What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in areas of missing teeth. The dental implant provides a secure structure to support a porcelain crown or bridge. The result is a natural looking option to complete your smile and improve your function.

Benefits of Dental Implants

With dental implants, patients can eat what they want, when they want and never have to worry about embarrassing mishaps or the pain of ill-fitting dentures. Unlike a denture, the dental implant does not affect the taste of food. Dental implants are fused to the jaw bone which prevents further bone loss and provides a secure, reliable fit. Dental implants function more like a natural tooth and are able to withstand forces that other treatment options may not. Dental implants do not affect the surrounding teeth so are a wonderful alternative when the missing space is between healthy, untouched teeth.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Good overall health is an important factor in the successful placement of dental implants. As well, adequate bone structure in the jaw and good dental health are essential. Your dentist will do a thorough evaluation to determine if dental implants are a good option for you.

Dental Implant Procedure

The first step in placing an implant is to surgically place the supporting posts in the jaw below the gum line. Then the implant is given the opportunity to heal over a period of months. This ensures that the posts are secure and able to provide long term stability. The next step is an impression of your mouth to ensure proper alignment of the new crown. Lastly, the crown is secured to the post at the gum line to provide a natural look.
