What is a Dental Implant?
At Sudbury Dental, we offer a range of restorative options to replace missing teeth. One of our most popular and sought-after options are dental implants. These implants are made from titanium and last a lifetime once healed properly. They replace an entire missing tooth as well as create a secure fitting for a denture prosthetic.
Why might you require a Dental Implant?
We typically recommend dental implants to our patients who are missing teeth. The procedure is able to replace this missing dentition without having to compromise the surrounding teeth. You won’t need a partial denture and can benefit from a restoration that’s made to last for an entire lifetime. Implants can even be placed strategically throughout the mouth to hold a denture in place.
What makes you a candidate for the Dental Implant procedure?
The dental implant procedure is easy and ideal for most patients. It’s important that you have adequate bone mass within the area receiving the implant post. If you suffer from a medical condition that prevents your body from healing after surgeries, we may need to recommend other procedures. Most of our patients here at Sudbury Dental who would like an implant are successfully able to have one or more placed.
What should you expect during Dental Implant surgery?
Dr. Kang will provide you with either a local anesthetic or complete sedation before the procedure. The gums are slightly cut to expose the bone underneath. The implant post is inserted deep into the bone and allowed to bond naturally with your body. You’ll come back into our practice to have the implant checked periodically. Once healed, a dental crown is placed on the implant itself to enhance your smile. The implant won’t need to be repaired or replaced once it has been given time to fuse and bond with the bone of your jaw. Implants are great options for patients of all ages and varying medical needs.
