Advantages to Implants

While a seemingly in-depth procedure like placing a dental implant can be intimidating at first, the process is simpler than many people may think. Dr. Kamel first ensures you are a good candidate for implants, which includes being willing to care for your teeth and having sufficient jaw bone density. If you are a good candidate, you may be able to enjoy these other benefits to implants:

  • Natural-looking teeth: Implants are topped with crowns that look like your real teeth – meaning people are not likely to notice.
  • Easy to maintain: Caring for implants is the same as caring for your real teeth. Just brush and floss every day and see your dentist for regular checkups.
  • Long-lasting solutions: With proper care, implants last for decades or even a lifetime.
  • Eat your favorite foods: Implants are solidly in place, which means you can eat all of your favorite foods without worrying about slipping or the implant falling out.

The Process of Placing Implants

Our dentist places dental implants in Woodbury, MN by first embedding a post, which is typically made of titanium, directly into the jaw bone. The post fuses to the bone through a process known as osseointegration. With successful osseointegration, the implant stays in place and just requires regular maintenance and checkups. The final step is to top it with a natural-looking crown.
