Dental implants explained
Services such as the placement and restoration of dental implants are offered at New Health Dental for patients who want an alternative to dentures and dental bridges. Implants are titanium posts that a dentist can use to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or even a whole arch of teeth. These posts are placed into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery and are restored in several different ways. They can be restored with:
- Dental crowns to replace a single tooth
- Dental bridges to replace several teeth in a row
- Dentures to replace an entire arch of teeth
Dental implants are so versatile and are a wonderful solution for patients who want a more permanent way of addressing tooth loss. We encourage patients to consider dental implants whenever possible, so they can enjoy a lifelong solution to their tooth loss.

What are the benefits of using dental implants for tooth replacement?
When patients are considering their options for tooth replacement, they often can choose between dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. All of these are great options, depending on the needs of the patient. However, many patients love the idea of having a permanent replacement with dental implants. Dental implants have several advantages over the alternatives. They are:
- Easy to care for
When patients are interested in dental implants and want to find out if they are a good candidate, they can schedule a consultation appointment with our team of professionals to discuss this treatment.
What is the process of obtaining a dental implant?
The entire process begins with a consultation appointment to determine if this is the most effective way of replacing missing teeth for a patient. An evaluation is performed which includes a physical examination as well as x-rays to check the amount of bone in the jaw. Once patients decide implants are right for them, they book their oral surgery. One of our surgical associates performs a procedure during which a hole is strategically made in the bone of the jaw and then the implant is put in place. The gum tissue is sutured so it can heal while the process of osseointegration fuses the bone around the implant, giving it the stability and strength it needs to function at its best. Once complete, the dental implant is restored in the manner previously discussed by the patient. This may be done with a dental crown, a dental bridge, or a denture, depending on the specific needs of the patient.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
The best candidates for implants are patients who have enough jawbone structure to ensure successful implantation. The implants require there to be enough bone to stimulate the process of osseointegration. This is essential to keep the implant firmly in place. Osseointegration is the natural growth of bone that forms around the implant, making it firm and allowing it to be the, strong foundation necessary to support the restoration.
