What are dental implants?

Dental implants mimic the appearance and functionality of natural teeth. When you lose a tooth due to decay or trauma, dental implants offer an excellent long-lasting restorative option.

A dental implant involves two procedures. The first is the surgical placement of a titanium post below the gums into your jawbone. It takes several months for the bone to fully integrate with the post to prepare it for the second part of the procedure.

The next step involves mounting the replacement tooth or other prosthetic on top of the post. The end result is a strong, secure, natural-looking tooth.

Are all dental implants the same?

There are different implants available to meet each patient’s needs. A consultation with Dr. Hakim can determine the best type of implant for you. Various implants include:

Single tooth dental implants

This implant provides a strong foundation for replacement teeth and can aid in the prevention of bone loss within the jaw. 

Implant-supported bridges

An implant-supported bridge restores gaps where three or more adjacent teeth are missing, typically with two implants to support the porcelain bridge.

Implant-supported dentures

This solution is for patients missing many or all of their teeth, requiring the placement of two or more implants. Implants can support dentures for optimal stability and patient comfort while talking and eating. 

Full arch with only four implants

This procedure offers upper or lower arch teeth replacement using only four implants as anchors called All-on-4®.

Mini dental implants (MDIs)

These are minimally invasive and significantly smaller in diameter, which are perfect in special situations.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer you the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth. They have advantages such as:

  • Being a permanent, long-lasting solution
  • Enhancing your ability to chew
  • Improving your speech
  • Being a conservative way to replace missing teeth
  • Not being susceptible to decay
