Dental implants are small, titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. These posts integrate with your jawbone, creating a strong foundation for a crown or denture.

Each implant is placed to permanently replace one tooth. Implants can also be used to support bridges and partial or full dentures.

What types of dental restorations can dental implants be used for?

Dental implants can be used to replace single missing teeth or multiple missing teeth. They are also used to support dental bridges that are fixed in place. Dental bridges can be used to replace multiple missing teeth in a row.

Dental implants can also be used to anchor dentures. This offers superior stability when compared to traditional dentures. The dentures are attached to small connectors that are attached to the implant posts.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants don’t rely on surrounding teeth for support. Instead, dental implants are anchored to your jawbone just like your natural teeth. The benefits offered by dental implants include the following:

  • Long-term tooth replacement solution

Dental implants are one of the most durable and long-lasting tooth replacement solutions. They can last for 25 years or more with proper oral care.

  • Keeps jawbone healthy

Dental implants can also prevent jawbone deterioration. When you lose a tooth, your jawbone no longer has the strong stimulation it needs to stay strong. Dental implants provide this stimulation, helping to keep your jawbone healthy.

  • Prevents the shifting of adjacent teeth

When a tooth is lost, it can lead to the shifting of adjacent teeth. These teeth can then cause gaps to develop, decreasing the aesthetic appeal of your smile. Dental implants, however, act as artificial tooth roots that integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep your remaining teeth in place.

  • Restore chewing function

Dental implants restore chewing function by attaching to the jawbone and replacing the missing root. The teeth attached to the implants act and function like natural teeth.

  • Improved speech quality

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. Unlike traditional removable dentures, which rest on top of the gums, dental implants are anchored into the jawbone. They allow patients to speak and eat with confidence.

  • Enhanced appearance

Dental implants offer the most natural-looking option. They’ll blend in seamlessly with surrounding teeth, so no one will be able to tell that you have an artificial tooth.

  • Bone preservation

As your jawbone atrophies, it shrinks and changes shape. Dental implants replace tooth roots, which are the main part of the jawbone responsible for adding support and structure. When teeth are missing, the jawbone slowly becomes weaker. Dental implants help preserve the jawbone and prevent it from deteriorating.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are an excellent option if you have good jawbone health, and overall health, and are willing to commit yourself to the treatment. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants is to schedule a consultation appointment with your dentist. During your consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and health history to determine if dental implants are the right option for you.
