Dental Implants

Dental implants can be a life-changing experience, as well as a great way to maintain oral health.

Advantages

Dental implants are an excellent choice for replacing lost and broken teeth. Here are the advantages of dental implants:

  • Functions the same as your natural teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without pain and discomfort.
  • Improves speech.
  • Prevents shifting of nearby teeth, preserving the contour of the jawbone and face.
  • Lasts years with proper care and maintenance.
  • Prevents bone loss beneath the missing teeth (if an implant is not placed after a year of losing your tooth, the bone area loses 25% of its volume).

Maintenance

Caring for your dental implants is just as vital as caring for your natural teeth. No special treatment is required, but proper care and maintenance are necessary to maintain optimal oral health. Additionally, regular checkups and cleanings are necessary to keep implants in the same condition as the rest of your teeth.

The Process Takes Time

The process of getting an implant can require more than one appointment. If the natural tooth needs to be pulled first, it’s recommended to let the area heal before putting in the implant. A checkup is required after the healing process to ensure that the area is properly healed and that the jawbone has the adequate density for the implant. Depending on how much work is required, the process can take up to six months. Much of that time is dedicated to the healing process and the strengthening of the jawbone.

Had my first visit to Dr. Mullaney’s office this month since the pandemic and the experience was gold standard. The safety processes and clean office environment were impeccable. Dr. Mullaney and staff were, as usual, amazing. Every step was explained, the protective garments worn by staff were the best I have experienced. It was a safe and positive visit and I recommend making an appointment!!

I am a new patient. After my first dentist appointment with Dr. Mullaney, I left feeling very informed and in control of ultimately making decisions about the care and treatment I receive. The staff is incredibly kind and knowledgeable. I love that they participate in helping veterans through The Freedom Day USA program. They are committed to providing a very clean and friendly atmosphere. In addition this practice goes out of its way to bring comfort and the latest in dentistry to all their patients.

I never thought that a person could enjoy going to the dentist until I started seeing Dr. Mullaney. Her attractive and serene office and Dr. Mullaney and her competent and friendly staff make every visit a pleasure. They have a gift for making each experience smooth and efficient, with meticulous attention to the patient’s needs and comfort. On a scale of 1 to 10 this practice is a 15!
