Dental Implants Q&A
What is a dental implant?
Contrary to popular belief, a dental implant is not a replacement tooth. It is a replacement tooth root. Other dental prosthetics are supported by gum tissue or existing teeth, which poses a number of problems. Removable appliances may be unstable, and those permanently affixed to teeth can fail if the tooth decays. Additionally, these options do not preserve bone health.
A dental implant is a tiny cylindrical piece of titanium, which is inserted in the jawbone where a root would naturally be. A unique property of titanium is the ability to bond with living bone tissue, a process known as osseointegration. Without the stimulation provided by a tooth root or dental implant, the bone begins melting away. Over time, this can affect the alignment of remaining teeth, as well as the visible contours of your face.
Dental implants are placed in a gentle, comfortable, and highly predicable surgery. Most patients compare the procedure to having a tooth extracted. Any soreness is usually mild, and dissipates within a few days. The next step in the process is attaching beautiful new restorations. Depending on the situation, implants may be restored immediately, or after osseointegration is complete.
Implants can be topped with crowns, bridges, or dentures. The restorations are designed with the same meticulous attention to detail and dedication to quality for which Dr. Michael Delmont is well known. Implant supported restorations look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. They require no more care and attention than teeth. With regular dental visits and good oral hygiene, implants are expected to last a lifetime!
