Our team at Northern Niagara Dentistry is here to help you smile with confidence again. Take the quiz to see if you are a candidate for dental implant treatment.
An implant is inserted into your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. After the implant is placed and an artificial tooth is put on top of it, you won't be able to tell the difference between that tooth and a natural one. Just make sure to follow our post-operative care instructions to reduce any discomfort you experience while your mouth heals so that you recover comfortably.
During your dental implant treatment, you will come into our office 3-4 times over the course of many months. This includes an initial consultation, surgical procedure, follow-ups to monitor your progress and any other appointments needed throughout the process.
We are happy to announce that our office has partnered with a third-party dental financing service! This allows you to get the care you need now and pay back the loan on a monthly basis.
It’s important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. When you lose teeth, it becomes difficult to chew your food properly, which leads to digestive issues and poor nutrition. Additionally, your jaw will start to shrink after tooth loss, causing the muscles in your face to sag.
When it comes to the longevity of dental implants, the answer is that they can last a lifetime with proper care. However, it is important to keep in mind that each individual case is unique and some people may experience complications that can shorten the lifespan of their implants. The most important factor in determining how long your dental implants will last is how well you practice good at-home dental hygiene. Good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings are the best way to extend the lifetime of your dental implant.
