Dental implants are a popular choice for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Dublin, California practice, StarBrite Dental, offers this and other alternative options for replacing missing teeth. Below are some of the more commonly asked questions regarding dental implants.

What is a dental implant?

Drs. Munira Lokhandwala and Maryum Tariq describe the dental implant as replacement for a tooth root. It is made of titanium. Titanium is biocompatible with the body and can act as a foundation for a restoration to replace missing teeth.

What restorations are used over dental implants?

The more common restorations utilized on the abutment of a dental implant include dental crowns, dental bridges, and full dentures. The versatility of the dental implant is another reason it is highly recommended for many of our patients.

What can I expect from dental implant placement?

Placing a dental implant is an oral surgery during which the dental restoration is placed into the bone of the jaw. This stimulates bone growth through osseointegration, allowing the implant to become a solid part of the bone. This is what makes the dental implant incredibly strong and durable. Patients need to allow several weeks for the implant to heal before restoring it.

How long does a dental implant last?

Patients who take good care of their smile and avoid the development of periodontal disease will often enjoy their dental implants for a lifetime!
