Dental Implants

Dental implants are more than just a way to complete your smile and feel better about the way you look. They have many health benefits, as well!

Here is an outline about dental implants, how they work, what to expect, and how they can improve your health and your smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth-replacements that consist of three basic parts: the dental implant post, the abutment to secure your dental implant, and the crown, which is the part that people see.

The dental implant post is made of a biocompatible titanium post that will naturally integrate with your bone. An abutment is designed to hold your crown in place. It is secured directly into your dental implant and then your implant crown sits atop the abutment, completing your smile.

Your dental implant crown is a custom creation designed to match your smile perfectly. Our dentists are highly skilled in the art of designing natural-looking dental implants that last a long time.

Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants

Dental implants have a number of benefits over other tooth replacement options. They are the longest lasting solution to missing teeth and can benefit your health in the following ways:

Retain bone – Dental implants become part of your body through the process of osseointegration. This means they mimic your natural teeth and preserve valuable bone.

Bite preservation – Without replacing a missing tooth, your teeth will naturally drift to fill in the gap in your smile. This can expose the roots of your remaining natural teeth, cause issues with periodontal disease and decay, and also cause misalignment with your smile. Dental implants hold your teeth in place by closing the gap in your smile.

No dietary restrictions – While you should never bite into very hard objects such as olive pits or ice cubes because it can damage your dental work and your natural teeth, but with dental implants, you can enjoy all foods because implants provide exceptional stability. This allows you to eat a healthy diet!

Implant-retained dentistry – Having dental implants is great for one or multiple missing teeth. We can even use dental implants to secure your denture or bridge to give your dentistry added stability.

Cosmetic benefits – Dental implants look natural, and when you smile, no one will notice that you have a dental implant. They do not shift or move when you eat and speak, giving you added confidence!

Dental Implant Care

You can brush and floss your teeth normally with dental implants. When you come in for your regular dental exams and cleanings, we will check your dental implant and make sure it is still functioning properly. Keeping your gums healthy is important both for your natural teeth and dental implants. Healthy gums are an important part of a healthy smile!
