Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots available in different shapes and sizes. These titanium implants replace your natural tooth roots and stabilize dentures or other dental prostheses, such as dental crowns. With dental implants, your dentures or other dental prostheses can remain securely in place.

Your dentist carefully fuses your dental implants to your jawbone in an in-office procedure. Your dentist places your dentures on top of your implants to replace a single tooth, multiple missing teeth, or even an entire set of missing teeth.

What does the dental implant procedure involve?

During your procedure, your dentist administers anesthesia. Next, your dentist makes an incision in your gums and drills small holes into your jawbone. 

Your dentist places the titanium implants in the holes and closes your gums with sutures to allow your new implants time to successfully fuse with your jaw. 

Following the surgical placement of your implant is the fusion process of your jawbone and dental implants (osseointegration). This usually takes 3-6 months.

Once your jawbone has completely healed, your dentist secures a supporting element called an abutment onto the top of each dental implant.

Your dentist attaches then your custom prosthesis, such as crowns or dentures, to the abutments and ensures you’re completely satisfied with the results and your new smile.

Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?

Suitable candidates for dental implants have a fully grown jawbone and healthy oral tissues. You should also be in good overall health and free from any health conditions that might interfere with bone healing.

Dental implants are an excellent idea if you haven’t had much success with your regular dentures.

Your dentist might suggest dental implants to improve your speech or eating or as a solution if your regular dentures keep falling out.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental implants offer a range of benefits:

  • Replacing your natural tooth roots
  • Securing your dentures or other dental prostheses
  • Protecting your jawbone
  • Providing long-lasting results
  • Preventing future bone loss
  • Enhancing your dental health

Dental implants improve the look of your smile, your speech, and allow you to eat a normal diet.

Most importantly, missing teeth can cause bone loss over time, which can change the shape of your face. To protect your face shape and achieve a dazzling smile that you won’t be afraid to show, call Downtown Dental Studio or use the online scheduler.
