How Do Dental Implants Work?

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.

We were in an emergent situation after a playground accident/trauma and within 10 mins of calling and upon arrival, we were greeted, evaluated, and treated immediately on our first visit.
