Considering Dental Implants?

Transcript of the video: Considering Dental Implants? Here’s What You Need to Know

Dr. Hanson - What would you say to someone who is thinking about getting dental implants?

What I would say to somebody who’s thinking about dental implants is to check out my website. On my website, I have a free pricing guide and lots of information where you can become educated about dental implants. Please consider scheduling a free consultation. Either call my office or message my office through our website. I will personally spend the time with you to examine and find out the best solution for you.

When you’re looking for the right dental professional for dental implants, you need to know that it is an advanced procedure. You’re going to want to find a doctor and a clinic that is both trained in dental implants and has experience treating many cases, including the most advanced and complicated ones. You should also look for someone who uses 3D technology and intraoral scanning, as these providers have invested the time and resources into being the best they can be to give you the best experience and results possible.

Some places you go to for a consultation, you don’t even necessarily meet the doctor, and I feel terribly about that. I meet 100% of my patients at their free consultation because I want to understand their situation and where they want to go and how we can help them get there. I love doing consultations, meeting new people, and finding solutions for their smiles.

Considering Dental Implants? Here’s What You Need to Know

Are you thinking about getting dental implants? Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. At Brownstown Dental Care, we want to ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. Dr. Ben Hanson and his experienced team are here to guide you through every step of the process.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They are made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration. This creates a strong and stable foundation for the replacement teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

There are several benefits to choosing dental implants over other tooth replacement options:

  • Durability: Implants are designed to last many years, often a lifetime with proper care.
  • Functionality: They function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile confidently.
  • Aesthetics: Implants look and feel like your own teeth, providing a natural appearance.
  • Bone Health: Implants help prevent bone loss in the jaw, maintaining your facial structure.

Finding the Right Dental Professional

Choosing the right dentist for your dental implant procedure is crucial. Here are some key factors to consider:

  • Experience and Training: Look for a dentist with specialized training and extensive experience in dental implants. Dr. Ben Hanson at Brownstown Dental Care has treated numerous cases and is skilled in performing even the most complex procedures.
  • Advanced Technology: A dental practice equipped with the latest technology can provide more accurate diagnoses and better outcomes. We utilize 3D imaging and intraoral scanning to plan and execute precise implant placements.
  • Personalized Care: At Brownstown Dental Care, Dr. Hanson meets with all patients personally during their free consultation. This ensures that he understands your unique needs and can create a customized treatment plan.

The Consultation Process

Your journey to a new smile begins with a free consultation at our office in Brownstown, MI. During this visit, Dr. Hanson will:

  • Examine Your Oral Health: A thorough examination will be conducted to assess your dental health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for implants.
  • Discuss Your Goals: We will talk about your expectations and goals for the procedure, ensuring we are aligned in achieving the best possible outcome.
  • Create a Treatment Plan: Based on the examination and discussion, Dr. Hanson will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

The Procedure

The dental implant procedure typically involves several stages:

  1. Initial Consultation: As mentioned, this includes a thorough examination and treatment planning.
  2. Implant Placement: During this surgical phase, the implant is placed into the jawbone. This is usually done under local anesthesia.
  3. Healing Period: After placement, the implant needs time to integrate with the jawbone. This healing period can take several months.
  4. Abutment Placement: Once the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment (a connector) is placed on top of the implant.
  5. Crown Placement: Finally, a custom-made crown is attached to the abutment, completing the restoration.

Post-Procedure Care

Proper care is essential to ensure the longevity and success of your dental implants. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Maintain Good Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss your teeth regularly to keep the implant and surrounding areas clean.
  • Visit Your Dentist Regularly: Schedule regular check-ups and cleanings to monitor the health of your implants.
  • Avoid Hard Foods: Refrain from chewing on hard items like ice or hard candies that could damage the implants.
  • Quit Smoking: Smoking can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of implant failure.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

Are dental implants painful? The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia, so you should not feel pain during the surgery. Some discomfort and swelling may occur afterward, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

How long do dental implants last? With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular dental visits and good oral hygiene are key to maintaining their longevity.

Am I a candidate for dental implants? Most people who are in good health and have adequate bone density in the jaw can be candidates for dental implants. However, a thorough evaluation by Dr. Hanson will determine your suitability for the procedure.
