Understanding the Benefits of Dental Implants

Common Challenges: Missing teeth can lead to a range of problems, including jawbone deterioration, shifting of surrounding teeth, changes in facial structure, and challenges with eating and speaking.

Advanced Solutions: Dental implants provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. The implant, a titanium post, is surgically placed into the jawbone, integrating with the bone to provide a stable foundation for artificial teeth.

Positive Outcomes: Patients who choose dental implants enjoy a restoration as close to natural teeth as possible. Implants help preserve the jawbone and facial structure and eliminate the issues associated with removable dentures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs to help you understand what to expect when dental implants are an option at Sarasota Dental Arts.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area.

How do dental implants work?
Once the implant post is placed and the jawbone heals, it fuses to the bone in a process called osseointegration. This provides a stable foundation for attaching a crown, which is custom-made to match your natural teeth.
Are dental implants safe?

Yes, dental implants are a safe and effective solution for replacing missing teeth when performed by an experienced dental surgeon.

They have been used successfully for decades.

How long do dental implants last?
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. The crown attached to the implant may need to be replaced due to wear and tear after about 10 to 15 years.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Most adults with good general oral health and sufficient bone in their jaw to support implants are good candidates.

Conditions like uncontrolled diabetes or cancer may affect healing and need to be evaluated on an individual basis.

Is getting dental implants painful?
The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation, so you shouldn’t feel pain during the implantation. Some discomfort may occur during the healing process, but this can generally be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
How do I care for my dental implants?
Care for dental implants just as you would your natural teeth: brush twice a day, floss daily, and attend regular dental check-ups and cleanings.
What is the cost of dental implants?
The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the number of implants and the need for any additional procedures such as bone grafting. We provide a detailed cost breakdown during your consultation.
Can dental implants fail?
While dental implants have a high success rate, failures can occur due to factors like infection, insufficient bone density, or excessive stress on the implant. Smoking can also increase the risk of implant failure.
What are the advantages of dental implants over dentures or bridges?

Unlike dentures, which can slip or cause bone loss, or bridges, which may require the alteration of adjacent healthy teeth, dental implants are permanent, don’t move, and help maintain jawbone integrity.
