What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium post that naturally fuses together with the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth’s roots. Once the implant and jawbone become fully integrated this restore is permanent. From there, this metal post can support a simple dental crown (if you are replacing one tooth), a bridge or even a full set of dentures.
Dental implants may be right for you if:
- You are missing one or more permanent teeth
- You are in good health
- You aren’t dealing with untreated health problems (e.g. high blood pressure; diabetes)
- You have a healthy, strong immune system
- You’re a non-smoker
- You aren’t pregnant or planning to become pregnant during your treatment
- You are dedicated to maintaining good oral hygiene
Another reason people are turning to dental implants to replace missing teeth is because they don’t require unique or specialized care. Implants can be treated just like a real tooth, brushing and flossing them in the same way you do your natural teeth. It’s important that you are brushing twice a day and flossing daily to maintain good oral hygiene.
