Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a technologically advanced tooth-replacement solution. Your tooth can be divided into two main parts: the crown (which is the visible part of the tooth) and its roots. Dental implants are small posts that replace the root portion of your tooth.

They’re typically made from biocompatible substances like titanium or ceramic, which means that your body doesn’t realize that they’re foreign objects.

Because of this, as your jawbone heals from the procedure used to place your dental implant, the implant fuses with the bone tissue providing a strong and sturdy foundation for a restoration that’s comparable to a natural tooth.

The team at Roseroot Dental can use dental implants to replace individual teeth or as the foundation for an implant-supported bridge or denture to replace multiple missing teeth. Roseroot Dental is committed to a mercury-free practice and uses only the safest materials for their implant restorations.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants replace your missing teeth, which enable you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, and talk like you used to. Replacing your missing teeth also has several health benefits, like keeping the rest of your teeth in alignment by preventing them from shifting into the empty space.

Compared to other restorations like bridges or dentures, dental implants also have an advantage in that they connect to your jawbone and provide your bone tissue with healthy stimulation.

When you’re missing the root of your tooth, the lack of stimulation in your jawbone can cause your bone tissue to deteriorate, which can make your face appear sunken in and leave your jaw in a compromised state. By stimulating your jawbone, dental implants help to prevent these conditions from developing.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

For your dental implants to be successful, your mouth needs to be free of periodontal disease and your jawbone needs to have enough healthy tissue to support your implant.

If you’re suffering from gum disease, the team at Roseroot Dental will need to rehabilitate your smile with periodontal treatments before you can proceed with dental implants. If you don’t have enough bone tissue to support your implant, the team can perform a bone graft to augment your jawbone.
