have been many cases of full mouth dentures.
Implant surgery is painful. This is wrong. Implant surgery is only painful as much as wisdom teeth removal. And even that can be further reduced by using various sedation techniques we practice at our dental in las vegas.
You don’t need to brush dental implants. This is wrong. You need to care about your dental implants by maintaining good oral hygiene. Even high blood sugar levels (diabetes) can negatively effect dental implants.
