What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants are a popular, effective and very successful long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming the new standard in tooth replacement.

What makes dental implants feel completely comfortable and secure? We use a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that, over time, actually fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw. This union forms a strong and durable anchor for your new teeth, meaning there’s no slippage or other movement (which can sometimes happen with dentures). There are also no problems eating with dental implants, no need to repair them regularly and no more worrying about smiling freely and openly.

Dental implants have three parts:

1. The implant: A medical grade titanium screw that serves as a root for your new teeth and permanently attaches to your jaw.
2. The abutment: A permanent, but removable by your Doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.
3. The crown(or prosthetic tooth): This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and good looks.

Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch of teeth, you may be a perfect candidate for the all-on-four treatment.

Very happy with Gentle Dental. Dr Joshua Smith makes you feel right at home and all your fears disappear.
