Dental implants are tooth roots that provide a stable base for one or more replacement teeth. At Charles Street Dental, They are commonly used to replace missing teeth but may also be used to secure partial dentures. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is both biocompatible and durable. The implant is placed in the jawbone, fusing with the existing bone and tissue through osseointegration. This creates a stable foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Your dentist can help you decide which type of dental implant is right for you. If you are missing more than one tooth, dental implants can be used to replace all of them. If you have healthy teeth next to your missing teeth, your dental implants can be strategically placed so that these teeth do not need to be altered during the procedure.

The Dental Implant Procedure

A dental implant procedure spans multiple appointments. During the first phase of your dental implant procedure, your oral surgeon will place your dental implant post into your jaw. A post is a small metal cylinder that serves as the root of your dental implant. After it is placed, your gums will be stitched up. Your oral surgeon will provide a prescription for pain medication and antibiotics if needed. At the next visit, your dentist will attach a post to the implant. Finally, your dentist will attach the crown to the post at your final visit.

The Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular option for replacing missing or failing teeth for several reasons. Not only will dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, but they will function like them too. Dental implants are tooth root replacements that are surgically anchored into the jawbone. Dental implants are independent prosthetics, unlike traditional tooth replacement options, such as dental bridges. This means that they will not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Dental implants are permanent solutions, unlike dentures. Because dental implants are permanently fixed in your mouth, so you don’t have to worry about them falling out over time. This also means you won’t need to adjust your oral hygiene routine, like cleaning around and under removable dentures. They also help to prevent jawbone deterioration, which occurs when missing teeth are not replaced.

Dental implants can last 20 years or even longer with good oral hygiene. To learn more about the perks of dental implants, visit Charles Street Dental at 121 Charles St S Boston, MA, or call 617-226-2822.
