Dental implants offer an innovative method of tooth replacement that can provide stable, durable, and natural-looking results. Dental implants are designed to look and function just like normal teeth. They can also be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth. In addition, since dental implants are securely held in place, you can avoid many of the common complaints patients have about traditional removable dentures, such as slippage or gum irritation. Dental implants have given many of our patients a healthy, younger-looking smile and improved the overall quality of their daily lives.
The dental implant procedure is performed in two stages. First, a titanium post is implanted in the gap left by the missing tooth to serve as a durable artificial "root." These posts should gradually fuse to the jawbone, which allows dental implants to serve as a strong and long lasting form of tooth replacement. In many cases, temporary crowns may be placed directly on the new implants to fill in the spaces while the implants heal over several months. Once the fusion of the titanium post is complete, a custom-made crown is affixed to it. These crowns are designed to fit seamlessly with your other teeth, matching the shade and shape of your smile for an inconspicuous and natural look and feel. With proper care, dental implants can last for decades.
