— Can you explain the dental implant procedure?
Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. The process involves surgically placing a titanium implant into the jawbone, followed by your Dentist attaching a crown. We offer consultations to assess your suitability for implants.
— What are the benefits of dental implants compared to other tooth replacement options?
Dental implants provide exceptional stability, function, and aesthetics. They stimulate bone growth, prevent bone loss, and do not require adjacent teeth to be modified.
— What is bone grafting, and when is it necessary?
Bone grafting is a procedure to augment jawbone density for dental implant placement. It’s necessary when there’s insufficient bone to support implants. Our surgeons are experts in bone grafting techniques.
— Are there any specific precautions to take before bone grafting surgery?
Before bone grafting, avoid smoking and alcohol, and inform us about any medications you’re taking. We will provide comprehensive pre-operative instructions during your consultation.
— What should I avoid doing after bone grafting surgery?
After surgery, it’s important to refrain from vigorous exercise, smoking, and consuming hard or crunchy foods. Follow our post-operative care guidelines for a successful recovery.
