Dental Implants: The Components
An implant has two parts. The first part, a tiny titanium post, is inserted into the jawbone where it acts as a new tooth root and forms a strong, long-lasting bond with bone tissue. The second part of the implant replaces the crown of the tooth – the part you see in your mouth.
A single dental implant can secure one tooth or several teeth in the form of a bridge. A few implant posts are needed to anchor a full denture.
Implants are the only tooth replacement alternative that stops the jawbone loss that occurs when the chewing force of natural teeth is no longer present. Implant-supported teeth flesh out facial structure for a more youthful appearance, restore clear speech, and keep existing teeth from drifting out of position.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution. They boast a 95 to 98% success rate and may last a lifetime with proper care.
Mini Dental Implants
In addition to traditional dental implants, we offer Mini Dental Implants (MDI) to stabilize an ill-fitting denture or partial denture. The minimally invasive procedure to place these smaller implants can be performed in a single office visit. We’ll retrofit your existing denture or create a new one to comfortably and securely attach to your implants. Ask about MDIs at your consultation.
