What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth, including crowns, bridges, or dentures, that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are a long-lasting and durable solution for missing teeth.

The Dental Implant Procedure

  1. Initial Consultation

    • Dr. Kim will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays and 3D imaging, to assess your oral health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.

  2. Implant Placement

    • During the surgical procedure, the dental implant is placed into the jawbone. The area is then allowed to heal for several months, during which the implant fuses with the bone in a process called osseointegration.

  3. Abutment Placement

    • Once the implant has integrated with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment serves as a connector between the implant and the replacement tooth.

  4. Restoration

    • Finally, a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture is attached to the abutment, completing the restoration and providing a natural-looking and fully functional tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Natural Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, enhancing your smile’s appearance.
  • Improved Function: Implants restore full chewing and speaking abilities, allowing you to eat and communicate with confidence.
  • Durability: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, offering a permanent solution for missing teeth.
  • Bone Preservation: Implants help maintain the jawbone structure, preventing bone loss and preserving facial contours.
  • Comfort and Stability: Unlike traditional dentures, implants provide a secure and stable fit without the need for adhesives.
