Project Description

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial piece, typically made of titanium and shaped like a small screw, designed to act as a tooth root. Permanently fixed into the jawbone, it provides support for replacement teeth. Dental implants are an efficient treatment to replace missing teeth with new teeth that feel, look, and perform like natural teeth. Dental implants have many benefits and provide excellent long-term value:

  • Easier speaking and chewing. Forget about loose dentures or denture slip ups and restore a full bite force.
  • Comfortable fit. You won’t be able to tell the difference between your natural teeth and the implant tooth.

  • Maintain a youthful appearance. Dental implants can prevent facial sagging and premature aging.

  • Lifetime durability. The implant is made of bio-compatible titanium, which integrates with the jawbone.

  • A natural-looking smile. Dental implants feel, look, and perform just like your natural teeth.

  • Jawbone preservation. A toothless spot in the mouth can cause deterioration to the jawbone due to lack of stimulation, cause progressive bone loss if not attended.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

The ideal candidate for a dental implant is a patient with a missing tooth who has good general and oral health, with healthy gum tissues and free of periodontal disease. Adequate bone volume in your jaw is needed to support a dental implant.

What happens if I am not a good candidate?

Patients who have suffered significant bone volume loss, either because of disease, trauma, or the long-term absence of the natural teeth, may need an adequate restoration through bone grafting before being able to get a dental implant work done.

How long do implants take to heal?

Dental implants can take three to several months to integrate into place. The bone around a new implant needs time to heal so it can secure the implant into place. Jaw augmentation procedures (or bone grafting) require additional healing time, too, meaning the whole process could take several months to be completed.
