What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. They provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer several advantages, including:

  • Restoring your ability to chew and speak properly
  • Preventing bone loss in the jaw
  • Preserving facial structure
  • Enhancing your smile and confidence
  • Improving overall oral health

How Are Dental Implants Placed?

The dental implant process typically involves several steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: Your dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine if you are a candidate for dental implants.
  2. Implant Placement: The titanium implant is surgically placed into the jawbone.
  3. Healing Process: The implant integrates with the jawbone during a process called osseointegration, which can take several months.
  4. Abutment Placement: Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, an abutment is placed on top of the implant to connect the implant to the replacement tooth.
  5. Placement of the Crown: A custom-made crown is placed on the abutment to complete the restoration.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. It is essential to maintain good oral hygiene and attend regular dental check-ups to ensure the longevity of your implants.
