Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a lasting solution for those needing to replace one or more missing teeth. Not only do they look natural and function like real teeth, but they are also highly reliable and durable.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial root, surgically inserted into the jawbone, upon which a manufactured tooth, bridge, or denture can be anchored. This procedure is an ideal choice for replacing missing teeth since it does not require alteration of adjacent teeth. Not only does an implant enhance the patient’s appearance and restore their ability to chew and speak normally, but it also helps to preserve the jawbone by preventing bone loss.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants? Are dental implants safe?

    The dental implant process begins with a consultation and visual examination. If any current teeth need to be extracted, this procedure will be completed. After, the patient is typically given a few months to let the extraction site heal. Following this, the implant is placed in the bone, along with a healing cap, which initiates the healing process. Finally, regular check-ups are done to ensure the implant is healing properly and there is no infection at the site of surgery.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    Two of the most commonly used dental implants are endosteal implants and all-on-4 implants. Endosteal implants are the most common dental implant option. They are comprised of a titanium metal rod that is installed into the jawbone and a supporting post that is specifically designed to secure either a dental crown or a dental bridge.  All-on-4 implants are a revolutionary dental implant system in which an entire top or bottom denture is supported on just four implants. Each implant is strategically placed so that the replacement teeth remain steady and secure. The advantage of using four implants is that it helps promote faster patient recovery and reduces the likelihood of complications from possible implant failure.

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    When a person experiences tooth loss, they face numerous challenges, from difficulty chewing to speaking clearly, jawbone deterioration, facial structure loss, and bite imbalances. Dental implants offer a reliable solution for resolving the immediate issues, while also preventing the long-term problems associated with tooth loss. By providing an artificial root system, dental implants help to maintain order and keep the remaining teeth in place. Ultimately, dental implants are the most effective option for treating tooth loss.
