If you have lost one or more adult teeth, our dentist may recommend a dental implant. A dental implant is made up of a titanium implant post, which is surgically placed in the jawbone, a dental restoration, like a dental crown, and a dental abutment, which connects the post and the restoration. Before you choose a dental implant for your smile, you may wish to ask a few questions, like the ones below. We are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have to put your concerns at ease.
How long do dental implants last?
With proper care, dental implants can be a permanent solution. This is because the implant post is designed to fuse with the jawbone after it is placed.
How do dental implants affect my oral health?
Dental implants can preserve the health of your jawbone because the implant posts stimulate the bone. A preserved jawbone contributes to your oral health and to the appearance of your smile.
How do I take care of dental implants?
Unlike some dental restorations, dental implants don’t need to be removed at night to be cleaned. Simply brush and floss your dental implants along with your other teeth. In addition, make sure that you visit Johnson Ranch Dental for your routine dental cleanings and exams.
