what are dental implants?

Both general dentists and specialists perform the procedure the same way. The dental implant is a small post, usually made of titanium, that replaces the rotten tooth. The abutment is built into the top of the dental implant, connecting it to the replacement tooth. Finally, the replacement tooth, or crown, is custom-made to match the patient’s natural teeth.

Since dental implants do not affect a patient’s natural teeth, this procedure allows them to enjoy having new, functional teeth without interfering with their existing teeth. Dental implants can also help with the following:

  • Bone loss prevention
  • Better appearance and overall self-worth
  • Convenience and comfort
  • Gum disease prevention

Many patients choose dental implants for their convenience. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassment and inconvenience of removing dentures and are a long-term solution for missing teeth.

when should you consider dental implant services?

Replacing missing teeth with dental implants is a common dental procedure that has been conducted for the past 50 years. Dental implants are one of the most effective kinds of treatment, and it’s incredibly important to replace missing teeth.

Left untreated, the bone in the jaw below the missing tooth can start to disintegrate, causing the surrounding teeth to move and shift. Shifting can cause other problems and alter the alignment of a person’s bite. People consider dental implants for a variety of reasons, such as the following:

  • When someone can no longer wear dentures
  • When someone needs a bridge or dentures to replace missing teeth
  • When someone using a fixed bridge solution feels discomfort or experiences deterioration to the jawbone underneath the missing teeth
  • When active jawbone deterioration causes a person’s face to appear sunken in
  • When tooth decay is so severe that a dentist cannot repair it with a dental filling procedure

who can provide implant services?

While dental patients can see nearly any dentist for dental implant surgery, there’s something to be said for choosing dentists specializing in dental implants. Most patients will decide based on their convenience—as it fits their budget, schedule, and the availability of dentists they already know. Still, it helps to know which types of dentists they can trust to do a good job when it comes to dental implants:

  • General dentist – A general dentist typically attends continuing education courses later in their career to learn how to place dental implants. They may not have the in-depth knowledge needed for more complex surgical cases.
  • Cosmetic dentist – A cosmetic dentist focuses more on the aesthetic side of dentistry. Though skilled in restoring dental implants, they may not have training in dental implant placement unless they’ve completed continuing education courses.
  • Periodontist – A periodontist can treat people with severe gum disease or bone loss before placing dental implants.
  • Prosthodontist – Prosthodontists are skilled in aesthetic treatments to ensure natural-looking, functional outcomes. These dental specialists are especially proficient when teeth in a patient’s visible smile need to be replaced.
  • Oral surgeon – An oral surgeon has received the most additional training outside dental school. Proficient and highly skilled in dental surgeries, even as recent graduates, an oral surgeon is the most qualified dentist to place dental implants.
