Answers to Your Questions About Dental Implants

dca-blog_dental-implant-man-with-picture

Today’s advanced dentistry offers the best dental implants to almost anyone who has one or more missing teeth. Unlike uncomfortable dentures or complicated bridges, implants are a natural-looking, permanent part of your mouth. If you’re ready to restore your beautiful, healthy smile, all you have to do is find a dental implant dentist in Warren, and let affordable dental implants give you back your confidence. Here are answers to some common questions about the process.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

An implant is a metal device that is surgically inserted into the jawbone to serve as an anchor or root for an artificial tooth. Implants can also support bridges or dentures.

How Do I Know If I’m an Implant Candidate?

Most healthy people who have lost teeth are good candidates. If you have serious medical problems such as cancer, uncontrolled diabetes, or severe gum disease, implants may not fuse to your bone properly. A dental implant dentist or oral surgeon can help determine if implants are right for you.

Can Bone Be Re-Grown to Support Implants?

Several techniques can be used to graft bone into extraction sockets, or regenerate lost bone structure. Placing implants may actually help to prevent further bone loss.

Who Places Dental Implants?

A specialist like a periodontist or oral surgeon usually places implants. Some general dentists may also have advanced training in surgical implants.

How Are Implants Different from Natural Teeth?

Implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. The way they attach to the jawbone is different. Implants also require different forms of maintenance and repair.

How Do I Maintain Dental Implants?

Good oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist and dental hygienist are essential for monitoring implants and the tissues surrounding them.
