Dental implants, for many patients, are the next best thing to having natural teeth. When you lose your teeth due to tooth decay, a disease, or a traumatic injury, your self-esteem and smile can take a hit. Dental implants are strong, stable teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
A dental implant is a metal post, often made out of titanium, that a dentist surgically implants into your upper or lower jawbone. Essentially, it’s the root of your new tooth. Your mouth will need a few weeks to heal after the post is in place.
Once your mouth has fully recovered, Dr. Jin will mount your new replacement tooth on the post. The replacement tooth is called a crown. Since the dental implants fuse directly to your jawbone, they're strong and stable. They won't shift around uncomfortably in your mouth like some dentures.
These metal posts also help bridges, dentures, and crowns stay firmly fastened to your jaw.
In addition to looking, feeling, and functioning like your natural teeth, dental implants offer the following ten advantages:
If you're missing teeth, you might be the perfect candidate for dental implants. Your gums need to be healthy, and your jaw must be finished growing. That's why dental implants are a fantastic solution for adults, not children.
You may also be a good candidate for implants if you are ready to replace a bridge or partial dentures, or if you’re tired of having dentures that slip. Men or women looking for a more permanent, long-term solution to dental work may be good candidates for implants. If you’re missing teeth, Dr. Jin explains your options so you can decide whether implant treatment is the best solution for you.
