Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are custom-made, prosthetic teeth that consist of a root and a crown. If you have one or more missing teeth, your DNTL dentist creates an individual implant to replace each missing tooth. As a result, you get all the benefits of having permanent replacement teeth that are strong and act just like your natural teeth.

Implant roots are made of titanium posts that integrate with your jawbone. This root provides the stability for a custom crown that fits securely over the top and acts as your tooth. The crown closely resembles the surrounding teeth so you’ll hardly notice a difference — if any — between your natural teeth and your new implants.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Since implants look, feel, and function most like your natural teeth, there are many advantages to choosing implants over removable dental work. These advantages include:

  • Improved smile aesthetics
  • Ease of speaking
  • Ease of chewing all your favorite foods
  • Comfortable and won’t slip out of place
  • Improved oral health
  • Ease of oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing
  • Long-lasting

Many people enjoy the convenience of implants over other dental work. You simply brush and floss your teeth as you normally would to keep your whole mouth healthy. You don’t have to worry about special adhesives as you would with removable dentures.

Dental implants are an investment in your long-term oral health and well-being.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

If you have one or more missing teeth that you need to replace, you may be a good candidate for implants. You should have maintained good oral health and be in good general health, as well. Additionally, your DNTL dentist carefully evaluates your jawbone to determine if it’s healthy enough to support your new implants.

The best candidates for dental implants are men and women who have healthy teeth and gums, free from gingivitis or periodontal disease, and an adequate jawbone. The team at DNTL works with you to prepare your mouth for implants to ensure their success and your satisfaction with your new teeth.

The caring, compassionate team at DNTL uses state-of-the-art implant technology and procedures to ensure you receive the highest standard of care.
