Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that act as the roots of teeth, supporting prosthetics and helping fill gaps in your smile. With implants, you can replace one missing tooth or an entire missing set of top or bottom teeth.

Since implants are so sturdy and durable, they allow prosthetics such as crowns, bridges, or dentures to function essentially just like natural teeth. At A Caring Dental Group, the team offers innovative Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. mini dental implants that differ slightly from traditional-style dental implants.

How are mini dental implants placed?

Mini dental implants are placed quickly and easily. A Caring Dental Group’s team will use a local anesthesia or light sedation to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, your dentist strategically places the small implant into your jawbone.

The implant protrudes slightly from your gum tissue and provides a strong support system for securing replacement teeth. This minimally invasive surgery requires no sutures and also doesn’t entail the typical months of healing that traditional-style implants do.

You can leave the office with a revamped smile, as A Caring Dental Group attaches your prosthetic to the implant right away.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

The mini dental implants that A Caring Dental Group specializes in provide a variety of key benefits, including:

  • Improved chewing, speech, and digestion
  • A boost in self-confidence that comes with an enhanced smile
  • Placement that involves a gentle, non-surgical approach
  • Affordability, as they cost far less than traditional-style implants
  • Can support a host of prosthetics, such as dentures, crowns, or bridges
  • Can prevent bone loss and restore facial appearance

Dental implants are a superior tooth replacement method to removable dentures or bridges that are bonded to neighboring teeth. Implant-supported replacement teeth won’t slip or slide around inside your mouth at all.

How long do dental implants last?

As long as you take excellent care of your implants, there’s no reason they can’t last a lifetime. This means you need to brush and floss diligently while also maintaining your regularly scheduled cleanings. A Caring Dental Group needs to be able to monitor how well you care for your implants, so regular visits are crucial.
