How Dental Implants Work
Many people have heard of dental implants but aren’t sure how they work. We can tell you they are truly remarkable! They have been used successfully for decades to replace one tooth, several teeth, or most of a smile.
When most people think about a dental implant, they picture the artificial tooth (crown, bridge, or denture) that takes the place of the missing tooth. But a dental implant is actually a very small titanium post that is surgically placed directly into the jawbone.
Over time, the implant bonds fully to natural bone and tissue. This forms a stable foundation for the dental restoration that we will attach to it. When the process is finished, the dental implant looks and works just like a natural tooth.
In some cases, however, we may find that there isn’t enough bone in your jaw to hold the implant firmly in place. If this is the case, we can talk to you about bone graft surgery. This is a procedure where our oral surgeon builds up the bone in your jaw, creating a secure foundation for the implant.
Restore Your Quality of Life
Getting a dental implant doesn’t just fix the cosmetic problem that results when you’re missing a tooth. Implants actually help maintain your best oral health.
Because the titanium post becomes part of your jawbone, it keeps surrounding natural teeth from shifting and becoming unstable. The implant also provides support for the jawbone, preventing deterioration, which commonly results when a tooth is lost.
A dental implant can change your life. When you have a fully functioning tooth, you can eat, drink, and speak with ease. Implants are comfortable, durable, and improve the appearance of your smile. If you’re a denture wearer, we can talk to you about holding your dentures in place with dental implants. Imagine not having to worry about your dentures moving out of place at the most embarrassing times!
