What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements. They are typically made of titanium and are surgically implanted into the jawbone. The implants fuse to the bone over time, making them a permanent replacement tooth.
What are the main reasons people get dental implants?
Dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement option because they:
- Look and feel like natural teeth
- Are a long-term solution
- Are secure and stable
- Can support your facial structures
- Prevent bone loss
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
You may be a candidate for dental implants if you are missing one or more teeth and are committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
How long does dental implant treatment take?
Dental implants require several stages of treatment, usually over a period of a few months.
Will I need one implant for each missing tooth?
No. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone. The implant is a metal post that acts as an anchor for the dental restoration.
How many dental implants will I need to replace all of my teeth?
The number of dental implants you will need depends on the number and type of teeth you’re replacing and the condition of your jawbone.
