Do I Need Dental Implants?

Do you have a missing tooth or teeth? If so, dental implants may be the right choice for you.

Dental implants provide a treatment option that fills the gaps left by missing teeth for a fuller smile. This option restores patients smiles and looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Dental Implant Benefits

Dental implants can offer many benefits to patients. Dental implants:

  • Provide durability
  • Fill gaps between teeth
  • Decrease oral health problems
  • Help prevent bone loss
  • Last for years
  • Restore tooth function
  • Look and feel natural

Dental implants can also be utilized in further treatment. If you need dental bridges for consecutive missing teeth or dentures for full arches of missing teeth, dental implants can secure these options.

The Dental Implant Process

Prior to treatment, Dr. Ami Barakat will assess your oral health to determine if dental implants can be supported by your bone tissue. He will also discuss your budget and goals with you to see if dental implants are a match.

Dental implants are made of titanium posts which are surgically implanted into the gap left by a missing tooth. After implantation, the post is allowed a period of 3 to 6 months to heal and fuse to bone tissue. A dental crown is then attached to the implant, protecting the post and restoring the tooth.

Many patients often forget that they have a dental implant because they are so secure and durable. The dental crowns that cover dental implants are color matched for a natural look.
