Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are man-made structures that replace your missing teeth. These implants restore the function and appearance of your smile, offering a permanent solution to missing teeth and dentures. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. They help you feel confident about your smile.

How do dental implants work?

If a tooth is missing or requires extraction, Dr. Ilan can place a dental implant in the gap down into your jaw bone. Your body grows bone around the implant during a process called osseointegration.      

After your jaw heals, Dr. Ilan places an abutment, or a fixture that fits onto the dental implant and attaches to a tooth restoration. Your final dental restoration is often a crown, bridge, or dentures, depending upon how many implants you require. 

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer a variety of benefits, including:

  • Slip-free designs that remain in place
  • A natural feel that’s comfortable and effective
  • Decreases in jawbone shrinkage
  • A beautiful, aesthetically pleasing smile
  • A full set of teeth
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Improved self-confidence

Dental implants are long-lasting. They look and feel just like natural teeth, so people won’t know your artificial teeth aren’t your own.

DPI dental is a brand new, state-of-the-art facility, offering full protection measures for COVID-19. When you arrive for dental appointments, you experience minimal to no wait time. Dr. Ilan has over 20 years of experience and completes all procedures in the office.

Are dental implants right for me?

Dental Implants may be the right solution if you have missing teeth, worn down or broken teeth, dentures that hurt or don’t fit correctly, or loose permanent teeth. To find out for sure, Dr. Ilan reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. He also takes dental X-rays.

To be a good candidate for the procedure you should be in good overall health and have a strong jaw bone, or be willing to undergo bone grafting if necessary. Getting dental implants requires a commitment of several months in many cases.
