What Are Dental Implants?
Restoring lost teeth is crucial to your mouth's general wellness and function. To help Fort Loramie, OH individuals reliably overcome extracted or lost teeth, Dr. Christopher Ashby is thrilled to offer natural-looking dental implants for tooth restoration. A fixed implant comprises a titanium screw that serves as a substitute tooth root. A specially crafted dental crown, bridge, or denture takes the place of the observable part of the missing tooth or several teeth. If you are dealing with missing teeth or need a tooth extraction, come in for a dental exam at Fort Loramie Dental Center and inquire about your fixed implant possibilities.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Implant-based solutions are often chosen because of their impressive range of positive perks. As effective replacements, dental implants:
- Act as normal teeth in ability and visual appeal
- Don't depend on surrounding teeth to stay in place
- Allow for the adaptation of a varied diet
- Could increase your self-assurance with speaking and any time your teeth show
- Yield increased chewing power and durability of tooth substitutes
- Incorporate with the bone tissues to preserve jawbone wellness and function
- Function as a long-term alternative
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Customized implants are utilized to replace any number of damaged teeth, from one tooth to an entire arch. You might be a proper candidate for oral implants if you have endured the loss of teeth, require tooth removals, or are not content with your current replacement. To serve their purpose, implants need enough bone mass, healthy gum tissues, and a reliable oral environment. In some cases, individuals could need prior services before they are considered ideal candidates. Implant-supported restorations might not be right for you when you are an expecting mother, a tobacco user, or have specific health conditions. During your session, Dr. Ashby will help you decide if fixed implants are good for you and your goals.
What Is the Dental Implant Treatment Process?
The technique for dental implants involves surgically positioning the implant posts within the jaw. Over the next few months, the implants will fuse with the bone through osseointegration to provide a solid support for your tooth replacement. When the implants are ready, we will take an impression of the area and custom-create implant crowns, an implant bridge, or implant-supported dentures, depending on the number of teeth needing replacement. Like natural teeth, implant restorations are crafted with the highest quality materials to feel, look, and function. When the custom implants are ready, we will firmly attach your implant crown, bridge, or denture to your implant posts, completing your tooth replacement procedure.
Recovery Following Implant Placement
Individuals who undergo this procedure might have a small amount of swelling, bruising, and pain close to the treated spot. Prescribed or nonprescription pain meds and cool compresses may help lessen their post-op discomfort. When the titanium implant has merged with the bone tissue and the personal restoration is positioned, it's essential to follow a regular dental cleaning routine with effective brushing and flossing habits. When men and women come to Fort Loramie Dental Center for their routine dental cleanings, Dr. Ashby will use small dental tools to clean their dental implants and check up on the function of their tooth replacements.

Dental Implants FAQs
Are dental implants permanent?
Dental implants can last a lifetime when placed correctly and properly cared for. Your implant is directly integrated into the jawbone, so it should stay in place securely and may not require replacement or adjustments. It is vital to schedule regular checkups with Dr. Ashby so he can make sure that your implant is healthy and in good condition.
Do dental implants look like natural teeth?
Yes! Fort Loramie Dental Center uses the most state-of-the-art materials to create lifelike crowns, bridges, and dentures that fit seamlessly over your implants. These prosthetics are made to match your other teeth in size and color so they will blend in naturally with your smile. If you maintain good oral hygiene, no one will know the difference between your natural teeth and dental implants.
How do I take care of my dental implants?
You should care for a dental implant like your natural teeth. Brush twice daily, floss once daily, and visit our Fort Loramie, OH dental office every six months for regular checkups and dental cleanings. Dr. Ashby recommends avoiding hard or crunchy foods, because they can damage your implant and surrounding teeth.
