Dental Implants And You

Lilly Family Dentistry Blog, Your Appearance Leave a Comment

THOUGH THE TERM MAY SOUND VERY FAMILIAR, you might still be a little unsure about what dental implants actually are—and why they are such a great solution for tooth loss. Don’t worry. Dr. Kevin Lilly and Dr. Jane Lilly understand that most people are actually in the dark about this. Talking about dental implants isn’t exactly a common topic of social conversation! We can help.

The dental implants process begins with inserting small titanium posts into the jaw as the “root structure” for a denture, bridge, or crown. The next step involves several weeks of healing so that these small implants can fuse with your bone and produce a strong anchor. A temporary crown is worn above the implant during the healing time until you are ready for your custom-made crown, bridge, or denture to be securely attached to the small metal post. In the end you’ll be left with a natural-looking, long-lasting, and beautiful smile!

Here is a short list of benefits:

Eating Will Be Enjoyable Again! Because dental implants are anchored in the bone, they can provide biting force similar to natural teeth.

You’ll Save Your Healthy Neighboring Teeth! In most cases, adjacent teeth are not altered or harmed in any way.

Easily Maintenance!Dental implants are just as easy to brush and floss as natural teeth.

A Permanent Solution! Your implants can last a lifetime!

Very High Success Rate!With a 95% success rate, dental implants are one of the most successful options available for replacing missing teeth.

Drs. Jane and Kevin Lilly are extremely qualified in determining if you’re a good candidate for dental implants.
