When you are missing a tooth, the look, feel, and function of your smile is thrown off. Fortunately for our patients in Fayette County, Linton Dental provides dental implants to meet your tooth replacement needs. A dental implant involves three major pieces.
First, there is a titanium post that is surgically implanted beneath your soft tissues. Then, an abutment is attached to the healed post. Finally, a dental crown is attached to the abutment.
Patients love dental implants because once they are completely healed, their restoration has tooth-root functionality along with natural tooth aesthetics.

What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer a wide variety of benefits including no dietary restrictions, no extra care needed in your oral hygiene routine, improved speech and chewing patterns, higher self-esteem, and long-term durability.
They are considered the premier tooth replacement method in restorative dentistry because of their high patient satisfaction rate.
How long does it take for my dental implants to heal?
It can take anywhere from 3-6 months for the titanium post part of your dental implant to completely heal after the surgical procedure.
It’s important not to rush the healing process, as this post is what gives you the functionality that you desire from your dental implant. Once it is completely healed, an abutment and dental crown can be attached to it to fully restore your tooth’s aesthetics.
How should I care for my dental implants?
One of the major benefits of dental implants is that they do not require any extra care beyond your regular brushing and flossing patterns. Unlike a dental bridge, they are surgically implanted into your jaw bone so none of the parts are above your soft tissue besides the dental crown.
Just make sure that you are maintaining good oral hygiene habits, and keeping the implant site clean while it heals. Dr. Linton and Dr. Davis will provide you with appropriate aftercare instructions following your surgical procedure.
