What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are replacements for missing or damaged teeth. A single dental implant consists of an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is surgically placed in the jaw. Titanium is a biocompatible material that fuses with the bone in your jaw through a process called osseointegration. Once the implant bonds with the bone it forms a solid hold that can last for a lifetime. An implant can support a single crown to replace one tooth and multiple implants can support bridges or dentures to replace multiple teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are considered to be the highest quality tooth replacement option due to their many benefits:

  • Natural function. A dental implant functions like a natural tooth because it is anchored in the jaw the same way your natural teeth are. It provides the same bite strength as a healthy tooth.
  • Natural appearance. Dental implants look very natural because they are anchored in the jaw like your natural teeth.
  • Can last a lifetime. Once an implant fully fuses with the bone in your jaw, it can remain in place for the rest of your life. The crown or other prosthetic may need to be replaced over time, but the implant root should not.
  • Can support bridges and dentures. Dental implants are capable of supporting both bridges and dentures, providing a secure anchor to keep them solidly in place.
  • Won’t damage healthy teeth. Dental implants, unlike bridges, do not affect healthy teeth at all. They exist independently of your other teeth.
  • Preserves your Jaw bone. The bone that makes up your jaw is there just to support teeth. Once a tooth is removed the body starts to resorb the bone that once held the tooth. An implant simulates a root of a tooth, and thus preserves the volume and density of the bone.

Dental Implant Options

Dental implants offer a variety of tooth replacement options:

Single tooth replacement. A dental implant can replace a single tooth that is lost or damaged beyond saving.

Implant supported bridge. When a few adjacent teeth need to be replaced, 2 implants can support a bridge.

TeethXpress. Your smile can be replaced all at once with multiple implants strategically placed throughout your jaw. TeethXpress is a one day process. We can provide you with a complete replacement smile in just one appointment.

Implant supported dentures. Just a few dental implants can support a full set of dentures, providing a more secure hold than traditional dentures.

Common questions about implants
Investing in dental implants

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you have one or more missing or damaged teeth that need to be replaced, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. The key to dental implant readiness is having sufficient bone structure in your jaw to support it. When a tooth has been missing for a long time the bone and other support structures for that tooth will weaken and eventually dissolve, making implant placement risky. But a bone grafting procedure can be done to prepare the jaw and encourage the bone to regenerate. Once this process is complete and successful, you will be ready to receive an implant.

Our modern approach to dentistry makes everything we do more efficient for a better overall patient experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do dental implants feel natural?

A dental implant will feel the same as a natural tooth once it is successfully in place. Once you get used to it, you most likely won’t be able to tell the difference between your implant and your other teeth.

What is the dental implant success rate?

Dental implants are successful 98% of the time, as long as your dentist places it accurately and you follow your dentist’s instructions for follow up care. We use nSequence® digital guided surgery to ensure that we place your implant at the correct angle and depth for optimal success.

Will a dental implant match the rest of my teeth?

The crown attached to your dental implant will be custom made to be the same color as your existing teeth and the same shape as the original tooth. Most crowns are made of porcelain because it resembles tooth enamel for a natural appearance.

How long does the dental implant process take?

The total length of time depends on your individual needs, but on average it could take anywhere from 6 months to a year to have one or more dental implants placed. If you need preparatory procedures such as bone grafting it can take longer. Time must be allotted for healing between steps in the process for best results.
