The Details

What are dental Implants?

Dental implants are man-made substitutions for the root structure of natural teeth.

Unlike traditional bridges or dentures, (that sit directly on top of the gum) dentists place implants directly into the jawbone.

Dental implants can be used to enhance or restore a patient’s smile. They replace missing teeth and provide a fixed solution.

Wells Family Dental Group implants are the best choice to restore or enhance your smile because they look, fit, feel, and function like your natural teeth. They also help to ensure a healthy mouth for years to come.

The Facts About Dental Implants

When most people think about implants, they think that they are for aesthetics and not for health reasons. If you neglect your teeth, it can cause gum disease and other infections that can lead to heart conditions, among other things.
When you are fitted with dental implants, they are shaped and colored/shaded to match your real teeth so no one would be able to tell the difference.
Dental implants are a fixed part of your mouth so there is no need to worry about them moving or falling out.

What to expect

Dental Implant Process

An initial surgery to create molds of the bone, gum tissue, and teeth spacing (and, if necessary, placing “posts” to hold the artificial teeth).

After some rest time, the artificial teeth are fitted in one or two sessions.

Following one more rest period, the artificial teeth are permanently installed.

Once the dental implant treatment is finished, we will give further instructions to properly care for your implant.

From start to finish, Dr. Woll will walk you through the process and make sure you are comfortable and understand your options.

I rarely leave reviews but my dental experience at Wells Family Dental Group was worth it!  I saw Dr. Woll. It’s apparent he likes what he does, he explained things clearly and really took his time speaking with me.  His passion for teeth made me feel comfortable and I left with more knowledge and understanding than I thought possible.

This practice is fantastic!!!  From the moment I got to the office I felt comfortable and at home.  The front office staff were friendly and efficient.  Dr. Woll was so kind and did a great job explaining my treatment needs.  Overall wonderful experience and can’t wait for my next visit!

Implant-supported single tooth

When a patient needs one or more teeth replaced, single implants are the best option for longevity when it comes to your health and maximum stability.

Implant-supported bridges

Patients who need multiple teeth replaced might be best suited with a bridge that prevents significant shifting.

Implant-supported dentures

If a patient needs an entirely new row of upper and/or lower teeth, an implant-supported denture is the most secure denture solution.

How long does it take to get dental implants?

It all depends on the individual case and how many teeth are missing and/or need replacing. The implant process could take anywhere from a few days to a few months. Your doctor will discuss the exact timing of everything with you when you come in for your consultation.

Does it hurt to get dental implants?

You will be anesthetized during the whole surgery and you won’t be able to feel a thing! Most patients have little to no pain afterwards, but if it does become a problem there are different options to manage it that you doctor will discuss with you.

What is the recovery time for dental implants?

There’s no set recovery time for all implant patients since each patient’s unique oral condition will affect the surgery. The following could affect your recovery time:

• The number of teeth you have extracted and implanted (single, multiple or whole jaw)

• If your bone is healthy enough for the implants to adhere to

• If your procedure requires bone grafting

• Individual differences and healing time

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants that are properly placed and well-cared for can last for upwards of 25 years. Today’s advanced technology and our doctors’ experience allow us to give you the best chance at your dental implants lasting for life!

Will my dental implants look natural?

Yes! We shade match your implants to ensure that they are the same color as the rest of your teeth so they blend in and no one would be able to know the difference. We also take impressions to be able to make sure that the implants are the correct size and shape for your mouth, which is important for maintaining your bite.

Will my dental implants hold up/are they strong?

Dental implants are just as strong as natural enamel. Plus, because they aren’t susceptible to decay, you won’t ever have to worry about cavities. It’s important to remember that an important factor in the longevity of implants is care. Smoking and poor dental hygiene are two of the biggest causes of implant failure.
