What are Dental Implants?

They are the only tooth replacement option that becomes a permenant part of your jaw. They contain three different parts: the post, the abutment, and the restoration.

How Do They Work?

When surgically placed into the jaw, the implant posts fuse naturally with bone and tissue. This bonding process is called osseointegration, and it is an essential step in the tooth replacement process. Once the bonding is complete, your implant will form a secure and long-lasting foundation for your new restoration.

From there, our dentists will recommend the best course of action for successful tooth replacement. They work with you to create a treatment plan based on your unique situation. Implant restorations can make excellent options if you have lost teeth due to trauma, necessary extraction, or advanced gum disease. They can also be right for you if your smile cannot successfully support traditional crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Do I Qualify for Dental Implants?

If you are over eighteen and in good oral and general health, you may qualify for dental implants. However, successful treatment requires healthy gums and a strong, dense jawbone. If your jawbone is lacking in strength and density, you can still benefit!

There are a wide variety of structural procedures designed to help and prepare your jaw for treatment. These often include bone grafts and sinus lifts. Our dentists can collaborate with local periodontists and oral surgeons to see that you receive the right preliminary treatments to achieve successful dental implant treatment.

What are The Benefits?

Dental Implants can provide you with many advantages. Since they replace every part of a lost tooth, they offer significant improvements for your dental health and quality of life.
