Every day at Emanuel Kontos, DMD, we see patients with badly damaged teeth due to a variety of causes. When these patients learn about dental implants, they want to experience the benefits of this wonderful tooth replacement option for themselves.
Dr. Kontos and his professional team are committed to your smile success and ready to give you a restored smile you’ll feel confident showing off. Dental implants are the gold standard in treatment options to help you restore optimal oral health.
Damaged or missing teeth can create embarrassment and are difficult to hide. Those unwanted spaces in your smile can draw in debris, wreak havoc on your oral health, and cause your self-esteem to suffer. Fortunately, dental implants from Dr. Kontos offer a fabulous alternative that can restore your confidence, support success in careers and relationships, and enhance the natural appearance of your smile.
Dental implants are completely safe. They’re typically made from titanium, a biocompatible material that integrates seamlessly into your jawbone. Implants protect vulnerable parts of your mouth and help protect you from harmful bacteria. They also protect your jawbone and help it to regenerate strong tissue.
If you would like to experience these benefits for yourself, we encourage you to call Dr. Emanuel Kontos for a no-obligation consultation.
Dental implants can last for a lifetime with proper care. The titanium post your new tooth is attached to integrates with your jawbone, so it’s extremely durable.
The dental crown that’s set on the titanium post isn’t as durable as the metal implant itself. Crowns tend to last for up to 10 to 15 years, sometimes even longer with special care. The location of the implant in your mouth can also affect how long it lasts—teeth in the back of your mouth are put under more stress due to their role in chewing.
Immediately after your procedure, you’ll need to be careful around the area of your implant. Improper care can threaten your oral health and interfere with the healing process. Eating soft foods and being careful when you rinse your mouth or spit can help ensure success.
To take care of your dental implants in the long term, just brush and floss your teeth like usual. Dental implants can be treated just like a natural tooth, so they shouldn’t require any extra care. Visiting Dr. Kontos every six months for a regular appointment also helps him ensure the lasting health of your implant.
