Do Dental Implants Feel Natural?

Yes, dental implants do feel natural. They are specifically designed to function and feel like your natural teeth, providing the same stability, comfort, and aesthetics. Over time, they become a seamless part of your mouth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Dental implants offer a lifelike tooth replacement solution, integrating with the jawbone just like a natural tooth root.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant replaces the tooth root if you miss a tooth, whether due to dental trauma or extraction. It comprises a titanium screw and a post that is inserted into the jaw bone. 

Because titanium is biocompatible, it may merge with the bone and form a strong foundation for the screw and repair that will be placed on top. Depending on how many teeth need to be replaced, the restorative element of the implant is a dental crown, bridge, or denture.

What Is A Dental Implant’s Structure?

A dental implant’s construction is designed to look and feel like a natural tooth. A root form, an abutment, and a dental crown are all parts of an implant.

Root form

It is a tiny post, generally made of titanium, that replaces the root of a lost tooth. The depth of screw-like threads surrounding the post varies, affecting where and how much the root shape touches your jawbone. Root shapes come in a variety of diameters and lengths. Your implant dentist will choose a size that is similar to the roots of your lost tooth.


It is a little connection that screws into the top of a dental implant and is known as an abutment. To support a dental crown, the top of the abutment rests slightly above the gum line. A range of angles and sizes of stock abutments are available to fit your dental crown. Custom abutments are available from some implant dentists.

Ceramic crown

It is also known as a “cap”. It replaces the visible section of your tooth above the gumline.

You will not feel the abutment and root form until all implant components are in place. It will feel like a real tooth if you contact the ceramic crown with your finger or tongue.

Dental Implants Benefits

Dental implants, when compared to other tooth replacement solutions, provide by far the greatest advantages. Among the benefits are the following:

  • By stimulating the jawbone, you can avoid early face drooping and wrinkles.
  • Being able to withstand even the hardest, chewiest foods
  • Having a success rate of more than 95%, even after more than ten years
  • Filling up the gap in your grin and keeping the rest of your teeth from moving out of position
  • Allowing you to grin with confidence once again
  • Flossing, brushing, and visiting the dentist regularly for checkups are all it takes to keep your teeth in good shape.

After only a few months with dental implants, they should feel precisely like the rest of your teeth. Ask your dentist whether you’d be a suitable candidate for dental implants if you’re ready to reconstruct your smile with the most cutting-edge treatment available today.
