Dental Implants Q & A

What is a dental implant?

When you need to replace missing teeth, dental implants provide outstanding support for your new teeth, allowing you to eat and smile with confidence. 

In a painless surgical procedure, we insert the implant’s foundation into your jaw, essentially replacing your original tooth root and creating a strong dental implant that securely holds individual teeth, bridges, and dentures.

What benefits will I gain from using dental implants?

The most important benefit for patients is that dental implants restore their beautiful smile and improve their appearance by replacing missing teeth. What patients don’t realize is that dental implants deliver exceptional benefits beyond cosmetic changes, such as:

Providing a long-lasting and secure anchor

Your jawbone grows around, and bonds with, the implant’s foundation. As a result, implants can feel as strong as your natural teeth, and you regain full dental function, so you can chew and bite without concern.

Preserving tooth alignment

When you’re missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth gradually move toward the empty space, shifting their position and becoming misaligned. This change disrupts your bite, which causes uneven stress on your teeth and an increased risk for tooth damage and decay.

Maintaining jaw strength

Throughout life, your jawbone stays strong and healthy by continuously discarding old bone and replacing it with new bone. But new bone only regenerates with stimulation from the teeth and their roots. 

When you lose a tooth, your jawbone starts to deteriorate and lose density. Since dental implants serve as replacement roots, the implants trigger bone growth that’s essential for strong jaws.

Protecting your appearance

As bone loss weakens your jaw, the overall bony structure of your face is affected. Without dental implants to maintain jaw strength, you can develop sunken cheeks. In severe cases, loss of bone from your jaw makes the area in your lower face collapse.
