Made Ya Smile Dental is proud to offer comprehensive, effective, high-quality solutions to Rosenberg, TX patients who have lost or damaged teeth. Dental implants are an ideal solution that offers long-term benefits to your oral health. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone over time to offer solid support while replacing the crowns and roots of teeth. This treatment method allows you to receive a restoration that resembles your natural tooth. Implants are made of titanium posts and natural-looking crowns, bridges, or dentures and can effectively replace any number of damaged on missing teeth.
Dr. Capps can help you decide if dental implants are the right choice for you. Lost teeth should be addressed and replaced, but the loss does not have to affect your communication and ability to eat. For more information on implant dentistry options, contact our friendly Made Ya Smile team and schedule your implant consultation today.
Dental implants could be a great choice to restore your smile if you experienced tooth loss, or if you have teeth that are decayed or damaged beyond our ability to restore them. Our patients commonly elect to have implants rather than removable replacement options because of the security and permanence this solution provides. If you are pregnant, have certain systemic medical conditions, or if you use tobacco products then dental implants may not be a good choice. Patients who have suffered bone loss in their jaws may need to have a bone grafting procedure before getting implants to restore proper structure to the area.
What To Expect
The process of placing your dental implants will begin with the use of local anesthetics to numb your jaw thoroughly. Our team is ready to offer additional sedation options to patients who request it. Dr. Capps will make a small incision in the gums which will allow him to place your implant with precision at the desired location along your jaw. We will then use sutures to close up the site while leaving a small portion of the new implant exposed. For a few months, your implant will be given time to set properly into your bone before we proceed. During this time, a temporary restoration can be placed over the implant depending on your unique situation. Once proper healing has occurred, our team will take a mold of your mouth and create a customized dental appliance that will attach to your implant post to complete the procedure.
Once your dental implant has been positioned properly, we will need to give your mouth time to properly heal from the procedure before placing a restoration option in your mouth. We will give you instructions on how to properly care for you during this time. If you encounter unexpected symptoms during this time be sure to contact our team right away and we will be sure to evaluate it for you. Bruising, swelling and minor discomfort in your gums and jaw are not uncommon following this procedure and can typically be relieved with prescription pain medications along with cold compresses.
Dental implants will usually need 3 – 6 months to fully integrate with your surrounding bone. After this process has completed, we will schedule an appointment to create an impression of your mouth so that a customized restoration appliance can be created. Once the restoration appliance has been completed and arrives at our office, we will schedule an appointment so Dr. Capps can attach the appliance to the post of your implant.
Dental implants function and appear similar to real teeth and should be cared for in the same way. Our team will be sure to share the best methods for brushing and flossing each day to make sure that your soft tissues are not harmed and that your implant stays functional for as long as possible. During your bi-annual cleaning and exam visits our team will also be checking the condition of the implant to make any adjustments as needed.
Our financial team will contact your insurance provider to determine if your dental implants are covered through your benefits schedule. Our team at Made Ya Smile believes in helping each of our patients get the high-quality, affordable care they need to have a happy, healthy smile, and if there are any out-of-pocket costs we are ready to work with you to find affordable medical financing. Our office in Rosenberg, TX accepts several forms of payment, and we are always ready to help you find treatment options that fit within your budget.
