What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is basically an artificial tooth root. It is made from titanium and looks like a screw. It is implanted into the gum or jawbone then crowned with a customized enamel crown that looks like your natural teeth. The process can take approximately 6-9 months. The overall treatment time depends on if the dentist needs to treat your gum or perform bone grafting to increase jawbone height prior to placing the implant.
Are Implants Right for Me?
Almost anyone with damaged, loose, or missing teeth can get implants. Patients who generally make good candidates are those who:
- Have one or more missing, damaged, or loose teeth
- Feel embarrassed about missing teeth
- Want permanent tooth replacement
- Have enough jawbone height
- Want to prevent further tooth loss
- Do not have periodontal disease
- Are patient to undergo bone grafting
Why You Should Choose Implants
Dental implants are permanent when placed into the jawbone or gum. They do not shift or fall out like dentures or certain types of dental bridges. Other benefits are:
- They look and feel natural
- Function like your natural teeth
- Do not decay
- Improve your smile
- Can be cared for like your natural teeth
- May boost self-confidence
- Do not require replacing like some bridgework
