Dental Implants

A common question we hear from patients is, what should they expect from an implant placement procedure? Does the procedure hurt? And how long is the recovery time for dental implants in Huntsville?

You might be surprised to learn that since Dr. King places the dental implant itself into your bone, the procedure does not cause much discomfort. Since your bone doesn't have any nerves, placing the implant is quite comfortable. Many patients even tell us that there is less discomfort with an implant procedure than a tooth extraction.

Recovery time for a tooth implant can take anywhere from four to six months. This is because your implant is actually fusing with your bone during this time and becoming a part of your dental anatomy. This process is called osseointegration, and it creates the stability that supports your new tooth and keeps your jawbone healthy since your implant acts just like a tooth root.

The process for dental implants in Huntsville, AL starts with a thorough dental examination with Dr. King. During this dental exam, our compassionate dentist will assess your oral health to make sure dental implants are right for you.

If you’re a good candidate, the next step in the process is implant placement. This means surgically implanting a strong post in your jaw that fuses with your jawbone over several months. This post is similar to a tooth root, keeping your jawbone stimulated and strong.

The next part of the process involves our dentist placing your restoration tooth. This tooth will be shaded and shaped to blend in with your smile.

Following this, you can smile again with confidence. You can laugh out loud. Also, you have done a good service for the rest of your teeth. When teeth are missing, existing teeth move toward these sockets. This changes your bite and leads to erosion, cavities, and possibly further tooth loss.

At King Dental, we think you owe it to yourself to have a healthy and beautiful smile that you can be proud of.
