Dental Implants

Dental implants are the number-one solution to replacing missing teeth for most of our patients.

Implants are permanently affixed to the bone in your jaw, providing a secure and natural-feeling solution.

The dental implant procedure begins with an x-ray of your teeth and jaw, primarily to determine whether you have sufficient bone density in your jaw to support an implant. If you don’t, there are a range of solutions available such as a bone graft.

Your dentist will embed a small titanium screw into your jaw. They will then allow the gum and jaw bone to heal, during which time the implant will fuse with the surrounding bone. This process typically takes between 3 and 6 months, but it can happen faster for some patients.

Once the implant is securely in place, your dentist will attach a high-quality crown to it, completing the process. Not only do implants have cosmetic benefits, but they also encourage the growth of new bone in the jaw.

When we lose a tooth, the surrounding bone begins to break down. With a dental implant, you can prevent or even reverse the effects of bone loss. Dental implants are also highly durable, lasting upwards of 20 years with the proper care.

We can use dental implants to restore one or more missing teeth, replace entire arches, or provide additional security for other restorations like bridges and dentures.
