What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are man-made “tooth roots” crafted of lightweight titanium, a strong and safe material. Dental implants are the newest and most permanent way to replace missing teeth. Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once in place, these “roots” can then can be used to attach new teeth, as well as bridges, removable partials or dentures.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.

How long do Dental Implants last?

Dental Implants are connected with the surrounding bone in your jaw. They have a long-term potential and can last a lifetime when properly taken care of.

Can anyone have Dental Implants?

Yes. In most cases, anyone healthy enough to under go routine dental extractions or oral surgery can be considered for an implant procedure. Patients suffering from uncontrolled chronic diseases, systemic problems or behaviors and heavy smokers may not be good candidates.

Is the procedure painful?

With modern anesthesia, you are unlikely to experience any pain during implant replacement. Afterwards, discomfort will be based on the extent of your procedure. Most patients tell us the benefits of their Dental Implants far outweigh any discomfort they experience.

We can also provide sedation dentistry during the procedure.

How long will it take?

The Dental Implant procedure itself is brief. It takes place in a single visit. This is followed by a healing period during which the bonding of the Dental Implant to the jawbone takes place. Typically, this requires from three to six months. Most patients use a temporary bridge during this period.

Is this an experimental treatment?

No. This treatment has been used for more than 35 years in Europe, and has become an integral part of dental care in the United States and Canada over the past 15 years. Worldwide, hundreds of thousands of people have had missing teeth successfully replaced by Dental Implants.
