Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jaw to replace one or more missing teeth. An implant is a strong, permanent and natural-looking tooth replacement option.
Dental implants are actually made up of two parts: the artificial tooth root (made of titanium and the porcelain crowns, bridges, or dentures that will be made specifically to fit and attach to the implant.
As a whole, dental implants provide patients with a strong, stable, and durable alternative to removable dental appliances.
Almost anyone who is missing a single tooth, multiple teeth or all teeth are candidates for dental implants. However, dental implants may not be right for you. To find out if they are, book a consultation with your dentist.
Dental implants are different from other tooth replacement options because they include an artificial tooth root that is actually implanted into the jaw. Once capped with a crown, they are functionally and aesthetically indistinguishable from natural teeth. In addition, because they are made of titanium, they are impervious to decay!
That means that they're a sturdy and long-term option for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants require no special care in addition to the normal care you take of your teeth. This means that as long as you maintain a thorough daily brushing and flossing routine, and visit your dentist twice yearly for cleanings and checkups, your dental implants will help keep you smiling.
