What are dental implants and what can they do for me?
A dental implant is an artificial root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. After placement, the implant fuses to the bone of your jaw and acts as an artificial tooth root. Replacement teeth, singularly or grouped on a bridge or denture, are then mounted to the implant(s).
What are the advantages of dental implants?
- Esthetics: Dental implants look, feel, and function like your own teeth.
- Tooth-saving: If your adjacent teeth are in good condition, it won't be necessary to modify them to make a permanent bridge.
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in the jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissue free of periodontal disease. Some chronic diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis, or chronic sinus problems may interfere with proper healing and could prevent the bone from attaching to the implant. Long-term medication use and certain behaviors like smoking also may affect the stability of the implant over time.
What can I expect after treatment?
Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque free, brushing and flossing still apply.
What are implants made of?
The implant itself is made of metal, usually titanium, which has proven to be very compatible with bone and other tissues. Like conventional crowns and bridges, the replacement teeth mounted on the implants are made of porcelain or porcelain and metal.
What else should I know about implants?
As with any medical or dental procedure, implant placement is not always successful. Complications related to healing factors could influence long-term retention of the implant.
Placing the implant and allowing the bone to fuse with the implant will take some time. The entire procedure can take place over a few months and usually involves more than one surgical appointment. Placement and adjustment of the artificial teeth also may require more than one appointment.
