Dental implants are designed to permanently replace your teeth. They look, feel and function just like your original teeth, right down to stimulating your supporting bone tissue so that it remains healthy and will hold your teeth and implants stable in your mouth. Like your original teeth, implants also require regular care in the form of brushing, flossing and routine dental visits in order to stay healthy and continue to provide you with a functional tooth replacement.
Implants have two main parts, the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post is a small screw, usually made of titanium, that is surgically inserted into your jawbone to replace your tooth root. After your mouth has healed and you have recovered from the implant placement, an implant restoration can be provided to complete your treatment. Implant restorations may be a crown, bridge or a denture, depending on how many teeth you are replacing. Each restoration is custom-designed to fit your smile and provide you with a beautiful and long-lasting result.
Almost everyone is a candidate for dental implants. If your teeth and gums are healthy and you have sufficient supporting bone, you should be able to receive an implant without difficulty. If you lack sufficient bone tissue to support the implant or if you have a dental problem such as tooth decay or periodontal disease, you will need to receive treatment for that problem before you can receive an implant.
