Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?


If you’ve lost any of your teeth, dental implants involve the implementation of titanium posts into your jawbone by your dentist to be a foundation for the restoration process. This process ultimately allows you to regain function in your mouth. Dental implants also help maintain the natural alignment of your surrounding teeth. 


Portal Family Dentistry & Orthodontics provides dental implants into the jawbone where your teeth are missing. The bone below the gums is bonded with implanted posts to create a strong foundation for restorations, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. 


Dental implants help maintain the natural alignment of your surrounding teeth. They’re comfortable, sturdy, reliable, and require very little care.


If you need implants, the practice fully addresses your specific needs and dental history, ensuring that your procedure produces a successful outcome.

Are dental implants right for me?

Dental implants are a great option for anyone looking to permanently replace missing teeth. They function as permanent teeth without needing removal for cleaning, eating, or maintenance, making them an excellent option for replacing teeth. They mimic the function of a natural tooth, so you notice very little difference once the implant process is complete.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer many benefits if you’re missing teeth. They include:


  • Maintenance of your mouth and jaw structure
  • Improved chewing
  • Prevention of teeth shifting

To get dental implants, you must have sufficient jawbone to support the implants. If not, bone grafting may be recommended before your procedure.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants usually last decades and even a lifetime. That’s why they’re a highly preferred procedure. 


It’s possible for your teeth to shift, which may cause minor adjustments at some point, although it’s rare.


Regular checkups at Portal Family Dentistry & Orthodontics help you maintain your oral health so you can continue to experience the excellent benefits that dental implants offer.
