Dental Implants Q & A

Village Family Dental

What do dental implants do?

Dental implants might be the next best thing to having natural teeth. You might lose teeth due to:

  • Tooth decay
  • Disease
  • A traumatic injury

 

Tooth loss causes your self-esteem and smile to take a hit. Strong, durable, and aesthetically attractive dental implants help restore confidence that comes with having natural teeth.

Dental implants are metal posts that dentists implant into your jawbone beneath your gums. These screw-like posts are now the roots of new teeth. Once a post is in place and your mouth fully heals, a process that typically takes a few weeks, your dentist mounts a replacement tooth onto the post permanently.

Since dental implants fuse directly to your jawbone, they're strong and stable. They won't shift around uncomfortably in your mouth like some dentures. These screwlike metal posts help firmly attach:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures

 

Due to dental implants, your new teeth look and feel just like the real thing.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

In addition to looking, feeling, and functioning like natural teeth, dental implants:

  • Are a permanent, cost-effective solution to missing teeth
  • Maintain your natural face shape and restore your smile
  • Preserve a healthy jawbone
  • Keep surrounding natural teeth healthy
  • Improve speech
  • Don't shift around in your mouth
  • Enhance chewing
  • Aren't vulnerable to cavities

 

Dental implants are a time-tested, reliable solution for missing and decayed teeth.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

If you’re missing a single tooth or a couple of teeth, you could be an excellent candidate for dental implants. Your gums must be healthy, and your jaw has to be finished growing. Dental implants are not appropriate for kids but work exceptionally well for adults.

If you're irritated by dentures that slip, must replace a bridge or partial dentures, or are looking for a permanent solution to dental work, dental implants could be for you.
