While we try to maintain our natural teeth for as long as possible, sometimes, life happens. You can lose your tooth through injury, infections, or medical conditions that compromise your oral health. All is not lost if you live in Mesa, Arizona, and have lost a tooth. With dental implants from My Time Dental Centers, you have a tooth replacement that acts, feels, and looks like your natural tooth.
The dental implant process differs from one person to another. Several factors bring the difference. For instance, the number of teeth missing, whether you need an extraction or if you have sufficient jaw bone, can make the difference in the dental implant process. However, whatever the case, a typical dental implant process incorporates the following steps:
Once your implant is installed, the rest is aftercare maintenance to ensure the treatment is successful. Regular dental checkups with a dentist combined with daily oral hygiene at home are enough for long-lasting implants.
While many dental offices claim to offer dental implant services, the reality is that most have only basic skills. Installing a tooth replacement meant to last for life requires experience, training, and expertise in dental implant surgery. This way, even if your implant surgery becomes complex (for instance, you need bone grafting), your dentist can handle the entire process without referring you to other specialists unknown to you.
