Replace Missing Teeth For a Healthier Smile

A dental implant is a tiny titanium screw that replaces the root of a missing tooth. After it is surgically implanted into your jaw, it can provide a stable base for a tooth replacement such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture.

By taking action to replace missing teeth you'll help keep your remaining teeth in their proper positions and prevent potential jaw pain and bite problems in the future.

Additionally, dental implants fill out your jawline and keep your facial muscles from sagging, helping you maintain your youthful appearance.

Together, implants and tooth replacements look and function like real teeth, allowing you to speak and smile with confidence.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

For a dental implant to be anchored securely, you need to have a strong jaw bone and good oral health. If you have experienced some deterioration of your jaw, a bone graft or sinus lift may be an option to help reinforce the jaw to make dental implants a suitable tooth replacement option for you.

The Dental Implant Process

During your initial consultation, one of our dentists will evaluate your oral health to determine if dental implants are a suitable option for you.

At your next appointment, the dentist will perform the implant surgery. You'll be given local anesthesia to numb the area. A titanium screw will be placed in the bone to serve as a foundation for the artificial tooth. 

The healing process can take three to six months, during which time the implant will integrate with the jaw bone and the tissue will heal. Once healing is complete, you'll return to our office so your permanent dental restoration can be placed.

A bridge, crown, or denture will then be secured to the implant to complete the restoration. During the fitting process, which may take several appointments, your dentist will ensure your prosthetic tooth fits correctly with your dental implant and is a perfect match for your existing teeth.
