That sounds like an easy question to answer but it isn’t. Your smile is unique, and we won’t compromise your individuality with smile enhancements. Smile design dentistry done right requires an initial consultation in which we will discuss your goals, preferences and options for care.

After your comprehensive evaluation and consultation, we’ll present a smile makeover plan for your new smile.

Dental Implant FAQ
This will be a question that you will discuss with the oral surgeon. Many times when a tooth has been missing for some time in the mouth the bone recedes and has to be replaced prior to the implant being placed.
The entire process of getting a dental implant can take up to 18 months, depending on the surgical site, your need for bone grafting, and the complexities of your case. Dr. Kevin and Wendy Brafman work closely with the oral surgeon during the entire time you are in treatment.
Dental implants are made of titanium, so they are able to permanently bond with the jawbone through a process called osteointegration. This fusion is so effective that it allows dental implants to function like natural teeth in all chewing, biting, and dietary capacities.
During the surgery, you will be properly anesthetized at all times or you will be asleep so you will not feel a thing. And after surgery, you’ll be relieved to know that most of our patients experience very little pain. The surgeon will help you manage any discomfort with over-the-counter pain medications. We would be happy to discuss any necessary prescriptions during your visit.
Dental implants are made of titanium. An implant is comprised of three parts: the implant itself (a titanium screw that is placed in the jawbone), the abutment (a connector between the implant and the crown), and the crown (the part that is visible and looks like the tooth). Drs. Kevin and Wendy Brafman partner with renowned oral surgeons around the Dagsboro area who place the implant and the healing cap before we skillfully complete the entire process with the final crown.
Studies have shown that properly placed and well-cared for dental implants can last for a long time. Our cutting edge technology and extensive experience enable us to give you the very best shot at keeping yours for life!
