A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is implanted into your jaw. Dental implants hold replacement teeth, most commonly crowns or bridges, but they can also support dentures.
If you’re self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, dental implants can restore your confidence and your smile.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Singh will evaluate your teeth and mouth to see if dental implants are the right tooth replacement option for you. She takes X-rays and evaluates your jawbone to ensure that it’s dense enough to support the implant.
In some cases, if you don’t have enough bone in your jaw, a bone graft can be performed, moving bone tissue from another part of your body.
Dr. Singh will discuss anesthesia options with you during your first appointment, including oral conscious sedation, where she administers medication that helps you relax and numbs the area but doesn't put you entirely to sleep.
During the procedure, Dr. Singh drills into the jawbone and places a titanium post. Over the next several months, your jawbone will heal, naturally fusing to the titanium post, which also strengthens your jaw. Once you’ve healed, Dr. Singh attaches a connector to the post, which holds and secures your crown, bridge, or dentures.
There are several great reasons to consider dental implants, including:
Implants function, look, and feel like your natural teeth. Even better, they don’t develop cavities! You brush and floss your dental implants just as you would your natural teeth. You’ll maintain regular appointments for checkups and cleanings and to make sure your teeth and gums remain healthy.
