Dental Implants
 

Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.   At our office, we have assembled a team of specialists and restorative dentists to facilite your best care.

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary.  This phase of the implant process is handled by a very reputable specialist.

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have a temporary  installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once this is placed a photo or an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration.  Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look great, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
