Chicago Dental Implants Done Right
As top providers of Chicago dental implants, your dentists here at Kaufman and Kaufman Smile Design Studio live for giving our patients the best and most natural solution available to replace missing teeth. And while the results for our patients are always spectacular, sometimes on the road there, some patients can become discouraged about the process. Today we wanted to discuss and explain why your implants may take the time they do and share personal tips on what you can do to help the process.
The first thing to take into consideration with regard to your dental implants is that they can take time. On average, it will take about 6 months from start to finish for your new tooth (teeth) to be properly acclimated and ready in the mouth…but hiccups can occur. It is important to know we consider all of our patient’s cases individually and treat them all as an artist would a painting. It is very rare a great piece of art is created in a day- so your smile should not be either.
Having a strong site in which the titanium implant can be successfully bonded to the natural surrounding tissues is the most important portion of the process. Certain cases where the amount of healing time and extra steps may be taken to ensure these conditions are met include cases where patients have fragile tissues or bone surrounding the implant site. We may need to take pre-implant surgical augmentation measures into mind for the implant to not fail when it is placed. This process can take an extra 6 months, or more, in some cases.
By not only being a “patient” patient, but by monitoring your habits during your Chicago dental implants process, you will be more likely to succeed flawlessly. Avoid smoking and excessive drinking, while maintaining a balanced diet and regular at-home hygiene routine to heal properly and be set for your new amazing smile.
