What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants consist of three components: an implant post, an abutment, and a crown. Dental implants are a popular restoration option because they are the only dental restoration that replaces the entire tooth from root to crown. This is important because the post, which serves as the artificial tooth root, continues to stimulate the jaw, which prevents bone loss and helps to preserve your facial muscles and appearance.
When you visit our implant dentist, we will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if dental implants are right for you. Our office performs the placement procedure as well as setting the restoration, whether that be a crown, bridge, or dentures. If your jawbone is thin or brittle, our friendly dentist offers bone grafts and sinus lifts to increase the density of your jaw so you can receive your dental implant.
We use modern technology, such as a CBCT scanner and computer-guided surgery, to ensure precision placement and that your restoration fits your bite, blending seamlessly with your smile.
Our team understands that you might hesitate to receive a dental implant due to the cost. However, your oral health and quality of life matter to us, so we offer CareCredit® to help you enjoy the treatments you need without feeling the strain on your finances.
Do I Need Dental Implants?
If you are missing one or more teeth, then it's time to talk to our dentist about dental implants. When you are missing teeth, there are several complications that set in below the gum line that eventually lead to more complicated issues. The space left behind means that the tooth root is not stimulating your jaw, and without stimulation, bone loss occurs where your tooth used to be. Bone loss leads to alterations in your facial structure and appearance. The gap that your tooth once occupied also compromises the integrity of your bite, causing uneven wear, and eventually, your remaining teeth will shift, creating more complications.
A dental implant can prevent these issues because the titanium post replaces the entirety of your tooth, from root to crown. The restoration is tailored to fit snugly into the space your natural tooth once occupied, maintaining the optimal spacing of your teeth and repairing your bite and smile.
Dental Implant FAQs
We understand that you will have many questions regarding your procedure, and we encourage you to ask them and share your concerns. Our team is happy to provide the answers and information you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants:
If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Our team will perform a detailed assessment to determine if dental implants are right for you.
Dental implants are relatively easy to care for. You will simply brush and floss your restoration twice daily, just like your natural teeth. While implants are durable, it's important that you do not use them improperly, like opening cans or bottles.
When you follow our dentist's instructions and care for your dental implants properly, the implant post can last a lifetime, while the restoration can last between 10-15 years.
Yes. Our team is proud to offer All-on-4. This innovative procedure anchors a full arch of teeth on just four implant posts. If you are interested in All-on-4, we will thoroughly examine your oral health to determine if you qualify for this procedure.
No. The titanium post fuses permanently with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. However, the visible part of your restoration (the crown, bridge, or denture) may be replaced if it's damaged.
