Your Guide to Dental Implants

What They Are

dental implantsDental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth. A dentist first conducts a procedure implanting a titanium screw into the jawbone, which acts as the tooth root. They’ll give you anywhere between three to eight weeks for the bone to adhere to the screw, depending on your rate of healing. Then, a cap is placed on the screw, and a crown is placed on top of the cap. The crown looks and feels just like a real tooth.

Their Benefits

The main benefit of getting an implant is that it’s a very real replacement for your tooth. You can speak, chew, and brush your teeth as you did before losing the tooth. Patients often forget they have lost a tooth and that there is a faux tooth in its place. In addition to the convenience, implants provide many health benefits.

The faux tooth root is something that dentures and bridges don’t have, and it serves an important purpose. The root is an important part of the jawbone. When it’s missing, the bone goes through something called resorption, which is a shrinking of the bone. The resulting bone loss weakens the jaw and can change the appearance of your face as the muscles detach from the bone. Implants prevent this from happening, ensuring you maintain a healthy, attractive face.
