What are dental implants?

Dental implants are natural-looking artificial teeth that are designed to “work” just like a natural tooth. An implant consists of a metal post that's implanted into the jaw, a crown or prosthetic tooth created to look just like your own teeth, and a piece called an abutment that attaches the post and tooth securely. Dental implants are a popular alternative to bridges and partial dentures because they feel and look like a natural tooth and they can be cared for with regular brushing and flossing, just like your own teeth.

What happens during the implant procedure?

Before an implant is placed, your jaw will be assessed to determine if you have enough bone to support it. In some cases, you may need to have a bone graft which uses a small sample of your own bone or bone from a tissue bank to help augment your own natural bone. Placing an implant usually requires three visits. First, the metal post will be implanted into the jaw. If a bone graft is required, it can usually be performed at the same time. A few weeks will pass before the second visit to allow the post to fuse with your bone, then the abutment will be attached and an impression will be made. At the third visit, your new tooth will be attached to the abutment.

What if my implants become damaged?

Implants are extremely durable, and today's implant techniques make them stronger than ever before. However, they can become broken, chipped or even loose just like your own teeth, especially if your bite something hard, use the tooth as a prying tool or allow gum disease to develop. In those cases, the implant can usually be repaired. When an implant can't be repaired, it may need to be replaced, and in some cases, the bone may need to be supplemented with a bone graft.
