Dental Implants Q & A
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that the office of Iwona Wysocka, DDS, surgically places into your jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots.
They fuse to your natural bone so that they’re sturdy and secure enough to function as bases for artificial teeth, including dentures, bridges, or crowns.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer you benefits related to:
Dental implants and their false teeth counterparts feel just like your natural teeth. For this reason, they’re more comfortable, easier to eat with, and easier to talk with than traditional removable dentures.
If you take care of your teeth by flossing, brushing and visiting Iwona Wysocka, DDS, for professional cleanings regularly, your implants can last several years to a lifetime.
Overall, dental implants allow for much better oral health than other options. In contrast to many other dental prosthetics, Dr. Iwona Wysocka doesn’t have to file down your teeth in order to place your dental implants.
Dental implants can also stop bone loss and teeth shifting. In addition, because she doesn’t cement them to supporting teeth or crowns, you can reach between dental implant teeth and floss.
Are dental implants right for me?
Dental implants may be a great option for you if you’ve lost teeth from decay, disease, or injury.
In order for Dr. Iwona Wysocka to consider you as a candidate for dental implants, you must have healthy gums and bone that is strong enough to hold dental implants in place. You must also agree to observe good oral hygiene practices after Dr. Iwona Wysocka places your implants.
If you have any of the following conditions or participate in any of the following lifestyle choices, dental implants may not work for you:
- Diabetes, heart disease, and other uncontrolled chronic conditions
- Heavy smoking
- Cancer in the neck or head area being treated by radiation
To discover if dental implants are right for you, schedule an appointment with Iwona Wysocka, DDS.
How long do dental implants take to heal?
After placement, your dental implant can take several months to heal. During the healing process, especially right after your procedure, you may experience soreness. You can treat this with over the counter medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
Once the area of implant placement heals, Dr. Iwona Wysocka can place your denture, crown, or bridge on top of the implant to act as your replacement tooth.
