Dental Implants Q & A

IPI of Torrance

What do dental implants do?

Many adults think dental implants are the next best thing to having natural teeth, and they might be right. When you lose your teeth as a result of a traumatic injury, decay, or an illness, it can hurt your self-esteem. Strong, durable, and aesthetically attractive, dental implants help restore the simple confidence that comes with having natural teeth.

A dental implant is a titanium post that's surgically anchored to your jawbone, beneath the gum line. This is essentially the root of a new tooth. It's similar in shape to an everyday screw. Once the post is in place and your mouth fully heals, a process that typically takes a few weeks, your dentist mounts the new replacement tooth (crown) on the post permanently. Since the dental implants fuse directly to your jawbone, they're strong and stable. They won't shift around uncomfortably in your mouth like some dentures.

These metal posts also work to help full dentures, partial dentures, crowns, and bridges stay solidly affixed to your jaw.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Beyond functioning, feeling, and looking like your natural teeth, dental implants offer the following ten benefits:

  • Can last a lifetime with good care
  • Offer a cost-effective solution to replacing missing teeth
  • Help maintain your natural smile and face shape
  • Protect your healthy jawbone
  • Help prevent decay of surrounding natural teeth
  • Improve speech by allowing you to talk without worry
  • Don't fall out of your mouth
  • Are strong and durable for chewing foods you love
  • Aren't vulnerable to cavities with an implanted crown
  • Offer a proven, predictable outcome for tooth repair

Dental implants are also a convenient option to restore your smile as the team at IPI of Torrance offers them in the comfort of their office, so there’s no need to make extra appointments or travel to another location.

Can anyone get dental implants?

Whether you're missing one tooth or multiple teeth, you may be an excellent dental implant candidate. Good candidates have healthy gums, and their jaws are finished growing. That's why dental implants are a fantastic solution for adults, not children.

You may also be a prime candidate for implants if you're irritated by dentures that slip, or if it's time to replace a bridge or partial dentures. Patients looking for a more permanent, long-term solution to their existing dental work may be good candidates for implants. Meet with your dentist at IPI of Torrance to learn more about your options for missing teeth and to see if implant treatment is the best solution for you.
