What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are advanced tooth replacement options designed to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. These implants consist of three main components: the implant itself, an abutment, and a prosthetic crown. The implant, typically made of titanium, is surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation for the artificial tooth.

Types of Dental Implants

Endosteal Implants

These are the most common types of dental implants, surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. They offer strong support and are suitable for most candidates.

Subperiosteal Implants

Placed on or above the jawbone, beneath the gum tissue, these implants are recommended for patients with insufficient natural bone height.

All-on-4 Implants

This innovative approach replaces an entire arch of teeth with just four strategically placed implants, offering a faster and cost-effective solution.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dr. Dean recommends dental implants because of their various advantages, including:

  • Natural Appearance: Dental implants blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a realistic and aesthetically pleasing smile.
  • Enhanced Functionality: Unlike dentures, implants restore full biting and chewing functionality, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.
  • Durability: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a long-term investment in your oral health.
  • Preservation of Jawbone: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental implants painful?

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort. Post-surgery, any pain is usually manageable with prescribed medications.

How long does the implant process take?

The timeline varies but can span several months, including healing and integration periods. The precise duration depends on individual factors.

Can anyone get dental implants?

While most individuals can, factors like overall health, jawbone density, and lifestyle choices influence candidacy.

How do dental implants compare to traditional dentures?

Dental implants offer several advantages over traditional dentures. Unlike dentures that may slip or cause discomfort, implants are securely anchored in the jawbone, providing stability and preventing issues like speech impediments. Implants also promote better oral health by preserving jawbone density, a benefit not achieved by traditional dentures.
