Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

A dental implant helps restore your missing teeth and improve your jaw structure, and can also help secure your dentures. A dental implant is a titanium post that replaces the root of a tooth.  Once restored with a custom connection and a crown, it looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Not only can dental implants improve the look of your smile, but they also provide retention and stability to other restorative dental work, resulting in a more natural feel than something like conventional dentures. 

The security of the titanium implant offers stable support for your replacement tooth, bridges, or individual crowns. Dental implants also allow you to eat the foods you like without worrying about the consequences of tooth decay.

If you use removable dentures but aren’t fond of the glue that comes along with them, dental implants are an excellent option for securing your dentures. If you’re looking to secure your whole denture, check out the dentures service to read about other options Centerport Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry provides.

How can you keep your dental implants healthy?

With the right dental care, your dental implants can last a lifetime. The providers at Centerport Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry recommend the following tips to increase your success with your new implants:

  • Brush twice a day and floss at least once daily
  • If you’re a smoker, try to quit
  • Schedule a dental cleaning and exam at least once every six months
  • Try to avoid eating hard foods like ice or hard candy

To receive dental implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. The team at Centerport Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry will help you find out if implants are right for you.
