All You Need to Know About Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically placed into the jawbone and used to support one or more false teeth. Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants are not removable. 

Dental implants are a great solution for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Dental implants are a safe, durable, and natural-looking way to replace missing teeth.

What are Dental Implants used for?

Dental implants are an excellent choice for replacing missing teeth. They are better than bridges, partials, and dentures because they can restore chewing function and appearance. They also help prevent adjacent teeth from shifting, which can create problems with bite function, while implants are firmly rooted within the jawbone.

What are the benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental Implants restore the appearance of your teeth, prevent bone deterioration, are long-lasting, and are cost-effective. They act as a natural tooth, allowing you to eat any foods you please; they do not affect your diet. Because implants are permanent and do not affect neighboring teeth, they prevent further complications.

Am I a candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire upper or lower arch. There are many factors that go into determining if dental implants are right for you. First, you must have enough bone in your jaw to support the posts of the implant. Your jaw must also be healthy and free of periodontal disease. Additionally, healthy gums are essential because they will surround and support the implant.

Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option for people who are missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of their teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because there are no adjacent teeth being altered. They are also better than dentures because they look and feel more like natural teeth.

How do Dental Implants work?

Dental implants are an effective, popular, and long-lasting tooth replacement option. They replace both the root and crown of a tooth, providing several benefits over traditional tooth replacement options like bridges and dentures.

Dental implants are secured to your jawbone, which naturally fuses with the implant over time. This helps provide the secure feeling of a natural tooth. They are also designed to last for a lifetime, so you won’t need to purchase new implants when one of your natural teeth needs to be replaced.

What happens during a dental implant procedure

To begin the procedure, the dentist will numb the treatment area. Next, they will create a tiny hole in the jawbone. This hole is where your implant will go. Once the implant is placed, the dentist will suture the gums. Once the gums heal, they will place a permanent crown on the implant.
