What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts specially designed to replace the root of a tooth in preparation for a dental restoration.

Dental implants are intended for use in either the upper or lower jaw to support dental restorations, such as crowns. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to avoid having removable partial or complete dentures.

What are the typical reasons for getting dental implants?
  • Restore a patient’s smile and confidence.
  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into space created by missing teeth.
  • Restore proper chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues and shape.
  • Support a crown, bridge, denture or All On Four, making them more secure and comfortable.
What does the process of getting Dental Implants involve?

The process of getting dental implants requires a number of visits over several months. X-rays, impressions (molds) and CT Scans are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. A surgical guide is developed to insure accurate placement of your dental implant.

Often a bone CT scan is performed prior to the dental implant placement.

While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone for few months.

After healing, the artificial teeth are precisely manufactured and anchored to the post (dental implant). Custom-made hardware components (custom abutments) are secured on the dental implant to anchor your designed tooth restoration.

How long will Dental Implants last?

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years. However, like teeth and other dental restorations, they require regular follow up and maintenance.
