Frequently Asked Questions

How do Dental Implants work?

A dental implant replaces a missing tooth root by inserting an artificial titanium root into your jaw. Implants can support dentures, crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Compared to other prosthetic treatments, implants have the closest structure to that of a natural tooth. While it may sound drastic, this procedure is now relatively routine and can usually be completed within a few hours.

Is it always possible to replace missing teeth with implants?

A lot depends on the health of your jawbones. To see how much bone remains in the tooth, your dentist will conduct several special tests. If not enough bone is present or if it is not healthy enough, implants cannot be placed without grafting new bone into the affected area first.

Can the implant teeth be cleaned easily?

Yes. For a successful, long-lasting implant, aftercare is crucial. It is essential to follow the care instructions given to you by your dental team.

Cleaning around the implanted teeth is no more challenging than cleaning the natural teeth. Nevertheless, you may need to clean some areas that are difficult to reach. There may be a need for more frequent hygienist visits, but your dental team can advise you on this.
