Dental implants available at Flatlands Dental Care are artificial tooth roots that anchor dentures, dental bridges, or crowns. They replace missing permanent teeth that may have fallen out on their own or needed extraction due to severe decay or damage. Flatlands Dental Care offers sturdy, long-lasting dental implants that look just like your natural teeth.
The benefits of choosing dental implants at Flatlands Dental Care include:
Because dental implants function and look like natural teeth, other people won’t know you have the implants.
The Flatlands Dental Care team determines if dental implants are a good option based on your oral health history, desired results, and the condition of your teeth and gums. They also take dental X-rays to determine if you have enough jawbone to support the implants safely. If not, you may need bone grafting procedures to increase the volume and strength of your jaw.
If you have severe tooth decay or damage, your dentist may recommend tooth extraction before you receive dental implants.
The process of getting dental implants is simple and virtually painless. Your dentist numbs your mouth before inserting the metal posts into your jawbone. After a period of healing, or the same day as dental implant placement in some cases, you receive your new artificial teeth (crowns, bridges, or dentures). After your dentist secures them in place, enjoy your new flattering smile.
After you receive dental implants, it's important to care for them properly so they last a long time – even a lifetime. Brush your teeth after eating, floss every day, and see the Flatlands Dental Care team every six months so they can clean and examine your teeth. Wear a nightguard if you grind your teeth, and don’t chew on hard objects.
