Dental implants are replacement teeth that are installed directly into a patient’s jawline. Wayne dental implants dentist Dr. Jonathan Stone now offers this service at his modern dentist office on Lancaster Avenue. He is excited about the permanent solution that tooth implants provide, but as it's a relatively new treatment not many patients understand exactly what they are. If you have gaps due to missing teeth and are tired of toying around with dentures, learn more about implants and how they can make your life easier.
A Better Solution than Dentures
The main feature of dental implants is that they provide a much better and longer-term solution than partial or full dentures. Dentures can be unstable and ill-fitting. You have to remove them for cleaning and go into the dentist periodically to have them adjusted. With dental implants you have a secure, rooted tooth that doesn’t need to be removed -- clean it by simply brushing your teeth and flossing. You also don’t have to worry about awkward social scenarios where the dentures feel like they’re coming loose or look too artificial.
The Process of Getting Wayne Dental Implants
Dr. Stone is committed to making the process of getting dental implants as simple as possible. During the first visit your bone integrity is checked with X-rays and a physical examination. You have to have enough bone left to fully support the implant. The next visit -- or in some cases the same visit -- is when the implant is installed (anesthesia is used of course). After that, you must allow a few weeks or more for your bone tissue to completely "accept" the implant before your next appointment. The dentist will call you in for another appointment to attach the actual tooth restoration to the top of the implant.
