What I Learned After Getting a Dental Implant

Ask anyone who has had dental implants placed in their mouth and you will find they are more than happy with the result. At first, some are intimidated by the placement process that requires the bonding of titanium screws to the jaw bone. This process, referred to as osseointegration, takes several months to complete yet it is well worth it. Once your dental implants are in place, you will feel as though you have a full set of real teeth in your mouth.

Look here:

WHAT IS LIFE LIKE IMMEDIATELY AFTER DENTAL IMPLANT PLACEMENT?

Dentists advise patients to stick to a diet of soft foods for the first 24 hours following the procedure. In some cases, the dentist advises consuming soft foods for upwards of seven days. Examples of such foods that do not mandate chewing are applesauce, mashed potatoes and smoothies. Consume these foods for 24 hours after you receive your dental implants and you will set the stage for a painless, functional and comfortable mouth.

DENTAL IMPLANTS CHEW THROUGH FOOD JUST LIKE REGULAR TEETH

You have likely dined at a restaurant in which someone with dental implants consumed corn on the cob, medium-cooked steak and other foods that are notoriously difficult to chew. However, you probably had no idea that individual relied on dental implants to tear through meat, raw vegetables and other tasty items. Dental implants are designed to chew right through these tough foods just like normal teeth.

So do not assume you will be limited to certain foods like you are with other tooth replacement options. You really can eat any type of food or drink any type of beverage you desire after receiving dental implants. Dental implants are able to tear through foods of all types as they are built to replace the tooth roots.

This is the deeply-set, reliable connection between your jaw and artificial teeth necessary to eat with full confidence. You can chow down on anything in public without worry your dental implants will fall out. The titanium anchors connect right to the jaw bone. Once the mouth has time to heal, the dentist positions the crown and prepares the patient to live life just like he or she did prior to losing one or several teeth.

PROPER CARE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS

There is no need to fuss around with cleaning solutions when caring for dental implants. These beauties require the same level of cleaning just like your normal teeth. You can floss your dental implants without worrying that the floss will catch and break. Furthermore, you can brush your dental implants with your regular toothpaste.

PEOPLE WILL HAVE NO IDEA YOU RELY ON DENTAL IMPLANTS

Most people who give consideration to dental implants ask the question of whether onlookers will be able to tell if these artificial teeth are actually real. You can open your mouth wide to laugh, talk, smile or do anything else and nobody will know you have dental implants.

The crown that the dentist connects to the abutment resembles a normal tooth. Thus, the patient will have a uniform visual aesthetic throughout the mouth. This is the visually-pleasing aesthetic you need to feel confident with your smile.
