Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are tiny posts made of metal or porcelain. Dr. Civelek surgically places them into your jawbone to anchor crowns, bridges, or dentures that fill in gaps left by missing permanent teeth. Dental implants are strong, durable, and long-lasting.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

The many benefits you can expect by choosing dental implants with Dr. Civelek at Holistic Periodontics include:

  • No more gaps
  • Stops teeth from shifting
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Flattering smile
  • Self-confidence

Dr. Civelek has many years of experience placing dental implants. He’s completed more than 100,000 dental implant procedures throughout the years.

Are dental implants right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants at Holistic Periodontics, Dr. Civelek reviews your oral health history, examines your teeth and gums, and uses 3D scanning technology to develop an in-depth picture of your jawbone. He then personalizes a cosmetic dental plan that matches your needs.

What happens when getting dental implants?

You’ll need bone grafting before undergoing dental implant placement if you don’t have enough jawbone to support the implants.

Before you receive dental implants, Dr. Civelek numbs the treatment area and offers you a sedative to make you feel more relaxed. He makes tiny incisions in your gums and inserts the dental implants into your jawbone.

As you heal, your jawbone regenerates and fuses to the implants. Dr. Civelek attaches connector posts to each implant. He uses digital scanning technology to create custom-fitted artificial teeth (called crowns) that attach to the implants. He ensures that they fit correctly and bonds your new teeth securely in place.

How can I take good care of my dental implants?

Take proper care of your implants by adopting exceptional at-home oral hygiene habits. Brush your teeth after meals, floss every day, and see your dentist for routine dental cleanings and exams every six months. Don’t chew on hard candy, ice, or other hard objects.
