Dental Implant Questions For Dr. Porter
Hello again! Thanks for visiting the online home of Synergy Dental Center. We are your trusted source for restorative dentistry solutions in Gillette, Wyoming. As such, we wanted to tell you about a great opportunity we offer for restoring the health and appearance of your smile following tooth loss as an adult: dental implants. We strongly believe that our dental implants are perfect for permanently replacing teeth that you have lost already or are on the way to losing. But we know that before you move forward with investing in your future health and happiness, you may have some questions about the process. To make things easier for you, we have compiled a few of the things that tend to come up during a typical dental implant consultation with Dr. Porter. Please keep reading, and then be sure to get in touch to schedule your appointment with our team. You won’t regret it!
How Do Modern Dental Implants Work?
Here’s the deal: this procedure involves a two-stage process. In the first part you will have an implant (the root) surgically inserted into your jawbone. After sufficient healing/fusion has taken place, you will have a crown or some other mechanism installed to complete the look of a normal smile.
Will The Implant Surgery Hurt?
No. We will do everything possible to make it a pain-free and pleasant experience for you. That includes employing sedation dentistry techniques to guarantee that your visit is smooth and comfortable.
Are Dental Implants Comfortable?
Yes! Our implants are crafted to feel like your natural teeth. The artificial tooth, or crown, is custom-made to fit your mouth. It will be the right size, shape, and color to blend in with the rest of your teeth.
Will Dental Implants Last A Lifetime?
We are pleased to tell you that dental implants are, in fact, designed to last a lifetime but they will require some maintenance, just like your real teeth. Brushing twice a day for two or more minutes, flossing and rinsing regularly, and visiting the dentist every three to six months will keep you on the right track.
What Is The Cost?
Every situation is unique. During your consultation, we will give you an estimate for each of your available options. We wholeheartedly believe that financial concerns should never stand in the way of a great smile and excellent oral health.
Are Implants The Right Solution For Me?
Truth be told, the only way to determine if dental implants are the best solution for you is to schedule a consultation with our team. When you pay us a visit in-person, Dr. Porter will be able to examine your mouth, take digital X-rays, and assess your bone structure. After that, we can move forward if it makes sense.
