Dental Implants

A person may experience various issues upon losing teeth, such as speech difficulty or an altered pattern of chewing that causes discomfort. The best way of improving the quality of life is by replacing the missing tooth or teeth with the help of dental implants. Our general dentists at Tecumseh Family Dental are equipped with the technology to ensure you get the treatment you want. Along with our dental team, we provide you with the dental experience you deserve. 

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant or tooth implant is a titanium screw placed within your jaw bone to replace the missing teeth. It helps to support multiple false teeth, like bridges or dentures. These are the medical devices that allow restoring your aesthetics and your ability to chew food. They typically consist of a dental implant abutment, an implant body, and a fixation screw. These devices are surgically placed in the place of the missing tooth’s root within the jawbone. The fixation screw connects the dental implant body and the dental implant abutment.
Depending on your situation, our dental implant team might recommend all-on-4 dental implants or all-on-6 dental implants.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Some people have a misconception that opting for implants would hurt. Let’s put an end to this by saying that implant placements are more comfortable than getting your tooth extracted. Yes, you read that right because the procedure involves using an anesthetic. With local anesthesia, you won’t feel any pain or have discomfort during the implant placement procedure. There are chances of some discomfort after the process for a day but nothing more than that. When you have a professional dentist by your side, you are getting the best treatment.

    The prime question arising in the mind of anybody new to the concept of implants is whether they are safe. Well, let us tell you that they are not only a well-established type of dental treatment but also safe. They replicate the functions of an original tooth to aid you in chewing and speech. Unlike temporary dentures and bridges, dental implants last longer. However, you must care for them properly and ensure proper maintenance. Your regular dental visits for their maintenance and oral hygiene will largely determine the time for which they will last.

    Your dentist or dental team will provide you with instructions to follow after the implant placement procedure. Your dentist may prescribe you painkillers so that you experience no pain after the operation. Some people might develop swelling after the implant placement procedure. However, it subsides when you place ice packs at short intervals. It is suggested you eat a soft diet for about two days after the process.
