1. What is a dental implant?

An implant is a man-made replacement for natural teeth which allows the person to return to fixed teeth. It is not a transplant, which is taken from another person. You would require an x-ray to evaluate the amount of bone remaining for evaluation.   2. Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Anyone who is missing one or more (even all) of their teeth may be a candidate for implants. If all or most of your teeth are missing, then implants may be placed to anchor a denture. Sometimes, if there is already some bone loss, bone can be added and regenerated.                                                                                                                                  3. Why should I consider dental implants? What will happen without treatment for my missing teeth
                                                                                                                                                                For many, missing teeth lead to an unattractive smile, embarrassment from loose dentures .
When you lose your teeth, you gradually lose the bone that supported them. As this bone disappears, problems with other teeth nearby happen. This results in loose teeth.  Since the bone is deteriorating, it will spread and deteriorate around healthy teeth and ultimately cause the loss of those teeth.  This is similar to "domino effect". In addition, this progression will affect the ability to provide the same treatment in the later stages of bone loss than if treatment had been started earlier in the process. It's much better to replace a tooth BEFORE all of the side effects kick in. By waiting, you risk the possibility of not being able to provide the same, simple type of treatment that would have been possible earlier.

 4. How will I know if implants can be done in my case?

Our consultation will evaluate your mouth with a clinical exam and an x-ray exam in order to determine your potential for implants. The x-ray exam will be able to show how much bone is present in the locations where you will need implants placed.

5. How long do implants last?
Different long term research studies have shown that implants which have been placed in good bone can last for a patient's lifetime /20-25 years. However, some implants can fail if the quality of the bone wasn't good, if there was too much bite stress for too few implants or implants which weren't long enough.The failure rate is about 2-8% with implants.
6. How are dental implants placed?
Dental implants are usually completed in two phases.
Phase #1 is the actual implant placement, a process generally performed in the office with local anaesthesia or light sedation to help make the patient more comfortable. Using precise, gentle techniques, the implants are placed into the jawbone for 2 to3 months while osseointegration (bonding to bone) takes place. This helps ensure a strong, solid foundation for replacement teeth. During this time, temporary bridges or dentures may be used to minimize any cosmetic or chewing inconvenience.
Phase #2 involves creating and attaching the new tooth or teeth to the anchored implant(s) in your jaw. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth or complete dentures.
