Are Dental Implants For You?

At Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, New Mexico, we know that tooth loss can be a blow to your self-image. What’s more, it can be dangerous to your health.

Whether it is a result of disease, decay or dental emergencies such as accidents or injuries, our team is standing by to replace one or more of your missing (or severely damaged teeth).

If you find yourself in this situation, you might want to consider our dental implant option for a permanent treatment solution.

Dental Implants Are A Miracle Of Modern Dentistry

Many of our patients have heard the term “dental implant” but aren’t quite sure what implants actually entail.

When you lose teeth as an adult, your jaw will begin to shrink and your remaining teeth will shift around in an attempt to fill in the missing spaces.

To keep that from happening, a dental implant post (made of titanium) can be inserted by our oral surgery team into your jawbone wherever there is a missing tooth.

This post helps maintain bone mass and prevent movement in your natural teeth.

Once in place, the post will immediately begin to fuse with your jawbone making a strong anchor for a replacement tooth.

After your jawbone has had time to heal, crowns or bridges will be placed on top of the posts to provide you with a bright, natural-looking smile.

Some benefits of implants are that you will be able to function like you would with natural teeth, eating and talking without reservation.

Plus, each crown will feel and look so natural that no one will ever be able to tell that you lost any teeth.

How Do You Handle Implants At Advanced Dental?

In order to get started, it will be necessary for you to come in for a consultation because the type of implant that is best for you will depend on your unique situation, and other factors such as your bone density and overall health.

When you come in for your initial appointment, we will take X-rays and images of your mouth. You will also have the opportunity to speak with our specialists about your options, and we will let you know what our treatment recommendations are.

If it turns out that you are a good candidate for dental implants, we will go over the procedure and the plan for aftercare treatment so you will be fully prepared for what you are getting into.
