IMPLANTS

Dental implants are surgical grade root devices that support permanent prosthetics that manufactured permanently. These artificial roots are anchored in the bone beneath the gums where they become fused into the jaw. Then a crown is mounted at the top of the implant for a long lasting and natural looking smile. Many dentist and patients prefer dental implants because they offer the same function as natural teeth and also help prevent bone atrophy in the jaw. Dental implants may be used to replace a single missing or damaged tooth or restore an entire smile. In Chrysomilos Dental Clinic we place dental implants since 2001 with 95% long term success.

Are dental implants right for me?

You may qualify for dental implants if you have missing, broken or severely decayed teeth and are in relatively good overall health. The only way of determining your eligibility for implants is to consult with us dentists to identify whether you have adequate bone support and healthy gums that will support the new tooth structure.

What should I expect if my dentist and I decide dental implants are right for me?

The placement of dental implants is a multi-step process that typically takes between 6 and 9 months to complete. It begins with a surgical procedure during which a titanium rod is placed where a previous natural tooth root once was. The gums are sutured shut over the implant, where is will stay for about 5 to 6 months while it heals and begins fusing with the surrounding bone. Due to the nature of implant placement and its average procedure time of between 1 and 2 hours, you’ll be anesthetized for the duration of the treatment. At the conclusion of the healing period, you’ll return to be fitted for permanent crowns and have them placed.

What type of post-treatment care will I require?

It is normal to experience some discomfort, including bruising and swelling following a dental implant procedure. However, inflammation and pain may be managed with over-the-counter medications. You may be asked to eat only soft foods for approximately 2 weeks until the surgical site heals.
