Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants replace natural tooth roots that anchor artificial teeth, including crowns, bridges, and dentures.

The implants are small, strong metal posts that fit into your jawbone. Over time, the bone regrows around the base of the post, securing it in place as firmly as a natural tooth root.

You can replace one missing tooth with a dental implant or all your teeth.


Why should I consider dental implants?

People often don’t realize the effects on the surrounding bone of losing teeth. When the tooth comes out, the bone begins to shrink and weaken. Other teeth might shift slightly, creating misalignments. You may have difficulties eating and speaking clearly.

Missing teeth can also affect your self-confidence. Dental implants look so natural that no one would guess they weren’t your original teeth.

Dental implants are the most secure, long-lasting choice for replacement teeth. You don’t need to worry about caring for dentures or taking your new teeth out to clean them. You can eat freely too, something that isn’t always possible with other kinds of replacement teeth.


Are dental implants right for me?

All Dental of Menifee has a highly skilled periodontist — an expert in dental implants — on staff. To ensure implants are the best choice, they look at your teeth and gums and do X-rays to assess the jawbone.

You need to have enough depth and strength in the jawbone to support the implants. You might require bone graft surgery to build up your jaw if you don’t have sufficient bone. Your periodontist has the specialized expertise to advise you and carry out the procedure.

If dental implants replace damaged or decayed teeth, you’ll need to have the teeth extracted first.


What does having dental implants involve?

Dental implants require minor surgery. After your periodontist numbs your gum and jaw, they drill into the bone, fitting each implant, where they eventually fuse into place.

You might have individual implants. Or, if you need several teeth replaced, a system that uses four or six implants can replace all your upper or lower teeth. When the implants are ready, your periodontist secures your new, custom-made teeth over the top.

Traditional dental implants require several months of healing to ensure the bone fuses around the post. But same-day dental implants are also available for suitable patients.
