Before dental implants were created, dentures and dental bridges were the only options for those looking to replace a missing tooth or dental implantsteeth in their mouth. Dental implants are placed in the area where the missing tooth was. They are anchored to the jawbone directly and provide a sturdy foundation. In some cases, dental implants can even be used to attach dentures. Dr. John Lewis at Wichita Dental Group in Wichita, KS is experienced with dental implants and can suggest the treatment to valid candidates.

Dental Implant Process in Wichita

The best candidate is someone with the proper bone density to sustain the dental implant. These dental implants require strict oral hygiene just like natural teeth in the mouth.

Dental implants are created in order to mimic both the feel and look of natural teeth in the patient’s mouth. They are made of a synthetic material similar to ceramic or porcelain. After the dental implant is placed there is a period of time that is required in order for the implant to bond properly with the jawbone. This typically happens within 3 to 6 months of the procedure. Afterward, a dental crown will be placed and is the visible portion of the dental implant. The dental crown will match the rest of your smile and will return full function to your bite.
