The Basics of Dental Implants

Are you in the market for dental implants? Proven safe and effective at replacing missing teeth, contemporary dental implants have been in use for more than 30 years. Improving the confidence of your smile while restoring the efficiency of eating and overall health, implants could be the best choice for you.

Here are three important questions to ask when considering dental implants:

What are they?

A dental implant is an artificial root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or various other reasons. Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.

Are they safe?

Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry when performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist. A dental implant is the strongest device available to support replacement teeth, and it allows your replacement teeth to feel, look and work naturally.

Why would you need them?

If you have lost or had any of your teeth fall out dental implants may be a fantastic long term option for you. A dental implant fuses to your jawbone and serves as the root of the missing tooth. Unlike fixed bridges, which may need to be replaced two and three times during a lifetime, implants are durable and rarely, if ever, need to be replaced.  The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
