Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, often made of titanium. They support artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, which replace missing permanent teeth. Dental implants can make an unflattering smile beautiful and help you gain confidence in your oral health.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Some of the many benefits you can experience with dental implants include:

  • Not more gaps in your smile
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier chewing
  • Better facial symmetry
  • More self-confidence
  • An aesthetically pleasing smile
  • Less adjacent teeth shifting

If you’re missing teeth, dental implants can give you the smile you long for with little downtime. Implants are strong, long-lasting, and look just like natural teeth. They can last a lifetime when properly cared for.

Are dental implants right for me?

Dr. Bronstein can let you know if you’re a candidate for dental implants after examining your teeth and gums and taking dental X-rays. He discusses your desired outcome and lets you know what to expect during the procedure. Dr. Bronstein personalizes each cosmetic dental treatment to best match your needs.

What happens during dental implant placement?

Dental implant placement with Dr. Bronstein is a multiple-step process. During your first appointment, he makes tiny incisions to place dental implants within your jawbone. During a period of healing, you may have to follow a soft-food diet.

When your jawbone fully heals, you return to Dr. Bronstein’s office so he can place abutments (tiny metal attachment components) on each implant. He attaches crowns, bridges, or dentures to the abutments to secure your new teeth in place.

How should I take care of my dental implants?

To properly care for your dental implants, follow Dr. Bronstein’s instructions. Brush your teeth at least twice daily, floss every day, and see Dr. Bronstein every six months for routine dental cleanings and exams. Avoid chewing on ice, popcorn kernels, hard candy, pens, and other hard objects, and call the dental office if your implants get damaged.

If you’re unhappy with missing permanent teeth, dental implants offer a solution. Call the office of Dr. Arden Bronstein DDS or request an appointment online to find out if dental implants are right for you.
