Dental implants restore missing teeth with replacements that look and feel natural, and function similarly to your original teeth. You can brush, floss, and have regular cleanings at your dentist's office, the same way you care for natural teeth. Dental implants are an advanced solution, so it is most important to find an AAID credentialed dentist who has the specialized educational training and experience to perform your dental implant procedure. The following information is to help you understand the process and benefits of getting dental implants.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are cylindrical titanium posts used to replace the roots of teeth. The post is surgically placed into the jawbone. This provides a very strong and stable grounding for the new, man-made permanent replacement tooth. The new tooth is designed to ideally match and blend with your natural teeth. The post and tooth materials used are of the highest quality and are appropriate for use in the human body.

What are the Benefits of Having A Dental Implant?

There are many advantages of dental implants. Implants eliminate risk of a failed root canal, and prevent problems with dentures falling out, loosening, or clicking when you talk, laugh, or eat. Implants also preserve the natural shape of your face (preventing the sagging and sunken look that typically occurs without teeth). Implants stimulate growth, preventing loss of jawbone material, which allows you to eat and enjoy the foods you like.

What is the Process for Getting a Dental Implant?

The post implant is positioned in the jawbone, and then is left to fuse (osseointegrate) with your jawbone over the following weeks or months, as you continue your everyday activities. After integration is complete, a small post (an abutment) is applied to secure the new tooth to the dental implant. Finally, your replacement tooth (crown) is put in place. (It's important that your dentist is well-experienced in this procedure.)
