What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace missing teeth using a surgically implanted post or screw that is affixed with an artificial tooth (crown). Dental implants offer greater oral health benefits than other types of dental restorations, such as dentures. This is because dental implants are the only dental restoration that functions like natural teeth.

The surgically implanted screw replicates the function of a natural tooth root. Once an implant is placed in the jaw, the bone, and the soft tissues begin to fuse with the implant in a process called osseointegration. Osseointegration not only secures the implant with the jaw but also promotes new tissue and bone growth, thus preventing any further loss of jaw bone. Once the process of osseointegration is complete, the implant is fitted with a custom dental crown that matches your other teeth in shape, size, and color.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants represent the best of the best in restorative dental treatments. Most patients are good candidates for dental implants, although additional procedures may be necessary before receiving dental implants. As a comprehensive oral surgery practice, even patients who have lived with missing teeth for an extended period can become candidates for dental implants.

For example, those who have lost significant bone may be excellent candidates for Zygoma implants. Alternatively, those who do not have sufficient bone height and density to support dental implants can become eligible after bone grafting surgery.

While no two patients are the same, general eligibility for dental implants includes:

  • Missing one or more teeth
  • Free of active gum disease
  • Healthy enough to undergo surgery
  • Non-smoker
  • No chronic diseases or conditions that make surgery risky
  • Committed to maintaining good oral health with regular dental care

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

Will insurance cover dental implants?
Dental insurance does not cover dental implants. Some policies may grant an allowance for implant-supported dentures or bridges. Check with your insurance company for specific coverage and exclusions. Oral and Facial Surgery Associates, LLC gladly accepts all credit cards and third-party financing from CareCredit and Proceed Finance.
Can a dental implant be placed immediately following an extraction?
Yes. In many cases, a tooth extraction can be immediately followed by implant placement.
How long does the dental implant process take?
It depends. Some patients may have an implant placed immediately following an extraction. Others may need to wait up to six months after the implant surgery to receive the permanent crowns and complete treatment.
How many teeth can I replace with dental implants?
You can replace any or all missing teeth with dental implants.
Are dental implants hard to care for?
No. On the contrary, dental implants are very easy to maintain, with excellent oral hygiene habits, and regular dental cleanings. Dental implants are naturally stain and cavity-resistant.
How long is recovery from dental implant surgery?
Initial healing typically takes about a week. However, it takes several months for the implant to fuse with the bone.
Will I be awake during dental implant surgery?
It depends on the type of sedation used. General anesthesia will put you to sleep, while IV sedation creates a “twilight sleep” where you remain conscious, but relaxed and unlikely to remember the procedure.
Will my dental implants need to be replaced in the future?
With good oral hygiene and oral healthcare, you may never need to replace your dental implants. You may need to replace the dental crowns after many years, but most people will not need to replace the implants.
