What Are Dental Implants?

Think of dental implants as titanium anchors that form the base for a long-lasting tooth replacement. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is surgically placed in your jawbone where a natural tooth used to be. Titanium is a biocompatible material that fuses with the bone to form a permanent bond.

A single dental implant can support a crown to replace one tooth. Multiple dental implants can support a bridge or dentures. 

Benefits of Dental Implants

There are many reasons why dental implants are highly recommended by dentists: 

  • Can last a lifetime. Once a dental implant fuses with the jawbone it can stay solidly in place for the rest of your life. 
  • Natural appearance. Because it attaches to your jaw like a natural tooth, a dental implant looks very realistic. 
  • Natural function. A dental implant functions like a natural healthy tooth would, providing equal bite strength. 
  • Preserve jawbone structure. Dental implants preserve the jawbone and other support structures for your teeth that would deteriorate over time in the absence of a tooth.

Are You a Good Candidate for Implants?

To be an ideal candidate for dental implants, you must have one or more teeth that are too decayed or damaged to be saved. You also need to have sufficient bone structure in your jaw to support an implant. It is best if the teeth being replaced have not been missing for long. However, even if your jawbone has weakened and deteriorated some, you can still be eligible for implants after a bone graft procedure.
