Dental Implants

Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement, providing a foundation for replacement teeth – looking, feeling, and functioning like natural teeth. 

Implants posts are placed in the bone beneath the gum, where the teeth are missing to provide permanent support for crowns, bridges, partials, and dentures. They are lightweight, durable, biocompatible, and made from titanium, the most widely used material in implant dentistry. 

Dental Implants

  • Failure to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) can lead to bone loss. Teeth help stimulate and support the jaw bone, much like exercise helps stimulate and support muscle health. If you are missing teeth, the bone that once supported them is no longer stimulated. 
  • Your remaining teeth can shift after an extraction. Although your teeth are firmly attached to the jaw bone, they can shift and move over time for any number of reasons (gum recession, tooth decay, etc.). Tooth shifting is accelerated significantly when one or more teeth are missing. 
  • Difficulty chewing. We rely on our teeth for tearing and chewing our foods. Depending on the location of your missing tooth/teeth, you may experience difficulty eating some of your favorite everyday foods. 
  • Facial aesthetics and speech issues. Your teeth help support the shape and structure of your face. You’d be surprised how missing teeth can impact facial aesthetics. As the jaw bone resorbs, the face can begin to look sunken and aged. If you’ve ever seen someone with removable dentures when they take them out, you’ll have a sense of the effects of missing teeth on appearance. 
  • Speech Issues. It is amazing how your teeth play a role in speech. Missing teeth or even large gaps can impede your ability to pronounce certain sounds, cause slurring, whistling, or even spitting when speaking. 
  • Millions of people have experienced the loss of one or more teeth. Tooth decay, gum disease (periodontal disease), and injury are the leading causes of missing teeth. This can lead to several problems down the road. 

Fortunately, no one has to accept living with fewer teeth and having to adapt their diet
and smile to cope with it. Implants are extremely safe and durable, and they look and
function like the real thing.

 

Most patients report little to no discomfort with the placement of an implant!

There is little discomfort associated with a dental implant. Most patients report implants to involve less discomfort than a tooth extraction. Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure.

Frequently asked questions:

Q: Who is a candidate?

A: Dental implants can be placed in most adults. Adolescents may be eligible once their face structure has matured. Please ask Drs. Endicott and Khan to explain the benefits and risks to see if dental implants are right for you.

 

Q: Is implant placement uncomfortable?

A: No, dental implants are typically placed under local anesthesia. Most treatments can be completed in our office. Many patients tell us the placement of an implant is more comfortable than having a tooth extracted.

 

Q: How soon may I return to work after treatment?

A: You may return to work the next day unless otherwise instructed by your dentist. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any minor discomfort you may have.

 

Q: What if there is not enough bone or gum tissue for the dental implant?

A: A graft may be needed if your dentist determines there is not sufficient bone or gum tissue.
