A Better Smile with Dental Implants

dental implants

The best dental option that’s available to replace a tooth that’s missing.

Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a strong and safe metal, which the bone will effectively integrate around through a process called osseointegration. Dental implants serve as an artificial root to which a new crown is bonded. They can also be placed for a dentures or partials to snap onto for a more secure fit.

Why Implants?

Dental implants offer a great long-term solution for replacing one or multiple missing teeth. A dental implant feels natural and is cared for just like a natural tooth. There is no need to alter a healthy adjacent tooth as is done with bridges and partials. Dental implants provide great structural support and can last a lifetime.

Implant Process

The dental implant procedure typically involves three steps:

  1. Implant insertion
  2. Healing of the jawbone
  3. Attachment of new tooth or teeth

These steps from start to finish typically take about 4-6 months. The healing period allows the bone to attach to the titanium post. This creates a very strong, stable base for the future crown.

The recovery time is very minimal. Most patients only require local anesthetic, but sedation is an option.
