What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the gold standard in the replacement of missing teeth. Each implant consists of a titanium root that is anchored into the jawbone, topped with a custom-fitted crown that appears and functions like a natural tooth. This modern dental technology not only restores the aesthetics of your smile but also the structural integrity of your jaw and mouth.

The Dental Implant Process

  1. Implant Placement: The titanium implant, acting as a new root, is placed into the jawbone.
  2. Healing: Time is allowed for the bone to heal and integrate with the titanium implant, creating a solid foundation.
  3. Abutment Placement: A support post, or abutment, is then attached to the implant.
  4. Crown Attachment: A custom-made crown is placed on top of the abutment, completing the look and function of natural teeth.
  5. Immediate Placement Options: In some cases, a temporary tooth can be attached immediately after implant placement.

Surgical Advances in Dental Implants

Dr. Shnayder employs the latest advances in dental implant technology, allowing for:

  • Single-Stage Implants: These implants streamline the process by eliminating the need for a second surgery to expose the implant.
  • Immediate Load Implants: Where possible, implants are placed simultaneously with tooth extraction to minimize surgical interventions and reduce overall treatment time.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Natural Look and Feel: Implants closely mimic the look and functionality of your natural teeth.
  • Long-Lasting Solution: With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
  • Bone Preservation: Implants prevent bone loss and maintain facial structure.
  • Improved Oral Health: Unlike bridges, implants do not require altering adjacent teeth, thus preserving more of your natural teeth.
  • Enhanced Comfort and Confidence: Securely anchored implants allow you to eat, speak, and smile with ease.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideal candidates for dental implants have good overall health, adequate bone in their jaw to support the implant, and healthy gums. Smokers or those with chronic disorders like diabetes or heart disease may need to be evaluated more closely to ensure implants are a viable option.

The duration of the dental implant process can vary depending on individual cases. Typically, it involves several phases, including the initial consultation, the implant placement, the healing period which can last a few months, and the placement of the crown. Healing time might be extended if bone grafting is necessary.

Patients are usually concerned about pain, but most people report that the procedure involves less discomfort than a tooth extraction. Local anesthesia or sedation is used during surgery to ensure comfort. Post-operative discomfort is typically managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Dental implants require the same care as your natural teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. It is essential to maintain good oral hygiene to ensure the longevity of the implant and the health of the surrounding gums and teeth.
