Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a state-of-the-art tool for replacing missing teeth. They’re artificial tooth roots your dentist embeds in your jawbone, where they create a foundation for a restoration, like a crown, bridge, or dentures.

When your dentist fits your dental implant with a restoration, it closely resembles the structure of a natural tooth, providing a tooth replacement that looks and feels just like the real thing.

Why would I need dental implants?

If you’re looking for a modern solution for replacing your missing tooth, then dental implants are for you. There are many reasons why you might be missing teeth, including:

  • Aging
  • Tooth decay
  • Oral infection
  • Physical trauma or injury to your mouth
  • Congenital abnormalities

By offering a tooth replacement that looks and feels natural, dental implants can improve the look and health of your smile.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants have many benefits, including:

  • Similar look and feel of your natural teeth
  • Improved confidence
  • Customizable to your dental needs
  • Enhanced appearance of your smile
  • Healthier bite
  • High success rate
  • Permanent, long-lasting results

Dental implants also have a strong advantage over other restorative options (like bridges and dentures) in that they connect directly to your jawbone. This not only makes them more stable in your mouth and eliminates the need to reduce enamel from any of your adjacent teeth, but it provides healthy stimulation for your jawbone. This prevents your bone tissue from deteriorating.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

To get dental implants, you need to have healthy gums and sufficient bone tissue in your jaw. If you’re experiencing gum disease, your dentist will need to treat it before you can consider getting dental implants successfully. If you don’t have enough bone tissue in your jaw, your dentist or oral surgeon can perform a bone graft to augment your jawbone and create more substance on which the implants can anchor.
