All You Need To Know Dental Implants

Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. The dental implant is placed into the jawbone and functions as the support structure for a crown or bridge restoration. Dental implants are the ideal tooth replacement option because they look, feel, and function like natural teeth! This is because an implant creates a stable and secure base for your new crown or bridge restoration. 

Plus, the implant helps to prevent bone loss in your jaw by stimulating the natural bone cells to regenerate. This helps to prevent the sunken appearance you often see in people who have lost teeth. Your new dental implant will look and feel natural, making it nearly impossible for anyone to tell that you have a replacement tooth!

How Long Does a Dental Implant Procedure Take?

Most dental implants require three trips to the dentist’s office to complete the process, but your dentist may make additional visits based on your specific needs. Your first appointment will consist of a consultation and examination to see if you qualify for an implant. If you do, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth or gums. This impression will be used to create a replacement tooth that will be surgically placed into your jawbone during your next visit. Once the implant has healed, you’ll come back to the office to have the abutment attached to the implant. The abutment is a small piece of metal that attaches to the implant and holds the crown in place. Finally, you’ll have your final appointment so your doctor can attach your new crown to the abutment. The entire process can take several months to complete; however, once the procedure is complete, you can rest assured that your implant will look and feel just like your own natural tooth!

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

Every implant is custom designed to match the size and shape of your natural teeth and mouth. 

Dental implants are a proven long-term tooth replacement option that can last for decades when properly cared for. The success rate for implants is over 95%, one of the highest success rates of any medical procedure. If well maintained, your dental implants can last a lifetime.

Dental implants are permanent and are the closest you can get to healthy teeth! 

Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants won’t slip or click when you talk or chew. You’ll speak, smile, and eat with comfort and confidence.
