WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jaw bone and serves as an anchor for a crown, bridge or denture. Implants have emerged as one of the top choices for tooth replacement due to their high rate of long-term success. In fact, with proper care, up to 95% of implants are expected to last decades. The dental implant complex consists of a titanium screw, abutment and restoration.

Natural-looking tooth replacement option

Dental implants are a well-established and proven solution for replacing missing teeth. Made of biocompatible titanium, implants are surgically placed into the jawbone where they fuse with the bone over time. This integrated screw then serves as the foundation for an individual porcelain crown or multiple-tooth bridge. Implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth once the permanent restoration is attached.

Surgery
In some cases where bone has resorbed over time, additional bone volume may be required. A graft using donor bone or synthetic bone substitute is completed to augment the site and make it more suitable to place a dental implant. Specialized tools are used to gently insert the implant into the bone. The implants is allowed to heal independently for three to six months to allow the bone to integrate and bond directly to the implant surface through a process known as osseointegration.

Prosthetic Reconstruction
Once integrated, the healing screw is removed and an abutment placed. The final crown, bridge or denture is fabricated and secured to the abutment to complete the tooth replacement process.

Implant Placement Surgery
The implant placement surgery, performed under local anesthesia, involves creating precise openings in the jawbone to carefully place titanium implant post(s). A healing period is required for the implants to integrate with the surrounding bone.

Abutment Attachment
Once the implants have successfully fused with the jawbone (typically 3-6 months), you'll return for a second minor procedure to attach the abutments - small connector posts that protrude through the gum line and serve as the foundation for your final restoration.

Final Restoration Placement
After the abutments are in place, we'll take impressions and precise measurements to create your custom-made restoration(s) - crowns, bridges, or dentures, meticulously crafted to match your natural teeth for an aesthetic and functional result, depending on your specific needs.

Frequently asked questions

HOW LONG DO DENTAL IMPLANTS LAST?

When cared for properly, dental implants can function for 10-20+ years on average. Proper hygiene and regular maintenance visits help ensure longevity.

WHAT MAINTENANCE IS INVOLVED?

Meticulous home care is required including brushing and flossing. Electric tooth brushes and water flossers are good aids in keeping the implants and surrounding gum tissue healthy. Routine check-ups are recommended to monitor for infections and bone levels around the implants.

WILL I LOOK LIKE I HAVE IMPLANTS?

The most difficult component cosmetically is to have the gum tissue look the same around the implant as it does on the adjacent teeth. This will vary depending on the amount of bone and soft tissue available and the position of the dental implant. A key factor on how natural an implant looks is related to treatment planning and execution skills of the Prosthodontist.

CAN I EAT ANYTHING WITH IMPLANTS?

Once fully healed, implant allow enjoyment of all foods. Implants are strong and rigid. However, biting too hard on hard objects or heavy clenching or grinding can cause the porcelain on the restoration to fracture, the restoration to come loose or even the dental implant to fail. These are not common events but are possibilities.
