Got questions about dental implants in Madera?

Now is probably a good time to talk to Dr. Ahmed Elsayed of Madera Family Dental Care in Madera, CA. Dr. Elsayed can answer your questions and allay any concerns you may have about dental implants and whether they are right for you.

Here’s what you need to know about dental implants to get you started:

First, Dr, Elsayed will probably tell you if you're the right candidate for dental implants.

Next, is the actual procedure. Your dentist drills a hole directly into your jawbone and places the implant directly into the bone tissue. The bone tissue then regrows around the implant, making a safe, strong and natural anchor for the implant – in other words, the implant becomes part of your jawbone. Once the tissue around the implant heals, Dr. Elsayed places a prosthetic tooth – a crown – onto the implant post, resulting in a replacement tooth that feels, looks and works like one of your natural teeth.

You can have one or several implants done, depending on your needs.

Complication rates are minimal and according to the American Dental Association, the success rate for implants is more than 95 percent.

Dental implants are not for everyone. If you have advanced gum disease or poor oral health, a Madera dentist such as Dr. Elsayed is going to want to correct that prior to attempting an implant procedure. People also need to understand that the procedure takes some time – in some cases several months – and more than one trip to Dr. Elsayed’s office. That’s because it takes time for the bone tissue in your jaw to heal and anchor the implant; the amount of time varies from patient to patient.

If you have questions about dental implants or are seeking the services of a qualified, caring dentist in Madera, CA, consider making an appointment with Dr. Elsayed. For more information, call Madera Family Dental Care at (559) 661-4114.
