What are dental implants?

Dental implants are basically permanent tooth replacement that can function the same as an actual tooth.

Dental Implants are especially beneficial for many reasons. Instead of a restoration that simply sits on top of the gum line, an implant actually replaces the tooth’s root for a secure, permanent replacement option.

Advantages of a dental implant:

  • Looks and functions like a natural tooth
  • Doesn’t rely on adjacent teeth for support
  • No slipping
  • Improved chewing and speaking ability
  • No extra maintenance
  • Permanent tooth replacement

Implants are a longer-term solution compared to a dental plate. Dental plates can lose their shape and stability and require replacing every 5-10 years. Implants however sit in place and don’t lose their shape or strength and can last from 10-30 years.

How is an implant inserted?

This is a straightforward procedure where the dentist inserts a tiny dental screw into the jawbone where the missing teeth used to be. Once the bone and gum has healed, you insert the crowned tooth that matches the shape and shade of the existing teeth.

After-care requirements include regular active maintenance visits for continuous care of the implant and existing teeth.

Dental implants can be used as a single tooth Implant or to anchor dentures, depending on the needs and goals of the patient. If you would like more information about implants and how they can improve your oral function please contact us today .
