Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post surgically implanted into the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root, with a crown or denture attached on top. Your tooth has two main parts to it. The tooth that we see and use every day for eating and brushing, and the part that we do not see the root. Whenever our teeth get damaged, we fix them with fillings, crowns, and bridges. But what happens when the root of the tooth gets damaged? In that case, Dr. Yoo focuses on dental implants to replace roots that are too far gone to be repaired.

What are dental implants?

Whenever the root of a tooth becomes too weak or decayed to support the tooth that depends on it, we suggest that you use dental implants to replace the root. Dental implants are a lot like screws, and they support a brand-new fake tooth called a crown.

If your root is damaged, then the tooth it supports is often damaged as well, forcing a whole replacement. If you allow a tooth to go missing, it can cause more damage in your mouth than getting a replacement tooth.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental implants have several advantages that make them our go-to procedure whenever roots are damaged. First, they look exactly like natural teeth, and no one would know if you got the procedure unless you told them. Additionally, the screw-like implant is designed to go directly into your jawbone and fuse with it.

You will not have to worry about the implant coming loose anytime soon! Since it is just like a real tooth, you also will not have to worry about trouble eating or talking with it. You will not have any trouble or any worry that your teeth might slip or get caught in your food.

Dental implants can also work on their own, and you do not need to reduce the teeth on either side of them to make them fit. Due to this, they are also very durable, and if you brush and floss them just like normal teeth, they will last as long as you do.

Getting a Dental Implant

A dental implant is an individual process that is unique entirely to you. We will sit down with you and figure out if you are the perfect candidate for getting a dental implant, and make sure that your mouth is healthy enough for the job. We also talk with you about what implants you can get, and how to take care of your new implant.

The implant is placed into your mouth, typically it is a rod made from titanium that will bond to your jawbone. This process takes about six to twelve weeks to fully bond the rod with your jawbone. Once the bonding is done, a crown is added, and you are ready to go.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants do not require grinding down adjacent teeth like bridges, preserving more natural tooth structure. They prevent bone loss and deterioration in the jaw that occurs with missing teeth. Dental implants stimulate and maintain healthy jawbone density, preventing facial sagging. Dental implants are securely anchored into the jawbone, preventing slippage or movement. They provide optimal stability and function for eating all types of foods without worry. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime without needing to be replaced
