Dental Cleaning Q & A

Evan Cohen DDS, PC

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a popular choice to replace missing or broken teeth. A prosthetic tooth is affixed to a titanium post placed in your jaw bone.

Dr. Cohen uses Zimmer Biomet® Implants, a highly advanced brand that restores your smile with maximum functionality and a completely natural look. Zimmer Implants are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants have surged in popularity because they offer numerous advantages over your other options, like bridges and dentures. The reasons men and women choose implants include:

  • No threat of decay
  • Natural look and feel
  • Prevents jaw bone atrophy
  • Restores function
  • Supports facial structure

What can I expect during a dental implant procedure?

After making you completely comfortable with a blend of local anesthesia and nitrous oxide, Dr. Cohen or periodontist Michael Chau, DDS, places a titanium post into your jaw in the space where you want a new, permanent tooth. Your custom tooth is permanently affixed to the post.

Depending on your specific needs and Dr. Cohen’s evaluation of your oral health after an exam and X-rays, it's possible to receive your implants in a single visit. At your consultation, Dr. Cohen writes up a treatment plan, so you know what to expect.

Are dental implants right for me?

If you’re missing one or more teeth and want a permanent solution, dental implants might be right for you. A good candidate has thorough oral hygiene habits and no gum disease.

Using innovative technology to evaluate your oral health and the strength of your jawbone, Dr. Cohen performs a comprehensive evaluation to determine your candidacy for dental implants.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants have a high success rate and can last a lifetime. Dr. Cohen checks your implants two weeks post-op, and again three months later to ensure you heal properly.

In addition to regular brushing and flossing, follow these directions to protect your dental implants:

  • Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings
  • Don’t smoke
  • Reduce intake of sugar and fast-burning carbs
