What are dental implants?
Patients often work with our team to discuss if dental implants are right for them. Dental implants are restorations that can be utilized by patients for replacement of missing teeth. They can be used to replace one or more teeth, depending on how they are restored. Dental implants are titanium posts that a dentist will surgically place into the bone of the jaw, and then cover with a restoration such as a dental crown, a dental bridge, or a denture.
Benefits of dental implants
The primary benefit of a dental implant is the ability to restore the smile in a permanent manner. With proper care, patients will enjoy their dental implants for the rest of their life, as the implant becomes one with the jaw bone. Once this occurs, the implant has a strong foundation. Dental implants do require surgery, but this allows patients to enjoy a tooth replacement option for many years to come. Implants are natural-looking, durable, and easy to care for. They require minimal care when compared to the existing teeth in the smile.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
It is important for patients who are considering implants to ensure they are proper candidates before they move forward with surgery. Dr. David S. Frey will complete x-rays to determine if the patient has enough bone structure to make sure the surgical procedure is successful.
