In conclusion, at ToothHQ, your first visit includes ample time to answer all your questions and suggest the best-suited dental treatment so you can move further without any concerns.
Many procedures take just a few hours, are scheduled in the morning, and completed by the afternoon. You will be sedated for the entire procedure and, post-surgery, will be shifted to recover in the comfort of a private room. Once you wake up, you will be fitted with a temporary arch and allowed to go home by early evening. Post-surgery there are chances you may experience minor pain that can be usually treated with over-the-counter medications. Finally, most patients can expect to resume normal activities the very next day.
Unlike other dental implant centers in Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area, ToothHQ offers follow-up care. Our dental specialists recommend patients visit the center every six months for a routine follow-up to have their dental implants thoroughly cleaned and properly examined.
To take care of your dental implants at home, brush and floss your teeth as you normally do. This helps keep your implants free of debris, stains, and plaque. While implants are made of durable materials, they can wear down over time if you do not keep them clean.
Whether you have replaced all your natural teeth or not, we still want to see you regularly. Routine dental checkups not only ensure that everything is fine with your dental implants but also can offer good, professional teeth cleaning for them.
The tools used to clean your teeth are designed so that they can easily clean the implant, abutment, and crown without causing any harm. An important thing that you need to keep in mind is that these tools do not scratch the crown's surface or abutment.
Yes, depending on your condition, we can do the same day tooth extraction. We can discuss your options when you are in touch with our office to make the free consultation appointment.
No, it does not. It is a myth, few people believe emergency tooth removal affects the brain.
Depending on the condition, most people need routine dental checkups and exams every 3 to 6 months.
Dental implants can be replaced if they fail. As dental specialists, we do implants carefully enough so you can have these implants for a lifetime.
The gum disease around the implants heals after any implant surgical procedure in about a week or two.
Dry sockets happen within the first 24 to 48 hours after an extraction procedure for the bottom teeth. If you have gone past the 24 to 48 hour mark, more than likely, you’re not going to have a dry socket.
All-on-4 implants can fail. It depends on how well you take care of the implants to have them lifelong in your body. Ask dental specialists to do implants carefully enough so you can have these implants for a lifetime.
Most wisdom teeth procedures can be done with limited pain or no pain. We’ll provide careful prescriptions and the recovery instructions after the wisdom teeth extraction procedure.
You can start eating solid food as soon as you are capable. Usually, you should be able to at least chew on some soft food 24 to 48 hours after tooth extraction. Even though you can eat solid food right away, we recommend you stay away from chewing anything hard to allow for faster recovery and avoid pain.
Wisdom teeth can be removed without extensive surgical procedure if they have already come through into your mouth or what we refer to as fully erupted.
We normally recommend bone grafting after any tooth extraction, other than wisdom tooth extraction, to allow bone stability to replace those teeth we are extracting with dental implants at a later time.
If you have sufficient bone on a missing tooth, it is possible you can get a dental implant without a bone graft.
Gum grafting procedures can last as little as 30 minutes as long as 3 to 4 hours, depending on the number of teeth involved in the gum grafting procedure.
Yes, you can definitely work after the gum grafting procedure. Most people return to work either the next day or the day after the gum grafting procedure.
It is a myth most people think that wisdom tooth extraction is major surgery. In our office, we do extractions under local anesthesia without having any major surgery, and these procedures sometimes take as little as five to 10 minutes.
Most dental implants last for a lifetime as long as you take good care of them and maintain them with regular dental visits.
Yes. All-on-four dental implants or any other dental implants will always look natural. We always tell our patients one of the major advantages of getting dental implants, including all-on-four dental implants, is that they look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Yes. All-on-four dental implants will prevent bone loss because they put your bone into function; therefore, your bone stands as a functioning structure to stay with you for a lifetime.
If you have continued pain, soreness, fever, and swelling, it is possibly a sign of your tooth infection spreading. In addition, there are several other ways the infection could spread, and you may not even know it. Even as a dentist, it is difficult to look at you and say whether you have an infection or not unless we do some special x-rays. If there’s any indication that your infection is spreading we strongly recommend that you visit your emergency dentist.
