The Keys to Long-Lasting Dental Implants

A dental implant essentially has two parts: a titanium screw that acts as the tooth “root” and a false tooth that is placed on top of the root. This can be made from a number of different materials, but it is usually a porcelain crown. Our dentists will help you find the dental implant option that is right for you.

Dental implants are as sturdy and long-lasting as they are for two main reasons:

  • Osseointegration: Our dentists will place the titanium screws in your jawbone during a safe, commonly performed procedure. What follows is a somewhat lengthy, but incredibly important process known as “osseointegration.” Your jawbone will accept and integrate the screws, fusing with them and making them a part of the body. This process strongly anchors the dental implants and provides them with a steady foundation.
  • High-quality materials: Dental implants are, generally speaking, made of two materials: titanium and porcelain. These are strong, sturdy tools, and they’re designed to last decades.

The skill and experience of your dentist also helps in making your dental implant experience a successful one.

Once our Summerlin dentists have completed the process of placing your dental implants, you merely have to maintain them with sound dental hygiene practices. You don’t have to dramatically change your diet or your lifestyle.

If you provide your dental implants with the proper care and maintenance, they might last you the rest of your life.
