About Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jaw bone and functions like a natural tooth root. They can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. 

Dental Implants FAQs

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Provided treatment is successful and the patient takes good care of them, dental implants are a stable and permanent solution for missing teeth. 

    Dental implants are tiny titanium rods that are surgically implanted into the jaw. Titanium is compatible with human tissue and can therefore bond with the jaw bone, creating a sturdy base for an artificial tooth.

    Dental implants can help improve the appearance and function of your mouth, making it easier to chew and speak, and even smile with confidence.

  • Are dental implants safe?

    Dental implants are considered to be safe and effective replacements for missing teeth. As with any medical procedure, however, there is a risk of complications. That being said, a knowledgeable, well-trained dentist will minimize complications and help ensure that problems will be handled properly, should they arise. Dental implants are one of the most reliable and long-lasting ways to replace missing teeth.

  • Is dental implant placement painful?

    Most patients can be fully sedated, partially sedated, or numbed with an anesthetic during the procedure itself, so there is typically minimal discomfort during this process. 

    The first few days of the recovery period is usually when patients experience the most discomfort. Rest, pain medication and icing the area is usually prescribed.

  • Is it common for dental implants to fail?

    Dental implants have a high success rate, but some people experience dental implant failure either shortly after a procedure or months or years later. If your implants fail, your dentist will develop a treatment plan to help restore your oral health.

  • Why do missing teeth need to be replaced?

    There are many reasons it is beneficial to replace missing teeth. Gaps in the teeth can make speaking and chewing awkward and difficult, and for some people, they can have a negative impact on self-confidence.

    In addition, the surrounding teeth may begin to shift into the open space, resulting in misalignment and eventually jaw pain and further problems with speaking and eating.

    Teeth also help stimulate jaw bone regeneration, and so when they are missing, bone loss can occur in the area, weakening the jawbone and resulting in a condition called facial collapse.

    Dental implants can be a long-lasting and durable solution to all of these issues.
