Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

An implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that bonds with your bone, providing your dentures with more stability and holding them in place. An abutment is a connector placed on top of the dental implant that connects it to the teeth.

One of our qualified Wellness dentists surgically places this sophisticated technology. The dental implant bonds with your bone over time in a process called osseointegration, to create a sturdy base for your replacement teeth.

Dental implants come in many shapes and sizes to accommodate all patients. A dental prosthesis, such as a dental crown, a bridge, or dentures, is placed on top of an implant, just as your teeth would sit on top of your natural tooth roots.

Dental implants can be used to support an individual replacement tooth or crown, a denture containing multiple teeth, or a bridge.

How do I know if I’m eligible for dental implants?

The main reasons we might recommend dental implants are that your regular dentures keep falling out or you have missing teeth and want to improve your speech. Millions of Americans suffer tooth loss for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Injury to the teeth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Age-related tooth decay

You may be eligible for dental implant surgery if you:

  • Have healthy oral tissues
  • Have sufficient jawbone density
  • Have been unsuccessful with regular dentures
  • Don’t have any health conditions that can impact bone healing

If you have missing teeth, you can experience bone loss, and over time, this can even change the shape of your face.

When you get dental implants, you significantly reduce your risk of further bone loss, making it a worthwhile preventive measure.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

The benefits of dental implants are numerous. As well as replicating your natural tooth roots and stabilizing your dentures so that they remain in place, implants also help to preserve your jawbone.

New bone forms around the dental implant, which enables bonding, so you can rest assured they won’t slip, make noise, or cause any bone damage.

The materials used are top-quality and don’t deteriorate or decay like your natural teeth.

Dental implants are strong mechanical tooth roots that enable you to eat a normal, balanced diet. Other benefits include:

  • Easier eating
  • Improved speech
  • Long-lasting results
  • Improved oral health
  • Improved appearance
