What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most effective solution for missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that stabilizes and holds a secure replacement tooth or dental bridge. Nashville Dental Implant Center specializes in providing the highest quality dental implants, installation services, sedation dentistry, and after-care. The dental implants we offer at Nashville Dental Implant Center are the longest-lasting, most comfortable, and natural-looking dental implants available.
Implants restore your smile and your confidence. They also improve your oral health overall and eliminate discomfort. We offer a permanent, discrete solution for a missing tooth.
The implants we offer at Nashville Dental Implant Center are biocompatible, meaning they fit naturally with your jawbone. This ensures that the implants bond with the jaw to provide a stable, sturdy foundation for your new tooth. Our implants offer the following benefits:
- Bone biocompatibility
- Firmness and stability
- Ceramic Dental Implants
Preparing for Dental Implants
We prepare our patients for implants in several stages. We need to be absolutely certain that you will be a good candidate for dental implants before starting the process. Before you begin the surgical process, you will complete several steps.
- Conduct a full dental exam
- Discuss your questions and concerns
- Review your dental and medical history
- Review your current medications
- Discussion of treatment options and procedures
Before your surgery, our dental professionals will administer sedation, general, or local anesthesia to keep you calm and comfortable.
Caring for Dental Implants
Implants can’t withstand the force of a normal bite until the bone has attached firmly to the surface of the implant. It takes between 3 and 6 months for an implant to become properly integrated into the jaw. During this time you’ll definitely want to avoid food that is difficult to chew. You’ll also want to be careful when flossing; your dentist will explain how to gently slide floss between your teeth. You may experience some sensitivity for the first few days after the procedure, but most people are surprised by how quickly they heal.
Our ceramic implants cannot get cavities, but your gums are still susceptible. Keeping your implant clean is extremely important. You’ll want to brush after every meal and avoid sugary foods when possible.
After your implant becomes integrated with the jaw, caring for your dental implants requires many of the same techniques as regular oral hygiene. We recommend:
- Brushing and flossing twice a day (ideally after every meal)
- Special kinds of toothpaste and rinses
- Using a Waterpik or other flossing device
- Eating a healthy diet
- Avoiding sugary foods and drinks
