Why Choose Straumann® PURE Ceramic implants?
If you need to replace one tooth or multiple teeth, our Doctors at Southern Minnesota Implant Center invite you to schedule a free consultation at our facility. Dr. Flack and Dr. Schuck are experts in placing Straumann® PURE Ceramic implants and have been offering this treatment to our patients for a very long time! Some of the many highlights Ceramic Dental Implants can provide include:
- Highly Esthetic
- Metal Free
- Seamless color from post to crown
What Should I Expect?
After your initial consultation and examination, Dr. Flack or Dr. Shuck will then place the post of the implant into your jawbone. A temporary crown will be placed that will allow you to eat and function as normal for a few months. Over the course of the next several months, the post will integrate itself into the jawbone more permanently and when you come back to our office for a follow up appointment, your doctor will place a permanent crown that is designed to be installed for life.
Follow Up Care and Recovery
Most patients can return to work and their normal daily activities 24-48 hours after their procedure, although each treatment can be different so please be sure to ask our staff if you have any particular activities that may be strenuous or out of the ordinary. Normal recovery periods after a dental implant is placed can range between a few days to a few weeks depending on the type of procedure you have endured. The more implants that have been placed, the longer it will take for you to fully recover. To help with the healing process, we always recommend getting as much rest as possible and eating soft food for a few days. Medication will be prescribed to you, and you should always follow the doctor's instructions post-surgery.
