What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implants is small titanium rod that your dentist places into your jaw bone to replace a missing tooth root. After the implant is placed, your dentist will cap it with a dental crown. Together, the implant and crown look and act like a natural tooth.

Implants & Your Oral Health

Dental implants can help with a number of oral health issues in patients with missing teeth. They can:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting surrounding teeth 
  • Help resolve jaw joint pain or bite problems caused by the adjacent teeth shifting into missing tooth space
  • Help a patient feel more confident in their smile
  • Aid chewing, speech and digestion
  • Preserve facial tissues
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more feel secure and comfortable

Uses for Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth, which impacts your overall oral health.

Without an implant, the teeth surrounding the gap may begin to shift out of place and cause misalignment issues. 

If a tooth is missing, the jaw bone around the area may also begin to deteriorate, resulting in facial collapse or negatively impacting your ability to eat and talk. 

If your jaw bone is not strong enough to support a dental implant, you may require a bone graft or sinus lift before it can be placed.
