Having a missing tooth or teeth can disrupt your quality of life, cause alignment problems, prevent you from eating, and be an infection risk.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a replacement tooth root made of titanium surgically placed it in your jaw. Implants stimulate and strengthen the bone of your jaw. When it’s ready, it can hold a new tooth crown or support dentures or bridges.
When done correctly, the implant procedure takes a few appointments, which include:
Exam: After an exam, we’ll use advanced diagnostic technology, to ensure your jawbone can support an implant. These images will also help us plan and execute the oral surgery.
Implant Surgery: During this procedure, you will require local anesthesia and once you are comfortably numb, we’ll place your dental implant into your jaw.
Recovery: Recovery usually takes a couple weeks to let your jawbone grow around your implants. The goal is a stable, secure base for crowns, dentures, or bridges.
Restoration: Once the jawbone has healed, you’ll come in and get a customized tooth crown or appliance attached to your implants. We ensure they look and feel just right in your mouth and align with your other teeth.
