Why are implants important? Because even though he's missing an eyebrow, the first thing you notice is his smile!

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that serve to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. 

 

Implants are titanium alloy posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They serve various purposes, such as replacing missing teeth, supporting partial dentures, or anchoring complete all-on-4 implants. Acting like artificial tooth roots, these implants are crucial for attaching crowns (artificial tooth) when replacing single teeth. Dental implants help maintain bone density, preventing bone loss, and offer excellent long-term stability, functionality, and appearance.

 

Unlike other tooth replacement options, such as dental bridges, dental implants require minimal or no changes to the surrounding teeth. They provide more versatility and feel more like natural teeth compared to dental bridges or dentures.

 

Key Benefits of Dental Implants:

 

• Preserve Bone Density: Help prevent bone loss and keep your jawbone healthy.

• Natural Feel and Look: Look and feel like natural teeth.

• Long-Term Solution: Offer excellent stability and functionality over time.

• Minimal Impact on Adjacent Teeth: Do not require altering nearby teeth, unlike dental bridges.

 

Why Choose Dental Implants Over Other Options?

Dental implants are unique because they bond with your jawbone, providing unmatched stability. Unlike dental bridges or dentures, implants don’t affect the surrounding teeth and offer a permanent, natural-feeling solution to tooth loss. If you’re looking for a tooth replacement option that ensures long-term oral health and a confident smile, dental implants are the best choice.

Who Might Need Dental Implants?

Dental implants are great for many dental problems. They are commonly used to replace missing teeth but can also help with tooth decay and gum disease. If you don’t like how your dentures or bridge fit or look, dental implants might be a good option for you. They offer a more comfortable and natural-looking alternative, helping improve both your dental health and your smile.

  • You have missing teeth or gaps in your teeth.

  • You are experiencing discomfort or pain when eating.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

Are dental implants worth it?

Many patients ask if dental implants are worth the investment. Our answer is a resounding yes. Missing teeth not only affect your smile and eating ability but can also lead to bone loss in the jaw and other issues. Unlike dentures or dental bridges, dental implants stabilize bone levels and prevent further problems.

 

When comparing dental implants to crowns, bridges, or traditional dentures, implants are the superior choice. They feel more natural, fit better, and last longer. We highly recommend dental implants for those who are suitable candidates, as our patients report the highest satisfaction with this method.

 

Dental implants provide unmatched confidence and peace of mind, especially for those who have used dentures before. Many of our patients enjoy eating whatever they like for the first time in years and participating in social activities without worrying about unstable dentures.

Are dental implants painful?

The most uncomfortable part of the dental implant process is typically the extraction of any teeth that the implants will replace. However, with the use of anesthesia and dental sedation, you will experience little to no pain during the procedure. Recovery from an extraction usually takes just a few days.

 

Any pain experienced after the procedure should be manageable with over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen. Our team ensures that you are comfortable and well-informed throughout the entire process, making your journey to a restored smile as smooth as possible.

Are there any aftercare instructions for dental implants?

Immediately after dental implant placement, it’s crucial to avoid disturbing the implant site. Refrain from chewing near the implant and practice very careful cleaning for several weeks to a month after placement. The dental implant requires several months to fuse with the jawbone, so minimizing disturbances during this period is essential. If you have a temporary denture, ensure it does not rub against the surgical site.

 

After the implantation, and any required extraction, you may experience typical discomforts associated with oral surgery. These can include swelling, pain at the site, and minor bleeding. Below are specific recommendations for the first two weeks after the procedure to ensure proper healing and recovery.

 

Pain Management

Ibuprofen is highly recommended after surgery as it reduces pain and swelling unless you have been advised by your physician against it. We can always discuss and prescribe other options..

 

Oral Hygiene

Gentle brushing is important to keep the recovering area clean and to avoid irritation from overly aggressive brushing. Warm saltwater rinses can also help keep the area clean and reduce pain and swelling.

 

Minor Bleeding

It’s common to have a small amount of blood in your saliva for a day or two after oral surgeries. Gently biting on a gauze pad for 30 minutes can help manage this. If bleeding continues for more than a few days, contact our office.

 

Swelling

In addition to using ibuprofen and saltwater rinses, periodically applying an ice pack to the cheek near the affected area can help reduce swelling.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. The implant post fuses with your jawbone and typically doesn’t require replacement or further intervention unless rare complications arise. The dental crown, or the artificial tooth attached to the implant, generally lasts between 10 and 30 years. Proper care, including twice-daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups, can significantly extend the lifespan of your crown.

 

Dental implants are a safe and effective restoration option. However, there is a small chance that the implant may fail to integrate with the jawbone shortly after implantation and need to be removed. Certain medical conditions can increase the risk of implant failure. Additionally, as with any surgery, there are potential risks of surgical complications when placing a dental implant.

 

We provide all our patients with thorough post-op instructions and a maintenance care contract. This contract serves as a warranty on the implant, ensuring that as long as the care guidelines are followed, your implant remains covered.
