simple answers to questions from patients like you, who have opted for dental implants with prostheses.

Here is this list of 12 common questions about dental implants to enlighten you on the subject. Do not forget that the
denturologist Isabelle Gaudette remains at your service for any question about the placement of your dental implants.
But most importantly, keep in mind that you can benefit from his free evaluation. This meeting allows you to know the
types of dental implants with prostheses that best meet your condition, your taste and your budget.

1- What is a dental implant?
The dental implant is an artificial root, usually made of strong titanium, which is inserted firmly into the jawbone. It
acts as the root of a natural tooth and can support the dental prosthesis or tooth attached thereto.

2- Who is responsible for the placement of dental implants?
Only a dental surgeon specializing in the placement of dental implants ensures the installation. Denturologist Isabelle
Gaudette works with a few dentists and, if necessary, she can recommend competent professionals.

3- Is the pose painful?
The placement of dental implants is done with local anesthesia, to prevent patients from feeling pain. A mild sedative
may also be given if necessary. Thereafter, it is possible that the placement of dental implants creates a slight
discomfort, since the gums remain swollen for some time. We recommend that our patients take a painkiller.

4- Do dental implants give the impression of having real teeth?
Dental implants give the impression of having real teeth ... but with a few more. You benefit from a renewed dentition,
very esthetic and solid, which allows you to eat all that you wish, with an incomparable comfort and durable .

5- How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants, well placed and well maintained, can last a lifetime. They are made of resistant metal, very well
tolerated by the body, and are implanted firmly in the jawbone.

6- Is it possible to have a dental implant for missing teeth and to keep other natural teeth that are healthy?
Yes, it is quite possible to get the benefits of dental implants when you only have one or a few teeth to replace. A
unitary tooth is then installed on a dental implant. No modification to neighboring natural teeth is necessary, unlike
traditional bridges or partials. This is also one of the great advantages of this advanced technique to replace one or a
few teeth .

7- What are the dental implants made of?
Dental implants are made of strong titanium and are firmly placed in the jawbone. Titanium is a high quality metal known
to be well tolerated by the human body, including bone. Over time, the bone is formed around the implant again. It is
said that the dental implant is osteo-integrated, that is to say integrated into the bone .

8- How many meetings take place before the intervention?
In general, one meeting is enough before the intervention .

The first free evaluation meeting with your denturologist makes it possible to develop a treatment plan according to the
condition of your mouth, your choices and your budget. Subsequently, a meeting with the dentist, who also validates the
treatment plan, provides the intervention.

In some cases, the dentist must perform a bone graft. He can then perform the bone graft and put the dental implants on
the same occasion, or wait a few months before placing the implants.

9- How does the intervention work?(تجميل الاسنان في الاردن)
The procedure is performed by a dental surgeon specializing in the placement of dental implants. After learning about
your personalized treatment plan, he proceeds to a local anesthesia, then to the intervention. It lasts about an hour.

If you feel the need, a mild sedative may be given.

Follow-up is done afterwards to ensure that everything heals properly.

10- How to maintain dental implants?
Dental implants require a little maintenance to ensure their longevity. Thus, depending on the type of dental prosthesis
installed, maintenance can be easy or a little more demanding. To help you, your denturologist explains how to properly
maintain your dental implants and offers you an annual visit to verify that everything is in perfect condition.

11- Can I eat normally after implant placement?
Following the placement of your dental implants, a transition period should be considered. Thus, it is recommended to
consume liquid foods during the first two weeks: soups, soups, smooties, grits, yogurt, etc. By the third week, you can
complete your menu with pasta, fish, eggs, finely chopped foods and cereals.

In the second month, slightly firmer foods can be added: tender meats cut into pieces, cooked vegetables. Finally, after
three months, your mouth will be ready to savor everything that makes you want!

12- After how long can I install dental prostheses?
In fact, as soon as the dental implants are placed, it is possible to wear so-called transitional prostheses. Or, to
benefit from a temporary modification to the dental prosthesis that you had before. So there is not really a period when
you live without teeth. You are able to smile, resume your activities and feed yourself properly, taking into account,
however, a process of progressive food integration.

After about three to five months, your denturologist installs your new dentures on the implants, when the healing of
your gums is completed. https://goo.gl/maps/JetWWXueDKF2/
