Dental Implants Q & A
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are replacement teeth implanted directly into your jaw. They provide a natural looking permanent solution to replacing lost teeth. Implants are comprised of a titanium post implanted into the jaw, an abutment which connects the post to the third part, the artificial tooth or crown. A dental implant provides stimulation to the jaw promoting oral health, just as a natural tooth root does.
If you have lost teeth and want a natural and permanent replacement, make an appointment with the experts at Georgetown Dental Spa to learn more about the options available and to determine if dental implants are the best solution for your individual needs.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
The base of the implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. As your mouth heals, the implant will essentially fuse with your jawbone, to create a sturdy and long-lasting foundation for your new tooth. After it’s healed, a connector and cap will be secured in place, so that the piece is complete and integrates perfectly with your existing teeth. The implantation process can take several months, depending on the health of the jaw and the amount of time the patient needs to heal between each step of the process.
Once healed, you can eat, brush your teeth, drink and chew just as you normally would. Your dental implants from Georgetown Dental Spa will restore the full function of your mouth, your smile, and your happiness.
How Long Will the Implant Last?
For patients who are middle-aged, implants can last you a lifetime. The base of a dental implant is made of strong materials and secured in such a way that you’ll probably never have to worry about getting it replaced. However, the crown, or cap, usually last about 10-15 years. It is not uncommon to have to get this top part of your dental implant replaced. With the proper care, your dental implant will last you many years. Contact the office at Georgetown Dental Spa today to learn more.
