Dental Implant FAQs

Dr. Jose Gil provides dental implants to patients in his Allentown, PA dental office. Dental implants are a versatile dental restoration that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Because implants restore teeth at the root, they can provide stability if patients require permanent dental bridges or dentures. Patients with a single missing tooth or all of their teeth missing can receive dental implants at Hamilton Dental Designs.

Dental Implant FAQs

Our patients have these common questions about dental implants and implant restorations:

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Dr. Gil and his staff will help determine if you are an ideal candidate for implant treatment. Ideal implant candidates have healthy gums and enough bone in their jaw that can support the implant post. Patients may also undergo periodontal therapy or bone grafting services so they can receive dental implants or an implant-secured bridge or denture.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Tooth implants provide several advantages to patients with missing teeth. Dental implants help improve the function and balance of the bite by creating a stable tooth surface. Single implants and implant-supported restorations are capped off with porcelain crowns so they look and feel natural. Many patients may forget that they have prosthetic teeth. When secured with implants, dental restorations can last for many years.

How do I care for dental implants?

Once you receive your dental implants, avoid eating chewy, sticky, or hard foods. These types of foods can cause irritation and even get stuck in the incision site. Once you recover from implant surgery, you may continue a normal diet. Implants can be cleaned just like natural teeth, with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Remember to make regular dental appointments so we can make sure that your implants are working properly.
