How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants replace missing teeth with new artificial versions. Combining a sturdy foundation made from a slender titanium screw called a post with an elegant porcelain crown, dental implants can mimic the function and appearance of healthy natural teeth, giving you a fresh start on dental wellness and a bright new smile that you’ll be proud to share. We can also use implants to support a dental bridge — a row of crowns that have been fused together — for a stronger, more durable alternative to traditional bridges.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the best option for replacing missing or heavily damaged teeth. In addition to the fact that they can completely restore your appearance and give you a healthy, natural-looking smile again, implants can also give you back a greater degree of function than other options like dentures. With implants, you’ll never have to worry about your teeth falling out because they’re literally attached to your jawbone. Plus, implants can last a lifetime with proper care, and the crowns on top need only be replaced every decade or so.
How Long Does It Take to Get Dental Implants?
The dental implants process takes roughly six months from start to finish. Because implants are essentially a permanent solution to your missing teeth, we have to make sure that your mouth is fully prepared — which may include a bone graft to build up your jawbone to the point where it is ready to receive implants. Once we place the implants, you’ll also need several months for them to integrate with your jaw before we can add the crowns on top.
