What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are a tooth replacement option. There are 3 parts to a dental implant. The base of an implant is made of titanium in which a screw is inserted into the jawbone by the dentist. 

Titanium is a biocompatible material. The screw is left there for some time to allow the area around it to heal. From there, a metal post is attached which provides the foundation for the crown. 

Once the area is properly healed, the gum tissue is uncovered and an artificial tooth is placed upon it.

Since titanium is a biocompatible material, the jawbone grows around the implant and covers it. It becomes a part of the jawbone which makes it extremely strong.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a number of advantages and have quickly become one of the most popular alternatives for missing tooth replacement. Here’s a quick list of the biggest advantages of dental implants:

Better appearance — Dental implants help in improving your appearance. If a tooth is missing, the jawbone may shrink which makes you look older. Implants offer a complete replacement for the root as well as the crown which is not the case with other tooth replacement options.

Comfortable — These are much more comfortable as compared to partial or full dentures. 

Speech improvement — If your dentures are ill-fitting, they slip around the mouth leading to tense facial muscles. This may result in slurred or mumbling speech or clicking noises.

You  can eat anything — A patient with excellent quality dentures has an eating efficiency of around 20% compared to someone with natural teeth. An implant is a perfect replacement for natural teeth which means it can restore your chewing efficiency to the level of natural teeth. You won’t have to think twice about eating anything with a dental implant.

Types of Dental Implants We Offer

We offer all the options you need to restore your natural appearance. Here’s a list of the common dental implant options:

Single Dental Implant — A single dental implant is used for filling the gap left by a single missing tooth.

Implant Supported Bridge — When a whole row of teeth is missing and has to be replaced, multiple implants are used to provide support to the bridge for the whole row.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no standard cost of dental implants as every case is different and the cost depends on the exact treatment plan. Also, the cost will vary with the number of implants one needs. On average, a single implant may cost anywhere from $2,000-$7,000.

No, it’s not painful and it feels and works like a natural tooth. Technology has made the whole process as pain free as possible.

The average life of a dental implant is around 25 years though they may last a lifetime with proper brushing and flossing. A crown may need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years.

There is nothing better than an implant when it comes to various tooth replacement options. It helps you restore your original appearance and smile, and gives you your natural chewing ability back.


The only major downside to a dental implant is the cost compared to alternatives but the alternatives don’t work as well as a near natural tooth.


An implant is a much better option as it does not require other teeth to be damaged. On the other hand, a bridge requires chipping both the teeth on the sides to provide proper support for the crown.

In most cases, you will have to wait for 2 to 3 months after extraction. If you have good oral health and there is no problem with jawbone density, it may also be placed earlier.
