What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are replacements for teeth that are missing or need to be extracted. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed in the jaw. It is made of titanium, a biocompatible material that fuses with the bone to form a solid bond that mimics your natural tooth root. An artificial tooth is attached to the implant to replace a single tooth. Multiple implants can be placed in the jaw to support a bridge or dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implants

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

Looks natural.  A dental implant looks natural because it is anchored in the jaw like your existing teeth. The crown is made of porcelain that resembles natural tooth enamel and is made to match the size and color of the missing tooth.

Functions like a natural tooth.  The secure bond of a dental implant allows you to chew effectively as you would with a natural tooth.

Prevents bone loss. A dental implant prevents bone loss in the jaw by fusing with the bone and filling the empty space.

Does not damage healthy teeth.  As opposed to the alternative tooth replacement option (bridge), a dental implant will not damage or permanently alter your existing healthy teeth.

Lasts a lifetime.  In most cases, a dental implant will last for the rest of your life.

Are You a Good Candidate for Implants?

To be eligible for dental implants, the biggest factor is the condition of your jaw. When a tooth is missing from the socket, the support structures for that tooth will weaken and resorb (dissolve) over time. The longer a tooth has been missing, the more resorption will have taken place, which can mean your jaw will not support a dental implant.

If you are not a candidate for dental implants due to a lack of bone structure in your jaw, a procedure is available that can help. Bone grafting involves the placement of a bone fragment over the existing bone. The fragment bonds with the remaining bone and encourages the regeneration of lost bone tissue. After a few months of regrowth, you will likely be ready for dental implant placement.

Single Dental Implant

Dental implants are small anchors made of a biocompatible metal called titanium that are placed in the jawbone to replace missing teeth in the mouth. After placement, the anchors will begin to fuse with the bone over the course of a few months. After the fusing process, known as osseointegration, abutment posts are inserted into the anchors to allow for the permanent attachment of the replacement teeth.

Implant Supported Bridges

An implant supported bridge is a restorative solution for spaces where three or more adjacent teeth are missing. This restoration typically requires two implants to support the bridge that provides a functional and aesthetic replacement for a patient’s natural teeth.

Fully Edentulous (Toothless) Solutions

For patients missing many or all of their teeth, implant retained or implant supported dentures may be an alternative to traditional dentures. These solutions can simulate the look and feel of natural teeth and stay fixed in place with the implants acting as anchors. Using implants for retention or the support of dentures allows for a smaller and more comfortable base and less shifting of the prosthesis during use.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

How much do dental implants cost?
A dental implant with a crown costs between $5000 and $6500 for a single tooth. Many patients need preliminary procedures like tooth extractions and bone grafting prior to dental implant surgery, so your total cost may be higher. Some dental insurance plans will cover part of the cost of dental implants. We would be happy to look into whether your insurance carrier provides these benefits.
Can dental implants replace multiple teeth?
Dental implants can replace as many teeth as you need to replace. They can be used to replace one tooth at a time or provide support for a bridge or dentures to replace multiple teeth with a single prosthetic.
What’s the difference between a dental implant and a bridge?
A bridge replaces one or a few teeth in a row with a single prosthetic. The biggest difference is the point of support. A bridge is supported by crowns placed over the healthy teeth on either side of the gap. A dental implant is supported by the jaw bone itself. Dental implants are more secure than bridges and won’t damage healthy teeth.
Are dental implants painful?
The placement of dental implants does not hurt because local anesthesia is used to numb the area. If you feel anxious about the procedure, sedation options are available to help you relax. After the procedure, you may feel more comfortable with over the counter pain relievers, but not everyone needs them.
When and what can I eat after dental implant placement?
You can eat soft foods that you don’t have to chew on the day of your procedure and possibly the next day, depending on how you feel. Avoid hard or crunchy foods until your dentist gives you permission, usually not until at least 10-14 days after.
