Dental Implants

dentist explaining tooth implantsHave you ever wondered what your smile might look like if that missing tooth wasn’t missing? There are several ways to fill that gap with a “tooth” that looks and feels exactly like your other teeth.

One popular and high-tech way to restore missing teeth is through dental implants. These are used as an alternative to dentures and bridges. Why? Because they have many advantages, including their completely natural appearance, their convenience and their ability to maintain bone mass – a quality that makes additional tooth loss far less likely.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are made up of a titanium screw and a post that is covered with a crown, bridge or denture. We place the implant into the jawbone where it replaces the tooth root. After several months, the implant attaches to the bone, so it now looks and “acts” just like a natural tooth.

What to Expect

A patient needs to be evaluated to ensure there is enough bone available to secure the implant. Impressions are taken to provide the necessary mold for a customized implant.

When it’s time to place your implant, we’ll incorporate [anesthetic] so that you don’t feel a thing and remain calm and comfortable the entire time. Once the implant is firmly embedded into the bone, a post is attached to it and then the doctor creates a permanent tooth replacement.

It’s important to remember that your new implant will look and function just as your natural teeth. This means you’ll be able to chew easily and speak properly, with the added bonus of having a new, beautiful tooth to complete your smile.
