What Are Dental Implants?

A Lifelike Replacement for Missing Teeth

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth.
These posts serve as a sturdy foundation for artificial teeth, providing a secure and durable solution that closely mimics the natural structure of your teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

  1. Permanent Solution: Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care, offering a permanent and reliable solution for missing teeth.

  2. Natural Look and Feel: Implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, providing a seamless and lifelike smile that enhances your overall appearance.

  3. Preservation of Jawbone: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure over time. This makes them a beneficial choice for long-term oral health.

  4. Restored Functionality: With dental implants, you can enjoy restored chewing ability and speech, allowing you to confidently eat and communicate without concerns about slipping or discomfort.

  5. Versatility: Whether you need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or secure a full set of dentures, dental implants offer versatile solutions tailored to your specific needs.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort. Post-surgery, any mild discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

The complete process can take several months, allowing for proper healing and integration of the implants with the jawbone.

In general, individuals in good health with adequate jawbone density are good candidates for dental implants. Dr. Rishay will assess your suitability during the consultation.

Dental implants require regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. Maintaining good oral health is crucial for the longevity of your implants.
