Getting dental implants means being free from the limitations of bridges or dentures while restoring your complete smile with replacements that look, feel, and perform just like natural teeth. At the office of Grant D. Hensely DDS, it is our goal to ensure that you understand the entire process that goes into the placement of our 37064 implants so that you can see the benefits they provide; benefits that with attentive care, can last you a lifetime.
You begin with a consultation at our office. This will not only allow you to ask any questions that you have, but will contain testing to be certain that you qualify to get our 37064 dental implants. The most important requirement is that your jaw is sufficiently thick and strong, since it will need to hold in the implant. If that is not so, you can get bone grafting done to supplement your jaw bone and still make implants a reality. Your gums will also be checked to be sure they are in healthy enough condition. Our implant dentist will discuss other factors, including if you are a smoker or a diabetic, both of which may pose an obstacle to our 37064 dental implants. The procedure begins with surgically placing the post, which is made of titanium, into your jaw. It takes several months of time for your bone to grow around and fuse with the post. But when this is completed, you will have a new root that will rival the strength of those on your natural teeth. At this stage, impressions are taken so that a tooth-colored crown can be fashioned at the dental lab. It will be cemented to the top of the post, giving you a full new tooth.
That’s all it takes. So get things started by calling us right now and setting up an appointment to come in for a consultation.
