How long does a tooth implant surgery take?

The surgery itself usually lasts between one and two hours. However, the entire process, from preparing the implant site to the final restoration of the tooth, can take up to 3 to 6 months.

Can I get cavities with dental implants?

No, your dental implants cannot grow cavities. Tooth implants are not susceptible to decay. This is because the tooth implant is an artificial material. It’s not natural, so it cannot grow cavities.

Are tooth implants susceptible to plaque?

While dental implants are not susceptible to tooth decay or cavities, they can still develop plaque. Plaque can become hard and turn into tartar if you don’t have a dentist remove them. Additionally, this can lead to gum disease. If plaque forms on dental implants, it can eventually lead to implantitis, an inflammation of the tissues around the implant. It is important to see your dentist regularly for professional cleanings.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Good candidates for dental implants are patients with healthy oral tissues and sufficient bone mass to support the implant. Moreover, dental implants are a good option for people who are missing one or more teeth and want to replace them with a permanent solution. They are also a good option for people who do not want to wear dentures.

Do dental implants look like natural teeth?

Yes, dental implants can look like natural teeth. In fact, many people choose dental implants because they provide a more natural-looking solution than other options, such as dentures. Dental implants are made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth so they blend in with your smile. If you’re considering dental implants, be sure to consult with a skilled implant dentist who can help you achieve the results you desire.

How do I clean my dental implants?

When it comes to cleaning your dental implants, the best thing you can do is to brush and floss them regularly, just as you would with your natural teeth. You should use an extra soft toothbrush and use a gentle hand when brushing, and avoid using any abrasive kinds of toothpaste. When cleaning around the implant, make sure to use gentle circular motions. Rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide or mouthwash once a day. This will help kill any bacteria on and around the implant site.

The Restoration

A dental crown, bridge, or denture can all be used in combination with a dental implant to replace missing teeth. The type of restoration used will be determined based on the number of missing teeth. The dental restoration will be custom designed and fabricated to blend with the natural smile and permanently attached to the abutment on the dental implant.

The Abutment

When the implant post fully heals and fuses with the bone, about 2-3 months after surgery, Dr. Dall’Olmo will use an abutment to secure the final dental restoration. The abutment is attached to the post and protrudes from the gum line to be used as an anchor.

The Implant Post

A small threaded screw, the implant post is made from biocompatible titanium. The implant post will be strategically and surgically implanted into the jaw bone. The post acts as a prosthetic root, and will naturally fuse with bone creating a lasting bond.

Dr. Dall’Olmo provides personalized and comprehensive dental implant services to all patients. patients will receive a thorough oral health exam and analysis to determine the best treatment option for their individual needs. Dr. Dall’Olmo offers free dental implant consultations where patients can learn about the implant procedure, express their concerns, and begin to build a trusting relationship with their dentist.

Dental Implant Options

  • Single Dental Implant: Single implants are like a prosthetic tooth. Used to replace one missing tooth, the small titanium post is surgically implanted into the jaw at the site of the missing tooth root. Once healed, the implant is capped with a dental crown that will be custom designed to blend seamlessly with your natural smile.
  • Dental Implant Secured Denture or Bridge: Traditional dental bridges or dentures can now be secured using dental implants. Dental implant secured dentures provide added support, prevent embarrassing slippage and do not require additional special maintenance such as adhesives.
  • All-On-Four®: All-On-Four dental implants use strategic planning, four small implants, and a denture to replace a full arch of missing teeth. All- On-Four is ideal for patients with compromised bone structure and allows Dr. Dall’Olmo to optimize healthy tissue to secure a dental restoration for the replacement of a full arch of missing teeth.
  • Teeth In A Day®: Also referred to as immediate load dental implants, teeth in a day are a combination of careful pre-treatment planning and effective implant placement. Teeth in a day can allow patients to receive their dental implants and temporary dental restoration in just one visit to our Santa Monica dentist office. Not all patients are candidates for Teeth In A Day.
