Today’s post will address the preparation needed for dental implants.
Getting ready for a tooth implant includes understanding what it is, whether you are a candidate, how to prepare for the surgery, precautions to take throughout the healing process and what to expect once the implant is complete.
What is a dental implant?
Simply stated, a dental implant is a permanent post fused to the jawbone with attached abutment and artificial tooth. A tooth implant can also support a dental bridge or denture.
Who can benefit from dental implants?
Ideal candidates for dental implants include patients with missing teeth, dentures, or bridges who have healthy oral tissue, adequate bone structure, and proper health for bone healing. Our patients come from all backgrounds and have a wide range of dental troubles. For many, dental implants are a phenomenal solution.
