Dental implants

A dental implant, made from tiny titanium posts and placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing, provides a strong foundation to replace a lost tooth. You’ll be able to chew that steak and smile with confidence; your facial contours are also preserved. Dental implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.

If an implant is an option for your case, we’ll refer you to a specialist. Our team will work with the specialist and you very closely to help make your procedure a success.

The placement of dental implants usually involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums bonding with the jawbone. You’ll probably wear a temporary prosthesis and eat a soft diet during this time.

After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, your specialist will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. At this time, we’ll make the impressions that will be used to create your implant prosthesis. The implant prosthesis may be a single crown, a bridge, removable appliance (the implant helps to stabilize the removable partial denture or complete denture). Posts or attachments will be connected to your implants and the replacement teeth are then attached to the posts.
