Dental Implants Before and After
Dental implants have been around for many years, but only recently have they become a viable option for the average patient. However, more and more patients are discovering the benefits of implants and are actively seeking them out as an alternative to dental bridges or dentures. You may be a candidate for dental implants if you are missing one or many teeth. Our dental implants before and after images can be a great place to start your research.
During your consultation with our experienced dentist, we can evaluate your teeth, gums, and jawbone. This enables us to better understand your needs. We will make treatment recommendations and create a plan that addresses your specific needs, and we can share dental implants before and after pictures that involve cases that are similar to yours. While your smile is unique, these pictures can give you a great idea of the results you can expect. We may also share images of comparable situations in which patients opted for bridges or dentures so that you can make an informed decision about the look and function of your smile.
Once you have browsed through our dental implants before and after gallery, we will explain the procedure. If you have any underlying dental health problems, such as periodontal disease, these will need to be addressed before we proceed with the dental implants treatment. Smokers and people with chronic health problems may need to take additional steps before undergoing the dental implant surgery to ensure the best possible results.
Treatment will begin with the actual implantation of the device. The implant will generally be made of titanium, which is biocompatible and designed to fuse with your jawbone. The bone will be left to heal, or integrate, with the implant. This process can take a few weeks to a few months, and once the bone has grown securely around the implant, we will complete your restoration. This is generally a porcelain crown, but if you have multiple missing teeth, you may opt to have multiple implants restored with a bridge or denture instead.
