Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is necessary when you need to replace a missing tooth. The actual implant is a small post that connects to an artificial tooth. Dental implants are usually made of titanium, as they need to be strong enough to support the artificial tooth and the surrounding gum tissue.

When a dental implant is placed, your dentist gives the jawbone time to heal and fuse to the implant. Once this has occurred, he secures the artificial tooth to your implant.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

If you’re interested in dental implants, your dentist Thousand Oaks can determine whether or not you’re qualified. You might be a good candidate for a dental implant procedure if:

  • You have one or more missing teeth
  • You have bite issues or oral pain caused by teeth that are shifting into empty oral cavities
  • You are seeking an alternative to dentures

You might also be a candidate for an implant if you have bacteria and gum disease that is caused by a missing tooth.

What’s the process of a dental implant procedure?

After a thorough oral health evaluation, your dentist schedules the implant procedure.

In some cases, you may need to have a bone grafting procedure first. This is where your dentist harvests bone from one area of your body and inserts it into your jaw. Sometimes this is needed before placement of the implants, especially if you don’t have enough bone to support the device.

If you have enough bone, your dentist surgically installs the implant. After this procedure, you’ll wait about four months, giving the bone time to fuse with the implant. Sometimes gum tissue grows over the implant, so your dentist may need to perform a procedure to uncover the implant before replacing your tooth.

Once your implant is successfully installed and fused to the bone, your dentist attaches a custom-made, artificial tooth to the implant.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Implants are important to the integrity of your jaw, gums, and teeth, as they prevent shifting teeth, grinding, and loss of tissue in your jaw.

A dental implant can also help you to restore more natural patterns when it comes to speech and chewing.

Finally, an implant is made to look and feel natural, so it won’t be noticeable and it will function just like a regular tooth.
