Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots embedded in your jawbone. They’re made from titanium or ceramic, both of which are biocompatible materials that fuse to your bone tissue as you heal from your surgery.

After you’ve fully healed and your implant has completely fused, it functions just like a natural tooth root and provides a strong and sturdy foundation for your dentist to attach a restoration. With dental implants, your dentist can attach crowns, bridges, or full dentures to replace your missing teeth.

Dental implants represent a great step forward in tooth replacement technology. By closely mimicking the structure of a natural tooth, dental implants give your restoration an unparalleled degree of comfort and stability.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants have many benefits for your oral health and quality of life, including:

  • Improved ability to eat, speak, and digest
  • Prevent your other teeth from shifting
  • Evenly distribute the force in your bite
  • Improved confidence
  • High success rate
  • Long-lasting

Dental implants also stimulate the bone tissue in your jaw, which helps prevent bone loss common with other tooth-replacement treatments, like traditional dentures and bridges.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

For your dentist to successfully perform the procedure required for dental implants, you need to have healthy gums. If you have gum disease, your dentist will need to treat it before you can get dental implants.

Dental implants also require you to have a full and healthy jawbone. Your implant uses your jawbone as an anchor, so if your jaw doesn’t have a substantial amount of bone tissue, the implant won’t hold properly. If your jawbone is lacking density, your dentist can perform a bone graft to augment the tissue and make you a more viable candidate for dental implants.

You also need to have sufficient space in your mouth for your dental implant. If your teeth are particularly crowded or crooked, your dentist might suggest getting orthodontic treatment to make more room for your implant.
