Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants
Are you looking for a permanent solution to replace one or more of your missing teeth? Dental implants from Dripping Springs Family Dentistry in Dripping Springs may be your ideal solution. Used to replace missing single missing teeth and to support dentures, dental implants provide a host of benefits and can last for a lifetime when cared for diligently.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are permanently anchored into your jaw. After being surgically placed, they begin to fuse to the jawbone and, once fully healed, serve as a durable base for a customized dental crown tooth.
What benefits do they provide?
Dental implants restore your smiling and speaking confidence while preventing jawbone density loss that occurs when a tooth has been extracted. They also look and feel like your natural teeth, they enable you to chew the foods you love, and they prevent shifting in the teeth that surround an extraction area.
How long does it take to recover from having a dental implant placed?
While most patients experience full recovery within four to six months after surgery, for the first few weeks, it’s common for patients to experience some soreness, swelling, and sensitivity in the surgical site. Antibiotics and painkillers can be prescribed to help make recovery more comfortable.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
Many patients with one or more missing teeth may be a candidate for dental implants, though it’s essential that patients have healthy gums and adequate jawbone density. A consultation with our dentist can help us determine if dental implants are right for you.
