What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace the entire tooth

Implants fill the space in your jawbone that once held your tooth roots. The bone is opened during a minor oral surgical procedure that takes place during your first implant appointment. Over the course of several months, the implants bond to the bone and offer a stable foundation for dental crowns (crowns are completely natural looking artificial teeth that are placed on top of the implant).

Implants don't slip or slide because they're attached to your jawbone. You also won't have to worry about a change in your biting power. Implants are firmly rooted in your mouth and allow you to chew foods normally.

Implants improve jawbone strength

Unseen changes begin in your jawbone after you've lost teeth. Without constant stimulation from the roots of your teeth, the bone begins to shrink and weaken. Changes in the jawbone can also cause your remaining teeth to shift, which may affect your bite, your appearance, and your ability to easily remove cavity-causing plaque from your teeth.

Dental implants keep your jawbone strong by exerting continual pressure on the bone. Thanks to implants, you won't have to worry about any of the unpleasant consequences that can occur after tooth loss.

Implant care is simple

Dental implants don't require any complicated oral hygiene routines. In fact, you can keep your implant healthy simply by brushing twice a day, flossing carefully around the base of your crown daily and visiting your dentist every six months.
