What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. Titanium is used because of its unique ability to fuse with bone, resulting in a prosthetic tooth that is just as strong as a natural tooth is. This gives patients a better quality of life than they would experience with dentures and bridges, and it also helps to preserve the health of the jawbone and, therefore, facial aesthetic qualities.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the best method for replacing missing teeth because they:

  • They can last a lifetime
  • Do not slip or fall out as dentures and bridges do
  • Have no eating restrictions
  • Look the most natural

Bone Loss from Dentures

Dentures are a very useful tool for dentists as they are a quick solution to missing teeth, however, they do nothing to stimulate the jawbone, which results in its immediate deterioration. Over time, the receding jawbone becomes more and more severe, negatively affecting a person’s health and self-esteem as the face takes on a sunken look. By contrast, dental implants provide the same stimulation that natural teeth do, preserving the jawbone for life.

Dental Implants Procedure

The full dental implant procedure is comprised of three main stages: First, for those with bone loss, we build up the bone with a grafting procedure. After several months, once the bone has been replenished, we are then able to insert the dental implant into the jawbone. And, following that, we craft and attach a strong, natural-looking crown with a connecting piece known as an “abutment”.
