Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium screw placed into the jawbone to support a dental prosthesis, such as a crown, bridge or denture. It serves as an artificial tooth root, providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth that look and function just like real ones. 

Dental implants can help you feel more confident in your appearance by restoring your smile to its former appearance. They also help reduce the onset of facial sagging.

Dental implants provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth, as they are a good option to help you speak and chew normally again.

The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth

If a tooth is missing, the teeth surrounding the gap may begin to shift out of place and cause misalignment issues. The jawbone around the area may also begin to deteriorate, resulting in facial collapse and difficulties eating and talking.

The Dental Implant Process

1. Initial Consultation With the Dentist: During this consultation, our dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. If you are, they will discuss the treatment plan and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

2. Surgical Placement of the Implant: This procedure is typically done under local anesthesia and involves inserting a titanium post into the bone to serve as a foundation for the artificial tooth.

3. Healing Process & Placement of the Restoration: Following the surgical placement, a healing period is necessary to allow the implant to fuse with the jawbone. This generally lasts between three and six months. Once healing is complete, a crown, bridge or denture will be fitted on top of the implant to complete the restoration. Note, that the fitting process may add some time, as it may take several sessions to get it just right.
