Dental Implants Q & A
What are dental implants?

The purpose of a dental implant is to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The implant is made from a titanium post that acts as a foundation. Dr. Suarez then attaches abutments — or small connecting devices — between the implant and the artificial tooth.
Dental Implants Q & A
What are dental implants?

What is a dental implant bridge?

When several teeth are missing, an implant-supported bridge can help to replace them and restore your smile to a more natural state, in terms of appearance and function.

An implant bridge is made up of the dental implant, abutments, and the artificial teeth. It connects your artificial teeth to the implants and each other, ensuring they all stay in place as a unit.

Bridges are important because missing teeth affect the bone in your jawline, causing the bone to be reabsorbed into the gum tissue. This then allows neighboring teeth to shift and move into the open space. If a bridge is not used, then these teeth are also at risk of being lost.

What are the advantages of a dental implant?

A dental implant is beneficial in many ways, including:

Convenience
A dental implant acts and looks just like a natural tooth. You won’t have any eating restrictions or speech impediments.

Oral health
When a tooth goes missing, the bone underneath degrades over time, which causes nearby teeth to shift out of place. Dental implants help to prevent this while also protecting the bone health of the jawline.

Reliability
Dental implant placement surgery has a success rate of over 95%.

Confidence
It’s almost impossible to tell the difference between implants and natural teeth. You’ll be able to smile confidently and enjoy the appearance of a full, healthy set of teeth.

What happens during a dental implant procedure?

First, Dr. Suarez takes X-rays of your mouth to determine the optimal placement of the implant in your gums and jawline.

He also reviews your medical history and determines if your jawbone is strong enough to support the implant. If not, you may need a bone grafting procedure before placing your implant.

Once the implants are placed, you must wait several months to ensure the implant fuses with your jawbone, a process known as osseointegration. Months later, you return to the office to secure the abutments and artificial teeth to the implant.
