When it comes to the replacement of missing teeth, dental implants are among the most effective restorative dentistry treatments. Implant-supported dental restorations represent the strongest, most stable, and most durable method of replacing missing teeth that currently exists. Patients emerge from treatment with their oral health and ability to bite, chew, speak, and smile with ease and confidence completely restored.
Furthermore, implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures are extremely easy to take care of once they have been attached to the implants and the gums have healed around them. Patients simply have to care for their replacement teeth as they would their natural teeth, brushing and flossing at least twice a day and after each meal, in addition to visiting the dentist at least twice a year for oral exams and professional cleanings. While the restorations themselves might eventually need to be replaced, the dental implant posts should last for decades, and possibly even a lifetime.
Patients should be aware, however, that the placement of dental implants is an invasive surgical procedure and, as such, requires a period of recovery. Dr. Jose Valenzuela is careful to discuss dental implants aftercare in detail during consultations at his Los Algodones, Mexico - Baja California practice so that patients know precisely what to expect before committing to treatment.
