Introduction to Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Dental implants are now the generally preferred tooth replacement treatment over partial dentures and fixed bridges. Traditional treatments either rest on your gums, as with removable dentures, or rely upon adjacent teeth to serve as anchors for fixed bridges. Dental implants are placed into the jaw bone, offering a highly successful, long-term replacement option.

Transforming Your Smile Couldn’t Be Any Easier

 An implant is made of three equally important pieces: the titanium implant, the abutment, and the crown. In the first step of the procedure, the implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone. After placement, the titanium implant begins to fuse with the jaw bone. This creates a connection between jaw and implant very similar to that between jaw and a natural tooth. The next step is to fit the abutment over the part of the implant that is exposed above the gum line. Finally, the crown, the piece that looks like a natural tooth, is placed over the abutment.

Dental Implants Are Not Painful. A local anesthetic is administered before and during surgery to ensure the patient does not feel pain or discomfort throughout the procedure. Usually your doctor will prescribe post-operative pain medication to minimize any discomfort that may initially occur after the surgery. Patients can often return to work the next day. Your doctor will discuss your post-operative care plan with you prior to the procedure.
