What are dental implants?

Dr. Edward Camacho is a dentist who regularly works with patients looking to restore their smiles after damage or disease. When one or more teeth are missing, patients have a few options to choose from, including dental bridges, partial dentures, full dentures, and dental implants. Many choose dental implants because of their many benefits. Dental implants are metal posts that look like small screws. They are designed to be a tooth root replacement. They are placed into the jawbone, where a tooth root rests. The placement of the implant stimulates the process of bone growth called osseointegration. The bone grows around the implant and holds it in place, and the implant itself is restored over the abutment that rests above the gum line. An abutment is a connecting piece that joins the implant to the crown.

How are dental implants restored?

Dental implants are restored in a few different ways. A single tooth replacement uses a dental crown over the abutment to act as a false tooth. Further, a dental implant may be used to help support a bridge. Alternatively, some patients with significant tooth loss can use several dental implants to retain a complete denture, replacing all the teeth in the dental arch.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants are:

  • Versatile
  • Natural-looking
  • Biocompatible
  • Great for maintaining bone
  • Long-lasting
  • Easy to care for

What is the cost of dental implants?

Dental implants are more costly than other alternatives to replace missing teeth; however, they can last a lifetime, unlike other options, so long-term, they are much more economical.
