What are Dental Implants?
Modern dental advancements have significantly improved solutions for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are long-term devices that restore the complete functionality of your smile while also addressing aesthetic concerns. Every implant is designed to look and feel like natural teeth so that you can smile confidently in any situation. Plus, dental implants help preserve your facial structure, reducing signs of aging commonly caused by missing teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants:
- Simple maintenance
- No food restrictions
- Permanent restorations
- Custom designed
- Appropriate for single or multiple teeth
Types of Dental Implants
Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Lubbock offers various implant therapies depending on each patient’s needs. Dr. Morgan takes his time to listen to your concerns and review your oral health before suggesting a specific treatment. If we recommend implant dentistry, you will likely undergo one of the following traditional implant procedures:
Missing just one tooth can significantly impact your self-confidence, diet, and speaking ability. Dr. Morgan has helped countless patients repair their smiles with individual dental implants.
We follow an advanced, proven process for replacing each missing tooth to ensure high-quality results in a timely manner. First, Dr. Morgan will gently numb the tissue near the implant site so you can feel comfortable during the procedure. A small opening is created in the gum tissue, and the implant is securely placed into the bone. It takes a few months for the implant to integrate, after which Dr. Morgan will place a permanent crown on top of it.
Our experienced team can restore multiple missing teeth without using implants for each tooth. In fact, Dr. Morgan can install two dental implants and then attach a fixed bridge on top to permanently restore several teeth in a row without having to wear a partial denture.
Full Arch Implants
If you need to restore all of your teeth at once or want an alternative to dentures, options like All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants provide a streamlined, comfortable solution.
Full-arch dental implants are a series of four to six dental implants that restore an entire arch of missing teeth. After the implants are placed and healed, our dentist will create a pair of permanent or removable dentures that attach to the implants. These full-arch implant designs allow you to eat and smile with confidence with as few as four implants per arch (upper or lower jaw.)
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dr. Morgan carefully assesses all potential implant candidates to determine if this treatment is right for them. Safety is one of our highest concerns, and we never want to recommend a procedure that will yield unfavorable results. Fortunately, there are few restrictions on implant dentistry. While this list is not exhaustive, an ideal implant candidate will have:
- Healthy teeth and gums
- Good oral hygiene
- Sufficient bone support
- Not currently using tobacco products
How Long Does Recovery Take After Dental Implant Surgery?
Patients typically report mild soreness for the first few days after a dental implant procedure. Dr. Morgan will prescribe appropriate medication and home care instructions to reduce these side effects, which are minor and temporary. Recovery can take as little as one to two days for single-tooth implant procedures and up to one week for more extensive treatments.
