Dental implants replace every part of your natural tooth. The process involves placing a durable implant into your jawbone, which permanently attaches to the jaw bone and gum tissue to become a new root for a crown.

Dental implants are even beneficial for securing bridges or dentures in place, so they feel more stable and comfortable.
The team at SmileBoutique specializes in gentle dental techniques, advanced numbing solutions, and minimally invasive oral surgery. You can feel confident that your entire dental implant procedure is going to be as comfortable as possible.
Most patients report that they feel some unusual pressure or pushing sensations, but not severe pain. Your dentist ensures you’re entirely numbed throughout every step of your dental implant procedure.
After your dental implant surgery, you may experience some swelling and soreness. Your dentist can recommend a pain-relieving medication to help you through any of these minor side effects.
Dental implants are made from highly durable materials — titanium and ceramic or porcelain — that won’t decay or break down. The reason dental implants sometimes fail is because of poor oral hygiene. After all, surrounding tissues can decay and weaken.
The team at SmileBoutique wants your dental implants to last a lifetime, and with proper oral health care, they certainly can. They spend time counseling you about proper brushing and flossing techniques and educating you about your oral health (like which foods you should avoid).
It’s very important to continue coming to the clinic every six months for teeth cleanings. Following these good oral hygiene practices helps ensure your dental implant lasts as long as possible.
