Dental Implant Placement


What are dental implants?

Dental Implants are the BEST option for replacing missing teeth. If you are missing one, or multiple, or even all of your teeth, dental implants can replace them permanently, effectively, and give the best long term prognosis of any available tooth replacement option. They preserve the health of the surrounding teeth, function and look just like your natural teeth.

A dental implant is made of titanium and looks similar to a screw. The implant is threaded into the jaw bone where the tooth is missing. The dental implant acts as the root of the tooth, creating a foundation for a restorative crown to be placed by your general dentist, at a later time, once the implant has completely bonded with the jawbone. Your general dentist will take the necessary impressions to fabricate the restorative tooth, teeth, or denture that will attach to the dental implant. The entire procedure typically takes between six and eight months.
