Out goes the bad tooth.

In goes the good implant.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a man-made replacement for a missing tooth. It's usually made of titanium, and is roughly like the root of a tooth. Dental implants come in various sizes and shapes, but they are about the size of a small bullet except with threads, and they are gently and painlessly screwed into the bone. They are allowed to heal undisturbed, while the bone heals around them, locking them in to the jaw like an anchor. After a few months, the implants are used to hold a crown or cap in the mouth. Once integrated in the bone, and once the crown is attached to it, they function just like normal teeth. There is no pain before, during or after.

Implants can also be used to anchor a bridge, or a partial denture, or a full denture. The denture can be screwed in or snapped in place, depending on the needs of the patient.

Dental implants restore lost chewing ability, can stabilize the other teeth in the mouth, vastly improve appearance, and boost self-confidence. Dental implants are a reliable, incredibly strong, comfortable and natural-looking solution to consider when it comes to replacing missing teeth.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Placement of dental implants is a minor surgical procedure performed in one or two office visits. If you have one-stage implants, the posts will extend through the gums while your tissues heal, and you will not need a second surgery. If you have two-stage implants, they will be placed under the gums while the bone heals. You will need a second, simple surgery to uncover them and attach a post to support your replacement teeth. After the implants are placed, the bone attaches to them and permanently anchors them within your jaw. In the meantime, %doctorname% can adjust your full denture or partial prosthesis for temporary use.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants have dramatically changed the lives of many for the better, helping them overcome the detrimental, and often devastating, effects of disease, poor function and unattractive smiles. When evaluating whether or not you would be candidate for dental implants, several things are considered, including:

  • Your medical history: Discuss all medications and existing medical conditions with your dentist beforehand. Generally, if you are healthy enough to have typical dental work done, you can undergo the dental implant procedure.
  • Bone loss: If you have a good amount of bone remaining, dental implants may still be successful. If there is not enough bone to support the implants, bone-grafting procedures may be required before a dental implant can be placed.
  • Periodontal issues: Moderate to severe periodontal disease may require treatment prior to dental implant placement. Dental implants cannot be placed when gum disease is present.
  • Smoking or tobacco use: If you're a smoker or tobacco user, this can affect the success of the implant as well as your overall dental health.
