Dental Implants Roanoke are a Permanent Solution to Broken or Missing Teeth
Get the smile of your dreams with beautiful teeth that will last a lifetime
When it comes to replacing broken or missing teeth, there’s no better solution than dental implants. While dentures are still a popular choice for people who have multiple missing teeth or have had all of their teeth removed, dental implants in Roanoke continue to grow in popularity because they are permanent and can be treated just like your real teeth.
Dental implants are commonly made from porcelain crowns and a titanium rod that is placed in the bone of the gums below the surface. The procedure is must faster and easier than it was when dental implants first came on the scene, and Dr. Roach and Dr. Lubeck ensure that every dental implant is a perfect match for your smile and teeth. And there’s good news for those patients with dentures who are tired of the fuss: dental implants Roanoke can be combined with dentures to create permanent dentures.
Who are Dental Implants For?
While dental implants are an ideal solution for broken or missing teeth, not every patient will be a good candidate. Patients need to have sufficient bone mass in their jaw in order to support the placement of a dental implant. In some cases, bone grafts can be used to supplement the missing or reduced bone.
Patients undergoing dental implants should have a robust oral hygiene routine and have a strong immune system. People who are ill or suffer from chronic conditions may not be suitable candidates. Patients who take certain medications may not be eligible for dental implants because surgery is required to place the implant. If you are not sure if you would be a good candidate for dental implants, contact our office in Roanoke today to set up an appointment with one of our Roanoke dentists.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
There are many benefits to having dental implants replace missing or broken teeth. These include:
- Permanent placement that is no-fuss
- Teeth look and feel like your natural teeth
- Durable and long-lasting
- No messy creams or cleaners
- Once healed and secure, implants can last a lifetime.
Dental implants are a solution used by dentists all over North America – and the world – and patients have great success in restoring their teeth to their natural look and function. With a little planning and care, your new implants will last your whole life.
What Can You Expect When Getting a Dental Implant?
After a consultation to determine suitability for dental implants, we’ll book you an appointment to have the base of the implant placed in your gum. This is a surgical procedure that uses anesthesia. You’ll need someone to come to the appointment with you to take you home afterward. Once the rod is placed that will receive the crown, you’ll wait several months while the area heals. During this time, we can provide a partial denture if you wish to fill the gap.
Once the gums have healed and the rod has taken root in the bone, you’ll be invited back to our dental office to have a crown placed on the implant. Once placed, the crown is permanent and your smile will be complete!
