Dental implants represent one of the ways that dental professionals can replace irreparably broken, decayed, or otherwise severely damaged teeth. The implant is a small cylindrical-shaped piece of biocompatible metal or ceramic, such as titanium or zirconia. Implants are placed in the jawbone. Since they are made from biocompatible materials, they fuse or join naturally to the surrounding bony tissue and become a part of the jaw.
At Martin Orro DDS, Dr. Orro will attach the prosthetic or the part of the tooth visible above the gum line to the implant secured in the jaw. Once the new tooth is attached, the implant will support it while functioning like a tooth root. Since it is “rooted” in the bone like a natural tooth, it supports utmost and sustained comfort and function. The jawbone also remains strong. Damaging bone loss is avoided because the bony tissue continues to get stimulation from chewing and other functions of the teeth attached to the jaw (through the implant).
One implant may be applied to replace a single tooth. Or, as few as four implants can be positioned to support all prosthetics in the upper/lower arches (as a full implant-retained denture or “overdenture”).

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
