What is a Dental Implant?
Unlike fillings or crowns that are bonded to the tooth, dental implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone below the gum line. After the implant is surgically placed in the bone and allowed to heal, an artificial, natural-looking tooth is attached to it. Dental implants are extremely popular choices for people who have lost a tooth, or multiple teeth, due to periodontal disease, injury, or a medical condition.
A dental implant is a replacement for your tooth's roots and is anchored to your jaw bone. Once put into place, these implants enable the dentist to attach a crown (cap), denture, or bridge to them. These are designed to be long lasting and with care can last for many years.
Minor surgery is required to insert and secure the implants to the jawbone. After the oral surgery, the bone is given time to grow and fuse around the implant base. This process can take 3 - 6 months depending on individual circumstances. Once the implant is in place, a crown is attached to give you a highly realistic-looking and functional prosthetic tooth.
The procedure is best for patients with significant tooth loss or decay and for people whose bone loss in the jaw area prevents them from getting conventionally oriented (vertical) dental implants. It also helps prevent further bone loss in the jaw.
Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural. Some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes, such as dentures.
