Implants

What are dental implants and how do they work?

If you need to replace a missing tooth, a dental implant is an artificial anchor that acts like the root of your tooth and holds the replacement tooth in place. 

Dental implants look like screws and are made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with being in your body for a long period. Titanium dental implants are placed in your jawbone and bond with your natural bone to create a sturdy foundation that supports one or more artificial teeth, known as crowns. Your implant and crown are connected with an abutment, which is placed on top of the implant to support the crown and hold it in place. 

Dental implants are the strongest dental devices to support artificial teeth, and they provide an unsurpassed natural look and feel.


What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants are a comfortable and natural-looking treatment for missing teeth, and they don’t affect surrounding teeth or gum tissue in the way other treatments can. In fact, they actually help stimulate new bone growth. They can be used as a support for bridges and remove your need for removable partial dentures. Alternatively, they can also support your dentures and make them more secure in your mouth.

Dental implants are a practical alternative to dentures and bridges. Dentures often fall out of place and can result in unnatural facial features after wearing them for a short time. Bridges are semi-permanent and require constant upkeep and upgrades that can become more expensive in the long run.

Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, and they prevent bone loss and gum recession that are common side effects of dental bridges and dentures. They have a high success rate and are a great option if you need to replace a damaged or diseased tooth.


Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are a great option for anyone with generally good oral health. Since dental implants are attached and connected to your gum tissues and underlying jaw bone, your dentist at Concierge Dental Design first ensures that these are in good health. 

Before treatment starts, your dentist assesses the health of the bone in your jaw and ensures you have healthy gums free of periodontal disease. If you don’t have enough supporting bone structure, your dentist can discuss bone grafting procedures that can create a strong base you need for dental implants.
