Many things can damage teeth. From accidentally biting down on a metal utensil to natural oral wear and tear, resolving tooth chipping, cracking, and decay protects your jaw and smile.

Dental implants offer long-term solutions for chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth, restoring patients’ oral health. Technology allows artificial teeth to blend in naturally with your smile and restore the full functionality of your jaw and bite.

Dr. Lei Shi and his team of excellent dental assistants offer patients effective and efficient dental implant surgery to restore their tooth functionality and daily comfort. Our team can help you reclaim your smile. Call today to set up a new patient consultation.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial replacements for your damaged natural teeth designed to anchor into your jawbone and blend in with the healthy parts of your smile. Titanium implants not only restore your smile’s look but improve your bite and jaw health.

With proper care, dental implants can last 15 years or longer. Furthermore, the 10-year success rate of implants is 97%, which is higher than other teeth-replacement solutions. While the surgical and healing process is slightly longer than other methods, dental implants can completely rejuvenate your confidence and maintain your oral health long-term.

How Do Dental Implants Differ From Other Decay Solutions

Many patients inquiring about this option want to know other treatment options. However, a quick comparison between dental implants and other solutions demonstrates the superiority of this treatment.

If you’re investigating dental implants, you may have learned about dental bridges. While dentists can implement bridges without invasive surgeries, these false teeth can cause other problems for your tooth and jaw structure. Since bridges use other teeth to stay in place, they can displace healthy oral structures and enable jaw decay.

Many older folks opt for dentures instead of permanent solutions. Although dentures can quickly restore the fullness of your smile, they require frequent replacements and can be uncomfortable. Many dentists actually recommend securing dentures with dental implants.

Dental Implant Surgery Process

Dental implant surgery is a multi-step process that permanently resolves your broken or decayed teeth.

First, our dental professionals inspect your jawbone and gums to ensure there is enough remaining structure for the implant. Next, we’ll drill a hole into your jawbone and place the titanium anchor that will attach to your dental implant. You’ll now need to wait a few weeks to a few months, depending on your case, to allow the anchor to heal and fuse with your bone.

At your second appointment, we permanently attach the custom-made implant to the fused anchor. This step fully restores your smile and teeth functionality.

Conditions That Complicate the Implant Process

You may not qualify for implants if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Chronic smoking
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Severe gum disease
  • Bone density issues
