What Are Dental Implants?
Replacing extracted or lost teeth are important to the general health and function of the mouth. Pipe Creek Dental Center is excited to provide high-quality dental implants for tooth restoration. Implants serve as normal teeth in terms of function and appearance and allow recipients to eat a normal and healthy diet. An implant consists of a sturdy post that functions as an artificial tooth root, and a specially crafted crown, bridge, or full arch is used as the viewable part of the lost tooth (or teeth). Set up an appointment with Dr. Walker in Pipe Creek, TX to find out more about our fixed implant solutions.
What Can I Expect from Dental Implants?
Getting fixed implants involves careful placement of the post and the attachment of a lifelike replacement of the visible portion, including full-arch dentures, bridges, and crowns. Once your mouth is prepped, it will be numbed with anesthesia. Our team may also use sedation to help you feel more at ease throughout your procedure. The metal post will be carefully secured within your jawbone. When the surgical site has healed (usually several months later), we will install a specially made implant crown, denture, or full-arch piece and assess the alignment of your bite.
Patients may notice some swelling, bruising, and pain at the site of an implant. Prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses can help ease post-op aches or pains. Once the titanium implant has fused with the jaw and the visible part of the implant is in place, it's essential to follow good oral hygiene with proper brushing and flossing techniques. When patients visit Pipe Creek Dental Center for regular appointments, we use tools to disinfect their implants and check their condition.

Dental Implants FAQs
Are dental implants painful?
We aim to relieve as much pain as possible for our patients during this procedure, and applying a local anesthetic helps us to do that. We are able to numb the surrounding nerves and keep our patients from feeling any pain while the implants are installed. You should not experience any pain as a result of this procedure, although various pressure and discomfort are not uncommon.
How long will my implants last?
Dental implants, in ideal procedures, are built to be permanent teeth replacements. These contrast with dentures, which need to be replaced periodically and can wear down faster. With proper upkeep, including brushing and flossing twice a day and regular cleanings and exams, you can expect your dental implants to last no less than 30 years.
Should I get dental implants or dentures?
The type of dental procedure you get done depends on a variety of factors. At Pipe Creek Dental Center, patients looking for easier maintenance often prefer implants, as dentures require cleaning, upkeep, and replacement. In addition, with dental implants, there is no need for removing them or changing your diet to eat or avoid certain foods, which many patients at our Pipe Creek, TX office find appealing.
