Did you know that three million Americans have dental implants—a number that is growing by 500,000 each year? The increasing rate of dental implants isn’t surprising given the success rate of this restorative procedure. The modern-day dental implant is durable, long-lasting, and helps restore a beautiful and healthy smile. Find out more about where to go for the dental implants Delaware residents choose, and how these natural-looking replacements for missing teeth can help you.
How Reliable Are the Dental Implants Delaware Patients Choose?
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), the success rate of dental implants is 98 percent. Not bad for a solution that addresses both aesthetic and functional issues caused by missing teeth.
At Limestone Dental, Dr. David Nibouar and Dr. Matt Baran have a collective 43-plus years of experience that includes providing affordable dental implants in Delaware for patients from all over New Castle County (and beyond).
In addition to an impeccable success rate, there are even more benefits of dental implants, which include:
- Few Maintenance Issues
While patients can be assured that their dental implants are successfully in-place and fully functional, they can also relax knowing they can brush and floss normally to care for their new replacement teeth.
- More Natural Look and Feel
Opposed to alternate options for replacing missing teeth, such as dentures, dental implants mirror the natural look and feel of your real teeth.
- Improved Functionality
Missing teeth can disrupt the alignment of the teeth and jaw. Dental implants prevent problems that result from misalignment such as teeth grinding and wear to the enamel. After initial recovery, patients can chew, eat, and speak normally.
How Fast Can You Get the Best Dental Implants in Delaware?
It’s important for patients to understand that acquiring dental implants involves surgery. Any surgery requires some amount of healing time.The longest portion of the dental implant process is the healing time in which the implant fuses to the jawbone. Generally, a full dental implant procedure takes up to a couple of months requiring a few stages:
- Removal of the damaged tooth
- Preparation of the jawbone for dental implant surgery
- Placement of the crown
The amount of time it takes for each stage depends on several factors:
- Individual patient health
- Whether bone grafting is required or not
- How well the gums have healed following the implant surgery
Although certain cases allow for dental implants to be completed during one procedure, Dr. Nibouar and Dr. Baran will always put the safety of the patient first. It’s our goal at Limestone Dental to try to find a quick and effective dental solution but to also never compromise the safety and recovery of our patients.
It’s normal to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort following dental implant surgery, but typically our patients recover in no time and are pleased with their durable, attractive, and long-lasting dental implants.
