What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that hold your replacement teeth in place if you have missing teeth. Made of biocompatible titanium materials, dental implants serve the same function as your natural tooth roots. They provide a stable foundation for your dentures, crowns, or a fixed bridge.

How do dental implants work?

Your dentist surgically places dental implants into your jawbone. Once placed, the implants osseointegrate, or bond, to the surrounding bone. The bone and tissue heal around the implants, which secures them in place.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants allow your replacement teeth to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Your prosthetic teeth connect to these artificial tooth roots, so you can eat your favorite foods and speak without interference. Dently often recommends dental implants because they:

  • Look natural
  • Feel comfortable
  • Provide stability
  • Prevent gum disease
  • Last for 25 years or more*
  • Prevent surrounding teeth from shifting

One of the most important benefits of dental implants is that they prevent bone resorption. When you lose a natural tooth, the root eventually deteriorates. The bone in your jaw needs roots for stimulation. Without stimulation, the bone breaks down and absorbs back into your body.

Bone resorption increases your risk of shifting teeth and tooth loss. It also leads to facial sagging and premature aging. By placing an implant, your dentist can help stimulate your bone to prevent resorption.

What is the process like for getting dental implants?

The dental implant process is a long-term commitment that can restore your smile for a lifetime*. With a modern facility, Dently has the necessary technology and equipment to create an individualized dental implant plan for you.

Planning for dental implants involves a complete dental exam and digital X-rays. These tests help determine if you have enough bone in your jaw to support implants. If you don’t, your dentist may recommend a bone graft.

Your dentist performs dental implant surgery with anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Next, they create an access hole to place your implant. After suturing your incision, the healing process begins.

What happens after I get dental implants?

It takes about 6 to 12 weeks to heal from dental implant surgery. After your mouth heals, your dentist takes digital impressions of your teeth to create your custom-made replacement teeth. They connect these prosthetic teeth to your implants at your final appointment.
