Learn About Dental Implants

The first step towards effectively restoring your smile with dental implants is learning about them. Find out everything that you need to know about this effective tooth replacement option below.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots and are placed into your jawbone. Your bone then fuses with the implant, creating a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like your natural smile.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants provide a wide-range of benefits. In addition to replacing your missing teeth and restoring your smile, they also:

  • Preserve facial structure
  • Prevent jaw bone deterioration
  • Improve appearance
  • Improve speech
  • Improve comfort
  • Enhance eating
  • Boost self-esteem
  • Improve oral health
  • Eliminate inconvenience
  • Last a lifetime

Types of Dental Implants

There are two types of dental implants: single dental implants and hybrid denture. Which type of dental implant is used to restore your smile depends on your smile’s specific needs and requirements.

Single Dental Implants

Single dental implants are the perfect option to replace a single tooth that has been lost due to an accident, tooth decay, or periodontal disease. With single dental implants, your new tooth will resemble and work exactly like your natural teeth.

Hybrid Dentures

A hybrid denture is an innovative way to replace teeth if all of your top or bottom teeth are missing. It consists of placing dental implants in any available bone, thereby avoiding the need for bone grafting. Special abutments are then attached to the implants to enable temporary replacement teeth to be placed as your gum tissues heal and implants integrate with your bone. After about six months, your final teeth are placed and your smile is officially restored.
