Dental Implants

Dental implants are the closest thing to Mother Nature we as dentists can give to our patients. Like natural teeth, dental implants are anchored by “titanium roots” that are implanted into the bone and topped by crowns. Implants are used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. Many times the implant can be placed the same day the tooth is removed. If your tooth has been missing for a while it may still be possible to have an implant placed. Dental implants are very safe and are considered the first choice for replacing missing teeth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into your bone to form the “root” for a crown or bridge. Dental implants are very durable, possibly even stronger than the tooth they replaced. The implant will need to heal before the crown or denture can be placed on it. The total time from start to finish for placing and restoring the implant is 6-9 months.

Dental implants may be your solution to:

  • replace one or more teeth

  • provide or increase support for dentures

  • promote chewing comfort

  • boost confidence while smiling, talking and eating

  • improve your psychological health

  • improve aesthetic appearance
