Find out more about dental implants:

  1. Dental implants are small metal screws or posts that are placed into the jawbone so that they can take over the responsibility of tooth roots. This is particularly important to those dealing with tooth loss, as the roots of a tooth are meant to preserve the health and strength of the jawbone. Without tooth roots, the jawbone will deteriorate. An implant is the only tooth replacement that can actually prevent bone loss.
  2. Implants are also extremely resilient since they are taking over for your missing tooth or teeth. They are made from titanium, which is a strong metal that is also biocompatible, meaning that it naturally fuses together with the jawbone. Again, no other restoration naturally fuses together with bone or tissue. Because of this, implants are designed to last several decades and even the rest of your life, if you maintain good oral hygiene.
  3. It’s important to note that getting implants can take several months and even up to one year or more to complete. There is a healing period after the implant is placed. Healthy, non-smoking adults are the best candidates for implants. You should have a healthy cavity and gum disease-free smile. While it might seem like quite the process we promise it’s all worth it when you have a new tooth that can last a lifetime with proper care.
