Implant dentistry involves an artificial root being anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. The implant may be made from several different types of materials, usually metallic and bone-like ceramic materials. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. There are different invisalign provider that you can also check out and thereafter choose the implants accordingly. 

I have a history of gum disease. Will this affect my ability to get dental implants?

Most patients who receive dental implants are those who have a similar history of gum disease. In many cases, the dental implant is anchored into the jawbone, so the gums are not needed for support.

Is age an issue when considering dental implants?

Age is generally not a deterrent to implant dentistry. As long as the patient is in good health, there is not an age limit to having dental implants placed. For younger patients, such as teens, it is best to wait until growth has been completed before considering implant dentistry.

How long does implant dentistry take?

Quality implant dentistry may take up to a year to complete. It may take several months to ensure the screws and posts are completely healed before we fit the replacement teeth.

What is the success rate of dental implants?

Generally, the success rate of dental implants depends on the tooth’s location in the mouth. For teeth placed in the front lower jaw, the success rate is roughly 95 percent. For teeth placed along the side and rear of the upper jaw, the success rate is roughly 85 percent.

What benefits does implant dentistry offer over conventional dental treatment?

Implant dentistry offers increased bone-anchored support. Although a bridge may be sufficient to replace a single tooth when you need to replace more than one tooth, support is decreased and chewing efficiency can be compromised. Dental implants restore root support and increase chewing efficiency. Implant dentistry also offers the patient a more effective method of maintaining healthy teeth.

How many dental implants will I need?

The number of dental implants varies from patient to patient. In most cases, you will end up replacing each tooth with one implant. However, teeth vary in size and each mouth has a different number of teeth in it.
