What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are restorations used for replacing missing teeth. They may be used to replace a single tooth or to stabilize a complete denture to replace an entire arch of teeth. These versatile restorations look like small screws that are surgically placed into the jawbone where they derive their strength and stability.
Advantages of dental implants
The benefits include:
- Natural appearance
- Strength and durability
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
The best candidate for dental implants has a healthy smile with sufficient bone. Bone structure is necessary for the implant procedure to be successful. The bone wraps around the implant during a process called osseointegration. This solidifies the implant in place and allows it to last a lifetime with proper care. Patients should also have a smile free from periodontal disease. Loss of bone can cause an implant to fall out and require replacement, which can be costly and time consuming. If patients do not have sufficient bone, they can ask about procedures such as bone grafting to prepare their smile.
