Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a system for replacing missing teeth that closely mimics your natural tooth structures. They’re tiny rods embedded into your jawbone, where they fuse with your bone tissue as an artificial tooth root.

The fusing is called osseointegration. It’s possible because dental implants are made from biocompatible materials, which makes your body unable to recognize them as a foreign substance.

Once inserted and fused, your dental implants provide a sturdy foundation for a restoration, just like a natural tooth root. Your dentist can fit your implant with a crown if you’re looking to replace a single tooth. Community Smiles offers high tech e.max® crowns for their implants.

If you need to replace more than one tooth, your provider can fit your implant with a bridge. And if you want to replace an entire dental arch, your provider can use implants to hold a denture in place. 

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Replacing your teeth with dental implants has many benefits, like preventing your remaining teeth from shifting, distributing the force of your bite, and improving your ability to properly eat and speak. 

Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are connected directly to your jawbone, which makes them closer in structure to your natural teeth. Because of this, your dental implants feel more secure and comfortable and offer an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

And because they’re connected directly to your jawbone, dental implants provide the bone tissue with healthy stimulation. This keeps your jawbone healthy and prevents bone loss, unlike bridges and dentures, which use artificial teeth that rest on top of your gums.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Dental implants don’t require any special care, and you can treat them just like your natural teeth. If you brush twice a day, floss daily, and maintain regular checkups and cleanings with the team at Community Smiles, your implants will keep your smile healthy and beautiful for many years.
