Dental implants are a popular alternative to dentures, bridgework, and other dental procedures used to replace severely damaged or missing teeth. Implants can also be used to secure dentures, making it easier for patients to speak and eat more naturally. A dental implant is an artificial root that is permanently integrated into the jawbone. A small titanium screw is fixed into the jaw and the artificial tooth (crown) is cemented on top with an abutment. For patients who receive implant-supported dentures, there are a variety of options available, and your dentist can help find the one that is right for you.

Implants have a great advantage over other restorative treatments in that they preserve the supporting bone structures. In addition, a single-tooth replacement does not require any modifications to the surrounding teeth. Dental implants require numerous appointments to the dentist, but they have a success rate of approximately 98%, with more than 40 years of clinical research and date to support their use and success. With proper care, dental implants will outlast conventional dentistry.

The procedure of placing and completing a dental implant is very complex, and implant dentistry is a specialized field of dentistry. In some cases, your dentist or oral health professional may need to refer you to a specialist to ensure that your treatment is successful. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with your implant specialist if you are missing teeth to discuss whether dental implants are the best restorative option for you.
