Do you have one or more missing teeth? Would you like to have something permanent where there is now a space? If so, a dental implant may be the solution.
A dental implant is an artificial replacement tooth root- made of titanium- that fills the space where your natural tooth used to be. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
*Improved oral health
Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself!
What can I expect? The implant process is lengthy (4+ months) but much of the time is for healing and allowing new bone to grown in your jaw. Dental implant surgery begins with placing a titanium implant cylinder into the socket of your missing tooth, anchoring it securely into your jawbone. After a healing period of several months, an abutment- a small connector post which will hold the new tooth- is placed. A replacement tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment. This crown will look, feel, and function just like your own natural teeth.
