Frequently asked questions about dental implants, your questions answered.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are prosthetics made of titanium alloy that replace the root of the tooth and support a prosthesis. These prosthetics, once anchored to a healthy bone, provide reliable stability for the patient’s new teeth. Implants are suitable for patients who have lost one, several, or all of their teeth. They contribute towards improving your physical appearance and ability to chew.

Temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) is a condition of the of the jaw muscles, temporomandibular joints, and nerves commonly associated with chronic facial pain. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located in front of your ear. It’s where the temporal bones and mandible (lower jaw) come together. We are born with two temporomandibular joints, one on each side of our skull. Because of the position of these joints, TMD commonly causes pain in the lower jaw, face, neck and back.

The loss of your teeth can have negative effects on your ability to eat, your bite, facial structure and self-confidence. Since your teeth provide structure and support to your face, tooth loss can result in the sagging of your facial structure, sometimes called a sunken face and make you appear older than you are. It is important that missing teeth get replaced as soon as possible.

Your teeth were intended to last a lifetime, but sometimes they don’t. Making the decision to replace missing teeth is important to your general health and to the health of your other teeth. Not only do you lose the ability to chew when a tooth is lost, missing teeth can cause other teeth to be lost, crowded and create future problems.
