Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are made to replace natural teeth, including the tooth’s root. The natural roots of your teeth anchor them to your jawbone and make them sturdy, stable features in your mouth. 

Without a tooth root in a given area, your jawbone can start to deteriorate. That’s one of the reasons why dental implants are often the best option for tooth replacement. 

Your dentist embeds the dental implant in your jawbone during a surgical procedure. Your bones constantly regenerate, and your jawbone fuses with the implant during a process called osseointegration. This provides a stable base for a dental restoration like a crown or bridge. 

Century Park Dental Care offers the best dental implant services in the region, including same-day implants in some cases. The team safely places your dental implant using the latest techniques and creates custom restorations that look natural and suit your smile. 

Why might I need dental implants?

Dental implants are one of the most popular solutions to missing teeth. Whether you’ve lost one or several teeth, dental implants can lay the foundation for a complete and fully functional smile. 

You might lose teeth due to:

  • Tooth decay
  • Failed root canal
  • Wear-and-tear
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Gum disease

The team at Century Park Dental Care selects the type of restoration you’ll need for your implants based on the number of teeth you’ve lost. 

Single crowns can attach to implants and replace individual teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace more than one tooth, and implant dentures or overdentures replace entire rows of teeth using implants for support. 

How do I maintain my dental implants?

Maintaining your dental implants and your oral health is pretty simple compared to other options for tooth replacement. If you get conventional dentures without implant support, for example, you’ll need to adopt a new routine including dietary changes, cleaning your prosthetic, and storing it at night. 

With dental implants, your routine doesn’t change very much. In fact, taking care of dental implants is a lot like caring for your natural teeth. You should:

  • Brush twice daily 
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Use a less abrasive toothpaste
  • Use an implant-specific floss or oral irrigator
  • Avoid biting down on solid objects 

If you have implant overdentures, your routine will change a bit more since the device is removable. The Century Park Dental Care team teaches you to care for them effectively.
