Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a stable, functional means to replace missing or damaged teeth permanently. Dental implants work well, because they are permanently affixed to your jawbone, thus providing secure support for the artificial teeth that are mounted onto them. Dental implants provide a more natural fit than conventional bridges or dentures.

Traditional bridges are attached to teeth on either side of the empty spaces that are left by the missing tooth. Dental implants do not need to be attached to adjacent teeth, so your other teeth will not be affected. This offers a significant improvement over other teeth replacement options.

In order to qualify for implants, you must have healthy gums and sufficient dense jaw bone tissue to support the implant. Ongoing self-care to ensure optimal dental hygiene and regular dental visits are essential to the long-term success of dental implants.

The process for receiving dental implants is usually an outpatient surgery that requires the following steps:

  • Initial consultation
  • Complete any prerequisite procedures, including removing the damaged tooth
  • Surgical placement of the implant post
  • Placement of connector post and replacement tooth (crown)
  • After your jawbone is healed, dental implant metal posts are placed in your jawbone
