Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth in most patients. They are engineered and designed to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Our doctors work closely with a local implant surgeon to ensure your implant is placed in the correct position and shaped appropriately.
After the dental implant post is placed by the surgeon, a minor waiting period is needed to ensure bone grown around the implant and it is stable. Once this is confirmed our doctors can work to make the crown that screws into the implant.
Dental implants not only are placed in bone, they actually help prevent bone loss! When a tooth is missing, the bone in that area tends to resorb over time. It is virtually impossible to ever get that bone back. But, by placing an implant into the unused bone, the bone now has a function. Our body will naturally want to keep making bone to attach onto and support the dental implant.
Unsure if dental implants are the right option for you? No worries, we are here to help explain this process and get you in touch with the right surgeon for the first step of your treatment!
