Dental Implants FAQ
Spokane, WA

Diagram of dental implant in lower jawUnfortunately, more than 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. If you fall into this group, you may be wondering what to do next. There are several options for you to choose from, and some variables to consider. At Dynamic Dental Care, we offer dental implant-supported restorations, because of their many benefits. In recent years, dental implants have become the industry-leading standard for tooth loss treatment.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants consist of three major parts:
•  The implant screw – A small screw, usually made from titanium, that serves as the root of the prosthesis. The implant screw is surgically embedded into the jawbone and fuses to the bone during the process of osseointegration.
•  The abutment – A support structure, made from titanium or zirconia, that links the implant screw to the restoration. Zirconia abutments have become increasingly popular because of superior esthetics. The abutment is typically placed after osseointegration is complete. The abutment cannot be placed until your jawbone is strong enough to support a restoration. However, the abutment can be placed at the same time as the implant screw in certain circumstances.
•  The restoration – A prosthesis, typically made from porcelain or zirconia, that fills the place of a missing tooth. The prosthesis is fabricated in a dental laboratory using an impression of your mouth. These days, dental implants can support a wide variety of restorations, from a single crown to an entire arch of missing teeth.

How to Prepare for Dental Implants

Because dental implants require one or more surgical procedures, it is important to take the proper steps of preparation.

During your consultation visit, Dr. Huish will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. This includes a comprehensive dental exam with X-rays, 3D imaging, and models of your teeth and mouth. Next, we will develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your situation. Your treatment plan will focus on the condition of your jawbone, and the number of teeth that need to be replaced. To receive a dental implant, you must have a structurally sound jawbone. If your bone is too thin or too soft, you may need to undergo a bone graft before implantation is possible. The success of your implant depends on osseointegration, which requires adequate bone.

Be sure to tell Dr. Huish about any medical conditions, including heart conditions, orthopedic implants, and any medications you may be taking. These factors need to be addressed before surgery as they may affect the success of your implant.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have become the gold standard for tooth loss treatment because of their many benefits, some of which include:
•  Superior esthetics – Implant-supported restorations look and feel just like your natural teeth. Porcelain and zirconia can be shaped to match the texture of natural teeth and possess the same light-reflecting properties as enamel.
•  Superior Function – Implant-supported restorations will function just like your natural teeth. Unlike removable restorations, implants will never slip while you chew, speak, or laugh. Because the screw becomes a part of your bone, you are also able to eat your favorite foods with confidence and comfort.
•  Superior comfort – Implants also eliminate the discomfort associated with partial and full dentures.
•  Superior oral health – Implants are the only restoration that prevents future bone loss and encourages better oral health. Also, the restoration does not affect your surrounding teeth.
