What is Involved in Dental Implants?

dental implantsIf you’re missing one or more teeth, it can affect your smile as well as your oral health. You may feel uncomfortable and wonder about the best way to correct the problem.

Dental implants can offer a solution that looks and feels natural. This dental procedure is affordable and yields predictable results that will meet your expectations.

In this blog, the doctors at Dental365 explain what’s involved in getting dental implants.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that are surgically placed into your jawbone beneath your gum line by your dentist. They provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth, and they don’t have to be anchored to adjacent teeth.

When are they needed?

Implants can be used for the following reasons:

  • You’re missing one or more teeth.
  • You currently wear a removable denture or bridge, and it’s making speech and/or eating difficult.
  • You want a permanent solution to your issues.
  • You want your replacement teeth to look natural and function like your regular teeth.
  • You want a solution that requires no alteration of nearby teeth and gives you easy access to floss between your teeth.

What is involved?

Your dentist will work with you to devise a treatment plan that will address your specific issues.

The tooth root implant (a small post made of titanium) will then be placed in the bone socket of the missing tooth. Your jaw will heal and grow around the implant in six to twelve weeks.

After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, your dentist will attach a small connector to the implant to hold the new tooth securely in place.

The new tooth will be made after your dentist makes an impression of your teeth to create a model of your bite. This replacement tooth – called a crown – is securely attached to the connector post.
