What Is a Dental Implant?

An implant is a screw-shaped titanium post that your oral surgeon or periodontist surgically places into your jawbone to replace a missing tooth root, providing a stable and secure foundation for a tooth restoration. At Revive Family Dentistry, we work closely with your oral surgeon or periodontist to finish the dental implant process by placing natural-looking dental implant restorations on your implants, fully restoring the form and function of your missing teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implant Restorations?

Dental implants are the standard for restoring missing teeth because of their durability, strength, and incredibly natural results. When in place, your dental implant restorations will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.

The main advantage of implants over other restorations is that they function just like natural tooth roots. When a tooth is lost, the bone in the area begins to deteriorate because the tooth's root is no longer there to stabilize and stimulate the bone. By using titanium posts that fuse to the bone, you'll end up with a bond similar to the one found in nature, which helps preserve the bone.

Replacing missing teeth using dental implant restorations protects your oral health. When you lose a tooth, the neighboring teeth may begin to shift and tilt into the gap, which can affect your tooth alignment and your bite, potentially causing a host of dental problems.

With dental implant restorations, you'll be able to speak with confidence and can enjoy your favorite foods with no restrictions. You'll also restore your natural facial structure and your smile. Dental implant restorations are convenient, eliminating the need for dealing with dentures and messy adhesives to keep them in place. Implant surgery is one of the safest procedures in dentistry with a more than 95 percent success rate. With proper care, your implants have the potential of lasting a lifetime.

What Are the Types of Dental Implant Restorations?

Ceramic Dental Crowns: Ceramic dental crowns placed on dental implants can replace individual missing teeth. After taking impressions of your tooth, we will design a dental crown that closely resembles your natural teeth.

Ceramic Bridges: If you are missing two or more teeth in the same area, dental implants may be used to support a dental bridge. The bridge comes with natural-looking artificial teeth, but rather than attaching them to the adjacent teeth, implant-supported bridges sit securely on dental implants.

Implant-supported Dentures: If you are missing some or all of your teeth, we may recommend implant-supported dentures. Our denture restorations securely snap onto your dental implants, so you won't have to worry about them moving or shifting around.

Brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing your teeth regularly helps prevent plaque from hardening into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. Make sure you consume a balanced, nutritious diet and to drink plenty of water. It's best to limit sugary or acidic foods or drinks and to refrain from the use of tobacco products. Your smile will thank you!
