Dental Implants: The Gold Standard in Tooth Replacement

If you're missing one tooth or several teeth, you may be a good candidate for dental implants considered the gold standard in tooth replacement. Not only do dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth, but they are also very stable and long-lasting.

Many people today are choosing dental implants over other tooth replacement options like partial or full dentures because implants require very little special care and offer many advantages over dentures. Dental implants never shift out of place or make clicking noises when chewing or speaking, nor do they require the use of any messy dental adhesives.

Dental Implant FAQ

When answering frequently asked questions about dental implants, the most important detail revolves around what a dental implant is. A dental implant is a small, screw-like post made of a biocompatible material like titanium that is surgically implanted into the jawbone where a natural tooth root once was. Once it’s put into place, the implant is given time to heal and integrate with the bone. Then an abutment is screwed into the implant so that a crown (tooth top) can be attached to the abutment to complete the procedure.

In addition to improving how your smile looks, dental implants can help preserve your facial structure by preventing bone deterioration that occurs with missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire upper or lower set of teeth.

Implant Supported Dentures

Dental implants can also be used to support dentures. The number of implants needed will be dependent upon the size of the denture. In most cases, an implant-supported denture is semi-permanent. This means that it can only be removed by a dental professional. Implant supported dentures provide many benefits when compared to traditional dentures. For one, they act and feel more like traditional teeth because they are anchored by dental implants.

Bone Grafting

Sufficient bone density is required for all patients having a dental implant placed. If your tooth has been missing for an extended period of time, you may be lacking in bone. When this happens, bone grafting is typically required. Bone grafting is the process of adding bone material into the affected area to prepare for dental implant placement.
