If you have a missing tooth, need a tooth removed and replaced, or have several missing teeth, dental implants may be the right option for you. Depending on the integrity of your jaw bone, it may be possible to install permanent replacement synthetic “teeth,” which act just as your natural teeth do. Let’s delve into the details of the procedure, and the benefits of dental implants.

The Procedure

Dental implants are intended to replace missing teeth with artificial teeth that serve the same purpose. To start, your oral surgeon will analyze the integrity of your jawbone (since it’s necessary to have a healthy jawbone that’s thick enough to accept a dental implant). If you have a jawbone that’s too thin, you may be able to have a bone graft to make your jawbone sufficient to hold a dental implant.

During oral implant surgery, a small incision will be made in the jawbone, and a screw is placed into the hole. This screw is then capped with an artificial tooth that’s designed to match your natural teeth. Dental implants are permanent, and require the same amount of care as your other teeth.

The Benefits

There are so many reasons to get dental implants. Most notably, implants are strong, easy to care for, and they make your smile look great!


Artificial teeth are as strong, if not stronger than your regular teeth. You won’t have to worry about tooth damage as long as you properly care for your new teeth.


Simply brush and floss your new teeth just as you would with your natural teeth. Be sure to schedule regular visits to the dentist for a thorough cleaning. Also, follow the care procedures that your oral surgeon provides just after you receive your implants.


Dental implants look just the same as your normal teeth, and they can be colored to match your pearly whites. For a full, beautiful smile, you can’t beat a dental implant procedure.
