Dental implants are an artificial root that integrates with the bone in the jaw to provide a secure, stable and long-lasting platform for tooth replacement. Because dental implants become part of the jaw, they look and feel like natural teeth. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, to stabilize a denture, or some other reason. When done correctly, and with proper care, dental implants can last a patient’s lifetime. It’s still important to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash when you have implants.
Patients still need routine dental checkups to keep their implants healthy.
