What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants consist of an artificial tooth root that supports a prosthetic tooth. Unlike dental bridges and dentures, dental implants are considered a permanent tooth replacement. They are inserted into your jawbone, and during the healing process, the implant and jaw bone will fuse. Dental implants look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.
A single-tooth implant, or implant crown, replaces one missing or damaged tooth in your smile. Once the implant has healed, we will place a customized dental crown made to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.
If you are missing a full arch of teeth, all-on-4 dentures can help restore your smile. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures provide a permanent tooth replacement solution that don’t shift or fall out.
Dental Implant Procedure
During your initial consultation, the dentist will provide you with a personalized treatment plan to meet your mouth’s specific needs and help you achieve the results you have in mind. After your treatment plan is developed, you’ll come back to have your implant placed.
- First, the dentist will ensure that the area where the implant will go is completely numb.
- Then, the implant will be inserted under your gum line and into your jawbone. While your mouth is healing, you will have a temporary dental bridge placed in the space where the dental crown will eventually go. This process takes around 6-12 weeks.
- After your gums thoroughly heal and the implant fuses with the bone, an abutment is attached to the implant.
- Finally, the restoration will be attached to the abutment.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
By practicing good oral health habits at home, it’s common for dental implants to last a lifetime. To ensure your restorations stay in great condition, be sure to:
- Brush your teeth twice a day
- Floss daily
- Visit the dentist twice a year for checkups and cleanings
