Dental Implants Q & A
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that Dr. Yun implants in your jawbone. Because titanium is biocompatible, it fuses easily with your bone to create a strong anchor for your replacement tooth (the crown).
An implant also serves as the anchor for a bridge, or works together with other implants to keep permanent dentures in place.
At Capital Dental Group, Dr. Yun uses Hiossen® dental implants because they include only the best quality materials and most advanced technology.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
There are a number of dental implant advantages, including:
Dental implants last for many years, maybe even the rest of your life. The titanium post is fused in your jaw permanently, so the only part of the implant that might need replacement is the restoration, like a crown. Crowns last 5-15 years on average.
Dental implants are remarkably durable because they work the same way as healthy, natural teeth. You can bite, chew, and expect full functionality from your dental implants.
Dental implants are far more durable than removable dentures or bridges, so you’ll never have worries about your teeth falling out when you speak or eat.
Although there’s an adjustment period when your dental implants are new, before long they’ll feel completely natural. The implants serve as new roots, while the restorations serve as perfect replicas of your natural teeth. They feel completely comfortable and natural.
Dr. Yun customizes every implant tooth restoration just for you. She uses digital 3D panoramic X-rays and other state-of-the-art technology to create restorations that look exactly like your natural teeth, but healthier and better.
Dr. Yun works with you to determine the ideal appearance, including crown color, to give you a truly beautiful smile.
For all of these reasons and more, dental implants are one of the most popular tooth replacement options today.
How do I care for my new dental implants?
Your new dental implants are a permanent part of your mouth, and for the most part, you treat them the same as natural teeth. It’s important to brush as usual, but you might need to change your flossing routine.
Dr. Yun teaches you flossing techniques that reach the implant post to fully dislodge debris. Of course, continue your regular checkups with Dr. Yun to make sure your dental implants are in great shape.
