What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the leading dental restoration to replace missing teeth. Dental implants provide oral health benefits that are far superior to other dental restorations, such as dentures or dental bridges. This is due to dental implants replacing a natural tooth in its entirety, including the crucial tooth root.

Dental implants are composed of a biocompatible implanted post (screw), and an artificial tooth (crown). The implanted post replaces the missing tooth root, fusing with the jawbone and tissues through a process called osseointegration. This remarkable process ensures that the implant is securely fused to the jawbone, promoting the growth of new bone and tissue. Once the fusing process has been completed, the post is affixed with a dental crown that looks, feels, and functions just like a normal tooth.

Dental implants are the longest-lasting restoration for missing teeth. With excellent oral hygiene, including regular dental appointments, dental implants will last at least 25 years, but potentially a lifetime. They are available to replace a single missing tooth, multiple consecutive missing teeth, and entire arches of teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

Why are dental implants better than a dental bridge?
Dental implants are the only dental restoration that preserves the jawbone. Without a tooth root, the jawbone begins to recede. Because the implant mimics the tooth root, dental implants preserve the jawbone and subsequently preserve your facial appearance. Moreover, dental implants are permanent restorations. Your dental bridge will need to be replaced periodically.
How long does the process of getting dental implants take?
The process can take months to complete. Following your implant surgery at our practice, adequate time must be allowed for the implant to fully fuse with the jawbone. For some types of dental implants, this process may only take a couple of months. But for most people, the fusion process takes 4-6 months.
Are dental implants safe?
Yes. Dental implants, when placed by an experienced Implantologist are incredibly safe. It is advisable that you only receive dental implants from a specialist, as they will have significant experience, along with all of the technological advancements to ensure placement accuracy.
How do you take care of dental implants?
You will care for dental implants as you care for natural teeth. You do not need any special brushes or tools. You should brush your teeth twice daily for a full two minutes. You should floss or use a water flosser daily. You should continue to see your dentist every six months for oral examinations and professional cleanings.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
No. The procedure is painless due to the anesthesia used for your procedure. After your surgery to place the dental implants, it is normal to experience tenderness and swelling
