Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small metal posts that provide a foundation for oral prosthetics like crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures. 

They’re unique in that they serve as replacement tooth roots. Dr. Sajadi carefully places them into your jawbone during a quick, painless outpatient procedure.

Following the procedure, your bone grows around each implant, fusing them in place. Because dental implants connect to your jaw, they make it easier to bite, chew, and speak. 

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental implants provide various advantages, including:

  • Improved oral health
  • Easier biting and chewing
  • Increased confidence
  • Durability
  • Improved speech

Dental implants are also easy to care for. They don’t require adhesives or overnight soaking. If you brush and floss daily, your dental implants will stay in great shape for years.

What are the types of dental implants?

At Edgewater Dental, Dr. Sajadi offers several types of dental implants, including:

Mini-implants

Mini-implants are much smaller in diameter than traditional dental implants. Known as narrow-body implants, mini implants have a screw instead of a post. Dr. Sajadi inserts them through your gum tissue and into the jawbone. This prevents the need for stitches, speeding up your body’s natural healing process.

Multi implants

If you’re missing several teeth, you’re more likely to experience gum recession, bone decay, and problems chewing and speaking. Multi implants are metal posts used to replace a group of missing teeth. Dr. Sajadi places them into your gum line during a quick outpatient procedure. The result is a natural-looking smile.

Single tooth implants

If you’re missing only one tooth, Dr. Sajadi might recommend a single tooth implant. A single tooth implant replaces a gap in your smile without damaging your neighboring teeth. Dr. Sajadi places one metal post into your jaw and attaches a ceramic crown. The crown functions just like your natural tooth, allowing you to bite and chew comfortably.

All-on-X implants

If you’re missing all of your permanent teeth, Dr. Sajadi might recommend All-on-X implants. All-on-X implants replace an entire arch of missing teeth using just four or six implants. The number of implants you receive depends on your oral health history and goals for treatment.

Implant revisions

If you’ve received dental implants in the past, but they failed due to poor placement, Dr. Sajadi might recommend an implant revision procedure. This type of treatment fixes failed implants.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

To determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Sajadi conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks about your goals for treatment. If you’re missing one or several permanent teeth, you’ll likely qualify. 

At Edgewater Dental, Dr. Sajadi offers dental implants using teeth in a day. This means you can achieve a fully-restored smile in just one treatment session.
