Dental Implants

Dental implants are foundational structures that interface with the jawbone in order to support replacement teeth, crowns, bridges, etc. If you have lost a tooth or teeth, dental implants are a great alternative to bring you the look, feel, function, and comfort of natural teeth once again. Not only do dental implants help patients gain confidence and functionality, they also prevent bone deterioration that can occur when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are helping patients rediscover their smile with confidence, allowing them to stop focusing on their teeth and enjoy their life!

Evaluation for Dental Implants

If you are interested in or confident that implant dentistry is the path for you, we ask that you come in for a special dental examination during which we will discuss and align the right dental procedures and steps based on your specific case.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed in the jawbone where the teeth or tooth is missing. The bone and the titanium bond form a foundation for artificial teeth to be placed.
In most cases, dental implant procedures involve two surgical procedures.

First, dental implants are properly placed in your jawbone. Three to six months later, the implants will bond with the jawbone, forming a strong structure. During this time, you most likely will be able to wear a temporary denture/replacement tooth and eat a soft diet. Meanwhile, your dentist will design the final denture to be placed that will improve function and cosmetic appearance.

Once the implant has bonded, the second phase takes place. During this phase, the surgeon uncovers the implants and attaches a healing collar. Now, the new teeth can be made. First, an impression is taken. Next, posts are connected to the implants followed by the making of the replacement teeth over these posts.

The entire procedure (phases one and two combined) takes six to eight months. During this time, most patients experience little to no disruption of their daily lifestyle.
