Do I need dental implants?
Dental implants replace missing teeth, making individuals with gaps in their smile good candidates for dental implants. Implants can also replace several teeth in a row or even an entire arch of teeth, meaning that whether you have one or many missing teeth, dental implants can help you. However, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. Patients should be in good dental and general health and have minimal bone atrophy at the implantation site. Those with significant bone loss may require a bone graft to rebuild the bone enough to hold the implant in place.
What can I expect during a procedure to place dental implants?
Your dentist will place the implant’s fixture, a screw-like post made out of titanium, into your jawbone through the socket of your missing tooth. Think of the implant’s fixture as your tooth’s replacement root. Your dentist first folds back the gum tissue to reach the bone, then inserts the fixture and replaces the gum tissue. During the healing process, the bone grows around the fixture, locking it into place naturally. After the implant's successful integration into the bone, your dentist will place a dental crown over the implant, replacing your missing tooth.
