What are Dental Implants?

After Dental Implants Towson, MD

Dental Implants have been used successfully for many years.
The implant itself is a post that is surgically placed in the jaw.

A prosthesis (artificial tooth or teeth) is then attached to the post.

What are Dental Implants Used For?

There are two basic uses for Dental Implants:

  1. As an artificial root for a single tooth replacement.
  2. As anchors for a fixed or removable prosthesis to replace multiple teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

With the exception of your natural teeth, nothing looks more natural than an implant.
One important benefit of implants is that they slow the shrinking of bone and gum tissue from the area of the missing tooth,
thus preventing premature aging.

  • Of Americans between the ages of 18 and 64, approximately 49% are missing at least one tooth.
  • Dental implants are the most advanced tooth replacement system ever devised.
  • More than nine out of ten implants last longer than 15 years.
  • Dental implants never develop decay.
  • Dental implants never require root canals.
  • Dental implants preserve the jawbone, which can prevent premature aging.
  • No one can be disqualified for implant treatment solely because of their age --
    some patients receive implant treatment when they are in their nineties!

The gum is gently folded back and a space is prepared for the implant to be placed. The dental implant "anchor" is put into place. A temporary cap is placed on the implant and the gum tissue is repositioned around the implant. The implant is left alone for several months so the bone can attach to the implant and create a secure anchor.

After the implant has had a chance to attach to the bone tissue, the temporary cap is removed from the anchor and a post is attached to the anchor. The implant is now ready for a prosthesis. An impression is taken of the implant and the appropriate prosthesis (crown, bridge or overdenture) is made. The prosthesis is then attached to the implant(s).
