What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. They consist of a small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone, which serves as a replacement for the tooth root. Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, a custom-made dental crown is attached to the top of the post, creating a natural-looking replacement tooth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are several benefits to choosing dental implants as a tooth replacement option, including:
Improved appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing a natural-looking smile.
Improved function: Dental implants function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence.
Improved oral health: Dental implants can help prevent bone loss in the jaw and maintain the overall health of your mouth.
The Dental Implant Process
The dental implant process typically involves several steps, including:
Initial consultation and evaluation: During your initial consultation, our dental team will evaluate your teeth and gums, discuss your medical history, and determine whether dental implants are the right option for you.
Implant placement: The titanium post is surgically implanted into the jawbone.
Healing period: After the implant has been placed, there is a healing period of several months to allow the implant to fuse with the jawbone.
Attachment of the abutment: Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the top of the post.
Placement of the crown: Finally, a custom-made dental crown is attached to the abutment, creating a natural-looking replacement tooth.
Maintaining Your Dental Implants
Maintaining your dental implants is similar to maintaining your natural teeth. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups. With proper care, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
