Dental implants are a durable, natural looking solution for missing teeth. Implants are made from biocompatible titanium in the form of tooth roots which permanently attached to your jawbone, so they function and look just like natural teeth. Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. They are a superior restoration to the conventional bridge which uses the adjacent teeth to support the missing tooth. By placing an implant instead of a bridge you preserve the adjacent teeth from be prepared for crowns and by keeping teeth separated, allows flossing and better hygiene.

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits spread over several months. The first visit involves evaluating the space and bone available for the implant. X-rays and impressions of your mouth are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. If there is questionable remaining bone quantity, a 3D scan is taken to more accurately evaluate the recipient site. The implant will be surgically placed into the jawbone and allowed to heal for 3 months. Once the implant has healed and has fused with the bone, a beautiful, natural looking crown will be attached on top of the implant.
You will receive instructions for care when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
