What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is one of the most advanced methods available today for replacement of a single or multiple teeth. Implants are devices that have been manufactured to look like teeth that are then placed in your lower or upper jaw. Implants are usually made of materials, such as titanium, which are compatible with the human body. These implants look and feel just like your natural teeth, unlike dentures and other older solutions.

Parts of an Implant

Dental implants are made up of two primary components: the implant and the crown. The implant itself is the part that is placed into the bone. On top of the implant sits the crown–the part of the device that looks like a natural tooth. The crown is fabricated to match your existing teeth and look like it was there all along.

Are Dental Implants a Good Choice for You?

If you’re missing multiple teeth or even a single tooth and it clearly shows when you smile, you may be a good candidate for implants. If you use dentures and are not comfortable with the way they fit or appear, you can also consider implants. Your dental professional will go over the necessary qualifications and help you decide if dental implants are the best possible solutions for your problem.

Implant Maintenance

Dental implants are remarkably durable replacements for your natural teeth. They can withstand all the things that your original teeth withstood, but with the added benefit that since they are metal, they are not subject to decay. However, this doesn’t mean you don’t need to maintain them. Practicing proper oral hygiene like frequent brushing, flossing, and trips to the dentist are still necessary for proper implant maintenance. Bacteria that may form around the implant can still have an effect on the gum and tissues surrounding the dental implant, so it is important that you take appropriate measures to stop the growth of bacteria and plaque.
