Before making a decision to replace missing teeth with a desired tooth replacement option, make sure you understand all of your options. Dr. Andrés R. Sánchez wants to educate patients about dental implants in Eden Prairie, MN, and how they work.
How Are Dental Implants Placed?
Dental implants are a permanent teeth replacement option for people who have damaged or lost one or several natural teeth. The restoration process is not immediate, however with proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. The dental implant procedure occurs in stages.
Dental implants help preserve remaining bone tissue in the jaw bone and promote healthy bone growth at the same time. This is very beneficial for patients who have had missing teeth for an extended period of time. After time passes, the extent of the bone loss will increase and may cause facial structure and appearance to change or can affect the strength of surrounding teeth. Patients can see their dental implants last permanently by brushing and flossing every day and regularly visiting the dentist for hygiene appointments.
