Your dentist will recommend how often to have routine checkups. Many people should see their dentist once or twice a year.
They will examine your teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay, gingivitis, and other health problems, and recommend treatment.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
To receive an implant, you need to have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant.
An anchor and post are placed in your jawbone. The anchor functions as the tooth root and is made from metals such as titanium.
The post extends out of the anchor and a crown is attached to the post. It takes 3 to 6 months for the jawbone to grow around the anchor and hold it in place.
If you have decay or tooth damage, you may require fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, dentures, root canal treatments, etc. If a tooth can’t be saved it may require extraction.
This may be the case for Wisdom Teeth that are causing pain. Access Dental takes every effort to make extractions pain free.
