Top Dental Implant Questions Answered
Hello and welcome to another June edition of our oral health blog!
At New Albany Implants we specialize in the placement and restoration of dental implants, hence the name!
If you have ever experienced tooth loss as an adult, you understand just how life-changing that traumatic event can be (and not in a good way). With missing teeth, it is embarrassing to share your smile, and impossible to enjoy a meal the way that you used to.
Your looks and your health will pay the price if you don’t find a workable solution, sooner rather than later! Obviously, we think that implants are your best bet. That’s why we have built our reputation around this important service.
But we know that before you make such a big investment in your future quality of life, you might have a few questions. So, today, we will share some of the questions our patients normally ask. If you still have any other questions or concerns just ask our team when you schedule your consultation!
Will I Be In Good Hands?
No! You will have the BEST hands in the area! Over the years, Dr. Ron has invested an enormous amount of time, money and effort to develop his abilities to restore our patients’ smiles with dental implants. He studied with the legendary implant pioneers Dr. Jack Hahn and Dr. Duke Heller. So, you will get exceptional care from us!
Is The Procedure Painful?
It is a surgical procedure. So, it really depends on your threshold for pain. What we can guarantee is that we will do everything in our power to make it a pain-free and pleasant experience for you.
For one thing, your mouth will be anesthetized. So, that won’t be an issue. And beyond that, we can employ multiple options for sedation dentistry to ensure that your visit is comfortable.
Will I Have To Wait For My Teeth?
Immediate load implants are among the things that make our New Albany office so special. With the help of newfangled technology, we can place your implants and have a bridge attached during the same visit. Basically you’ll get to go home with teeth that are fixed in place until your healing is complete and your mouth is ready to receive the final restoration.
Do Dental Implants Feel Natural?
Our implants are designed to feel like your original teeth. They’re given enough time to be securely fused with your bone and are pretty much the same size of a natural root. All that is to say that no other artificial option even comes close to feeling this comfortable.
Still, it can take a little time to get used to having teeth again.
Can Implants Make Me Look Better?
Definitely. Your smile will be complete. And there will be more facial structure support (i.e. no more collapsed-looking cheeks). So, yeah, your appearance will get a boost as will your self-confidence.
Will Dental Implants Last The Rest Of My Life?
That is up to you!
Implants are built to last but they will require some maintenance, just like natural teeth. Brushing twice a day for two or more minutes, flossing and rinsing regularly, and visiting the dentist every three to six months will go a long way. They really are an investment in your future health and happiness. Truth be told, they may not only last the rest of your life, they might just allow you to live longer!
