About Dental Implants
For a long-term and attractive substitute for lost teeth, advanced dental procedures at DentalWorks - Southern Park Boardman in Boardman, OH by our dentists use dental implants to build and reestablish a complete, fully-functioning mouth. Dental implants surgically put titanium posts in the jaw to simulate the missing root, so false teeth can be connected for a reliable fit that does not need food restrictions or adhesives. The false teeth will be dyed and shaped by our dentists to fit in with the patient's teeth for a natural look. For patients who are need to replace a single tooth or several teeth, dental implants at DentalWorks - Southern Park Boardman can be a wonderful, long-term choice.
"I am just thrilled with the dental care I received from Dentalworks! I came in for a routine cleaning and the Hygentist did a wonderful and thorough job. She went over and above by probing a little to see if I had any issues (which I did but didn't think could be fixed) I had a root canal done 10 years ago and it had been bothering me all this time.. she set up the Dentist, with all the possibilities, and discovered that it need to be adjusted. A very slight adjustment has made all the difference to me!! Other dentists' over the years brushed it off as "phantom" pain because there was no root in the tooth. Dentalworks, and especially the Hygentist, really went the extra mile to help me with my Very Long, on-going discomfort. Thank you! God Bless!!"- C.M. / Google / Feb 12, 2018

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is started, a full exam will be performed by our dentists to determine the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the individual is an acceptable candidate for dental implants, oral X-rays and impressions will assist our dentists to decide the ideal location for the dental implants in the jaw. The individual may be put under sedation and local anesthesia to relax the patient while our dentists put the titanium post into the jaw. In the next 3 - 6 months, the jawbone and implant will grow together while the bone heals and as soon as the dental implant is stable, the false tooth or teeth can be joined to the dental implant through a connector. Our dentists may alter the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and lasting fit.
Typical patients experience little or no discomfort following their dental implant procedure, however a few patients may experience short-term discomfort and tenderness that may be treated using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To extend the use of dental implants, patients should start a good home dental care regimen that includes daily brushing, flossing, and anything recommended by the dentist. Consistent appointments at DentalWorks - Southern Park Boardman in Boardman, OH for dental cleanings and exams are also vital to caring for implants. Dental implants may last for a long time with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are judged to be medically required, the patient's dental insurance policy will typically pay for some of the dental bill. Although, elective dental implants are typically generally not paid by insurance plans. At the patient's dental consultation, the office employees of DentalWorks - Southern Park Boardman can call about their insurance coverage and review payment methods and financing available through our office.
