What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone to act as a foundation for a replacement tooth or teeth. Made from biocompatible materials, such as titanium or zirconia, implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. They also provide stability and can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
Ideal Candidate for Dental Implant Procedure
Anyone who is missing a tooth or multiple teeth due to injury, periodontal disease, or tooth decay can benefit from implant placement. The ideal candidate for this surgical procedure should have good oral health overall and sufficient jawbone density to ensure that the implant will stay in place. If you don’t have enough bone density, there are techniques that can be used to build it up prior to the procedure.
The best way to determine if implants are right for you is to schedule a consultation with our experienced team. During your appointment, we will discuss your health history, evaluate your oral health, and recommend the best implant solution for you. We can also discuss the risks and benefits of implantation to help you make an informed decision.
Benefits of Dental Implants
1. Look and Feel Like Natural Teeth
Implants provide a natural look and feel that is unmatched by traditional methods of tooth replacement. Unlike traditional dentures, which can slip and slide around in your mouth, tooth implants are permanently anchored into the jawbone for a secure fit. The prosthetic teeth are made from materials that closely resemble the color and texture of your healthy tooth, so you can have a smile you’re proud to show off.
2. Prevent Bone Loss
3. Improved Oral Health
Because implants are permanently anchored into the jawbone, they create a strong foundation for your replacement teeth that helps prevent misalignment and drifting of adjacent teeth. They also make it easier to clean your mouth thoroughly as you can access the area around and behind the implant with a toothbrush or floss.
Steps Involved in Getting Tooth Implants
Step 1. Initial Consultation
Step 2. Implant Surgery
Step 3. Abutment Placement
Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, the abutment is placed. The abutment is a small connector piece that secures the new tooth to the implant post. Our dental team will make a small incision in your gums and then carefully place the abutment and secure it in place.
Step 4 . Placing the Artificial Tooth
