What Is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants have been an alternative for replacing teeth for over 30 years. They are a long-term way to replace lost or damaged teeth. Dental implants are a man-made titanium replacement that is placed directly into the bone in place of the missing roots. Within a few months, the bone attaches to the implant making it permanent. Replacement teeth can then be attached and your chewing can be restored.

Who Is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you are missing one or more teeth or have a removable denture that is loose or uncomfortable, and are in reasonably good health, you are likely to be a candidate for dental implants. A thorough examination and consultation with Dr. Bechtel will allow you to determine the best solution to meet your specific goals.

How Successful are Dental Implants?

Very few things last a lifetime. However, dental implants are one of the most successful procedures that dentistry has. Success rates are upwards of 90% – 95% depending on each person’s needs and health.

How Do I Care for My Dental Implants?

By maintaining first-rate home care, prioritizing regular brushing and flossing, along with regular dental visits, your dental implants can last for a lifetime.

Reasons for Dental Implants:

• Dental implants will look, feel, and function like normal, healthy teeth
• When a tooth is missing, the bone begins to shrink and the jawbone changes shape
• Dental implants will help preserve the natural contours of your face
• Dental implants will help preserve normal chewing leading to better overall health
• Dental implants can help stabilize and support loose and uncomfortable dentures
