Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Oral implants are utilized to replace any quantity of missing teeth, ranging from a single tooth to several teeth. You might be a good candidate for oral implants if you have experienced the loss of teeth, need extractions, or are dissatisfied with your present restoration. To serve their purpose, dental implants need proper jawbone tissue, healthy gums, and a stable dental environment. In some cases, patients may require additional services before they are thought of as ideal candidates. Dental implants may not be appropriate if you are an expecting mother, use tobacco products, or have specific medical concerns. At your visit, Dr. Garcia will help you learn if implant-supported restorations are a match for you.
What Is the Dental Implant Treatment Process?
The process for dental implants involves the surgical positioning of the post and the securing of a natural-looking tooth replacement, such as full-arch pieces, crowns, or bridges. Once you are ready for treatment, your mouth is numbed with anesthesia. Oral-conscious sedation or IV techniques may also be utilized to help you feel calm throughout your procedure. The fixed post will be surgically secured within the jawbone at a certain area and given a period of time to fuse with the tissue through a phenomenon called osseointegration. Once the implant site has completely recovered, which takes usually 6 – 9 months, Dr. Garcia will set a custom denture, crown, or bridge and assess the alignment of the biting surfaces.

Dental Implants FAQs
Are dental implants permanent?
When placed correctly and cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime. Because your implant is directly integrated into the jawbone, it will stay in place securely and may not require replacement or adjustments. Regular checkups with Dr. Garcia will help ensure that your implant remains healthy and in good condition.
Do dental implants look natural?
Yes! At Savannah Smiles Dental, we use the highest quality materials to craft lifelike crowns, bridges, and dentures that fit seamlessly over your implants. These prosthetics are designed to match your existing teeth in size and color so they will blend in naturally with your smile. With proper care, no one will know the difference between your natural teeth and dental implants.
How do I care for my dental implants?
Caring for your dental implant is just like caring for your natural teeth. Brush twice per day, floss once per day, and visit our Schertz, TX team every six months for regular checkups and cleanings. We also recommend avoiding hard or crunchy foods, as they can damage your implant and surrounding teeth.
