Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants? 

Dental implants are metal screw-like posts usually made of titanium. They serve as artificial tooth roots that your dentist surgically places in your jawbone so they become permanent in your mouth. If you don’t have enough bone tissue where you need an implant, bone grafting might be done before your implant is placed.

Dental implants can stabilize and secure one crown or a set of dentures. In this way, implants can help replace a single tooth or a whole row of teeth. Your dentist gently and comfortably secures your dental prosthesis on top of your implant or implants. 

Who is eligible for dental implants?

You’re eligible for dental implants if you have good overall dental health and a fully grown jawbone. You also can’t have any health conditions that might interfere with bone healing.

Your dentist can help determine if dental implants are the right option.

Why would I choose dental implants?

You might decide to get dental implants:

  • If you have missing teeth
  • If your regular dentures are uncomfortable or they fall out 
  • If you want to prevent bone loss

Dentures on dental implants can also help you speak more normally since they won’t slip out of place.

How are dental implants placed?

Your dentist administers anesthesia and then makes an incision in your gum for each implant. Then they surgically place your titanium implants in your jawbone where your natural tooth root or roots were and stitch the incisions closed. 

After your implants are in place, it can take around three to six months for your implants and jawbone to fuse together successfully.

When your jawbone has fully healed, you return to East Brunswick Periodontics and Dental Implants, and an abutment, a special supporting element, is secured on top of each dental implant. For the final step, your dentist attaches your crown or dentures to the abutments and ensures you’re happy with your smile makeover.

What advantages do dental implants offer?

Dental implants can:

  • Preserve your jawbone
  • Improve your dental health
  • Improve your speech
  • Help prevent future bone loss

Dental implants provide all of these benefits and can help you to regain a fully functioning and natural-looking smile. In addition, dental implant materials are durable and don’t decay like your natural teeth.
