Dental Implants

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into your jaw bone to support a tooth replacement. Together, the implant and tooth replacement look and act like a natural tooth.

Uses For Dental Implants

Replacing missing teeth can be crucial to preserving your long-term oral health.

If you're missing one or more teeth, dental implants can help address a number of oral health issues, including:

  • Prevent surrounding teeth from shifting
  • Resolve jaw joint pain or bite issue 
  • Improve chewing, speech and digestion
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues
  • Support a tooth replacement (crowns, bridges or dentures)

Placing a Dental Implant

A dental implant is made up of two pieces: a titanium rod that is placed into the jaw bone and an abutment that screws into the rod. 

Your dentist will start the procedure by placing the titanium rod into your jaw bone beneath the gum tissue and then stitching the gum tissue back into place. As the tissue heals over time, the implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gum.

Once your gum tissue has fully healed, your dentist will complete the process by attaching the abutment to the rod, and then attaching a tooth replacement to the abutment. 

Together, the dental implant and tooth replacement create the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
