Understanding Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are advanced solutions for replacing missing teeth, consisting of a titanium post surgically placed into the jawbone, a connecting abutment, and a custom crown that looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

The titanium post acts as a root for the crown, integrating with the jawbone over several months in a process called osseointegration. This foundation provides stability and strength, unparalleled by other tooth replacement options.


Dental Implant Restorations

Dental Crown

A single dental crown mounted on an implant is an excellent solution for replacing one missing tooth. It is designed to blend seamlessly with your other teeth, restoring functionality and aesthetics.

Dental Bridge

An implant-supported bridge is ideal for filling a gap caused by multiple missing teeth. Anchored by implants, it offers a permanent, stable solution that helps maintain facial structure and prevent bone loss.

Implant-Supported Denture

For those missing several or all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures provide a secure alternative to traditional dentures, enhancing comfort, function, and confidence without the need for adhesives.



The Benefits of Dental Implants

Durability and Longevity

Implants are designed to last many years, often a lifetime, making them a cost-effective, long-term solution for tooth replacement.


Improved Oral Health

Dental implants do not require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.

Exploring Types of Dental Implants


Endosteal Implants

These are the most common type of implants, directly placed into the jawbone and serving as an artificial root to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.


Single-Tooth Implant

Perfect for individuals missing a single tooth. These implants are inserted into the jawbone and topped with a crown, providing a solution that looks and feels natural.


Mini Dental Implant (MDI)

Mini dental implants are smaller and less invasive, ideal for stabilizing lower dentures and for patients with insufficient bone density.


Subperiosteal Implants

These implants sit on top of the jawbone but under the gum. They are used when the jawbone is not thick enough to support endosteal implants.


Zygomatic Implants

Less common and more complex, these are implanted in the cheekbone when there is insufficient bone in the jaw.



FAQs About Dental Implants


Are dental implants safe?

Yes, dental implants are one of the safest and most well-established treatments available. They are widely regarded as the best solution for replacing missing teeth.


How long do dental implants last?

With good oral hygiene and regular dental visits, implants can last a lifetime. They are a permanent solution designed to provide long-term value.


Is the dental implant procedure painful?

Most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during the procedure. We use effective local anesthesia and offer sedation options for a comfortable experience.


How much do dental implants cost?

Costs vary based on the number and type of implants needed. We provide a clear breakdown during your consultation and help with financing options.


Does insurance cover dental implants?

Coverage varies by provider. Our office will assist you in navigating your insurance benefits and exploring all available payment options.
