Dental Implants

A dental implant is a replacement for the natural root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns, bridgework, or dentures.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium rods that are surgically placed underneath the gums and into the jaw bone. 

Over the course of about three to six months, the implant fuses naturally with the bone. This creates a permanent anchor or abutment for crowns, bridge work and other prosthetic appliances. 

Dental implants can last a lifetime, so they’re a viable alternative to many other temporary dental procedures.

Why do you need Dental Implants?

You may need a dental implant if you are completely missing a tooth and want to avoid compromising other teeth with a dental bridge. Many patients choose dental implants because they hold their dentures securely in place. This procedure is ideal for patients who want a permanent solution to missing dentition. Dental implant surgery is ideal for most healthy patients.

What happens during the procedure for Dental Implants?

First, we will have a full consultation with you to discuss implant options and protocol. You will come into the office and receive anesthetic of your choice to make the procedure more comfortable. The implant will be surgically placed underneath the gums and sutures placed. Over the next three to six months, the implant will fuse with the bone and create a secure abutment for crowns, bridges and dentures. Once the implant has healed, you can be fitted for whichever restoration best fits your needs. Dental implant surgery is done efficiently and easily in-office to promote a vital alternative to other procedures.
