What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming a new standard in tooth replacement.

Periodontists use a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw. This union forms a strong and durable anchor for your new teeth. There are also no problems eating with dental implants, no need to repair them regularly and no more worrying about smiling freely and openly.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Dealing with missing teeth can be a stressful situation. While opting for dentures is more affordable in the short term, dental implants offer distinct advantages over other solutions. Dental implants perform a function similar to a tooth root, and because they are anchored in the jaw, they offer the most stable support for restorations. Using implants, patients can eat, speak, and laugh with total confidence that their artificial teeth will not slip out of place or click. Dental implants are also incredibly durable, usually offering a lifetime of support with proper care. Imagine never having to worry about your missing teeth ever again!
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Candidates for Dental Implants

Anyone who is missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or tooth decay may be a candidate for dental implants. The determining factor is the amount of available bone. A periodontist is the best person to evaluate whether dental implants are a viable solution for you.

It is important that you are in good health, however, as there are some conditions and diseases that can affect whether dental implants are right for you. For example, uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, radiation to the jaws, smoking, alcoholism, or uncontrolled periodontal disease may affect whether dental implants will fuse to your bone. It is important to let your periodontist know all about your medical status and all medications you are taking, whether prescribed, alternative (herbal) or over-the-counter.
