Dental Implants Q & A

What do dental implants do?

Dental implants, for many patients, are the next best thing to having natural teeth. When you lose your teeth as a result of a traumatic injury, decay, or an illness, it can hurt your self-esteem. This is where dental implants can help. Dental implants feel and function like natural teeth. They're durable and stable, and function almost the same as natural teeth.

A dental implant is a titanium post that's surgically anchored into your jawbone, beneath the gum line. Essentially, it’s the “root” of your new tooth. After the post is implanted and your mouth has healed, your dentist will attach the new replacement tooth, or crown, to the metal post permanently. The implants fuse to your jawbone, so they are strong, stable, and don’t shift in your mouth.

These screw-like metal posts can also help crowns, bridges, and dentures stay securely attached to your jaw.


What are the advantages of dental implants?

Beyond functioning, feeling, and looking like your natural teeth, dental implants offer the following advantages:

  • Are permanent and can last a lifetime
  • Are a cost-effective way to replace missing teeth
  • Help maintain your natural smile and face shape
  • Ensure the health of your jawbone
  • Help keep your surrounding natural teeth healthy
  • Help you talk casually and without worry
  • Don't fall out of your mouth
  • Are durable and strong for eating your favorite foods
  • Aren't wide open to cavities with an implanted crown
  • Offer a proven, predictable outcome for tooth repair

Can anyone get dental implants?

Whether you're missing one tooth or multiple teeth, you could be a great dental implant candidate. Your jaw needs to be finished growing, and your gums must be healthy. That's why dental implants are a fantastic solution for adults, not children.

You might also be a perfect candidate for implants if you're tired of having dentures that won't stay in place, or if you're ready to replace a bridge or partial dentures. Men or women wanting a permanent, lifelong solution to ongoing dental work may be exceptional dental implant candidates. Wondering if dental implants are right for you? Meet with your dentist to ask questions and learn more about your options.
