Learn More About Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth
Willow Tree Dental Restores Dental Implants in Morgantown, WV
Dental implants are permanent, attached false teeth that replace partials, bridges, or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone and a prosthetic tooth, known as a crown, is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth. Treatment can be finished in three to five visits over the space of about four to 12 months. If you want to learn more about dental implants, call Willow Tree Dental in Morgantown, WV, at (304) 598-0400 to schedule an appointment.
Aftercare for Dental Implants
After the placement of your new dental implants, it is important to keep up with good oral hygiene. This includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing your mouth as usual, along with keeping up with dental exams and teeth cleaning. Bacteria can still affect the implants, so it is crucial to keep your mouth clean to avoid infection. After the procedure, your dentist at Willow Tree Dental will give you instructions to follow for the following weeks after the procedure. This may include pain management, cleaning instructions, and things to avoid right after surgery. If you have any questions or concerns, we will be happy to answer them.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a great alternative to other restorative options as they are permanent and allow your mouth to function normally. Patients with good oral health, healthy gums, and strong bones make good candidates for dental implants. Those with chronic illnesses or who have bone loss should consult with their dentist before making a decision for dental implants.
