Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option whether you're missing one or multiple teeth. Regain your confidence and enjoy a permanent, natural-looking smile that functions just like your natural teeth.

Dental Implants in La Vista, NE

Dental implants replace missing teeth and help maintain bone levels, preventing bone loss and providing better functionality.

Dental implants have three components:

  1. Implant—a screw that is gently placed under your gums.
  2. Abutment—the piece that connects the implant to the crown.
  3. Crown—the artificial replacement tooth.

Whether you’re looking to replace just one tooth, several teeth, or even to secure dentures more firmly, dental implants can be tailored to your needs.

At Nebraska Dental Center, we use state-of-the-art technology, including 3-D X-rays and imaging, digital scanners, and fully guided surgery for optimal implant placement. We also provide our patients with nitrous oxide and oral sedation to make them as comfortable as possible. We discuss what options make sense for our patients during either a limited or full exam, depending on the patient’s needs. Our specialty is single implants. If you are interested in a single implant, schedule a consultation with us today.

Dental Implant Process

  1. Dr. Fischman will consult with you and visually examine the site in the mouth where the dental implant is being considered.
  2. Next, Dr. Fischman will need to consider if there are any current teeth that need to be extracted and which type of bone graft needs to be conducted. These procedures will take place first and you will be allowed a few months to heal to ensure an adequate and strong bone is present at the site of the implant.
  3. Once this is determined, the dental implant is placed into the bone using a surgical guide and a healing cap is placed over the implant so the healing phase can begin. This is followed by regular check-ups to ensure proper healing and that there is no infection around the place of surgery.

Many patients wonder how long the dental implant process takes because there are many steps to the process. From the day that the implant goes in and until there is a tooth there, the timeframe can range anywhere from 3 to 6 months. This process depends on how well you heal and if there are any concerns about healing time. The surgery itself usually takes under an hour, with much of that time going over pre and post-op instructions, taking post-op radiographs, and answering any questions that you may have.

  • How long does an implant last?

    A dental implant can last you your whole life if it's well taken care of! It's a long-term option to replace a tooth and by far the best option in most cases.

  • Does a dental implant hurt?

    We will numb you before the surgery so that you don't feel anything. Most of our patients say that they have minimal pain and are very comfortable during post-op recovery. They're all surprised on how little discomfort they have!

  • Can it break down or get a cavity?

    An implant cannot get a cavity! You still need to brush, floss, and attend regular hygiene appointments to keep it clean. Just like your natural teeth, plaque and bacteria can build up around it and cause inflammation and damage your gums and bones.

Dental Implant Aftercare

Taking care of your dental implant is crucial for ensuring it lasts long-term. Nebraska Dental Center will provide you with a printed post-care sheet detailing provided prescription mouth rinse, antibiotics, and pain medication if needed to help you heal quickly and comfortably.

We will also discuss eating habits for the first few days after surgery, how to brush and floss the area and in what cases a patient should call us. Often, we discuss wearing an occlusal guard after your implant is placed. Occlusal guards are removable appliances that fit over your upper and lower teeth to protect them and minimize potential damage.
