Dental Implants Q & A

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants, for many patients, are the next best thing to having natural teeth. When you lose your teeth due to tooth decay, a disease, or a traumatic injury, your self-esteem and smile can take a hit. Dental implants help you bite, chew, and smile with confidence. They're sturdy, stable teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

A dental implant is a titanium post that's surgically anchored to your jawbone, beneath the gum line. This screw-like post is like the root of your new tooth. Once the post has been installed and your mouth has fully healed, a process that generally takes a few weeks, the dentist will mount a custom-made crown (replacement tooth) onto the metal post. The implants fuse to your jawbone, which makes them incredibly steady and secure.

These metal posts also work to help dentures, crowns, and bridges stay solidly fastened to your jaw.

Why are dental implants so popular?

On top of feeling, functioning, and looking like natural teeth, dental implants offer the following ten advantages:

  • Can last a lifetime with good care
  • Are a cost-effective way to replace missing teeth
  • Help retain your natural face shape and smile
  • Ensure the health of your jawbone
  • Help keep your surrounding natural teeth healthy
  • Allow you to speak comfortably and naturally
  • Don’t slip out of your mouth
  • Are strong and durable for chewing foods you love
  • Aren't wide open to cavities with an implanted crown
  • Deliver reliable, state-of-the-art results for tooth replacement

 

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

If you're missing teeth, you may be an excellent dental implant candidate. Your jaw must be finished growing, and your gums must be healthy. Dental implants are an excellent solution for adults, not children.

You may also be a good candidate for implants if you're tired of having dentures that won't stay in place, or if you're ready to replace a bridge or partial dentures. Men or women looking for a more permanent, long-term solution to dental work may be good candidates for implants. Wondering if dental implants are right for you? Meet with your dentist to ask questions and learn more about your options.
