What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. An implant can serve as a safe and durable foundation for a custom dental crown for those missing one tooth. Our dentist can strategically place dental implants to support a custom dental bridge or custom denture for those who are missing several or all of their teeth.
In order to understand how they work, it is important to be familiar with the anatomy of a dental implant. A dental implant consists of three parts: the implant post/body, abutment and crown or dental prosthetic. The implant body is a titanium cylinder that a prosthodontist, or oral surgeon surgically places in the jawbone. It serves as an anchor for the replacement tooth or a dental prosthetic. The abutment attaches to the implant post and it holds the crown or prosthetic in place. The crown is custom-made from porcelain or ceramic material and it looks just like a natural tooth. Together, these three components make up a complete dental implant that can provide years of reliable use.

What are the Benefits of Replacing Missing Teeth?
Replacing missing teeth can provide numerous benefits to your overall oral health and appearance. Not only can it improve the appearance of your smile, but it can also help restore the function of your bite and chewing ability. Additionally, replacing missing teeth can help prevent other dental issues such as jawbone deterioration, gum disease, and shifting of remaining teeth. Replacing missing teeth can also provide psychological benefits such as increased confidence and improved self-esteem.
Am I A Candidate For Dental Implants?
When determining if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants, there are several factors all patients may want to consider. During your consultation, Dr. Stein and Dr.Weiss will discuss your medical history, cosmetic goals, and oral health needs to determine which restorative solution best suits your needs. Keep in mind certain types of medical conditions may affect your eligibility for dental implants.
When determining candidacy for dental implants, our team will assess your smile for the following:
- Bone tissue density: Traditionally, a patients jaw needs to have an adequate amount of healthy bone tissue to support a dental implant. However, with techniques such as bone grafting or sinus lift surgery, we can strengthen the bone and allow patients to undergo implantation surgery.
- Gum tissue health: You need to address periodontal disease before getting dental implants. In advanced cases, the infection can spread to the jaw! This can prevent your dental implant procedure from being successful.
- Medical issues: Any medical issue that may hinder your body’s ability to heal after the implant placement.
While there are a few factors that may impact a patient’s chance of receiving dental implants, there are many techniques we can employ to allow patients who weren’t ideal candidates for a dental implant in the past, candidates for the dental implant procedure. In many cases, patients are able to undergo a successful implant procedure and achieve the smile of their dreams.
