Dental implants, for many patients, are the next best thing to having natural teeth. When you lose your teeth as a result of a traumatic injury, decay, or an illness, it can hurt your self-esteem. This is where dental implants can help. Dental implants feel and function like natural teeth. They're durable and stable, and function almost the same as natural teeth.
A dental implant is a metal post that a dentist implants into your jawbone beneath your gums. Essentially, it’s the root of your new tooth. Once the post is in place and your mouth fully heals, a process that typically takes a few weeks, your dentist mounts the new replacement tooth (crown) on the post permanently. The implants fuse to your jawbone, which makes them incredibly steady and secure.
These posts also help other dental work, like bridges and dentures, stay solidly attached to your jaw.
Beyond feeling, functioning, and looking like natural teeth, dental implants provide the following benefits:
Whether you're missing one tooth or multiple teeth, you could be a great dental implant candidate. Your jaw must be finished growing, and your gums must be healthy. Dental implants are an excellent solution for adults, not children.
You may also be a good candidate for implants if you're irritated by dentures that slip, or if it's time to replace a bridge or partial dentures. Patients who desire a more durable, long-term answer to dental work problems may be suitable candidates for implants.
