Dental Implants

An alternative to bridges, partials or complete dentures may be dental implants. Implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial teeth. They are comfortable and look like natural teeth.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial root made of metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replaced tooth in place.

Who can get dental implants?

If you are in good health, have healthy gums and enough bone in the jaw to hold an implant, dental implants might be right for you. If your jawbone has shrunk or if it has not developed normally, you may be able to have a bone graft to build up the bone. A bone graft is a way of adding new bone to your jawbone.

How dental implants are done?

  • Your dentist will carefully examine your mouth and take X-rays of your head, jaw and teeth to find out if dental implants are right for you
  • During the first stage of surgery, your dentist will put a dental implant into your jawbone beneath the gum tissue. The gum tissue is then stitched back into place. As the tissue heals, the implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gum
  • During the second stage of surgery and once the tissue is healed, your dentist will attach an abutment to the implant. An abutment is a post that connects the replacement tooth to the implant. In some cases, the first and second stage of implant surgery may be done in one single stage
  • An artificial tooth is made and your dentist attaches it to the abutment
  • When replacing several teeth or all of your teeth, a fixed bridge is anchored to your dental implants. A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth by spanning an area that has no teeth. The bridge is held firmly in place by dental implants on each side of the missing tooth or teeth

Caring for my dental implant(s)

Because dental implants are placed in the jawbone, artificial teeth attached to implants look and act much like natural teeth. Like natural teeth, implants need to be kept clean using a toothbrush and floss. Your dentist will show you the proper cleaning procedure for implants. Regular dental checkups are important so your dentist can make sure that your bite is right and that your implants are not loose.

What else should I know?

  • Checkups will be scheduled during the following year so your dentist can be sure your implants are working properly
  • You will need to take very good care of your implants
  • Implants can cost more than other kinds of replacement teeth. But in most cases this is a one-time cost, unlike other kinds of tooth replacement procedures
  • Although rare, possible complications due to dental implants include bleeding, infection, numbness or injury to nearby muscles or the sinus cavity
