What Are Dental Implants
Simply, dental implants are titanium posts with a false tooth (or teeth) attached on top. They are embedded into the patient’s jawbone in order to create a strong, long-lasting replacement for missing teeth.
An individual crown, bridge, or denture can then be cemented to the portion of the post which protrudes above the gum line. Among the other alternatives to replace missing teeth, dental implants offer the most stability and long-term results.
How dental implants work
During your dental implant consultation in our Dental Office, One of our Implant Specialists will put together a comprehensive treatment plan to ensure the best results for your treatment. The dental implant procedure is a three part process:
1 Placing the implant
The dental implant, usually a cylindrical and/or tapered post made of titanium, is surgically placed into the jawbone.
2 Installing the abutment
Once the implant is settled in, your surgeon will then install a post known as an abutment into the implant.
Finally, a prosthetic tooth will be created and attached to the implants to restore natural functionality and aesthetics.
Why Choose Dental Implants?

Why dental implants are so effective?
Restoring the natural function and aesthetics to your smile, dental implants – available at our dental practice – are tooth-like replacements embedded directly into the jawbone and designed to function as a sturdy anchor for beautiful cosmetic restorations.
With implant dentistry, patients missing one, two, or several teeth no longer need to accept a lifetime of inconvenience and embarrassment. Implant-supported bridges, crowns, and dentures provide the security and function of permanently placed teeth. Dental implants replace missing teeth with ones that look, feel, and perform like his own.
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like the ability to smile, speak, and eat again with the comfort and confidence, then dental implants are your answer. Our Dental Implant Specialists have been helping patients reshape smiles for many years. For additional information about implant dentistry, contact us today.
