Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants? 

Dental implants support an artificial tooth or teeth, like a crown, bridge, or denture. Your provider places the titanium implant into your jawbone, which fuses to the bone over several weeks. They then use an abutment to connect the implant to your new tooth. 

What are the benefits of dental implants?

There are several advantages to rehabilitating your smile with a dental implant, including: 

  • Improving cosmetic appearance 
  • Comfortability 
  • Restoring chewing abilities 
  • Improving speech 
  • Preserving gum and bone health 
  • Improving overall oral hygiene 
  • Easy maintenance 
  • Keeping surrounding teeth secure 
  • Lasting for many years 
  • Eliminating troublesome removal of dentures 

Your Dorri’s Dental provider discusses whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants before proceeding with a treatment plan. 

What are the types of dental implants? 

Depending on whether you need one implant or multiple, your provider may recommend:

Single tooth implant 

These implants support a single missing tooth or a bridge with multiple artificial teeth.

All-on-4® dental implants

All-on-4 dental implants can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They are considered same-day implants because of the placement approach.

Multiple implants

If All-on-4 implants aren’t an option for you, your provider may recommend placing multiple implants in your jawbone to support a full set of dentures. 

The team works with you to determine which implant option best suits your immediate dental needs, goals, and budget. 

What can I expect when getting a single dental implant? 

During your initial consultation, your provider examines your mouth and takes 3D X-rays and a CT scan to create detailed images of your teeth, jaw, and face. This technology helps them create an accurate treatment plan. 

During the procedure, your provider uses local anesthesia and offers a sedation method, like nitrous oxide, to ensure you’re comfortable. They place the dental implant, which looks like a screw, into your jaw. 

Over the next few months, the implant fuses with your bone, forming an anchor for your new fake tooth. 

Once healed, you’ll return to the Dorri’s Dental office, where the team utilizes an iTeroscanner to create an artificial, natural-looking tooth that fits perfectly with your other teeth.

Once ready, your provider attaches the replacement tooth to the implant.
