Dental Implants: Restore Your Smile

Dental ImplantsDental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that their facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for replacement teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.

Procedure

Dental ImplantsDental implants act as tooth root substitutes that are placed into the jawbone. Small posts are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for crowns, bridges and dentures.

After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a digital scan of the implant site will be done and sent to the lab where the replacement tooth will be made. Following this, posts or attachments can be connected to the implant. The tooth is then placed on the post or attachment. The entire procedure usually takes four to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.
