Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Many adults think dental implants are the next best thing to having natural teeth, and they might be right. When you lose your teeth due to tooth decay, a disease, or a traumatic injury, your self-esteem and smile can take a hit. Dental implants are strong, stable teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

A dental implant is a metal post or frame that a dentist surgically attaches to your jawbone, beneath your gums. The metal post becomes a permanent base for a replacement tooth. This screw-like post is like the root of your new tooth. Once the post is in place and your mouth fully heals, a process that typically takes a few weeks, Dr. Bajaj mounts the new replacement tooth (crown) on the post permanently. The implants fuse to your jawbone, so they are strong, stable, and don’t shift in your mouth.

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

Why do some patients love dental implants?

In addition to performing, looking, and feeling like your natural teeth, dental implants offer the following ten benefits:

  • Are a permanent, lifelong solution
  • Are a cost-effective way to replace missing teeth
  • Help retain your natural face shape and smile
  • Preserve your healthy jawbone
  • Help prevent decay of surrounding natural teeth
  • Help you talk casually and without worry
  • Don't fall out or move around in your mouth
  • Are strong and durable for chewing foods you love
  • Aren't wide open to cavities with an implanted crown
  • Offer a proven, predictable outcome for tooth repair

Can someone like me get dental implants?

Whether you're missing one tooth or multiple teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for dental implants. Your jaw must be finished growing, and your gums must be healthy. Dental implants are not for children but are an excellent solution for adults.

You could also be a great implant candidate if you are ready to replace a bridge or partial dentures, or if you’re tired of having dentures that slip. Men or women who desire a more durable, long-term answer to dental work problems may be suitable candidates for implants. Get all your questions about dental implants answered during a consultation with Dr. Bajaj. Implant treatment might be right for you.

It's time to take the first step toward a more confident smile and a more confident you. Request an appointment online or call Charlotte Dental Esthetics today.
