What can I expect before my implants?
At Sunshine Dental, we want to ensure the most successful, ideal dental implant journey possible for our patients. With that in mind, we consider planning to be a crucial step for your dentist to approach your implant procedure in the most precise way possible, as well as for you to have an informed experience with minimal healing time. In our office, we utilize the Hiossen OneGuide Kit to best map out your implants and help both you and your dentist visualize what is needed with a high degree of accuracy. We start with an imaging scan, the CBCT, to take a digital scan of your mouth and plan our entire implant procedure around your specific measurements. From here, we are able to make a guide, like a surgical gameplan, that helps our drill achieve a highly precise position for your future implant. Through our methodological approach to your mouth, we are able to ensure a careful and technical implant procedure that helps your future implant surgery go more smoothly, heal more quickly, and look better altogether once the oral implant is complete.
What Is the Treatment Process?
The process for fixed dental implants begins with the surgical placement of the implant and the attachment of a tooth-like oral restoration (like full-arch dentures, bridges, or crowns). A titanium screw will be strategically secured into your jawbone. As soon as the surgical area has healed, which may take up to six months, a member of our team will place the predetermined implant crown, denture, or bridge to complete the restoration.
Dental Implants FAQ
How long do dental implants last?
The longevity of dental implants can vary based on individual factors like oral hygiene and overall health. However, with proper care, dental implants can last for many years, often exceeding 25 years.
Are dental implants painful?
The procedure for dental implants involves local anesthesia, so you shouldn't feel pain during the surgery. After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort, which is generally manageable with over-the-counter pain medication.
How long is the recovery period after getting dental implants?
Typically, the initial recovery period is about 5 to 7 days following the surgical placement of the dental implant. However, complete healing and integration with the jawbone can take several weeks to a few months.
