A dental implant is a piece of medical-grade titanium used to replace a tooth’s root. Implants are biocompatible, meaning once they’re inserted, the body accepts them naturally.
Implants are “surgically” placed under the same conditions as one would experience during a filling or an extraction. If you’ve had a tooth filled, crowned, or extracted then you can handle an implant! They provide strong structural support for dentures or crowns. Implants support the replacement of a single tooth, multiple teeth, or larger dental appliances.
Implants are the foundation for a number of esthetically beautiful and functional tooth replacements. They can support devices like porcelain crowns or dentures, and they provide the capability to chew foods with all the strength of a natural tooth.
At Suncook Dental, we use Implant Direct, a comprehensive implant resource that simplifies every part of the implant process. We provide information about each aspect of the procedure, including care and healing.
Dental implant surgery is performed without sedation using a local anesthetic. In the case of anxiety, we offer an oral sedative to make you more comfortable. The procedure is simple and is similar to having a tooth extracted. The appointment will last about 90 minutes, with the surgery taking only around 20 minutes. Initial healing takes about a week, and within a few months, the bone will have grown firmly around the new implant.
At Suncook Dental, we accept most insurance carriers, and we offer a variety of payment options for your convenience. Visit our family-owned dental office today! We’ll take care of you, and leave you smiling a little brighter.
