Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Many adults find that having dental implants is almost like having natural teeth. When you lose your teeth due to tooth decay, a disease, or a traumatic injury, your self-esteem and smile can take a hit. This is where dental implants can help. Dental implants feel and function like natural teeth. They're durable and stable, and function almost the same as natural teeth.

A dental implant is a metal post, often made out of titanium, that a dentist surgically implants into your upper or lower jawbone. A dental implant is like an artificial tooth root. Once the post is in place and your mouth fully heals, a process that usually takes a few weeks, your dentist mounts the new replacement tooth (crown) on the post permanently. Since the 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 metal posts also help bridges, dentures, and crowns stay solidly affixed to your jaw.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

In addition to performing, looking, and feeling like your natural teeth, dental implants offer the following benefits:

  • Are permanent and can last a lifetime
  • Cost-effective way to replace missing teeth
  • Help retain your natural face shape and smile
  • Preserve your healthy jawbone
  • Help prevent decay of surrounding natural teeth
  • Help you talk casually and without worry
  • Don't fall out of your mouth
  • Are sturdy enough for chewing all types of foods
  • Aren't vulnerable to cavities with an implanted crown
  • Offer a time-tested, predictable result for tooth repair

Rockwell Dentistry is uniquely suited for any dental implant service you may need.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Whether you're missing one tooth or multiple teeth, you may be an excellent dental implant candidate. Good candidates have healthy gums, and their jaws are finished growing. Dental implants are not for children but are an excellent solution for adults.

You might also be a perfect candidate for implants if you're fed up with uncomfortable dentures, or it's time to replace a bridge or partial dentures. Men or women looking for a more permanent, long-term solution to dental work may be good candidates for implants. Your dentist discusses all your options and answers your questions during your consultation.
