Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option that use posts that are surgically implanted into your jawbone to support porcelain crowns. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or an entire arch, that is, a whole row of teeth, dental implants can give you a secure, confident smile.
We know how important replacing missing teeth is to your self-confidence and emotional and mental wellness. But, did you know that it’s just as important to your oral health? Replacing missing teeth really is a concern of long-term oral health.
There are numerous benefits to dental implants. Aside from restoring your smile with natural- looking, secure appliances and boosting your confidence, there is a whole host of other benefits to consider when weighting your tooth-replacement options.
If you want to restore your smile with dental implants, you’re likely a good candidate. You must have enough jawbone to support the implant post itself, but if you do and have generally good dental hygiene, dental implants are likely a great option for you. Your Austin dentist at Paradigm Dental will help you determine whether or not implants are right for you.
Getting dental implants usually takes a few visits. Although we have the capacity to fabricate your crowns in one day with our in-house lab, your implants themselves will need to heal. At your first appointment, Dr. Shalaby will implant the post into your jawbone. Once placed, your implants will need to fuse to your jawbone through a process called osteointegration.
Once your jawbone is healed, you will come back to our Austin dental office to get your porcelain crowns placed on top of your implants. Because your crowns are custom made in our in-house lab, you can expect handcrafted workmanship, high-
quality materials, and a truly customized crown.
When you go in for your dental implants consultation, it might be helpful to come mentally and emotionally prepared. Missing teeth can be emotionally distressing, especially if you need to have more removed before you can restore your smile. Managing expectations is one of the best ways to prepare for your dental implants. If you have any concerns about the process or recovery, our dentists are always available to you to help you through this process.
This is not always a one-day procedure, and there is an adjustment period. Our whole team at Paradigm Dental will work hard to ensure that you know what to expect, how to manage your expectations, and how to deal with any potential bumps in the road. Our concierge experience gives you access to our expert providers are unparalleled care whenever you need it.
