What Are Dental Implants Made Of?
Our office uses Thommen Dental Implants on all of our implant procedures. Thommen implants are made from pure grade 4 titanium, which is durable and long-lasting. Thommen manufactures two different types of implants. The parallel-walled implant is widely used across implant procedures because it’s simple and effective. The conical-cylindrical implant is used for extraction sockets, and specific anatomical situations.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
The longevity of dental implants depends on the level of maintenance the patient performs. Proper care of implants includes brushing twice a day, flossing once per day, and visiting the dentist for cleanings every 6 months. With proper care, dental implants can last 20 years or more.
What’s The Dental Implant Process?
The first step in the dental implant process is an initial consultation, where the dentist will evaluate your overall health and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Generally, if you are a nonsmoker in good health, you will be eligible for dental implants.
Next, you’ll have your surgical appointment where the surgeon may first have to remove teeth in order to place implants. Once the implants have been placed, it’s time for the healing process. It’s important to rest after your surgery so your implants have time to settle, and the rest of your mouth can adjust. Within a week, you’ll return to the office for a checkup so your dentist can ensure the dental implants are working properly.
