Dental implants are recommended by many dentists as an excellent tooth replacement option due to their durability, dependability and versatile applications. Regardless of the number of teeth that need replacing, dental implants can offer a durable and attractive repair. Each of these implants is made up of two elements, the first of which is an implant post: a titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jawbone where the lost tooth or teeth were once located. This screw serves as a stand-in for the tooth’s root, making sure that your restoration is kept securely in place. Usually, a healing period is needed after the screw has been inserted to allow the bone to meld with the screw.

Our dentist can attach the dental implant restoration to the post after this healing time is over. The visible part of your missing tooth or teeth is replaced with this restoration, which also caps the implant to complete your smile. Depending on your needs and the condition of your smile, the restoration may consist of a dental bridge, dental crown, complete or partial denture, or a combination of these. The restoration is designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth and improve your smile’s appearance and functionality.

With appropriate maintenance efforts, similar to caring for your own natural teeth, your dental implant has the potential to last a lifetime, making them a fantastic investment for patients whose missing teeth are getting in the way of their oral function or appearance.

Dental Implant FAQ

Does It hurt to get dental implants?

With the amount of local anesthetic  that is administered during the implant placement surgery, you should not feel any pain during the procedure. In fact, most patients are able to return to work the very next day. However, you may feel a bit sore afterward, but this discomfort should only last a few days. In the meantime, you can take prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication as needed. It may also help to hold a cold compress to your cheek in ten-minute intervals.

Am I too young or too old for dental implants?

In most cases, dental implants are not recommended for children because their facial muscles and bones have not quite finished developing. For this reason, most dentists will wait to place implants until a patient is at least 18 years old. On the bright side, there is no upper age limit for dental implants. Even patients in their nineties have used them to rebuild their smiles!

How do I make my dental implants last?

Dental implants are actually surprisingly easy to maintain. For the most part, simply care for them as you would care for your natural pearly whites. Brushing and flossing every day, attending dental checkups and cleanings on a regular basis, and wearing a mouthguard when participating in sports can all prolong the lifespan of your implants.

Are dental implants safe?

Dental implants have been used for half a century to replace missing teeth. They are made from incredibly safe and biocompatible materials. When placed properly by our dentist, they should not cause any health problems.

What is a dental implant, and how does it work?

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root. It provides a stable foundation for a replacement tooth, known as a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Over time, the implant fuses with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, creating a strong and durable support for the prosthetic tooth.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Generally, individuals with good overall health, adequate jawbone density, and healthy gums are candidates for dental implants. A thorough examination and evaluation by a dentist or oral surgeon are necessary to determine if someone is a suitable candidate.

How long does the dental implant process take?

The dental implant process can take several months and involves multiple stages. After the initial implant placement, there is a healing period during which osseointegration occurs. Once the implant has integrated with the jawbone, impressions are taken for the custom-made prosthetic. The final restoration is then attached. The overall timeline can vary but may range from a few months to a year or more.

How do I care for dental implants, and do they require special maintenance?

Dental implants require regular oral hygiene practices similar to natural teeth. This includes brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. While implants cannot decay, the surrounding gums and supporting bone must be kept healthy to ensure the long-term success of the implant. The dentist or dental hygienist may provide specific instructions for caring for the implants based
on individual needs.
