What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the top choice when it comes to replacing teeth. Their durability, natural look, and feel make them a great treatment for your smile. But what exactly are dental implants?
A dental implant is essentially an artificial root that gets carefully placed into the jawbone to fill the gap left by a missing natural tooth root. A replacement tooth is then securely attached to the implant, serving as a reliable and steady foundation for your new tooth.
Dental implants are crafted from biocompatible materials, ensuring they’re highly compatible with the human body and don’t cause adverse reactions.
Dental implant’s benefits
Implants lead the path to a transformed smile and improved well-being, offering incredible advantages such as:
- A natural smile that boosts your confidence.
- Long-lasting improvements that enhance your overall quality of life.
- Better oral health by maintaining your bone structure and preventing further tooth loss.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Every person is different, and to find out if dental implants are right for you, you’ll need a consultation. However, here are some factors to consider when deciding if dental implants might be suitable:
A strong and dense jawbone is crucial for dental implants to work well. If you’ve experienced bone loss, we can discuss bone grafting to create a better foundation for your implants.
Oral Health Check
Having a healthy mouth, free from gum disease or untreated issues, is essential. Before we proceed with implants, our team will evaluate your oral health and address any concerns that could affect the success of the implants.
Dental implants demand consistent oral care, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. Keeping up with good oral hygiene is vital for the long-term success of your dental implants.
Certain factors like chronic diseases, smoking, and specific medications might impact your eligibility for dental implants. Our team at Monica Neely DDS will conduct a thorough assessment, taking into consideration your overall health and medical history.
Our dental implants process
Here’s what to expect from our implant dentistry process:
- We’ll start by understanding your goals and planning your treatment. We’ll evaluate your jawbone condition for precise implant placement.
- Your dental implant will be placed, and then we’ll give it time to merge with your jawbone.
- After your implant heals, Dr. Neely will craft and attach your custom restoration to create a beautiful and functional smile.
Strong support is crucial for successful dental implants, and a healthy jawbone is essential. We can perform a bone graft to add bone if you need extra support. This strengthens the foundation and sets the stage for the final steps.
The transformation of your smile is within reach, and we’re here to turn it into reality!
Dental Implants FAQs
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. They’re built to be strong and provide long-term function.
Is the dental implant procedure painful?
We typically perform dental implant procedures using local anesthesia, so they’re generally not painful. Any discomfort afterward can usually be managed with pain medication.
How long does the dental implant process take?
The duration of the dental implant process varies based on individual factors. From implant placement to final restoration, it can take several months. The healing and integration period of the implant is an important step that needs time.
Can I eat normally with dental implants?
Absolutely! Dental implants restore your ability to chew normally. Once they’ve fully integrated with your jawbone, you can enjoy a wide variety of foods without any restrictions.
