Common Questions About Dental Implants
What is the success rate for dental implants?
Dental implants have a success rate that frequently exceeds 95%. The competence of the oral surgeon, the patient's overall health, and postoperative care all influence their success. With Dr. Bobier's extensive expertise in dental implants, you can anticipate outstanding results that are tailored to your specific dental requirements.
How long does the dental implant procedure take?
Depending on the quantity of implants and the complexity of the case, the duration of the dental implant process can vary. Typically, initial implant placement requires a single surgery followed by a period of recovery. Restorative procedures, such as the attachment of crowns or bridges, follow. Dr. Bobier will explain a customized treatment plan in detail.
What are the alternatives to dental implants?
If dental implants are not an option for you, bridges and dentures are alternatives. However, these alternatives may not offer the same long term benefits in terms of durability and bone preservation. Dr. Bobier will conduct a comprehensive consultation to assist you in selecting the optimal dental treatment.
Do dental implants require special care?
Normal oral hygiene practices, such as brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups, are sufficient for caring for dental implants. Dr. Bobier will provide you with specific maintenance instructions tailored to your implant type and overall oral health condition.
