The dental team at Avon Dental Care can help you determine if you are a candidate for implant dentistry in Avon, Ohio. In your initial exam and consultation with Dr. Thomas R. Hughes or Dr. Troy Steinhilber, you’ll learn more about dental implants and decide if they are right for you.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that work by replacing both the root and the crown of your tooth (or multiple teeth). Robust and aesthetically pleasing, they help restore the integrity of your jaw and your confidence in your smile.
Implants consist of two main parts. The first part, the implant post, replaces the tooth root and extends into the jaw to provide a stable foundation. The second part, the implant restoration, replaces the crown of the tooth or teeth and consists of a single crown, a dental bridge, or a denture.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants are a popular choice for replacing missing teeth. They are one of the most significant advancements in dentistry in the last few decades. Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth.
Patients are drawn to dental implants because they are durable, maintain bone structure, and feel and look like natural teeth. They’re a great way to restore your confidence island your smile.
What can you expect during dental implant treatment?
There are two phases in a dental implant procedure: 1) the implant placement and 2) the implant restoration. We allot time between each step to allow your jaw to heal and your dentists to design and create a restoration that meets your unique needs.

After your procedure, you should care for your dental implants just like your natural teeth. Regular care includes daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular visits to your dentist for preventive care.
Who can get a dental implant?
Anyone who has lost a tooth or teeth is a candidate for implant dentistry.
As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you will likely be able to receive implants without any difficulty. However, if you have a pre-existing condition, such as tooth decay or gum disease, you will need to receive treatment for that condition before receiving an implant.
