Dental Implants

Dental implants are a healthy solution for replacing missing teeth. They may seem like a recent innovation, but implants have actually been used successfully for over 40 years!

The Anatomy of an Implant

A dental implant is a small titanium post placed in your jaw by a skilled oral surgeon and takes the place of the lost root. Titanium is a biocompatible material, meaning your body easily accepts it. During healing, the implant bonds with bone and tissue in your jaw and becomes a permanent part of your dental structure.

After the implant heals, we can choose one of several dental restorations to act as the visible, functional part of the implant. Depending on your needs we may recommend a dental crown, bridge, or full or partial denture.

The Final Touch For Your Crown

The end result is a new tooth that feels and acts as close to a natural tooth as possible. Your implant is permanent, and your restoration won’t decay. However, you still need to be proactive with your oral health because healthy gums are essential to the success of your implant.
