What is a dental implant?

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant takes the place of a missing tooth, restoring function and aesthetics that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth, permanently.

The implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A dental crown is attached to the implant, becoming your new tooth. 

A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to bond with the biocompatible, titanium post.

the parts that make up a dental implant

There are 3 primary parts that make up a dental implant.

  1. TITANIUM SCREW
    This screw is the implant, even though the word “implant” is often used to describe all 3 components. 
    The implant goes into your jaw bone, below the gum line and cannot be seen.

  2. ABUTMENT
    The abutment is a connector that connects the implant to the tooth. It’s  attached to the implant above the gum line. Eventually, it will be covered by the crown.

  3. CROWN
    The crown is the “tooth” and attaches to the abutment, covering the abutment.

The first step is to make a FREE dental implant consultation. 

At the consultation we’ll take X-rays and do an exam. You’ll meet with Dr. Moradi who will explain what needs to be done and your options for treatment. 

After you’ve accepted treatment, you’ll have your pre op appointment where we scan, take impressions, and whatever is called for per your case.

You’ll be prescribed all your medications for the procedure at this visit.

The morning of your procedure you will take doctor prescribed pills to help relax you before you come into the office. We require you have a responsible ride to and from our office this day.

Depending on the type of procedure – a single implant? All-on-4®? – you will be given the proper sedation. The type of procedure also dictates how long you’ll be here. A single implant might last an hour and an All-on-4® might last a few hours. The procedure doesn’t take too long, but you’ll rest comfortably here to allow you time to wake up fully from sedation.

You’ll have a few post op visits so Dr. Moradi can make sure you’re healing properly.

During the healing period, a process known as osseointegration takes place. This is when the implant and your jawbone fuse together and is PIVOTAL for successful implants.  The healing period usually takes 4 to 6 months. 

While you’re healing, you will have ‘temporaries’ which are teeth that are nearly indistinguishable from what your ‘finals’ will look like.  The benefit of this is that you have ample time to test them out. Do you like the color? The shape? Is your bite okay? Let us know and that way you finals are exactly the way you want.

The benefits of dental implants

The benefits of dental implants are many and significant.

Below are a few of the most important.

Appearance

The first things people notice are eyes and smile. Withholding a smile gives off a negative impression and less than perfect teeth are also often unfairly judged. You can change both of these with dental implants.

If you’ve been without teeth for a while you’ll have noticed a change in the structure of your face. Maybe a little sunken? A little older? A weaker jawline? This is a result of a lack of tooth roots. A tooth root stimulates your bone encouraging healthy growth.

Dental implants replace missing teeth roots restoring facial structure and getting bone healthy again for a more youthful appearance.

health

The list of health benefits is long. Restoring your ability to chew is not least among them. If you’ve been suffering with painful teeth or no teeth at all, you’re well aware of how limited your food selection has become. Your body needs the many beneficial nutrients found in crunchy, chewy, crisp foods. Digestion is extremely important too. Chewing your food properly helps aid in good digestion. 

Dental implants aren’t a procedure just done to your mouth – they’re a procedure for your whole body.

confidence

Smile big and wide, laugh out loud with no concern about showing a missing tooth or unattractive teeth. No more passing on social engagements, selfies, family photos. You can finally stop hiding from behind your hand.

Has  less than perfect teeth kept you from getting a promotion or a date? When you don’t have to feel embarrassed about your smile, your confidence will soar.

With dental implants you’ll be noticed and remembered for your smile in the way that you want to be.

convenience

Dental implants are permanent. Unlike with dentures which, need to be removed daily to clean, implants remain in your mouth. Caring for them is just like caring for natural teeth: brush, floss and/or use a waterpik. 

Gone are the days of cavities and root canals.

You never have to worry about them slipping or sliding out of place at an inopportune moment. And no messy glues are needed.

No other tooth replacement option is more like real teeth than dental implants.
