What are dental implants? 

A dental implant is a prosthesis used to replace a missing tooth, or maybe multiple teeth. Permanent and stable, implants are the next best thing to a natural tooth. Implants settle in as part of your bone structure.

The process starts when your dentist uses a minor surgical procedure to place the implant into your jaw. The implant is given time, usually several weeks, to fuse with your jawbone, and when it has healed sufficiently and securely, they can attach an abutment to the implant that extends above the gumline.

Finally, after more healing time, a crown, bridge, partial dentures or full dentures are placed onto the abutment.

How many teeth can dental implants replace?

You can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even all of your teeth with dental implants. You don’t need a separate implant for each tooth; you can install a full, removable lower denture with only two implants, and a full, permanent lower or upper denture with only four implants. 

How long do dental implants last? 

Unlike your natural teeth, dental implants don’t decay. However, their longevity does rely on the health of your gums. 

Diligence around your oral health, including brushing, flossing, and regular professional cleanings, are critical for keeping your dental implants in top form. While each patient is different, dental implants last a lifetime with proper care. 

What are the benefits of getting dental implants?

Dental implants are designed to match your natural teeth, improving your smile for your lifetime. Replacing a missing tooth or teeth can improve your overall appearance and stabilize the structure of your jawbone, improving all facets of your oral health.

Restoring your ability to eat the foods you love, live an active lifestyle, and speak clearly can seem like a miracle cure if you’ve been struggling with missing or broken teeth. Thanks to dental implants, you can enjoy the look and feel of natural teeth and a permanent smile upgrade with proper care.
