Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

For many patients, getting dental implants is the best way to replace missing natural teeth. When you lose your teeth due to tooth decay, a disease, or a traumatic injury, your self-esteem and smile can take a hit. Strong, durable, and aesthetically attractive dental implants can help restore the simple confidence that comes with having natural teeth.

A dental implant consists of a titanium post that’s surgically implanted into your upper or lower jawbone. The post serves as the root for a dental crown, and together they look and act just like your natural teeth. The implants fuse to your jawbone, so they are strong, stable, and don’t shift in your mouth.

Why do patients choose dental implants?

Dental implants have repaired the smiles of millions of people for years. Beyond performing, looking, and feeling like your natural teeth, dental implants offer the following advantages:

  • They are a long-term solution, lasting at least 15-20 years with proper hygiene
  • They help maintain your natural face shape and restore your smile
  • They protect the health and integrity of your jawbone
  • They maintain the positioning of surrounding natural teeth

Unlike dentures, implants are firmly fixed, so they don’t fall out or move around in your mouth. You can chew and speak with comfort and ease.

Can someone like me get dental implants?

If you're missing teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for getting dental implants. Your gums need to be healthy, and your jaw must be finished growing. Dental implants are not for children, but they are an excellent solution for adults.

You could also be a great implant candidate if you're tired of dealing with dentures, or it's time to replace a partial denture or a bridge. Patients looking for a more permanent, long-term solution may be good candidates for implants. Dr. Gershfeld will discuss all of your options during your consultation.
