What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.

The Dental Implant Process

Initial Consultation: Would dental implants be a good fit for your situation? Do you need any preparatory procedures first? We’ll discuss all of these details and more so you know what to expect.

Placement Surgery: If you decide to proceed, our team will handle the placement surgery ourselves, meaning you won’t have to deal with a referral to an outside specialist.

Healing Period: Over the next four to six months, the implants will meld with your jawbone to form the foundation of your new teeth.

Delivery of Final Restoration(s): Following this healing period, our dentists will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. This might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.
