Dental Implants are artificial teeth roots that are placed into your jaw to hold replacement for teeth or a tooth. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to gum disease, an injury, or some other reason.
A candidate for a dental implant should be in good general and oral health. The bone in your jaw should be adequate enough to support the implant, and the candidate needs to have healthy gum tissues that are free of gum disease.
Dental implants are connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Periodontists are the dental professionals who specialize in such areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant team. Periodontists have experience working with other dental professionals, they also have the special knowledge, training and facilities that you need to have teeth that look and feel just like your own. Your dentist and periodontist will work together to make you smile again.
Your own teeth require at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants will function like your own teeth and will require the same type of care. Brushing and flossing still apply to keep your implant clean and plaque-free.
After the completion of your treatment, your periodontist will work closely with you and your dentist to develop the best care plan. We will schedule periodic follow-up visits to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they stay healthy.
