A dental implant is a common and effective tooth replacement option that can restore one or more missing or failing teeth.

Dental implants

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant can be described in three parts: the post, the abutment, and the crown. The dental implant post is made of medical-grade titanium and is the part that is surgically inserted into the jaw bone. The titanium is made to fuse with the bone over the course of several weeks, creating a secure foundation for the rest of the prosthesis. A single dental implant can be placed in as little as half an hour. Once the implant post has securely fused with the jaw bone, the custom-made crown and connecting abutment are placed.

The benefits of dental implants

Patients and oral surgeons alike love dental implants! Here’s why:

  • A dental implant can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth.
  • As a complete tooth replacement solution, the dental implant post acts as the new root, which stimulates bone growth to prevent bone loss in the jaw.
  • Crown is custom-made to blend in with your smile for a natural look.
  • Many patients are eligible for dental implants—even patients who were denied other tooth replacement solutions.
  • Dental implants are easy to care for and have the ability to last a lifetime.

Dental implant FAQ

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Chances are, if you are healthy enough to undergo a routine tooth extraction, you are healthy enough to receive a dental implant. Many patients can enjoy the benefits of dental implants, even if they were denied alternative tooth replacement options. Some patients should be advised that additional procedures, such as a bone graft, may be required as a part of their treatment to receive dental implants successfully.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Dental implants require basic care and maintenance. Just brush, floss, and visit your dentist regularly.

How long is the recovery period?

After a dental implant post has been placed, the recovery period begins. There will be several weeks of healing in the jaw while the dental implant post fuses with the jaw bone. On average, this process takes between 3 and 6 months, but your age, bone health, lifestyle, and more will play a role in how long your recovery period will be. To optimize healing and minimize the risk of complications, please be sure to follow all pre- and post-operative instructions that your oral surgeon provided to you.

How much do dental implants cost?

The final cost of your dental implant treatment will depend on factors such as number of implants, type of procedure, if other procedures (such as bone grafting) are necessary, and insurance coverage.

Are dental implants painful?

Some degree of post-operative discomfort is normal and to be expected following your surgical procedure. Anesthesia options will be discussed with you and selected during your consultation appointment to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during the procedure. Your oral surgeon will also discuss post-operative pain management and may prescribe medication. Please follow all pre- and post-operative instructions provided by your oral surgeon.
