Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement. During this procedure, your dentist surgically implants into your jawbone a titanium anchor that acts as a substitute for your tooth’s root.
Small posts that are attached to these implants will support the artificial tooth. You can replace one, several, or all of your missing teeth using dental implants.
There are several advantages to dental implants.
Dental implants are one of the longest-lasting dental restorations available. A dental bridge needs replacing every 10 years, but an implant can last 30 years or more.
A dental implant fuses to the living bone; no other restoration can provide the same stability. Eating, smiling, and speaking is the same as with your natural teeth.
Bone loss is a common problem with missing teeth. As the bone recedes, it can create problems for other teeth and cause your face to sag or droop. Dental implants help maintain bone density and the natural shape of your face and smile.
Dental implants stay in your mouth, so you don’t have to remove them overnight or worry about losing them. You also don’t have to use adhesives, so you can taste and enjoy all the foods you love.
Dental implants typically involve two surgical procedures.
During your first appointment, your dentist places your implant into your jawbone. In the three to six months following your surgery, your implants gradually fuse with your jawbone beneath the surface of your gums.
Once your implant is securely in place, your dentist uncovers it and attaches a small healing collar to encourage your gums to heal. Your dentist also takes impressions of the area so they can start making your replacement teeth.
When your mouth heals, your dentist connects your replacement tooth to your implant using posts or attachments. The entire dental implant process usually takes six to eight months and doesn’t disrupt your daily life.
