What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Getting dental implants may be an option for patients in good general health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, dental injury, or some other reason.
Should you consider dental implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is surgically anchored to your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Dental implants are a natural looking solution to fix the gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth.
Implants are also a great solution for patients who are experiencing weak or failing teeth, if their bone structure is still intact. A dental implant can help support a healthy smile.
What are risks of dental implants?
As with any medical or dental procedure there are risks that need to be considered. With any work done in peoples’ mouths there is a risk of infection at the time of surgery.
Be sure to tell your periodontist about any medications that you take and if you have had any prior history of bleeding after a medical or dental procedure.
