What are dental implants?
Dental implants are metal frames that are utilized as a support for interchangeable or long-lasting teeth. Dr. Hogan can make these replacement teeth resemble that of the natural teeth for a replicative appearance. One of the greatest benefits to dental implants is that you won’t have to be concerned about an unnatural-looking smile.
What are some benefits of dental implants?
Dental implantation can enhance your dental health and wellness by:
- Improving the appearance of your smile
- Restoring your self-confidence
- Making your speech capabilities easier and clearer
- Enhancing your comfortability with chewing food
Dental implants also do not require any embarrassing removal and are built to last for the long term.
Is dental implantation a painful process?
Dr. Hogan is a board-certified dental implantologist and makes your safety and comfort his top priority. Many people who have received dental implants in the past have known it to be a relatively painless procedure. Using a local anesthetic, Dr. Hogan can ensure your comfort throughout the dental implant process. Some people may temporarily experience mild soreness. However, this can be remedied with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Am I a good candidate to receive a dental implant?
Dental implantation may be right for you if you:
- Have healthy gums and adequate bone health
- Are committed to good oral hygiene
- Visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and care
- Do not smoke
If you are diagnosed with a chronic disorder such as diabetes or heart disease, or you have undergone radiation therapy, consult with Dr. Hogan to determine if dental implants may be right for you.
