Dental implants are changing the way people live! They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything. They now can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
What are Dental Implants?
The best way to describe a dental implant is to compare it to a real tooth. A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. The part of the tooth that you see and eat with is called the crown. Beneath the crown is the root, which anchors the tooth through the gum tissue to the jaw bone. When you lose a tooth, you loose both the root and the crown. To replace a tooth, we first have to replace the root. Essentially, a dental implant is a new root. The titanium root is fitted into a socket that we create in your jaw, replacing the lost root of your natural tooth.
Dental implants come in various shapes and sizes and have different types of surfaces. The actual implant selection will depend on a variety of factors related to your specific treatment needs and the most appropriate one(s) will be used. Once an implant has been placed in the jaw, the bone around the implant will need to heal for two to six months, depending on the density of your bone. When this initial phase of healing is completed, a support post called an abutment will be placed into the implant itself and then a new crown will be placed on top. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.
Our Doctors have placed thousands of implants for the past 20+ years.

The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jaw bone. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant which protrudes through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. The whole process is done with little or no discomfort.
Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which can occur when teeth are missing.
