Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are replacement artificial tooth roots designed to stabilize and secure your dentures, crowns, or other dental prostheses. In an in-office procedure at Dente, your dentist surgically fuses dental implants to your jawbone to replace your natural tooth roots. 

Dental implants can replace a few damaged or missing teeth or a whole set. Dental implants come in various sizes and shapes.

Dental implants are metal, screw-like posts or rods that are usually made from titanium. Since they’re surgically fused to your jawbone, the dental implants remain securely in place. 

Your dentist carefully places your dental prosthesis comfortably on top of your implants. You might need bone grafting in some circumstances.

 

Why would I need dental implants?

Dental implants could be an excellent solution for you if:

  • You want to improve your eating or speech
  • You have damaged or missing teeth
  • Your regular dentures become uncomfortable or keep falling out

Dental implants can also help prevent bone loss and preserve your facial bone structure.

 

How are dental implants placed?

Your dentist administers anesthesia before making an incision in your gums and drilling small holes in your jawbone. Your dentist places your dental implants in the holes before stitching up your incisions.

After the surgical placement of your dental implants, it can take around 3-6 months for your implants and jawbone to completely fuse together in a process called osseointegration.

When your jawbone has fully healed, you return to Dente and your dentist secures a supporting element (abutment) on top of each dental implant. Lastly, your dentist carefully attaches your dental prosthesis to the abutments.

 

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dente offers dental implants to enhance your dental health, improve speech, preserve your jawbone, and help prevent future bone loss.

Dental implants can help you regain a fully functional and natural-looking smile. The durable and effective materials don’t decay like your natural teeth.

Dente also provides sinus lift procedures when needed to add bone to your upper jaw in the area of your premolars and molars. To make room for the bone, your dentist has to lift or move your sinus membrane upward.

Dente offers ridge augmentation – a procedure to help re-create the natural contour of your jaw and gums.

At Dente, all surgical procedures are typically performed with the added benefit of plasma centrifuge to maximize healing and bone or implant integration. This usually involves using highly concentrated growth factors derived from your own blood and injected into the surgical site to prompt cell regeneration.
