What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from biocompatible materials such as titanium or zirconia. They are surgically implanted into the jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants are a permanent solution that looks and functions just like natural teeth.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Your dentist will assess your oral health and discuss your treatment plan, including any necessary preparations such as bone grafting. During a surgical procedure, the implant post is placed into the jawbone, where it will integrate over a few months. Once the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment is attached to serve as a connector for the prosthetic tooth. The final step involves the placement of a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture onto the abutment to complete your smile.

Dental Implant Aftercare

After your dental implant procedure is complete, proper aftercare is essential for ensuring the longevity and success of your new teeth. You’ll need to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent complications. There are also dietary considerations you’ll need to follow, as some foods are not compatible with new implants.
