Preparing for Dental Implants

dental implants dentist Cherry CreekGetting ready for a tooth implant includes understanding what it is, whether you are a candidate, how to prepare for the surgery and precautions to take throughout the healing process. The experienced staff at New Image Dental Implant Center will be with you every step of the way.

What is a dental implant?

Simply stated, a dental implant is a permanent post fused to the jawbone with attached abutment and artificial tooth. A tooth implant can also support a dental bridge or denture.

Who can benefit from dental implants?

Ideal candidates for dental implants include patients with missing teeth, dentures, or bridges who have healthy oral tissue, adequate bone structure, and proper health for bone healing. Our patients come from all backgrounds and have a wide range of dental troubles. For many, dental implants are an outstanding solution.

What preparation is needed?

An initial visit is the first step. Be sure to bring relevant medical information, current medication list, and questions you have about the process. Dental implants take multiple visits and the process is different for each person so be sure you understand all the vital details. If we determine that you don’t have enough bone structure at the implant site, bone grafting may be required.
How do I ensure successful healing?
Avoid drugs or medications not approved by your dental caregiver. Eat soft foods for a while to give your mouth time to heal between surgeries. Keep the mouth cleaned properly around site. Follow the instructions given at each visit. Stay healthy by eating a nutritious diet and getting proper rest. Avoid smoking or other tobacco products.

How do I care for dental implants?
Caring for implants is not much different than caring for natural teeth. Be sure to avoid damaging, harmful habits such as chewing hard items (ice or candy), and seek treatment for teeth grinding if it is a problem for you. See your dentist regularly. Keep the implants and gum tissue around the implants clean just as you (hopefully) do with your natural teeth.
The complete process can take months from consultation to complete healing and placement of the abutment and artificial tooth. At your initial consultation, we can discuss the cost of dental implants and examine financing options.
