If you happen to have missing teeth or your dentures aren’t fitting properly anymore, our dentists recommend thinking about upgrading to dental implants. Dental implants are essentially small titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone in order to replace the tooth’s missing roots. Implants will take time to properly fuse with the jawbone, so in most circumstances, a temporary tooth crown will be needed. Once the jawbone fuses with the implant, the temporary crown will be removed and a natural-looking permanent crown can be placed on the implant. Picasso Smiles Dental, our dentists are able to complete the entire dental implant process, from grafting to surgery to place the implant, in our El Paso offices.
Some of the benefits of choosing dental implants include, but aren’t limited to:
Dental implants feel, look, and function in the exact same way as natural teeth.
With dental implants, you’ll still be able to eat anything you want.
Dental implants can be placed without grinding or wearing down nearby teeth.
They can also prevent a sunken-in facial appearance that’s caused by tooth loss.
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Here are some important aspects you should know about the dental implant process:
You’ll be under local anesthesia so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort.
The process can take up to nine months to finish.
Healing may take up to six months.
Dental implants have a success rate of about 90 percent with the majority of the failures being due to poor oral hygiene.
