Dental Implant

An improved smile can improve your self-confidence and your ability to chew, bite, and speak more easily. A dental implant is the only option for restoring teeth that fuse with the jaw bone and prevent bone loss.

What Are The Benefits of Dental Implants?

They Provide Long-Term Results

Unlike dentures, implants fuse to the jaw bone, making them a long-term solution to tooth loss.

Give You Natural-Looking Teeth

Restorative dentists custom-make crowns to match the size, shape, and color of your other teeth. Since the results look so natural, many people cannot tell which tooth is the implant.

Help To Preserve Bone

A missing tooth can cause the jawbone underneath to resorb over time. As the implant posts fuse to the jaw, they provide the necessary stimulation for healthy chewing. This benefit is only available with dental implants.

Easy Care Routine

No moving parts are involved, and no special rinsing is required. Keep your dental implant healthy by brushing and flossing every day, just like your other teeth, and attending regular dental checkups.

You ask, we answer

The dental implant procedure typically requires at least two or three office visits, depending on the type and number of implants you need. Your oral surgeon will review your health condition, take 3D scans, and discuss your treatment options during the first visit.

It usually takes about one and three hours to perform dental implant surgery. The implant(s) will be placed in the bone beneath the gum tissue after your oral surgeon has administered anesthesia. Your replacement teeth will be securely supported by titanium posts that integrate with your jawbone while you heal.

Your crowns will be attached to your implants using the abutments the day after your initial surgery if your implants are immediate loading. During the healing process of traditional implants, temporary teeth may be provided. Your new smile will be beautiful in either case.
