What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is essentially a replacement for the root structure of a missing tooth. A dental implant is a titanium post that’s surgically drilled into the jawbone underneath the empty socket of a missing tooth. Once the dental implant is in place, your jawbone tissues gradually heal around the titanium post, making it a firmly rooted part of your dental anatomy. Over time, the dental implant becomes a root that offers a firm and stable base for the prosthetic tooth.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
- Replaces the natural root structure of the missing tooth
- Offers a firm and stable base for the dental crown
- Can replace one, several, or even all of the missing teeth
- Can support dental crowns, bridges, and dentures
- Offers a lifelong solution to missing teeth
- Looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth
- Maintaining dental implants is simple
- Restores complete bite force, so you can eat whatever you want
The Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure is performed by an oral surgeon — not a general dentist. The implant placement procedure is fairly simple. After administering local anesthesia or general anesthesia, the oral surgeon makes a small incision on the gum tissues and inserts the titanium post into your jawbone, following which your mouth is allowed to heal and recover. Over the next couple of months, your jawbone tissues will heal around the implant, making it a firmly rooted part of your dental anatomy, following which the permanent restoration is placed.
The specific details of the dental implant process vary from one individual to the next.
