If you are looking for a dental practice where you can receive dental implants to replace your missing teeth, you should visit us at The Gentle Dentist. At our dental office, patients are able to get Garden City implants which look, feel, and function just like regular teeth; our expert dentist who is able to provide patients with precisely-placed dental implants is Dr. Amit Sood.
When a patient comes to our dental practice wanting to get dental implants, our dentist will first need to thoroughly assess the health of their jawbone. If a patient’s jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough to recover from dental implant surgery and to strongly hold a dental implant, the patient will not be a good candidate for the procedure. However, when a patient has a healthy jawbone they will most likely be an excellent candidate to get dental implants. Our dentist will then surgically insert a dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There is then a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will fully heal and the titanium dental implant root will firmly fuse to the jawbone. After this occurs, a beautiful porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant. This crown will be perfectly color-matched to the patient’s adjacent teeth, so no one will be able to tell that they have dental implants in their mouth. At this point, our patient will have his or her completed Garden City implants and they will be able to once again speak, smile, and eat in total confidence. Once a patient receives dental implants to replace their missing teeth, they will need to take care of them with regular at-home dental cleaning, and with periodic dental cleanings at our dental practice. If this occurs, our patients will most likely be able to have their dental implants last them for a lifetime.
