Dental Implants


What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that can be used as a replacement for natural tooth roots. Replacement teeth, supported by dental implants, look and feel like your own teeth and can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to their unique and bio-compatible properties, titanium dental implants fuse well with natural bone and act as an anchor for replacement teeth. Dental implants provide many advantages and can be used in situations that call for the replacement of single or multiple missing teeth.

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a replacement for natural tooth roots, without which the jawbone can shrink. Unlike traditional dentures or dental bridges, dental implants can prevent jawbone shrinkage and the unwanted physical appearances of this malady. Any person who is missing one or more teeth is a candidate for dental implants. Dr.’s Movaghari and Urteaga or one of our trained staff may discuss the role of dental implants in your overall dental care assessment.

What are the advantages of dental implants over dentures or a dental bridge?

In a situation where there are one or a number of missing teeth, dental implants work to help preserve the surrounding natural teeth without having to grind them down to be used as anchors for dental bridges. Additionally, dental implants are a more permanent solution, as there are no loose parts or adjustments to be made.

How will dental implants affect my life?

Replacement teeth, as supported by dental implants, have all of the look and function of normal teeth. Chewing capacity is not diminished, meaning that you can eat and drink as you normally would. Furthermore, your dental implants and replacement teeth will allow you to smile again as normal.

How will I care for my dental implants?

Your new replacement teeth are just like your natural teeth. Brush and floss as recommended. See your dentist every six months.
