Dental Implants & Implant Dentures
Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and prevent bone loss. Plus, with dental implants, healthy teeth are not compromised. A missing tooth can be replaced by a dental implant without altering the healthy adjacent teeth. Once the implant is placed, a post (or abutment) is attached providing support for you final crown. Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They bond with healthy bone and provide permanent support for dental crowns and dentures. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and can last a lifetime.
If you are a candidate for the TeethXpress procedure, an entire new set of teeth can be placed all on four, five or six dental implants, typically in one day. Any discomfort is usually minor and temporary. Dr. Timothy Pfountz may prescribe pain relievers for you as needed. A soft diet may be required during the initial healing phase
After the TeethXpress procedure, the use of a medicated mouth wash is often recommended for two weeks. After this phase of the healing period, Dr. Timothy Pfountz may recommend the use of a slow-speed water pick.
While dental implants do not decay, the implant’s connection to bone can be threatened by poor oral hygiene. Keeping up with the recommended oral hygiene regimen will help keep your mouth healthy and improve your ability to maintain your dental implants for a lifetime.
