Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a small, biocompatible post your dentist places directly in your jawbone with a minor surgical procedure. Because your body doesn’t recognize biocompatible materials as foreign objects, your dental implant fuses with your jawbone and creates a strong support system for a restoration, like a crown, bridge, or removable dentures.

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are one of the most advanced pieces of technology in modern dentistry. By replacing your missing tooth root, dental implants effectively mimic the structure and function of your natural tooth, giving you a fully restored smile that looks and feels very natural.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants can benefit your smile in a number of ways, including:

  • Improved ability to eat and speak
  • Keep your teeth in proper alignment
  • Restore the appearance of your smile
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Evenly distribute the force in your bite
  • High success rate and long-lasting

Your mouth functions best when it has all of its components to work with, and replacing your teeth with dental implants enables your smile to operate at its full capacity.

What makes dental implants unique?

As a newer dental technology, dental implants have a few advantages, making them stand out against more traditional restorations. 

Unlike a bridge, which uses crowns to replace your missing tooth, a dental implant can restore your smile without having to reduce enamel from any of your healthy, natural teeth.

And unlike both bridges and traditional dentures, the artificial tooth in your dental implant connects directly to your jawbone. This not only makes for a more stable and comfortable restoration but also provides your jawbone with healthy stimulation, effectively preventing the bone loss that’s often seen in patients with dentures and bridges.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Because they mimic the structure of a natural tooth, your dental implants don’t require any sort of special care or maintenance. If you brush twice a day, floss daily, and maintain regular cleanings and exams with your dentist, your dental implants may last a lifetime.
