The Basics: What to Expect When You Get Dental Implants

What to Expect When You Get Dental Implants

It’s no surprise. The more we understand about a procedure, the less anxious we will be to have it done. This is exactly why Mission Hills Family Dental has decided to offer these basics on what to expect when you get dental implants. When it comes to dental implants, dentists like Dr. Nicolle Miller exhibit both the gentility and expertise to answer your questions and ease your nerves. If you have any further questions or would like an assessment, please feel free to contact us.

What are dental implants made of?

Dental implants are small titanium posts fused with your jaw. After a short period of healing, the implant is topped with a crown. This ensures a natural look and feel.

Will the dental implants hurt?

At Mission Hills Family Dental, Dr. Miller’s team takes every precaution to keep you comfortable and at ease. If you’d like to learn more options for pain reduction and sedation dentistry, feel free to call our office in San Marcos. You can also read our patient reviews here.

Can the implant fall out?

No. Your dental implant will act as an anchor for your crown. Not only will the final result look as natural as your original, healthy teeth…It will be as steady and permanent as your other teeth.

Will the dental implants be hard to care for?

Good news again! So long as you maintain healthy oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and regular dentist appointments, you’ve no need to worry for additional care-taking.

Now that you’ve gotten the basics, it doesn’t seem so scary, right? To schedule your first visit with Dr. Miller or your free implant consultation, just give us a call. We look forward to serving you soon.
