Dental implants are artificial teeth roots used to support replacement teeth. If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants can help restore the look and function of your smile. To request more information or to see if you would be a good candidate for dental implants, call Dr. Sachdev and his team today at (831) 724-6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who Can Have Dental Implants?
Patients of any age can get dental implants. To be considered for dental implants, Dr. Sachdev and his staff ask that you:
practice good oral hygiene
are healthy enough for a routine dental extraction
have enough bone to support the implant
are healthy enough to undergo oral surgery
have healthy gums
schedule routine checkups
Some factors may require patients to be more thoroughly examined before receiving dental implants. This may include you if you:
are a heavy smoker
suffer from uncontrolled chronic disorders (like heart disease or diabetes)
have undergone radiation therapy around the head or neck
Why Should I Get Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a great treatment option to replace missing teeth and allow you to perform normal functions that you may not be able to otherwise. They can also prevent teeth from shifting into vacant spaces, which can eventually alter the appearance of your face. Other benefits of dental implants include:
Comfort: each implant is individually placed, unlike dental bridges or dentures
Strength: they can last a lifetime
Fit: since they are individually placed, they allow for a better fit
Appearance: they resemble your natural teeth
Speech: they are secure and won't slip out or alter your speech in any way
Eating: they act like your normal teeth and assist with chewing
Oral Health: other teeth don't need to be altered or taken out for the implant to be placed
Flossing: you can floss with ease
Cleaner: you maintain your dental implants like you would your natural teeth
How Do I Get Dental Implant?
While each patient is different, dental implants may not be right for you. We offer several treatment options that carry out similar functions to dental implants if they aren’t a good fit for you. Make an appointment with Dr. Sachdev and his team to see if you can benefit from dental implants.
How Do I Take Care of My Dental Implants?
You can take care of your dental implants just as you would your natural teeth. The American Dental Association suggest patients of all ages brush at least twice a day and floss once. We recommend finishing your daily oral routine with mouthwash. Proper oral care is all you need to keep your dental implants looking and feeling great.
