What are dental implants?

Comprehensive exams, also known as full mouth exams, are an essential part of dental care that dentists conduct to assess a patient’s oral health. During a comprehensive exam, the dentist will perform a thorough evaluation of a patient’s teeth, gums, jaw, and oral tissues to identify any existing or potential problems. 

This exam includes a visual inspection, x-rays, and other diagnostic tests to determine the overall health of a patient’s teeth and gums. The dentist will check for signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues that require treatment.

The benefits of Dental Implants

One of the main benefits of dental implants is that they look and feel like natural teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, implants are permanent and don’t require any special cleaning or maintenance beyond regular brushing and flossing. They also help to preserve the surrounding jawbone, which can deteriorate over time after a tooth is lost.

What is the process for dental Implants?

The process of getting a dental implant typically involves a few steps. First, your dentist or oral surgeon will assess your oral health and determine if you are a good candidate for implants. If you are, they will surgically place the implant into your jawbone. This will be followed by a healing period of several months, during which the implant fuses with the surrounding bone.

Once the implant has fully healed and fused with the bone, your dentist will attach an abutment, which is a small connector piece that holds the replacement tooth or bridge in place. The final step is attaching the replacement tooth or bridge to the abutment.

Dental implants are different from other tooth replacement options such as dentures or bridges because they are anchored directly into the jawbone, providing a stable and long-lasting foundation for a replacement tooth.
The placement of a dental implant typically involves a multi-step process that begins with the surgical placement of the implant into the jawbone. After a period of healing, a connector piece (abutment) is attached to the implant, and a replacement tooth (crown) is then attached to the abutment.
To be a good candidate for dental implants, you should have healthy gums and sufficient jawbone density to support the implant. Your dentist can evaluate your oral health and help you determine whether dental implants are right for you.
The placement of a dental implant is typically done under local anesthesia, which numbs the area around the implant. You may experience some discomfort or soreness after the procedure, but this can be managed with pain medication.
The recovery time can vary depending on the complexity of the procedure and how well you take care of the implant site. In general, it may take several months for the implant to fully integrate with the jawbone and for the replacement tooth to be attached.
Caring for a dental implant is similar to caring for natural teeth, and involves daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental checkups and cleanings. Your dentist can provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your dental implant.

What our customers are saying about mend dental

Dr. Sison and the whole team at mend dental are top-notch. I was actually a client from the previous doctor, but I have been even more satisfied when Dr. Sison took over the practice. I really like the practice is very focused on dental health, and not overly pushy on cosmetic dentistry. In addition to my routine cleanings, the mend team has done some emergency and day-of work for me when I've asked, and they are always quick and detailed. I've had to move appointments around due to work events, and I appreciate their afternoon availability. Always gentle, always providing good tips, and super clean teeth. Really appreciate the work Dr. Sison and the team puts in.

By far the most attentive and caring staff I have experienced in a dental office. From previous places I have bounced around, I can say I will be here to stay at Mend Dental. The staff here go out of their way to get to know me and make it such a comfortable and smooth experience. They were extremely punctual and efficient, which I personally look for in a dental office.
