What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an innovative solution to replace missing teeth. They are designed to mimic a tooth's natural structure and function, providing a stable foundation for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants have a titanium post that we surgically place into the jawbone, acting as an artificial tooth root. This post integrates with the surrounding bone, creating a strong and durable anchor for the replacement tooth.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are suitable for many individuals who have lost teeth to injury, decay, or other dental conditions. Our skilled dentists will assess your oral health and check if you are a candidate for

Generally, good candidates have healthy gums and sufficient jawbone density to support the implant. If you currently wear dentures or have a bridge, dental implants may also be an option to improve stability and comfort.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Choosing dental implants offers numerous benefits for both your oral health and overall well-being. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, implants provide a long-lasting and natural-looking solution.

Some advantages of dental implants include:

  • Improved chewing and speaking abilities
  • Enhanced aesthetics
  • Preservation of facial structure
  • Increased self-confidence

How Does Dental Implant Surgery Work?

Our team will begin by assessing your oral health and creating a personalized treatment plan. We usually perform the surgery under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. After we place the implant, a healing period is necessary for osseointegration, a process in which the implant fuses with the jawbone.

Once the implant has fully integrated, we will attach a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture, creating a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. With practices like regular brushing, flossing, and check-ups, your implants can last a lifetime. Avoiding habits like smoking and teeth grinding will also help ensure their longevity.
