Questions to Ask When Selecting a Dental Implant Dentist
Did You Know?
Teeth restored with implants can’t get cavities! A replacement tooth, or crown, doesn’t decay like a natural tooth, but you still must brush, floss and care for it and your surrounding natural teeth and gums in the same manner as natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups also are essential.
Dental Implants Procedures
The Process of Installing Implants
If one or more of your teeth have fallen out, you may qualify for dental implant procedure as a way to permanently replace the missing teeth. In order to find out, schedule an appointment with our Sioux Falls dentist office by calling 605-271-9330. Dr. Beecroft will examine your mouth and jawbone to determine if the procedure is right for you. Before you can get started, your gums need to be healthy, and your jawbone needs to be strong. If, Dr. Beecroft identifies any cavities or signs of gum disease, this will need to be treated first.
Once you are cleared for the procedure, the staff at First Class Dental Care will take an impression of your mouth so that the new teeth can be created in a dental lab. Each tooth will be made to match the size and shape of the surrounding teeth along with having a perfect color match. This way your smile will appear completely natural once done. Patients throughout Sioux Falls are delighted with the results since no one can tell the difference between which teeth are real and which ones are synthetic.
After Installing Implants
Afterwards, Dr. Beecroft will secure the new synthetic tooth to the metal post at the surface of the gums. The new tooth is attached so securely, that patients can eat their favorite foods, maintain an active lifestyle, play sports, and more, without fear of their tooth becoming loose or falling out. Patients throughout South Dakota enjoy the benefits that come from never having to worry about their tooth again.
Caring for Dental Prosthetics and Implants
In order to care for your implants, we advise patients throughout South Dakota to brush and floss their teeth throughout the day like they normally would. Additionally, it is important to schedule dental exams and cleanings with Dr. Beecroft at least twice a year. The staff at First Class Dental Care will help to clean your teeth and ensure that they stay healthy. This step is incredibly important because while dental prosthetics cannot become infected themselves, the teeth around them can. If, in the future, you suffer from a severe case of gum disease or a dental abscess, the infection can spread into your jawbone. This puts your implants in jeopardy because in order to stay secure, the jawbone must be in good health. If it becomes infected, your dental prosthetics and all of your teeth will be in jeopardy.
Preventative Care Steps
If you currently have implants and your teeth start to hurt, call 605-271-9330 to schedule an appointment immediately. This way we can identify any infection and treat it before it can spread into the jawbone. As long as you follow these simple preventative care steps, your implants and natural teeth should remain in good health. There is 40 years of data behind every implant installed today, with success rates of about 98%.
