WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants serve as a natural-looking and highly functional solution to missing teeth. The implant is a small post that replaces the tooth root and will have a crown or bridge fixture fastened above. This will serve as a non-removable system that will get you chewing and smiling again.
DENTAL IMPLANT DETAILS
PARTS OF A DENTAL IMPLANT
Depending on your needs, it is possible to have a single crown, a bridge, or a full arch of teeth fixed to implants. There are many types of implant restorations, and your dentist will discuss which is right for you.
An abutment will be used to connect your implant to the restoration above. Your dentist may also use a healing abutment to allow your gums to heal properly between implant placement and insertion of your restoration.
The implant itself is a small titanium post that acts as a replacement for your tooth root. It is screwed into place in a surgical procedure and restored for function after healing.
DENTAL IMPLANT CONSULTATION
At your consultation, your doctor will go over your oral and health history in detail to determine if you are a good candidate for implants. The site of the missing or damaged tooth will be assessed, and it will be determined whether additional procedures such as sinus lifting or bone grafting are necessary.
THE DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE & PLACEMENT
The day of your implant surgery, your dentist will ensure you are appropriately comfortable and numb. The site will be cleaned and your implant post will be placed. Your doctor will determine your follow-up instructions and guide you on when to have your implant tooth restored.
DENTAL IMPLANT MAINTENANCE
Once your implant is placed, it is important you maintain proper oral hygiene including brushing and flossing around your new tooth as bone loss can occur around implants with improper maintenance. It is essential you continue to see your dental team at least twice a year for your checkups and cleanings as they will ensure your new implant remains healthy.
