DENTAL IMPLANTS FAQ

Dental-Implant300x204

What are dental Implants?

A dental implant is a “root” device, usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth.”

The implant acts as a post that fuses to your own bone and then attaches to an artificial tooth or teeth. Dental implants have been used successfully for many years. Dental implants involve two phases:

  1. Surgical placement of the implant
  2. Placement of the post and crown on the implant.

What are dental implants used for?

There are three basic uses for Dental Implants:

  1. As an artificial root for a single tooth replacement.
  2. As anchors for a fixed or removable prosthesis to replace multiple teeth.
  3. As anchors for a full bridge or full denture to replace all of your teeth instead of a regular removable denture

What are the benefits of dental implants?

With the exception of your natural teeth, nothing looks more natural than an implant. Dental implants are so natural looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth. Dental Implants are:

Esthetic

  • Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth
  • Dental implants prevent bone and gum tissue loss that can happen with regular bridges
  • Dental implants are the most advanced tooth replacement system available today
  • Dental implants preserve the jawbone, which can prevent premature aging and that “sunken-in” look

Tooth Saving

  • Dental implants don’t require cutting down good teeth so a bridge, crown or cap can be placed on them
  • Dental implants never develop decay
  • Dental implants never require root canals
  • Successful dental implants provide as strong a bite as a natural healthy tooth

Reliable

  • More than nine out of ten implants last longer than 15 years
  • Implants will allow you to eat the food you desire without having to worry about wobbles or clicks and using glues or adhesives
  • There is no age limit to those who can receive dental implants, in fact we have successfully placed dental implants in patients ranging in age from 18 yrs – 90 yrs!
  • Research has shown similar success rates regardless of age

Veneers are very thin custom layers of porcelain that are sealed to the front teeth for the purpose of improving their shape and color. Results and improvement are often very dramatic, all from this very conservative treatment. The best part is barely any of the natural tooth enamel needs to be removed, sometimes none is removed at all. Learn more about Veneers here.
