What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth used when you have one or more missing teeth and either can’t have or don’t want dentures or other options. A dental implant works the same as a regular tooth, allowing for proper chewing and talking, and can resolve other problems caused by missing teeth. The implant can also restore confidence and a healthy smile.

A dental implant consists of the following:

  • A titanium post surgically inserted into the jawbone to serve as an anchor.
  • A replacement crown, typically ceramic or acrylic, affixed to the post when replacing a single tooth.
  • A bridge or new set of teeth to replace multiple teeth.

Surgery may take one or more sessions, depending on the number of teeth missing and their location. We will take a 3D radiograph to allow for proper planning of the procedure.

Your recovery can be affected by the type of material used for the implant, but also by your overall dental health. The implant itself allows for it to integrate into the jawbone, acting as a new root, but may require several months to heal completely.

Once we have your post in place, we will attach the new artificial tooth or teeth. During the healing process, this may be a temporary tooth. Once the healing is completed, it will be replaced by the permanent tooth. During this time, you can expect some swelling, tenderness, bruising, and bleeding, which is entirely normal.

Advantages of a Dental Implant

Choosing to receive a dental implant at Aspen Dental has many advantages such as:

Preventing Bone Loss
Losing teeth typically results in bone loss as well. Dental implants provide necessary jawbone stimulation that helps prevent bone loss from occurring.

Matches Your Natural Teeth
We will work with you to create a replacement tooth indistinguishable from your own natural teeth.

Greater Bite Force
Your implant will be anchored to your jaw with a titanium post, allowing you to bite with similar bite force as your natural teeth. Other options sit on top of your gums without being anchored in place.

Natural Speech
Dentures and other options can alter your speech by making it harder to pronounce certain words. Dental implants allow you to speak naturally.

Easy Care
Your dental implants still require care, but you will simply brush them along with your natural teeth. No special cleaning products are required.

A Lifetime of Smiles
Other tooth replacement options may need to be repaired periodically, or even replaced. Your implant is built to last a lifetime.
