Ucare Dental offers dental implants to patients who may need them. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. It is an option for patients who have lost a tooth to an injury, disease, or another reason.
After a consultation, we will determine what the best course of action is. To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A dental implant is a metal post that a periodontist or oral surgeon surgically positions into the jaw. Once in place and bone surrounding the implant has had time to heal, a replacement tooth is attached to the post.
Implants are stronger than natural teeth and generally last 10-20 years. Dental implants can be brushed and flossed like natural teeth and do not require removal like dentures or partials. Practicing good oral hygiene and staying regular on checkups with dentists means that dental implants can last a lifetime. After the procedure, we will help you develop a care plan to maintain the health of your teeth.
