What are dental implants made from and how are they placed?
Typically made from titanium, a biocompatible material that fuses with the jawbone, dental implants can provide a secure foundation for replacement teeth, which look and feel just like natural teeth.
The placement process involves multiple stages and begins with a thorough examination and consultation to determine your candidacy for the procedure. If you’re deemed to be a viable candidate and would like to move ahead, we’ll schedule a day to insert the titanium post during an in-office procedure. The post will be left to heal for a series of months, during which time it will fuse with the surrounding bone to form a secure anchor for your replacement tooth. After that process is complete, we’ll attach an abutment to the implant, which is the piece that will connect the implant and the prosthetic tooth. The final step is placing your custom-made replacement tooth on top of the abutment.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer a host of benefits over traditional tooth replacement options. They provide superior stability, are more comfortable than dentures, and look and feel just like natural teeth. In addition, dental implants help preserve the health of your jawbone by stimulating it to produce new bone cells. This helps prevent further bone loss associated with missing teeth.
Who is a suitable candidate for dental implants?
The ideal candidate will have adequate jawbone tissue and healthy gum tissue, as well as good overall health. You may not be considered a good candidate if you have chronic diseases such as diabetes or significant bone loss due to periodontal disease.
