How do Dental Implants work?
Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are permanent restorations. They are surgically placed in your jaw to anchor one or more artificial teeth. Implants are made from biocompatible titanium or titanium alloys that fuse to your jawbone and strengthen the surrounding tissue. This can prevent or reverse the bone loss that results following the loss or extraction of a tooth. Dental implants are the only tooth loss solution that can help preserve your jawbone.
Once placed in your jaw, the implant acts as an artificial tooth root. The implant is compromised of two parts: a screw-like post that is inserted in your jaw and a connector, or abutment, that holds the artificial tooth. We cap the abutment with a dental crown. Our crowns are made from porcelain for a durable and completely natural-looking restoration.
Your dental implant will replace the healthy look and feel of your missing tooth, resuming its normal function. With dental implants, you can smile, chew, and speak with confidence.
Who is a candidate for Dental Implants?
To receive a dental implant, patients must be in good overall oral and physical health. Patients must also have enough healthy jawbone tissue to support an implant and gums free of periodontitis (gum disease). If you suffer from gum disease or extensive jawbone loss, we will recommend treatment before moving forward with the implant procedure.
Be sure to schedule a consultation with our dental team. A member of our will perform a thorough examination to help you determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.
