What are dental implants?

The short answer is that dental implants are a devise placed in the jaw to replace the root of a natural tooth. The advantages of dental implant treatment are numerous. Many people do not realize that the implant maintains the jaw bone after a tooth (or teeth) have been removed and dental implants can be used to support a single crown or used as an anchor to support more than one tooth… in some situations four to six implants can be used to support a full arch of teeth!

Why should someone consider dental implants?

Although no procedure in dentistry (or medicine) is 100% successful, dental implants allow for the longest lasting and most predictable tooth replacement we have in dentistry. It is statistically the best use of money to replace a tooth (over the long term).

Are implants right for everyone? What if I am older or have had a history of gums problems and bone loss?

Dental implants are a great solution for the majority of patients, they have been designed over the years to be the most predictable tooth replacement solution even if you have had a long history of gum infections, bone loss and tooth infections. To be sure a full evaluation with review of your medical and dental history as well as an evaluation of your current bite and dental conditions as well as an evaluation of the bone with a specialized three dimensional image (known as a cone beam CT scan) needs to be completed.
