What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. These are generally titanium replacements of tooth roots, and allow for affixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth to be placed that are made to match your natural teeth.

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel, and function like natural teeth. A person who has lost or damaged teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

If you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, you will generally undergo an examination and health history analysis. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by a qualified doctor. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.

One of the most important parts of the value of dental implants as compared to dentures or other procedures, is their permanence. Dental implants are permanently fixed in place and never need to be removed; in fact, with good care, they can last a lifetime. This is a significant difference from the 10 year lifespan of a typical partial or the frequency with which dentures are damaged or lost when removed. And, because each implant is placed individually, if something does happen, you do not have to replace all of them, just the one tooth.

Dental Implant FAQs

How long do dental implants last?

With regular brushing and flossing, the implant screw itself can last a lifetime, assuming the patient receives regular dental check-ups every 6 months. The crown, however, usually only lasts about 10 to 15 years before it may need a replacement due to wear and tear.

Does having my dentures fixed to dental implants really make a difference?

Yes. Dentures is like building a house with no foundations. Implants are the foundation that help to keep your teeth stable.

How do I choose between having a bridge and dental implant?

assuming that the teeth on each side of the gap are healthy and that you have enough bone then an implant is best, on the other hand if the teeth on the sides of the gap are heavily filled and they need crowns and you don’t have enough bone then a bridge in better in this case.

What are the advantages of dental implants over dentures or a dental bridge?

Implants are a fixed treatment that works like natural teeth unlike dentures which removable sit on the gum and you can’t bite very hard with them. Dental bridges are fixed but you are relying on the teeth on either side of the gap to carry the forces, long term issues could be bone loss under the missing tooth and unlike implants if a bridge fails then you are dealing with a problem that involves many teeth.
