Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are tooth and root replacements that include a metal base and ceramic tooth. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement, so it’s not removable like dentures.

With dental implants, Dr. Kupelian and the team customize every single tooth to guarantee a comfortable fit and natural appearance. Dental implants feel and function like your own teeth, which is one of the main reasons they’re the most popular choice for tooth restoration.

Why are dental implants the best tooth replacement option?

Dental implants are individually crafted for you, giving you the most natural and realistic new tooth possible. It’s impossible to glance at dental implants and natural teeth and tell them apart.

Dental implants can also help you stay healthy and youthful-looking. They prevent bone loss in your jaw, which helps you maintain normal facial contours rather than developing a collapsed or sunken look.

Another reason that dental implants are the best tooth replacement option is functionality. You can chew and otherwise use your dental implants exactly like natural teeth. In fact, they’re arguably stronger than natural teeth thanks to the metal tooth root.

What are the different options for dental implants?

You can replace just one tooth, a group of teeth, or all the teeth in the tooth arch using dental implants. Traditional dental implants require a stable shelf of natural jawbone beneath your gums.

When you don’t have enough bone, mini implants could be a good option for you. Mini implants are smaller and don’t require as much support bone, but they’re still stable and fully functional.

If you need multiple tooth replacements, you can have individual replacements for each tooth or opt for an implant-retained bridge where a few dental implants permanently hold a full bridge in place.

How long do dental implants take?

Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements, so it requires some time to properly prepare and acclimate your mouth to the new hardware. In general, it takes around four visits for a single implant and around 8-10 visits for a complete tooth arch replacement.

After the final dental implant installation, patients generally return to work the next day. Even with full arch replacements, patients frequently say that they’re amazed by the ease of recovery and quick return to normal routines.
