Several months after you receive your dental implant, your mouth will be ready to receive an implant restoration (typically a type of dental crown). Dr. Karagiannis will place your new restoration over the already-placed implant anchor to ensure optimal function and beauty for your smile. After your new tooth is placed, it will function and look like a natural tooth. It is important to care for your new dental implant with the same high-quality care as is recommended for the rest of your natural teeth.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Durable: With the proper care, implants can last an entire lifetime.
- Convenience: Dental implants fuse with your bone, making them a permanent solution and eliminating any need for dental adhesives. It is also easier to eat and speak with dental implants than with dentures.
- Aesthetically Appealing: Implants fuse with your bone and are modeled after the rest of your teeth, making them look and feel just like a natural tooth.
