Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that anchors an artificial tooth in place. Implants replace permanent teeth that are missing or require extraction because of severe tooth decay or damage. Dental implants can restore the appearance and function of your smile and offer many additional benefits. They anchor dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Some of the many benefits you can experience with dental implants at the Dental Lounge include:

  • No more tooth gaps
  • Improved speech
  • Easier chewing
  • Less adjacent teeth shifting
  • Aesthetically pleasing smile
  • More self-confidence
  • Improvement in facial contours and symmetry

Dental implants and the false teeth they support look, function, and feel just like natural teeth.

Are dental implants right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants, Dental Lounge providers discuss your desired outcome, review your oral health history, examine your gums and teeth, and take dental X-rays. They personalize restorative and cosmetic dental treatments to match your needs and preferences.

What happens when getting dental implants?

If you have a strong enough jawbone, your dentist can implant titanium tooth roots into your jaw during a minor surgical procedure. If not, you may first require bone grafting to strengthen and increase the size of your jaw bone. After a period of healing, your jawbone grows around the dental implants. 

Your dentist can digitally scan your mouth or take an impression, allowing a dental lab to create custom-fitted crowns, bridges, or dentures that attach to dental implants. When your new artificial teeth are ready, your provider permanently bonds them to the implants to perfect your smile.

What should I expect after getting dental implants?

Take good care of your new dental implants by brushing your teeth after meals, flossing every day, and not chewing on hard objects like hard candy, popcorn kernels, and ice. Don’t open packages with your teeth or bite your nails.

See the Dental Lounge team every six months for dental cleanings and exams, and call the office if your dental implants get damaged or if you experience tooth pain.
