Tips for Your Orland Dental Implants

Dental implants are becoming one of the most popular and efficient methods in treating patients with missing teeth. And although you can visit the official website of the top provider of Orland dental implants for more information on the process, today we have decided to provide some “insider tips” for our dental implant patients to review so that their treatments are even more successful.


The most important factor to keep in mind when it comes to dental implant treatment is that it is going to take them time to be finalized.


The typical time frame for a successful placement can be around 6 months, but can extend to 12 months or longer if certain factors come into play. If the jaw or tissue is deemed to be too fragile, some pre-implant surgery may be required to strengthen the site. Allowing this to heal can take around 6 months, then another 6 months or so for the official implant.


By taking the time to allow the implant to acclimate to the natural tissue of the jaw, you are setting it up for success. If any step along the way is rushed, it can raise the possible percentage of failure greatly.


Overall if you do not rush yourself or your dentist in either the placement of the implant, healing or the placement of the crown(s), you can see on average a 90%+ chance of success.


Other factors that can negatively impact the process include smoking, excessive drinking, poor diet and/or a poor at-home brushing regimen. While these habits can typically be bad for your health, if engaging in them regularly in the midst of implant treatment- the results can be detrimental.


By understanding that the process takes time, being patient, and keeping up with behaviors that would normally keep your oral health excellent anyway- your Orland dental implants will give you the best looking and feeling solution to tooth loss available.
