What are dental implants?

Dr. Rekha M. Mahajan and her team describe dental implants as a long-term solution to missing teeth. The implant itself is a post-like device made of titanium and placed into the jaw’s bone. The implant’s abutment is the structure that lies above the gum line and is then restored with a crown, bridge, or denture. The type of restoration placed over the implant varies depending on which restorative option a patient has chosen. Below are a few ways implants are used:

Single-tooth implant – a single tooth implant is the most common way for patients to replace a single tooth in the smile. The implant is placed where a lost tooth once was and restored with a crown to complete the process.

Multiple teeth replacements – some patients may use dental implants for one or both sides of a dental bridge. The dental bridge is typically made to rest on adjacent teeth for support of false teeth in-between. If these adjacent teeth are not available, patients might want to ask the dentist about placing a dental implant as the foundation.

Mini dental implants – mini dental implants are smaller implants often used to offer a full-mouth restoration with a conservative denture that snaps into place with several implants along the arch.

Dental Implants

Dental Implant

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
