Dental implants can improve your outlook on life.  Millions of people suffer from tooth loss from tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury.  Dental implants from Brady Dental of Amarillo can help. Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth and allow you to live the way you want to-smiling, laughing, talking, confidently eating, and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worry.  

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Think of dental implants as artificial screws for replacement teeth. Dental implants are placed in your jawbone, then integrate with your natural bone and become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. Implants provide a strong foundation for permanent, fixed replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. 

Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body.  Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. They are the most substantial devices available to support replacement teeth. The dentist at Brady Dental of Amarillo have everything you need for this procedure.

Dental implants allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.  When performed by a professionally trained and experienced dental implant dentist at Brady Dental of Amarillo, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry.

There are many advantages of dental implants.  Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth and are designed to fuse with the bone in your jaw so that they become permanent, improving your appearance.  Dental implants can also improve your speech when replacing poor-fitting dentures that can slip within your mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words.  Because dental implants become part of you, they eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures and make eating easier by functioning like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

Another advantage of dental implants is giving you back your smile and helping you feel better about yourself, improving your self-esteem. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. And, dental implants eliminate the embarrassment of dentures or missing teeth. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene. 

What does it take to get a dental implant? Each patient is different. After an initial consultation with your dentist at Brady Dental of Amarillo, your dentist will provide you with a treatment plan that includes the estimated amount of time to complete the process. Total treatment time depends on your needs, medical and dental history, jawbone condition, and the technique and materials used. It can be as short as a few months, or more than a year for more complex situations. 

The process of placing a dental implant involves multiple steps. These steps include removing the damaged tooth, preparing the jawbone, dental implant placement, bone growth and healing, abutment placement or connector that is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns, and artificial tooth placement or crowns that are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.

There should not be pain during the dental implant procedure as you will have been given anesthesia. However, as the numbness wears off, you will most likely start to feel some discomfort. The longer the procedure and the more implants, the more pain you may have afterward. After 10 to 14 days, most people can start to have more than just soup, juice, or protein drinks.  Over-the-counter drugs such as Motrin or Tylenol can be taken to help ease the pain. Dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, rinsing with mouthwash, and regular dental check-ups.

Dental implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care and regular visits to Brady Dental of Amarillo, many dental implants will last a lifetime. Call Brady Dental of Amarillo for more information.
