At our family dentistry office, we know people are living longer than ever, and while regular brushing, flossing, and checkups allow many of us to maintain our natural smiles for a lifetime, sometimes our teeth just can't keep up. If you've lost a tooth (or a few teeth) due to injury or disease, dental implants can rejuvenate both your smile and your oral health.
An implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. Tooth replacements are then fixed to the post. The tooth/teeth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.
Our dental clinic suggest that ideal candidates for dental implants are a non-smokers who have good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease.
