When patients come to our dental practice to get dental implants, they will be seen by one of our top-notch dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Andrea Patterson. A dental implant in Albuquerque NM is a very popular way for patients to have a missing tooth replaced at our office because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Our dentist will first determine whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants. You will be checked that your jawbone is healthy enough and thick enough to be able to completely heal from the dental implant surgery, and so that the new titanium dental implant root can fully fuse to it during the recovery process. Once you are determined to be a good candidate for this procedure, one dental implant root will be surgically inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a healing period of several months. Once our dentist finds that the healing has completed, and that the dental implant root has completely fuse to the jawbone, a beautiful porcelain crown will be made to be permanently attached to the top of the new dental implant root. Once this occurs, your new dental implant will be complete. All you will need to do to take care of it is to make sure that you have a great at-home tooth cleaning regimen, and that you have regular dental cleanings every six months to help keep your gums in excellent condition. The dental implant will not only look just like a permanent tooth, but it will allow you to eat anything you want in total comfort.
