What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a dental restoration that replaces one or multiple missing teeth. They consist of an implant post, an abutment, and a restoration. The restoration may consist of a single tooth, multiple teeth in a row, or an entire arch of missing teeth.

The implant post is made of a body-safe metal, such as titanium, and creates a permanent and stable base for your dental restoration. The post also performs the same function as your natural tooth root and stimulates your jaw. This is essential because it prevents bone loss and preserves your facial structure.

Dental implants keep your neighboring teeth from shifting into the empty space a missing tooth leaves behind and provide the base you need to chew your food effectively. This is important for digestion and overall health and also to prevent uneven wear on your teeth.

The types of implant-supported tooth implants we provide are:

Implant-Supported Crowns: Implant-supported dental crowns are artificial teeth that replace a single missing tooth. Our crowns can replace any tooth, from molars to incisors. We carefully craft your dental implant to match the size, shape, and color of your missing tooth so it blends seamlessly with your smile.

Implant-Supported Bridges: Implant-supported bridges are an excellent way to replace multiple missing teeth in a row. We craft your dental bridge to match the size and shape of your natural teeth and artfully match the shade so they blend beautifully with your smile for a natural appearance. Implant-supported bridges consist of a dental implant supporting a crown at the beginning and end of the bridge with prosthetic teeth, known as pontics, suspended between them. The implants provide a secure base to rejuvenate your bite pattern.

Implant-Supported Dentures: If you're missing most or all of the teeth in your upper, lower, or both arches, then implant-supported dentures may be the solution you're looking for. These custom dental restorations are carefully crafted to rejuvenate the integrity of your bite and the beauty of your smile. Implant-supported dentures consist of artificial teeth set in a body-safe plastic base that mimics the appearance of healthy gums for a natural look. They are permanently held in place by strategically set dental implants. This means you won't have to worry about messy pastes or adhesives to secure your dentures.

Our Dental Implant Process

Our team is passionate about protecting your smile as well as your peace of mind. That is why we combine quality dental care with sedation dentistry and a gentle chairside manner to help you have a positive experience every time you visit.

We begin our dental implant process with a thorough exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums. We use modern technology like our CBCT scanner to gather images of your teeth to determine the current condition of your oral health.

Our friendly team will discuss the results of our findings with you and actively listen to your input, concerns, and smile goals. We craft a treatment plan that's tailored to you and your unique needs. If you have any conditions that must be addressed prior to receiving dental implants, such as gum disease or a brittle jaw, we include the necessary pretreatments, such as bone grafts or extractions, in your plan.

Our compassionate dentist performs the implant post placement surgery as well as some pretreatments. We offer nitrous oxide or oral sedation to maximize your comfort throughout the procedure. After the implant post has been placed, you need time to heal and allow the post to fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration.

When your implant post has successfully fused with your jaw, we will attach the abutment and the dental crown, bridge, or dentures to restore your smile.

Dental Implant FAQs

We enjoy educating our patients on their treatments and how they protect their oral health. That is why we encourage you to ask questions and share your concerns. We are happy to provide the answers and information you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants.

Do dental implants hurt?

No. Dental implants are designed to fit comfortably with your natural teeth. We also use local anesthetics and provide sedation to keep you relaxed and at ease during placement. You may feel some discomfort after the procedure. However, it goes away within a few days, and you can take over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate any pain you might feel.

Yes. The titanium implant post permanently fuses with your jawbone to create a stable and reliable base for the abutment and restoration. While the post is permanent, your implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture can last for 10-15 years when you care for them properly. If your restoration becomes broken or lost, then a new restoration will be fitted, but you won't need to go through the implant surgery again.

Dental implants are easy to care for. You can simply brush and floss your dental implant twice daily, just like your natural teeth. Be sure to maintain your biannual dental visits so our dentist can verify the integrity of your restoration.
