Dental Implants Q&A

What do dental implants do?

Dental implants provide people who have lost one or more teeth the opportunity to restore their smiles. Specifically, dental implants — durable posts made from titanium — act as artificial tooth roots.

To reap their benefits, schedule an appointment at Northwoods Dental Group. After a consultation, your team surgically places the dental implants into your jaw. Over time, they heal and fuse with your natural jawbone.

Once healed, the practice can attach crowns, bridges, and implant-retained full and partial dentures to your dental implants.

Why should I consider dental implants?

Dental implants offer diverse benefits that make them a particularly attractive option. Such benefits include:


Dental implants anchor artificial teeth in place. Unlike other options, like traditional dentures, dental implant restorations feel more natural. Dental implant restorations also make for easier talking and eating.


Dental implants fuse with your bone and are extremely durable. If you brush, floss, and regularly visit the practice for checkups, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Improved oral health

Dental implants also improve your oral health. They prevent teeth shifting, bad bites, and jawbone loss. In addition, you can floss between them. 

Are dental implants right for me?

Dental implants may be right for you if you’ve lost teeth due to injury, diseases such as periodontal disease, decay, or infection. Dental implants may also be right for you if you want to replace a badly damaged tooth. 

Dental implants may not be right for you at this time if:

  • You have unhealthy gums
  • Your jawbone isn’t strong enough to hold the implants in place
  • You’re a heavy smoker
  • You live with diabetes, heart disease, or other another uncontrolled chronic condition
  • You’re receiving radiation for cancer in the neck or head area

If you need dental implants, but Northwoods Dental Group determines your gums or jaw isn’t yet ready, your team may recommend a bone graft or sinus lift.

Dental implants are a long-term investment in your oral health and wellness. If you’re interested in learning more, schedule a consultation with Northwoods Dental Group online or over the phone today.
