What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a tooth replacement that is made up of three parts: the implant post, the abutment, and the tooth restoration. Dental implants are increasing in popularity because they are the only dental restoration that replaces both the crown of the tooth as well as the root. The significance of replacing the entire tooth is that the artificial tooth root provides a strong anchor for the crown and continues to stimulate your jaw, which prevents bone loss.

Dental implants are available for crowns, bridges, and both partial and full dentures. We will sit down with you to discuss your needs and goals to create a custom treatment plan for your tooth restoration journey.

Our Dental Implant Process

From the moment you walk into our office, you will notice our compassionate team is ready to help you through the dental implant process, beginning with helping you understand what to expect at every step of our procedure. We start with a thorough and detailed oral exam to understand the current state of your oral health. If we find your jaw is too thin or brittle to receive the dental implant post, then we may perform a bone graft to strengthen your jaw for the next step in the process.

We work with a trusted specialist to place the titanium post that will serve as your artificial tooth root. Once the post has fused with your jawbone, a process called osseointegration, you will visit our welcoming dental practice for the final step, which is securing the prosthesis to the dental implant post. Our team believes you deserve the smile you’ve been longing for, and we work with you to create a custom restoration that is color matched to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Dental Implant FAQs

We understand you will have questions, and our friendly team encourages you to ask them and share your concerns. We are happy to provide the answers and information you need to make an informed decision regarding your oral health. Here are some of the most common questions we receive:

There are a number of factors that determine whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants. Factors such as jawbone density and gum disease play a role in your restoration options. Should you have complications that initially prevent you from being a good candidate for implants, we will recommend a treatment plan designed to restore your oral health and prepare you for implants whenever possible.
Dental implant posts are designed to last a lifetime, and a dental restoration can last for decades when you care for them properly. It is vital that you do not use the restoration as a tool, such as to open bottles or cans.
Yes, we offer implant-supported dentures. There are many options, including All-on-4®, partial, and full dentures. Our team will fully examine your gums and jaws to determine which solution is right for you.
Though some discomfort during the placement and healing period is common, we do everything we can to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process. However, once the restoration is complete, your day-to-day life won’t include pain from the dental implant.
Dental implants are relatively easy to care for. You will brush and floss your dental implants twice daily, just like your natural teeth. It is also important that you maintain your regular dental appointments to help ensure your gums and restoration stay healthy and strong.
