Dental Implant Treatment
Dr. White works with a master ceramist to ensure that the dental crowns that top the dental implants are stable and strong. Dr. White and his dental team will assess your oral health and review your budget and goals with you before choosing the appropriate treatment. He will use an x-ray used for the placement of the dental implants. After he maps out their placement, Dr. White will insert the titanium posts into the jawbone. After the post fuses to the bone tissue during a healing period of 3 to 6 months, a permanent abutment and dental crown are added. Following treatment, you can brush and floss your teeth normally and enjoy your fuller smile.
Dental Implant FAQs
Do dental implants hurt?
Dr. White will use anesthetic to numb the treated area during the procedure. Dental implants require a healing period of 3 to 6 months, during which they fuse with bone tissue in the jaw. You may feel some pain after the treatment, but call our office if your pain exceeds several days.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last patients for up to 20 years with the right dental care. Brush and floss regularly, and schedule regular dental cleanings in our office to help you maintain a healthy smile.
How soon can you receive dental implants after a tooth extraction?
Sometimes dental implants can be placed in the same office visit as a tooth extraction. Typically, it will take three to six months of healing before a dental implant can be placed. However, patients should not wait too long to replace a tooth or teeth because multiple aesthetic and oral health problems can arise.
