Restore Your Smile's Look 

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. It can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. 

The implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone and then bonds with the natural bone to serve as an anchor for a tooth replacement. This can help to prevent surrounding teeth from shifting, resolve bite issues or jaw joint pain, and help restore facial tissues and appearance.

Dental implants can help you enjoy the comfort and confidence of a full set of teeth without worrying about inconvenience or irritation.

Why replace missing teeth?

If a tooth is missing, the teeth surrounding the gap may begin to shift out of place. The jaw bone around the area may also begin to deteriorate, resulting in facial collapse or negatively impacting your ability to eat and talk.

The Dental Implant Process

The dental implant procedure requires a dental implant (titanium screw) and a tooth replacement. Your dentist begins by placing the implant into your jaw bone below the gum tissue. As the tissue heals, the implant bonds with the bone and attaches to the gums.

Once the healing is complete, generally three to six months afterwards, patients return to complete the process. 

At this appointment, your dentist attaches a tooth replacement, such as a dental crown, bridge or denture, to the implant to create the look and function of a natural tooth.
