Dental Implants

A dental implant is like a strong, artificial tooth root. It's put into your jawbone to replace a missing tooth.

Who needs a Dental Implant?

Single Tooth Replacement: When a person is missing a single tooth due to injury, decay, or congenital absence, a dental implant can replace that tooth without affecting neighboring teeth.

Multiple Teeth Replacement: Dental implants can be used to replace several missing teeth. Depending on the specific case, multiple single implants may be used, or a bridge supported by implants may be recommended.

Full Arch Replacement: In cases where a person has lost all or most of their teeth in one or both arches (upper or lower), dental implants can provide support for a full arch of teeth through implant-supported dentures or fixed implant bridges.

Denture Stabilization: Individuals who wear removable dentures (full or partial) and experience issues with stability or discomfort can benefit from dental implants to secure and stabilize their dentures in place.

Preserving Jawbone Health: Dental implants can help preserve the jawbone by preventing bone loss that often occurs when teeth are missing. This is particularly important because a healthy jawbone is necessary for the long-term success of dental implants

FAQs

Q: Can anyone get dental implants?
A: Dental implants are a great solution for many people, but not everyone is automatically eligible. To get dental implants, you need to have adequate jawbone density and healthy gums. If you have experienced significant bone loss or have certain medical conditions, your dentist may recommend bone grafting or suggest alternative tooth replacement options.

Q: How long do dental implants last?
A: Dental implants are known for their longevity. With proper care, they can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and diligent oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and routine cleanings, are crucial to maintain the health of your implants. Their durability and stability make them one of the most reliable and long-lasting options for tooth replacement, often surpassing the lifespan of other dental prosthetics like bridges or dentures.

Q: How long does the dental implant process take from start to finish?
A: The timeline for getting dental implants can vary depending on individual factors. In general, the process typically spans several months. It includes the initial consultation and evaluation, implant placement surgery, a healing period known as osseointegration (where the implant fuses with the bone), and the attachment of the abutment and artificial tooth. The entire process can take several months, but it ensures the implants integrate successfully and provide a durable and long-term solution for missing teeth.
