What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are made up of a titanium cylinder that is placed in the jawbone. An abutment is screwed into the implant and a crown is cemented on top. It looks and feels like a real tooth. Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures.
How do dental implants work?
A dental implant creates a replacement for your missing tooth’s root and provides a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. Nearby teeth are not altered to support a periodontal implant and more of the dental tissue is left intact. People with dentures can have two implants placed where the dentures snap in, for a more stable appliance.
Treatment can be finished in three to five visits over a period of about four to 12 months. The procedure is simple and can last a lifetime. The benefits of dental implants include:
- Better function and ability to chew
- Improved speech
- Enhanced oral health
- Polished appearance
