What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. One this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. Some offices have an onsite lab to create the crown, but others will have to send it to an outside lab. Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.

What Are The Benefits of Dental Implants?

We rely on our teeth far more than we realize. It is easy and very common for our patients to take their teeth for granted. We use them to speak, eat, chew and bite and not having them there causes us to put additional stress on the remaining teeth which in turn wears them out much faster than normal wear and tear would do. Missing teeth can also cause headaches and jaw pain. Because of these health reasons, it is best not to ignore missing teeth. They must be replaced as soon as the patient is able to do so. A dental implant is the most comfortable and permanent solution to replace missing teeth. The implant creates a strong foundation for the replacement teeth and keeps jaws bones healthy. In addition to looking completely natural, dental implants also offer a wide range of compelling benefits. Other tooth replacement options leave much to be desired in terms of comfort and functionality; they also do nothing to prevent the bone decay that always occurs when teeth are missing.

Unlike the alternatives, dental implants are independently supported, which helps to protect the strength of the dental arch. Dental implants also give patients a new sense of confidence due to the improved aesthetic look of their smile and not having to worry about their false teeth slipping out of place in an embarrassing setting. Research shows that tooth replacement options like dental implants can significantly improve the way we eat, allowing patients to add a more varied diet to their life, filled with crunchy fruits and vegetables. It’s generally understood that the aging process is accelerated but a decline in a healthy diet.

Because dental implants are also available in a wide range of styles and configurations, our team is able to customize tooth replacement options for each and every patient as required by their unique needs.
