We love answering our patients’ questions and helping them understand more about their oral health. Here are some of the most frequently asked dental implant questions:
It is normal to worry about pain when considering any type of surgery. Luckily, the dental implant surgery process is painless. You will be under an anesthetic during the procedure which will prevent you from feeling pain. Also, you may experience some mild discomfort in the following weeks as your implants heal but will be provided with the over-the-counter medication.
Dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option available. But to keep them healthy for a lifetime, you will need to properly care for them. Diligent brushing, thorough flossing and regular dentist visits should be the cornerstones of a healthy oral hygiene routine. Practicing these habits can help your dental implants last.
Not at all. One of the most popular draws of dental implants is the way that they resemble natural teeth. Dr. Tye A. Thompson will ensure that your new implant matches the color and shape of your other teeth so that it seamlessly blends in with your smile.
It’s common for patients with dentures to pursue dental implant treatment. Many denture-users grow tired of the upkeep and instability that come with dentures. In most cases, Dr. Thompson can replace dentures with proper implants.
Patients with jawbone deterioration, periodontal diseases and other oral health issues may need supplemental treatments prior to implant surgery.
More and more Midland, TX residents are choosing dental implant treatment over traditional tooth replacement options. Patients are often amazed by the simplicity of the process given its stunning results.
