Your Guide to Dental Implants

You have probably heard of dental implants due to their increasing popularity, and you may even know someone who has had the operation done. Dr. Bashar and his staff take great pride in providing this service to patients in Edina, Minnesota because it can significantly improve a patient's health and happiness. We advise you to educate yourself on the procedure and the advantages of implants before consulting a dentist about them so you can make an informed choice.


Although many people still use and prefer dentures, dental implants have emerged as the best alternative for tooth replacement because of how natural-looking they are. Your body can function just as it would if your original teeth were still there, thanks to the technology utilized in dental implants. 

A tooth that is missing or damaged can be fixed with dental implants. On top of that, since implants are made to last permanently, you do not need to maintain or replace them on a regular basis.


Your mouth and jaw needs to be healthy to accept the implants and for the operation to be successful. In certain circumstances, bone grafting is required to strengthen the region where the screw will contact the jawbone. While the majority of patients report success with this procedure, maintaining good oral and jaw health is essential to avoid implant rejection.
