How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. Once the posts are securely placed, natural-looking tooth replacements are attached on top that work and feel just like real teeth. With proper care, dental implants can last for years, making them a cost-effective and long-lasting solution for missing teeth.

Best Candidates for Dental Implant Surgery

Beyond missing teeth, a healthy jawbone is the most important aspect of dental implant candidacy. Since the implant rods rely on the bone structure for support, a suitable amount of density is needed for a successful procedure.

Through detailed digital X-rays, we will thoroughly evaluate the health of your jawbone and determine if dental implants are the right option for you. If necessary, bone grafting is an option to restore bone density and provide the strength needed for a permanent tooth replacement with dental implants.

The Dental Implants Procedure

Your dental implant procedure begins with a comprehensive consultation where we work to understand your goals and oral health. Digital X-rays are a crucial step. With accurate imaging, we can assess your jaw health and plan the ideal placement for the implant rod. Next, we proceed with the careful placement of the titanium implant post. During this visit, the post is skillfully inserted directly into the jawbone. Patients are then allowed ample time for integration with the surrounding bone structure.

Upon completion of the healing period, we take precise impressions to create a personalized dental crown or bridge. The prosthetic is attached to the titanium post, checked for a secure and precise fit, and cemented into place. At the end, you’ll have incredibly natural-feeling and permanent restoration for a missing tooth or teeth

Why Opt for Implants Over Dentures or Bridges

Dental implants aren’t the only tooth replacement options, but they offer several unique advantages that have made them the gold-standard in restorative dentistry. Take a look at the outstanding advantages that set dental implants apart from dental bridges and dentures:

  • Enhanced Aesthetics: With an implant rod that mimics a tooth’s roots and natural-appearing crown, dental implants are often indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
  • Superior Durability: Unlike bridges and dentures which may need replacements, dental implants can last a lifetime, offering a permanent solution for missing teeth. This makes the upfront cost of dental implants worthwhile with less follow-up care down the line.
  • Improved Bone Health: Implant rods continually stimulate the jawbone. This prevents bone density loss and a change in face shape that can happen after tooth loss.
  • Restored Functionality: Our dental implants restore the ability to bite, chew, and speak just as you would with your natural teeth.
  • Preserved Oral Health: Unlike dental bridges, implants don’t rely on support from surrounding teeth. This means you can preserve your natural tooth structure, promoting better overall oral health.
