Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants restore your missing teeth and improve your jaw structure. They’re titanium cylinders surgically placed into your jawbone beneath your gums, where your tooth is missing.

Dental implants replace the root of your missing tooth, supporting single crowns, bridges, and dentures. This innovative technology allows your replacement tooth to look, feel, and function as your natural tooth would.

How long do dental implants last?

According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), dental implants have a long-term success rate of 97% — but this success relies on an assortment of factors.

Although you don’t have to worry about issues like tooth decay, taking care of your gums is crucial in maintaining success with your implants and shouldn’t be taken lightly.

With good oral hygiene habits at home, like regular brushing and flossing, and consistent professional teeth cleanings, dental implants are easy to maintain and could last a lifetime.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants are considered the gold standard for teeth replacement. Not only do dental implants improve your appearance and your confidence, but they also allow you to eat the foods you like without worrying about the consequences on your teeth.  

Because your implants are made of titanium, they provide stability to your jawbone without damaging other teeth, and tooth decay won't occur. Other options, such as dentures or bridges, can lead to bone deterioration and may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking, and other activities of everyday life.

While other teeth-replacement options can last only a few years to a decade, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Are dental implants right for me?

Almost anyone missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth is a candidate for dental implants — the only exception is growing children. Even if you suffer from bone loss due to gum disease or have pre-existing medical conditions, there are procedures dentists can perform to place implants.
