What are dental implants?

These artificial replacement tooth roots are designed to hold a dental restoration in place. Because the implant acts like tooth roots it’s also placed into the jawbone where over the course of a couple months the bone and tissue surrounding the implant will actually fuse together with the metal implant.

From there, the implant is uncovered and an abutment is placed on top. An abutment is designed to connect the implant to the dental restoration. After a few more weeks of healing the dental restoration (most often a dental crown) is secured to the top of the implant.

What are the many ways implants can be used?

When people think about dental implants they often assume that they are only meant for those missing a single tooth. While a single implant can be placed to replace just one missing tooth those with several missing teeth or even those suffering from complete tooth loss can also benefit. After all, dental implants are no one-trick ponies!

When it comes to replacing several teeth multiple implants can be placed into the jawbone to also hold dental bridges, as well as partial and even complete dentures. If you were ever worried about the way dentures move around in your mouth you won’t have to when you get dental implants.

Because an implant serves as a strong, fixed foundation from which to attach your restoration, when your teeth are secured to the implant you’ll feel confident knowing that your teeth aren’t going anywhere. Feel comfortable talking to those around you and enjoy all your favorite meals again when you get your dental implant smile. Plus, no one will even know that your teeth aren’t real!
