No longer do you have to settle for missing teeth. Whether a single missing tooth or you are wearing a removable denture, dental implant treatments can be customized to address various dental circumstances. Dental implants have been around for decades, but the protocol has been perfected in recent years leading to widespread popularity. Allen Dental Center offers exemplary implant services, ensuring care for you from start to finish throughout the entire process.
What are implants?
Simply put, a dental implant is a surgical fixture placed in the jaw bone and then allowed to beat so it can assimilate into the surrounding bone. The implant is typically made of titanium and mimics the natural root of a tooth. Once the implant is placed, a healing period of 3-6 months is required before the final prosthesis can be attached. This final prosthesis can take a variety of forms ranging from individual teeth to situations where several implants support an entire arch of teeth. The following are the different dental implant systems we offer:
- Single dental implants
- All-on-4 dental implants
- Hybrid dental implants
- Implant retained dentures
How do I start?
To begin the process of receiving dental implants, you will first need to set up a consultation with one of our doctors. At the initial consultation, the doctor will thoroughly review your dental history as well as take a three-dimensional image of the jaw to assess the quality of the bone. This information will help the doctor determine if you are a good candidate. If your situation is ideal, the doctor will then review specific details on when particular options are available to you as well as any other adjusted treatment that could be essential to ensure a good outcome.
How long do they last?
With proper care and maintenance, the answer is for a very long time. Several studies have shown implants typically last well over 20 years with a success rate of over 95%. With proper hygiene and routine check-ups, you can be confident that the implants you receive will last a long time under the care of our dentists.
