What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

You may wonder why you should consider implants when traditional restorations such as bridges and dentures are more affordable. While replacing a missing tooth or teeth with a traditional bridge or denture does have lower upfront costs, dental implants offer a number of advantages, including:

Saving Your Jawbone

When you lose a tooth, the missing tooth root causes the bone tissue in your jawbone to begin to deteriorate. This is because the roots of your natural teeth provide important signals to your jaw, keeping it healthy and strong. Implants act like bionic tooth roots and provide the necessary stimulation to the bone in your jaw to stop further atrophy.

Unmatched Stability

Because the titanium post of an implant effectively becomes a part of your jaw, a crown, bridge, or denture supported by a dental implant is anchored securely in place. Your restoration will not slip, allowing you to speak clearly without having to worry about smacking and clicking. You can also get back to eating all of your favorite foods again.

A Longterm Solution

The advanced materials used for crowns, bridges, and dentures can last a decade or more but will eventually need replacement. In contrast, a dental implant can provide a lifetime of service with proper care and regular checkups.

Dental Implants Treatment Timeline

Every patient that visits Sun City Dental in El Paso for dental implants will have a unique timeline for their treatment. Someone with good oral health replacing one tooth with an implant-supported crown will have a different timeframe when compared to someone with low bone density and gum disease interested in replacing multiple teeth. That being said, patients can expect their treatment to include:
Every patient will have a unique timeline for their dental implant treatment.
Every patient will have a unique timeline for their dental implant treatment.

Initial Consultation

Dr. Gonzalez will review your candidacy and answer any questions you may have regarding treatment. If you require preparatory care, we will schedule any necessary treatments to restore your candidacy before proceeding with implant placement.

Preparatory Treatment

This stage is only required for patients that need treatment prior to surgery to restore their candidacy for implants such as tooth extraction, gum disease treatment, or bone grafting. Depending on the amount of care required, treatment for some conditions may extent treatment by up to a year.

First Surgery

Dr. Gonzalez will administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort before making small incisions in your gums. He will then place implant posts in your jaw using advanced surgical guides that provide him with pinpoint accuracy for the best possible results.

Recovery

It takes between four to six months for the bone in your jaw to heal around the implant in a process known as osseointegration. Once fully healed, the implant will fuse with your jawbone and will act as an artificial tooth root.

Abutment Placement

An abutment is a small connector used to attach your final restoration to your implant. During a second surgery, Dr. Gonzalez will again make small incisions in your gums to place the abutment to your implant.

Recovery

It takes six to twelve weeks for your gums to properly heal around the newly placed abutment.

Final Restoration

Once you are all healed from the abutment placement, Dr. Gonazalez will place your final crown, bridge, or denture to restore the form and function back to your smile.
