Dental Implant Maintenance in New Braunfels, TX

Dental Implants vs. Dentures in Chandler AZDental implants are excellent permanent tooth replacement options. They do not require additional adjustments or future replacement like other options often will. Dental implants are fully integrated into the jawbone and are brushed and flossed in the same manner as natural teeth. Dr. Todd Smith and Dr. Michael Cole provide implant restoration and dental care in New Braunfels, TX.

Once you have decided that the implant option is right for you, the tooth implant procedure can begin. Dr. Smith and Dr. Cole will refer you to a specialist, usually an oral surgeon or a periodontist, to have the implant portion surgically placed into the jawbone. The titanium or ceramic implant is allowed to fully integrate into your bone over the course of about three months. Once the specialist has given the all clear for your dental implant to be restored, Dr. Smith and Dr. Cole will then permanently restore your dental implant with a specialized crown.

Maintaining your dental implants is as equally as important as the maintenance of your natural teeth. Regular dental visits are recommended so that a thorough exam and cleaning may be rendered, and to check the health of your dental implants. Your dental hygienist will clean your implants with special instruments, usually made of plastic or resin. Plaque and tartar can accumulate on any portion of the implant that is exposed in the oral cavity, and it is important for these deposits to be removed. Your implant will also be evaluated for any mobility. If you notice any mobility between re-care visits, contact the office immediately to schedule an examination.

Dental implants can restore your smile and improve the overall health of your dentition. If you believe that this tooth implant procedure may be the right option for you and are seeking implant dental care in the New Braunfels, TX area, contact Dr. Smith and Dr. Cole today to schedule your tooth implant procedure consultation.
