With the holiday season comes plenty of photo opportunities with friends and family. Rather than hide your smile to keep your missing teeth a secret, consider getting dental implants with the help of Dr. Codelli. One of the many great things about implants is they do so much more than boost your overall confidence. Your life can change exponentially when you have quality implants.
Working with a periodontist to get implants is about more than just the visual aesthetic they provide. If you currently have dentures, then you’re already familiar with how they aren’t always as secure as you might like for them to be, which can leave you feeling self-conscious every time you eat or speak. Because implants act like your natural teeth, you don’t have to worry about anything slipping out of place. There’s also the fact you’ll be saving the jawbone around your teeth where gaps exist, which means your face doesn’t take on an aged appearance.
In regards to what you can expect during the placement of your dental implants, once Dr. Codelli positions the implant in your jaw, he’ll wait three to six months until the implant joins with your bones, much in the same way your teeth has natural roots. Once the fusion is complete, we’ll add an abutment on top of the implant before placing a crown on top of that. We’d be more than happy to sit down with you to go into further detail about the process so you’re well-informed, and so we can better address any anxiety you might feel about the procedure.
