Dental Implants

If one or more of your teeth are broken or missing, dental implants are an exceptional choice for you. They are commonly used to replace missing roots.  A dental implant is essentially an artificial root made of titanium metal that serves as an anchor point for the replacement tooth to position itself in. Rest assured because this procedure has a high success rate and the resulting tooth looks like natural teeth. They are also easy to maintain and last for a long time.

The Procedure

Our team of doctors will examine your mouth and take X-rays of your jaw and teeth to determine the size and shape of implants you need. During the procedure, a dental implant is carefully placed into your jawbone just beneath the gums. Stitches will be used to bond the gum tissue into place. The healing process will take place between three to six months. Over this time, the implant will bond with the bone and attach to your gums. Lastly, a small post will be attached to the implant to connect the replacement tooth to the implant.

Are dental implants right for me?

Dental implants are a safe and effective way to improve the condition of your teeth. It does not matter what age you are, we can help you restore your teeth back to normal. Our doctors will perform a thorough examination of your teeth to offer the best options for your needs. Suitable candidates for dental implants need to have an adequate bone level and density, must not be prone to infection and must be willing to maintain good oral hygiene practices.

After a dental implant treatment.

Patients should care and maintain dental implants as their natural teeth. It is recommended that you come back for frequent follow-up visits to monitor your implant, gums, and teeth to make sure they are healthy. Regular check-ups are important to ensure that your bite is correct and your implants are secured.
