Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are metal posts that anchor crowns, bridges, or dentures. They replace teeth that are missing or need extraction due to severe damage or decay. Mamkin Dentistry Aesthetic & Restorative Center offers an array of dental implants that match your desired outcome. The implants and the teeth they bond to look and feel like real teeth.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental implants available at Mamkin Dentistry Aesthetic & Restorative Center provide the following benefits:

  • Beautiful teeth
  • No tooth gaps
  • Natural-looking smile
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier chewing
  • Reduced adjacent tooth shifting
  • Gorgeous results
  • Self-confidence

Dental implants are strong and long-lasting. They can perfect the look of your smile and reduce the risk of complications. 

What are the different types of dental implants?

Dental implants can replace just one missing permanent tooth, multiple missing teeth, or all your natural teeth. All-on-4® dental implants replace all of your top or bottom teeth using four dental implant posts and dentures. 

The type of dental implants that are best for you depend on your treatment preferences, dental history, and desired results. 

Are dental implants right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants, your Mamkin Dentistry Aesthetic & Restorative Center provider examines your teeth and gums, views the results of your dental X-rays, and tailors a plan that’s best suited for you. You might first need a tooth extraction, bone grafting, or both of these common dental procedures before receiving implants. 

What happens during dental implant placement?

Your dentist numbs the treatment area before inserting metal posts into your jawbone. After the bone has a chance to heal around the implants, your provider creates custom crowns, bridges, or dentures that attach to the implants. They ensure your dental implants and new teeth fit properly and comfortably. 

How should I care for my new implants?

Take good care of dental implants by not chewing on hard objects, brushing and flossing regularly, and attending dental checkups and cleanings at least every six months. Call the Mamkin Dentistry Aesthetic & Restorative Center office if your implants get damaged.
