Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a prosthesis that artificially replaces a lost or missing tooth, or that is used to hold a denture in place.  There are three main parts:

  • The implant itself, a post made from titanium that is placed into the jaw bone to simulate a tooth root.
  • An abutment (connector), also made from titanium, which is placed on top of the implant above the bone
  • A Crown, usually made from high-grade ceramic built around the abutment to mimic the look and feel of a natural tooth.

Why do I need  a Dental Implant?

Have a tooth or teeth that you have already lost, or are you aware that a tooth needs to be removed? The impact of a lost tooth can be devastating. 

Having an incomplete smile or having missing teeth can have a tremendous impact on our daily lives.  Our teeth aid us in eating, speaking and smiling with ease. Previously, the only options we had available were Dentures and Bridges*.  Neither option actually replace teeth in a way that feels natural and may involve other issues such as:

  • additional tooth loss,
  • pain, and
  • deterioration of the bones that define the structure of your face.

Implants, whether you receive one, several and an entire arch of implants, the results will let you eat, smile and speak naturally, all the while maintaining your self-esteem.

 

*If a denture or bridge is truly the best solution for a client, then we will discuss the most conservative way to install the denture or bridge.

Dental Implant Procedure:

Am I suitable for dental implants?

Most people are good candidates for dental implants. These candidates have:

    • Healthy gums
    • Enough bone to support and anchor the implant and
    • Are old enough that your jaw has stopped growing

People who are may be at risk of poor outcomes after implantation are those that have uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, have had radiation to jaws, smoke, alcoholism, or uncontrolled gum disease.

Why not dentures?

For some people, dentures may be the right choice, but not for all. There are many advantages that dental implants have over dentures. For example:

  • Dental implants look more realistic than dentures
  • Dental implants can be better for your oral health
  • They don't need to be removed throughout the day
  • They typically last much longer than dentures
  • Feel more confident
