What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants give you the power to replace missing or heavily damaged teeth. With a dental implant, you can fill in a gap in your smile and restore your ability to smile normally, as well as bite and chew. You’ll be able to feel more confident and comfortable — plus dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care!

The Implant Process

Getting dental implants takes time. The process typically lasts at least six months (although most of that is downtime). However, the results can be spectacular and make a major difference in your quality of life.

Depending on the health of your jawbone, you may need a bone graft before we can begin the implant process. This is to help build up your jaw enough that we can successfully place the implants.

Once your jaw is ready to go, your dentist will gently insert the slender titanium screws or posts into the bone. These mimic the roots of your natural teeth, and are what we’re talking about when we say “dental implants”.

You’ll need several months for your jaw to fully integrate with the newly placed implants. Over time, they’ll essentially become part of the bone, making them secure enough to hold your replacement teeth. Don’t worry — you won’t feel discomfort during the healing process.

Once your implants are fully integrated with your jaw, your dentist will place titanium abutments on top. These provide an additional foundation for the crowns that will come next.

Finally, your dentist will top your implants with sturdy porcelain crowns. These look just like your real teeth, and will allow you to smile, bite, and chew again!

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the most effective, attractive option for replacing missing teeth. Implants have a great deal of flexibility — you can get a single implant to replace one tooth, or enough to support a full arch of missing teeth. Implants can also be combined with dentures to provide a more affordable option that improves upon the performance of stand-alone dentures.
