What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jaw to hold the replacement tooth, bridge, or overdenture. Implants provide a good foundation for the replacement teeth that are fashioned to match the color, texture, size, and shape of your natural teeth. A titanium post or screw is integrated into the jawbone (acting as the tooth root), upon which an artificial porcelain or zirconium tooth (acting as the tooth crown) is affixed.

A dental implant is typically comprised of three parts:

Implant

This is the screw that serves as the root of the new tooth. It attaches to your jaw and forms the basis of support to the would-be crown.

Abutment

This is a permanent connector that is placed on the implant to support the crown in place.

Crown

It is a prosthetic tooth that adheres to the abutment and is visible inside the mouth. Made up of zirconium or porcelain, it provides brilliant strength, durability, and aesthetics to the user.

Implants are great options for people who have lost a tooth or teeth to periodontal disease, injury, or other factors. About 3 million people in the United States have dental implants, and another 500,000 implants are placed each year, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Good Oral Health
Decay can affect the success of implants.

Good Overall Health
Chronic conditions such as poorly controlled diabetes can limit healing.

Not Smoking
Tobacco use reduces the body’s ability to heal after surgery.

Healthy Gums
The health of your gums affects the stability of your implants.

Sufficient Bone Density
Sufficient bone tissue is necessary for the successful placement of implants.

What If I Need to Replace Multiple Teeth?

A dental implant is a way to go if you are looking to replace a single tooth. Nevertheless, in circumstances that demand multiple teeth replacements, you can still consider implants for the position.

Implant-Supported Bridge
Two dental implants will receive dental crowns on either side of the missing tooth space. This allows for the replacement of multiple teeth with only two dental implants on either side.

Implant-Retained Denture (All-on)
If you are missing most of your teeth in a single dental arch, your dentist can use the “All-on” concept to fix you up with a full set of pearly whites. 4, 6, or 8 dental implants will be placed in a single arch, which then receives a complete denture, successfully replacing the missing teeth.

Procedure

Prior to the dental implant surgery, your dentist will examine your oral health to address your tooth replacement needs as well as create an individualized treatment plan for you with the assistance of x-rays and a CT scan.

  • Your dentist will place the titanium post within your jawbone using a surgical-guided technology. You will be placed under local anesthetic to avoid any sensations of pain and discomfort.
  • The surgical site is left to heal. The healing time is typically 3 to 4 months during which time the titanium post should fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration.
  • Once healed, your new custom-designed crown is connected to your dental implant with an abutment head. Your new teeth will look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Immediately Following Procedure

Your dentist will provide recovery instructions and you will be prescribed pain medications to help manage swelling and discomfort. You will generally be advised to eat soft food for a period of time and commit to a healthy oral hygiene routine.

Dental implants are critical dental prostheses and will require extensive post-surgical care. Smokers should quit because smoking can affect osseointegration, the process by which implant anchors to the jaw bone. For this reason, smokers face a greater risk of implant failure as compared to non-smokers.
