“A screw in my jaw?” patients always look at me in wonder. Followed up with a question of “So how the heck does that work?”
To most people, a dental implant sounds like a big procedure. However, after performing hundreds of dental implants on my patients, I can confidently assure them that dental implants are common place, and dare I say, even easy!
Dental implants are the highest standard of care for replacing teeth that have been, or will need to be, removed. That is because they are fixed in place, permanent, strong, unable to get cavities, and they function like real teeth. Not to mention, the dental implants we do at Cleveland Smile Center look fantastic when you smile!
We can use dental implants to replace a single missing tooth , or the entire top or bottom row of teeth. We can also use dental implants to hold your dentures in place when chewing. The process of getting dental implants takes 3-6 months to complete, this allows for the body to heal gracefully and comfortably. We don’t rush perfection!
