Preparing for Dental Implants
When you're missing a tooth, normal daily activities such as eating, smiling, chewing, and talking can become difficult. A dental implant is a great solution for replacing one or more missing teeth so you can reclaim your oral health and your life.
Dr. Jeffrey Robertson can help you prepare for dental implants in Irvine, CA, and guide you through the process from start to finish.
What Is an Implant?
A dental implant is a highly successful treatment that restores both your root and your tooth. A titanium post is placed into your bone, which creates a stable foundation for your new tooth, or porcelain crown.
After your implant is given time to heal and integrate with your bone, Dr. Robertson will customize your new porcelain crown to attach to your implant and replace your tooth. Your implant crown gives you all the function you had with your natural tooth, so you'll be chewing, eating, and smiling again in no time!
To ensure the success of your implant, you'll need to do a couple of things to prepare. An implant requires good overall health to be successful, so prior to your implant treatment, take care of any outstanding necessary dental treatments such as crowns or fillings. A thorough professional cleaning is also recommended to get your implant off to a great start.
