Dental Implants in Albuquerque
Advanced Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry
Dental implants are assured of giving you results that last a long time, with the most amount of comfort. They are also crucial in preserving the bone in your jawline, which then supports the rest of your teeth. Normally, this bone deteriorates when you lose your teeth, decreasing the entire stability of your mouth. However, implants are amazing at safeguarding this bone, leading your mouth to be better protected overall.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
The steps of receiving your dental implant at Honest Tooth Family Dentistry may involve the following:
- An examination to obtain x-rays and models of your teeth and mouth as reference points for the procedure.
- Extracting the damaged tooth, followed by a small incision into the gum. Afterward, a small hole is made in the jawbone where the implant is to be placed. An abutment is then screwed onto the implant, on which a temporary, artificial tooth is placed.
- This temporary tooth will then get stitched up with dissolvable stitches and stay in place until the permanent tooth is available.
- After the surgery, you will follow up with us in a few days. You will be encouraged to stay on a soft food diet for several weeks and to refrain from caffeine or tobacco consumption.
- Once the implant site has finished healing and the implants have completely stabilized, the temporary teeth are removed and replaced with your new set of teeth.
