Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium tooth roots used to support artificial teeth. The implants look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. The McCarthy Dental team often places single-unit dental implants without sedation.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Some of the many benefits of choosing dental implants with the McCarthy Dental team include:

  • Natural-looking teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • No more gaps
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier chewing
  • Less adjacent teeth shifting
  • Improved self-confidence

McCarthy Dental experts use the latest techniques and quality dental implants to give you the best possible outcome. They can replace just one missing tooth or multiple teeth during a smile makeover.

Are dental implants right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the McCarthy Dental team reviews your oral health history, examines your teeth and gums, and takes digital X-rays to get a more in-depth look at structures in your mouth. If you’re missing one or more permanent teeth and desire a beautiful smile, implants might be the solution you’ve been searching for.

What should I expect during dental implant placement?

When you arrive at McCarthy Dental for implant placement, friendly staff members greet you. You relax in a comfortable dental chair while your provider numbs the treatment area. They make a tiny incision for each implant and secure it into your jawbone. You might be able to wear temporary crowns while the treatment area heals.

What happens after the procedure?

Over time as the bone heals around the implants, you return to McCarthy Dental to get fitted for permanent crowns, which are artificial teeth that attach to dental implants. When your custom-fit crowns are ready, your dentist securely places them on the titanium posts to give you a full set of beautiful, natural-looking teeth. 

Your new implants can last a lifetime if you care for them properly. Brush your teeth twice daily, floss every day, and avoid chewing on hard objects. Wear a mouthguard at night if you’re prone to teeth grinding.

Don’t live with missing or severely damaged teeth when a long-lasting solution is within reach. When you’re ready for the aesthetically pleasing smile you’re proud of, schedule a consultation with McCarthy Dental over the phone or online to find out if dental implants are right for you.
