Here at Precision Dentistry and Implants, we believe that the only way for our patients to make the best decision regarding their missing teeth is if they are well educated on their potential treatment options. We gladly accept any and all questions our patients may have about treatment with dental implants. That said, we’ve begun to notice that some questions get asked far more frequently than others. In order to make things easier on our Hill Country, TX area patients, we’ve gone ahead and gathered up the questions that get asked the most at our Kerrville and Fredericksburg offices. Listed below are these questions and their answers, straight from Dr. Matthew Huff himself. If you do not see your question below, feel free to contact our office and speak with one of our team members today.
The best way to find out which treatment might be best for your needs is to attend a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Matthew Huff at one of his Hill Country area offices. During this consultation, Dr. Huff will carefully examine your oral health. Then, he will question you about your smile goals and what kind of results you would like to achieve with your replacement teeth. Using the data gathered from this meeting, Dr. Huff will then be able to determine which treatments may work best for you, and let you pick from the results.
Dental implants are currently the longest lasting treatment for missing teeth. That said, the amount of time your treatment will last largely depends on you and how well you take care of them. By properly brushing and flossing them, as well as being sure to schedule and attend regular cleanings and checkups, your implants have the potential to last you the rest of your lifetime.
While there are many dentists that can place dental implants in the Hill Country area, not every dentist who provides the treatment performs the placement surgery. Some dentists choose to outsource the placement surgery, and instead focus purely on the restoration. Here at our office, Dr. Huff is trained to place dental implants, as well as restore them. When you come to our office, you can rest assured that the entirety of your treatment is performed in-house.
The amount of time the implant process takes to complete will depend on each patient’s unique condition. On average, the dental implant process takes three to six months to complete. However, this time can be extended depending on whether or not the patient requires a supplemental procedure and time to heal from that procedure before they will be able to have their implants placed.
For the most part, yes. We receive many patients that are looking to replace their dental bridge or dentures with implants. Whether or not you will be able to do so depends on your condition. Both dentures and dental bridges do nothing to protect your jawbone and gums, meaning you may need a supplemental procedure before you will be able to exchange your current restoration for one using implants.
Have you done the research and decided that dental implants may be able to provide the quality of restoration that you are looking for? Then we encourage you to contact our office and schedule a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Matthew Huff today. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
