What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that serve as root substitutions. During surgery, the implants are inserted into your jawbone. Several months will pass before the implants are fully integrated into your mouth. A temporary appliance will substitute for the tooth or teeth during this phase.
Once your implants are ready, small connector posts will be attached to your implants to securely hold your new teeth. Replacement teeth (crowns) will then be anchored into place. Two or more surgical procedures will be necessary to achieve final results.
What Conditions Respond Best to Dental Implants?
Dental implants are ideal for:
- One or more missing teeth
- Deeply decayed teeth
- Damaged or fractured teeth
- Congenital tooth defects
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants may be an option if you are replacing a tooth or receiving a crown, partial dentures, or full dentures.
Dental implants are not for everyone. Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and bones to support the implant. X-rays and CT scans will be taken to determine your eligibility.
What Results Can Be Expected After Dental Implants?
After surgery, you will regain the ability to speak, smile and eat with confidence. Dental implants can dramatically improve your quality of life. Your mouth may feel slightly swollen or tender for several days, but you should be able to resume normal activities within a day.
Excellent oral hygiene is necessary to ensure the long-term success of your implants. It's also important to note that heavy smoking has been associated with implant failure.
