All you need to know about Dental Implants


 

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS
 
Implant 1-46-217 A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Replacing a Single Tooth If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.

Replacing Several Teeth If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.

Replacing All of Your Teeth If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-suppported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
 

THE IMPLANT PROCESS

 
Not everyone has the right jaw structure for this treatment, and a consultation is recommended with your dentist to see if an implant is the right option for you.

This procedure is a team effort between you, your Dentist and your Oral Surgeon. Your Oral Surgeon and Dentist will consult with you to determine where and how your implant should be placed.

Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your Team will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.

Implants offer a solid, permanent replacement to your natural teeth by functioning as anchors for dentures, crowns or bridges.

An implant is like an artificial tooth root, and is placed into the jaw bone where a tooth has been lost. 

One or more implants can be used, depending on the size of the space. After a time of healing (usually a few months), an artificial tooth is attached to the implant.

Treatment takes between three to six months to complete.

After treatment, your Dental Team will work closely with you and your dentist to develop the best care plan for you. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.


IMPLANT HOME CARE

As you know, your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!
