A dental implant is a small rod of titanium that is surgically implanted into the mouth to replace the root of a tooth, which serves as the anchor for crowns, bridges, and even a full arch of missing or broken teeth. Implants integrate into the bone and are stabilized during the healing phase to provide a strong foundation for which the new teeth are to be placed. The process usually involves three pieces, a titanium implant, custom abutment, and an anatomically shaped crown that is permanently attached to the custom abutment.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the most natural-looking and functional tooth replacement option for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Many of our patients state that they can not discern which tooth is natural and which tooth is an implant once the process is complete!

Dental implants are permanently fixed into place and don’t move or shift during speech or while eating. Implants are permanently attached and secure. They are cared for just like natural teeth and enable you to eat whatever you want. Patients can be confident that implants look and perform just like natural teeth.

Protect healthy adjacent teeth and long-term dental health

How long will dental implants last?

Implants often last many years when cared for properly. Dental implants are the most effective way to permanently replace missing or broken teeth and our patients can expect their dental implants to last up to 20 years or more if consistently cared for and monitored by

dental professionals. It is very common for patients to keep implants for their entire life. Often the crown or restoration that is placed on the dental implant will need to be replaced before the implant itself does. These restorations undergo more wear and tear than the implant itself and therefore may need to be replaced or repaired every 10-15 years. The most effective way to guarantee that your dental implants and dental implant restorations last as long as possible is to consistently visit Kemp Dental for routine cleanings and exams to have your implants evaluated every year. Our doctors are trained to help you keep your teeth for a lifetime.
