About Dental Implants

Do you have broken or damaged teeth? Crowns, conventional bridges, and dentures are not your only options for replacing damaged teeth. Many people prefer to have dental implant surgery because of the major benefits of having a smile that looks and feels natural.

Advantages to Dental Implants

  • They reduce gum recession and bone loss which often happens with traditional bridges and with dentures.
  • They’re stationary: no wobbling or clicking
  • They do not have a collateral effect to neighboring teeth as with bridges
  • They’re durable, reliable and dependable
  • Implant-supported bridges are more comfortable
  • They preserve bone health by substituting for the missing root, thus providing the mass to assist the bone in retaining its natural size
  • They do not cause difficulties with eating particular foods

What to Expect with Dental Implants

Dental implants are surgically placed below the gums which causes them to fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.

Because tooth implants are fused to your jaw bone, they offer more stability than bridges and dentures. Integration of the tooth implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.

Dental Implants FAQ

Is getting dental implants safe?

Yes, getting dental implants is a very safe procedure. While any type of surgery has a small amount of risk, dental implants have been safely used for more than 30 years with about a 98% success rate.

Is getting dental implants painful?

This is a common question because the dental implant procedure does require surgery. However, with local anesthetic and other sedation options, Dr. Kodish and Dr. Perez work to ensure your procedure is completed with the utmost comfort in mind. During the recovery process, some degree of discomfort, swelling, bleeding, and bruising is to be expected and completely normal. During this time, you may be prescribed pain relievers or use over-the-counter pain medication to keep you comfortable.

How long does a dental implant typically last?

Most patients can expect their dental implants to last decades with regular dental visits and proper oral hygiene. The implant itself is permanent; however, the crown, bridge, or dentures attached to them have a lifespan of about 15 – 20 years or longer in some cases.

Who can get dental implants?

Most patients who are in good general health with healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implants are candidates for dental implants.
