Do you have missing teeth and desire a permanent solution? Evolve Family Dental offers dental implant services to restore missing teeth and improve oral function. Many dentists and patients consider dental implants the gold standard for tooth replacement, and it's easy to understand why. Dental implants are secure, durable, attractive, and mimic the function of natural teeth. 

What's the Purpose of Dental Implants?

Dental implants permanently replace missing tooth roots and restore the teeth's function and appearance. Our custom-made dental implants match your unique smile for the highest level of comfort and utility. To hold a dental implant, patients must have healthy gums and bone density, as the jaw and gums provide essential support for the prosthetic. 

What's the Dental Implant Procedure? 

Dental implants consist of an implant post, abutment, and prosthetic. Before the procedure, we make sure the patient is completely comfortable and numb so they don't experience any pain or discomfort. The dentist then surgically places the post into the jawbone to stabilize the implant's foundation.

Over the next several weeks, the bone grows around the implant post through a process called osseointegration. When the jaw heals, we connect the abutment to the implant post and top it with a prosthetic tooth or teeth, such as a crown, bridge, or denture. 

How to Care for Dental Implants

Dental implants closely resemble natural teeth in strength, ability, and aesthetics. Because they become a permanent part of your anatomy, patients can expect to care for dental implants as they care for natural teeth. To ensure your smile stays healthy and strong, be sure to do the following:

  • Brush twice daily.
  • Floss every day.
  • Use mouthwash. 
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Visit your dentist for routine dental exams and cleanings.

If the prosthetic attached to your dental implant breaks or wears down, please don't hesitate to contact our dental office for help. We can replace or restore damaged or aged crowns, bridges, and dentures.
