Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. Patients should consider dental implants if they are missing one or several teeth, and also if they need or have dentures but prefer them to be permanently affixed.  


Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Implants look like natural teeth
  • Does not require any treatment to adjacent teeth like bridges do
  • Implants are durable and long-lasting
  • Implants are permanently affixed
  • Implants slow the progression of bone loss which can cause premature aging


The Implant Process

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 temporary crowns 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. One this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. Some offices have an onsite lab to create the crown, but others will have to send it to an outside lab. Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
