Dental Implant Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are custom-made artificial teeth that serve as a complete replacement for one or more missing teeth. Typically constructed of ceramic or medical-grade titanium, dental implants restore your oral function, preserve the bone structure in your face, and help boost your confidence. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth.

Who needs dental implants?

Dr. Trang meets with you to evaluate the health of your gums and jaw bone to determine if you are in good oral health and can benefit from dental implants. In general, Dr. Trang ensures:

  • Your gums are strong, healthy, and free of gingivitis
  • You have enough bone to hold an implant
  • You have a strong immune system
  • You want a permanent solution
  • You aren’t undergoing radiation therapy to the neck or face

Other concerns that impact whether dental implants are successful are whether you smoke, have diabetes, or suffer from heart disease.

What can I expect from the dental implant procedure?

In a private room, Dr. Trang helps you relax and numbs your mouth with local anesthesia. He opens your gum surgically and implants a titanium or ceramic post into your jaw bone. The procedure is outpatient, so you’ll go home on the same day.

After a period of waiting while your bone fuses with the post and your mouth heals, you’ll return for the abutment, an extension that’s installed on the post. There’s another shorter period of waiting while your tissues heal again. The skilled team at Dobson Warner Dentistry make a mold of your mouth and bite. Dr. Trang uses the mold to order and place your new dental implants.

What can I expect after the procedure?

Dobson Warner Dentistry is equipped with the most advanced equipment and tools. The dentists use innovative techniques to minimize pain and swelling after your procedure. As with any dental procedure, you may have discomfort at the site of the implant, minor bruising, and light bleeding for a day or two. Dr. Trang may prescribe antibiotics or pain medication, if necessary.
