Dental Implants Q & A

What are Dental Implants? 

When a dentist needs to secure bridges, replace a missing tooth, or anchor dentures and overdentures he or she will utilize a dental implant. This advanced treatment is the only option available which will work with the jawbone to stimulate it and uphold the soft tissues. Titanium is used to make the metal posts of the implant because it is a very biocompatible metal. The “root” of the new prosthetic tooth will be the stable titanium post which is implanted in the bone. The visible tooth is made from a crown, usually crafted from porcelain. These crowns look almost exactly like a natural tooth. 

How Are Dental Implants Implanted?

For most people, the placement is a three-part procedure. During the initial appointment, the post is implanted into the jawbone. The titanium will then be allowed to fuse with the jawbone for the next few weeks. This fusing process provides a very stable foundation and because it is stimulating the natural bone the soft tissues of the face and mouth stay intact. Bone loss accompanied by the loss of a tooth is also reduced significantly. During the second appointment, an abutment is installed. The crown, denture, or bridge designed to act as the tooth prosthetic is attached to the implant post using the abutment. An impression of the gap and the surrounding teeth will be used to craft the prosthetic tooth. At the last appointment, the prosthetic is connected to the implant via the abutment and buffed until smooth.

How Long Will a Dental Implant Last?

When a patient receives a dental implant and they take care of the device, as well as the surrounding gum tissue, the implant should be strong and stable for his or her lifetime. These devices are truly designed to replace a tooth permanently.
