Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial teeth supported by implanted titanium tooth roots. They replace missing teeth or those that are severely decayed and require extraction, to give you the beautiful smile you deserve.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Choosing dental implants to restore your smile offers numerous benefits including:

  • Self confidence
  • No more gaps
  • An aesthetically pleasing smile
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech

Dr. Rahman specializes in dental implant placement and has more than two decades of cosmetic dentistry experience.

Are dental implants right for me?

To find out if dental implants are the right cosmetic procedure for you, Dr. Rahman and his team review your medical history, take dental X-rays, and examine your teeth and gums. If your jawbone is strong enough to support implants, you may be a good candidate for the procedure. If not, bone grafting prior to implant placement is an option.

You must be in good overall health and willing to commit to the several months it takes for implants to heal.

What happens during dental implant placement?

When you arrive for dental implant placement at Floral Dental Care, PC, Dr. Rahman numbs the treatment area so you don’t feel any pain. He and his team offer sedation dentistry to help you feel calm and relaxed.

He surgically implants artificial tooth roots into your jawbone and allows several months of healing time for bone to grow around the implants and stabilize them.

Once healing is complete, Dr. Rahman can attach connector posts to the implants and digitally scan your mouth to create new custom crowns. He secures the crowns to the implants to give you a full set of beautiful teeth.

How should I care for dental implants?

If you care for your new implants properly, they can last a lifetime. Brush your teeth at least twice daily using fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily, and see Dr. Rahman and his team every six months for routine dental cleanings and exams.

Don’t chew on popcorn kernels, hard candies, or ice, and avoid opening packages with your teeth. Contact the Floral Dental Care, PC, team right away if your implants become loose or damaged.

Don’t let unsightly or missing teeth diminish your confidence. Schedule an appointment with Floral Dental Care, PC, over the phone or online to find out if dental implants are right for you.
