What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of an artificial root, typically made of titanium, that is surgically positioned into your jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, replacement teeth can be mounted to them. As they fuse to your jawbone, dental implants provide stable support for artificial teeth, ensuring that crowns, dentures, and bridges stay securely in place in your mouth—a significant benefit when eating and speaking.

Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a multitude of advantages that extend beyond just aesthetics. These include:

  • Improved oral health: By filling in the gaps left by missing teeth, dental implants prevent other teeth from shifting out of place, reducing the risk of oral health complications.
  • Enhanced comfort: Their stability makes dental implants feel more natural and comfortable than traditional dentures.
  • Better speech: Unlike dentures that can slip within the mouth and affect speech, dental implants let you speak without the worry of your teeth slipping.
  • Durability: Dental implants are designed to be long-lasting and with the proper care, can even last a lifetime.

Bone retention: Dental implants provide a unique advantage as they seamlessly fuse with the jawbone. This integration not only stimulates preservation of the bone but also prevents deterioration.

Types Of Dental Implants

At Sean Rhee, DDS, we provide a variety of dental implant solutions designed to cater to unique dental conditions and individual patient needs. Depending on your specific dental requirements, we may recommend one of the below options.

Single Implant

This is the perfect solution when you’re looking to replace a single missing tooth. A single implant involves the placement of a titanium root into your jawbone, which, over time, integrates with your bone to provide a strong base for the crown. A custom-made crown is then affixed to this implant, replicating your natural tooth’s appearance and function.

Implant-Supported Bridge

An implant-supported bridge can be an excellent option if you have several missing teeth next to each other. Unlike traditional bridges that depend on surrounding teeth for support, implant-supported bridges are anchored on dental implants. Usually, an implant is placed at each end of the gap, and these implants hold the bridge in place. This method prevents the need for altering healthy adjacent teeth, which is often required for conventional dental bridges.

By choosing the right type of implant, you can ensure seamless integration with your existing teeth, resulting in a natural-looking and fully functional set of teeth. Our team is committed to helping you select the best dental implant solution to restore the form and function of your smile.

Why Choose A Periodontist For Your Implant Procedure?

Periodontists like Dr. Rhee specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease and are highly trained in placing dental implants. They understand the complexity of bone, tissue, muscles, and nerves, which is critical in ensuring the success of the dental implant procedure. Choosing a periodontist for your dental implant treatment ensures you receive the highest level of care.
